Mila Kunis

Milena Markovna Kunis (Милена Маркoвна Кунис), born August 14, 1983), better known as Mila Kunis, is an American actress. She is best known for playing Jackie Burkhart on That '70s Show, and also performs the voice of the character Meg Griffin on the popular animated series, Family Guy. Kunis was born in Kiev, Ukrainian SSR, Soviet Union (now Ukraine), to a Jewish family, with whom she moved to Los Angeles, California, in the United States, when she was 7. Kunis has stated many times that she is nothing like Jackie, her character on the show, insisting that she is really more of the cute girl-next-door type with a dash of tomboy thrown in for good measure. Despite this docile description, she has shown a different attitude by her sultry appearance on the cover of the men's magazine Stuff in December of 2005. Maxim magazine named her #47 on its 2006 Hot 100 list.

Kunis' inimitable, instantly recognizable voice has earned her several other notable roles, including starring in the Aerosmith music video "Jaded", The Strokes music video "The End Has No End", as well as several movies, such as Piranha (1995), Santa with Muscles (1996), Krippendorf's Tribe (1998), Gia (1998), Get Over It (2001), American Psycho II: All American Girl (2002), and Tony n' Tina's Wedding (2004). She is starring with Jon Heder in the upcoming film Moving McAllister.

Kunis is the voice of Meg Griffin in the animated TV show Family Guy, and of several characters on the Adult Swim show Robot Chicken. She has acted as the voice of Tanya Winters in the video game Saints Row. She is filming a movie in Fiji called Boot Camp.
