Actress Mila Kunis (“Perfect Is Mother!”) lied about her age to get the role of Jackie Burkhart in the series “That ’70s Show”, which aired between 1998 and 2006. , the actress herself told the truth in an interview with Variety.
“There’s a rumor going around that I may or may not have lied about my age,” Kunis said. “I’d like to make it very clear now that I lied. I did it.”
When he auditioned for the series, Kunis said he was 18 years old. However, she was only 14 years old at the time. But the lie did not take long to be unmasked.
“By the time I went to what was then an audition with a producer at the network, you have to sign a contract before you can get the job and in my contract I had to put an asterisk saying I needed ‘studio teacher'” , she continued. “They said, ‘What do you mean by that?’ And I was like, ‘PS, I’m 14.’ But at that point, when I vented to the creators, they were like, ‘We loved you on that audition, so who cares?'”
Although older than her co-stars, Kunis was the age of her character on the show. “I was never treated as a minor back then,” she said. “The reason I don’t do drugs is because nobody on set did. And I looked up to them at 14. My career trajectory could have gone anywhere, but the set was cool.”
She also ended up meeting her future husband on the series. The two lived together in the attraction, but only fell in love six years after the end of the series, in 2012, when they would start a relationship that became a marriage with two children.
The couple, by the way, will reprise the roles of Jackie and Kelso in the series “That ’90s Show”, which will be distributed by Netflix. In addition, Kunis can be seen in “A Very Lucky Girl”, which debuted this Friday (7/10) also on Netflix.
