The ever stunning Mila Kunis looked healthy and fit at the 11th Annual AFI Awards. Mila recently lost 20 pounds for her role in Black Swan. Her mother did not approve of the drastic weight loss!
The actress went on a punishing diet and exercise regime that sent her weight plummeting to 98 pounds to play the part of a ballerina. According to E! Online, the actress said her weight loss was so extreme it concerned her family.
“It was the most intense training I’ve ever had in my life, and probably will have for anything. I lost 20 pounds, so I went down to 95 pounds. I weigh 117 usually, like today. I looked like Gollum [from 'The Lord of the Rings'].”
Kunis’ preparation for the role was admittedly intense. She restricted herself to a 1,200-calorie-a-day diet, in addition to ballet classes for four hours a day, seven days a week.
“My mom freaked out,” Kunis said. “She was like, ‘You have to promise me this isn’t going to affect you.’ I was like, ‘I promise it won’t, but it might take me a little time to be OK with having a little more fat on me.’”
Kunis also admitted she hated looking at her shapeless body in the mirror.
“I could see why this industry is so f****d up, because … I would literally look at myself in the mirror and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ I had no shape, no boobs, no ass … all you saw was the bone. I was like, ‘This looks gross.’”
Kunis continued: “In real life, I looked disgusting, but in photographs and on film, it looked amazing.”
As soon as filming wrapped, she indulged in all her favorite meals — namely burgers and Chinese food. “It took me five months to lose 20 pounds, and it took me hours to gain it back!” she jokes.
