Actress Mila Kunis immigrated to the U.S. at the age of seven as the Soviet Union fell. In order to accelerate her learning of English, Kunis’s father enrolled her in after-school acting classes at the Beverly Hills Studio when she was nine. She quickly found success in commercials and television shows, eventually landing a major role—at just 14 years old—in the long-running sitcom That ‘70s Show. After the series ended, landed a major role in the 2008 romantic comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall. She has since appeared in The Book of Eli, Oz the Great and Powerful, and Black Swan, for which she won numerous awards and nominations.
