Mila Kunis says Hollywood needs more leading female roles

Mila Kunis, who stars in the upcoming film Bad Moms, shed a light on the struggles of being put in “little boxes” and trying to work on more than just television shows and romantic comedy movies.


"The only way to do that was to not have an ego and hustle. I just auditioned for everybody," Kunis said in an interview on ABC News' "Popcorn With Peter Travers."


"All my 20s was about proving people wrong, so to speak, about putting me in little boxes."

Kunis, who starred in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Black Swan and That 70’s Show, addressed the difficulties in creating a successful female-led film.


"The hardest part about all of this is when a movie that is starring women does well, everyone goes, 'Wow, that's amazing.' … But when it goes bad, then everyone goes, 'We knew it. We knew this was going to happen,'" Kunis said.


"A male-driven film, it doesn't matter, whether it's good or bad, no one comments on it. It's just either good or bad. With a female-driven film, it's females. 'Well this female succeeded, or this female failed.' It's going to have to change one day."


As the head of Orchard Farm Productions, her own production company, Kunis explained she tried to change the industry by bringing more female talents together and female-driven concepts to television.


Although the television industry has become more open-minded, the actress points out that writers' rooms are still lacking in female talent.


Kunis is very thankful for the support of her husband and "hands-on dad" Ashton Kutcher when transitioning back  to work. 


"I really do have an incredible husband, who's supportive of any decision I make and not only supports me, but is, you know, there for the family as well," she said.





















"I think that we as women, not even moms, but as women, put too much pressure on ourselves to be what is considered perfect in society, you know socially speaking. All the time I feel stressed, but it’s all self-induced."
