Mila Kunis to quit acting?
Oz The Great and Powerful actress Mila Kunis has said that she's willing and ready to put her personal life ahead of her career in movie making. Though she's only just beginning to land major A-List roles, since being cast as the dangerously sexy Lily in Black Swan, she's prepared to pack it all in for the chance to enjoy a normal family life.
In an interview with her 'OZ The Great and Powerful' co-star James Franco for Playboy magazine, the 29 year old actress said: 'I want to be a present mom. When I was growing up both my mom and dad worked full-time. I guess the only thing I can say about that is they worked full-time in one location. I'm never in the same place for more than two months. How am I ever going to have a family like that? You have to make compromises. If that means I do one movie a year, if people still want to see me and hire me and I don't suck by that point, great. But my only source of happiness can't be dependent on something so fickle. And I find this industry to be incredibly fickle... There's a documentary you should see called 'Searching for Debra Winger', about how this industry affects women in their 30s. Realistically speaking, it's hard. Do you want to have a life, or do you want to have a career? Sometimes you can find a happy medium, but in this industry it's rare. You have to choose: privacy or career... I think in this industry, age is particular to women versus men. Why? Because that's just how it is.'
What's more, though doing incredibly well at the moment, she doesn't see her maintaining any sort of career longevity beyond the next few years:
'It all depends on whether people care to see me in five years or not, and you can't predict that. It's weird that at the age of 29 I'm talking about aging in this industry, but the truth is I don't think I can do this for the rest of my life. I want to be a producer. That's really want I want, because I love this work in a weird, sick way. But I also want a life. I want a family - just, like, one day, not tomorrow.'
