Hollywood actor Mila Kunis says she doesn’t base her happiness on her career. The actor, who has got rave reviews for her performance in ballet movie

, insists she can separate her personal and professional lives and refuses to let the opinions of critics or Hollywood bosses determine who she is, contactmusic.com reports. “I’ve survived in this industry because I made a conscious decision that my career was going to be not who I am but what I do. I detach myself from it on a daily basis and have done my entire life,” Kunis said.

“The problem with anything to do with entertainment is if your happiness is based on what you do, you’re doomed to failure,” the 27-year-old said.“I think I would go crazy if all my life and all my happiness were dependent upon acting because the problem with this industry is that it’s all a matter of opinion,” she added.

“Someone might think I’m a great actor, someone else might think I suck. Neither is wrong, it’s just a matter of opinion. So if I gauge my happiness on another person’s opinion I’d want to kill myself,” the actor added.
