Black Swan star Mila Kunis believes being poor as a youngster helped make her a successful actor.



The 28-year-old, who rose to fame on That 70's Show at the age of 14, said being the daughter of poor immigrants from Ukraine has helped her develop the thick skin she needs to survive in Hollywood, reported Contactmusic.



"You build it up. My dad always said I have a really good backbone. I grew up in L.A, I didn't grow up wealthy or even middle class, we were pretty poor and you learn how life works very quickly. The best advice I've been given? That sometimes it's OK to be wrong - you can't always play it safe," Kunis said.



The actor is currently riding high on the success of her films like Black Swan and Friends With Benefits.
