Actor Mila Kunis talks about her new film and her experience of rubbing shoulders with James Franco.
Legend has it that witches are probably horrifying and hideous. But actor Mila Kunis defies the convention by playing a pretty witch Theodara in her next, Oz: The Great and Powerful that hits the screens here today. Kunis talks about the film and her equation with her co-star James Franco, who plays the lead in the flick.
Did you identify with Theodora?
Yes and I think every girl is going to identify with Theodora. It’s about a girl who’s so sweet and so desperately wants to believe in good. She is in so much denial of the bad that she doesn’t even think it exists.
What intrigued you about Oz?
When I read the script, my first thought was I can’t do this, but I went to meet with director Sam Raimi anyway. We broke down the character and the script and Sam grounded everything in reality, which was incredibly comforting to me.
How was it like working with James Franco?
James and I have known each other for a while. He’s a really good friends. It’s very rare when you leave a production with a friend. I think we really do enjoy working with one another and we have similar work ethic.
