Mila Kunis has been a household name ever since she first landed the role of Jackie on That 70's Show when she was just 14-years-old. She has grown-up in the public eye, but her vivacious and funny attitude make her more than just a gorgeous face.
She's an icon.
She's been nominated for SAG awards and Golden Globes. She has presented at The Oscars. She's had two steady, crazy-successful TV gigs, in addition to multiple movie roles.
Is there nothing Mila can't do?
Nope. Because oh, yeah - that's right; she's a MOM, too. She is the mother of not just one, but two adorable little peanuts with fellow That 70's Show alum Ashton Kutcher.
Just like so many other moms, she's on the front lines of toddler and babyhood, changing diapers and burping babies and probably even watching - sigh - Paw Patrol.
Think about it; she and Ashton might go through difficulties getting their toddler to stay in bed every night, just like nearly every other mom and dad on the planet. Whuut? Can that be true?
It's especially hard to believe when looking at photographs of Ms. Kunis. She sometimes rocks the red carpet and looks like a fashionista when courtside with her boo, but she also looks like a young, uber-cool woman when running errands in jeans and a t-shirt.
No matter what she's wearing, she makes it really hard to remember she's a mother...
Of course, she looks beautiful; er, duh! That is a given for Mila Kunis.
But can we just say - Dang, girl! Because Mila clearly isn't one of those stars who fumbles with the whole first-pitch thing, shakily lobbing the ball and missing the home plate region entirely. We've seen countless male celebrities underwhelm with their first-pitching abilities, but not Mila.
No, our girl pitched like she was the Cubs' closer that day, letting loose and showing off a pretty impressive arm. When you look at this photo, a lot of things come to mind.
The fact that she's a mother isn't one of them.
I wouldn't want to mess with this girl. The woman in this photo looks like if you stood in her way, she might run you right over. The woman in this photo looks determined to win.
This lady is going to get what she wants - period.
Yet...the actress in this picture, in all likelihood, has already today rained kisses all over her kiddos' faces. She's probably already played peek-a-boo and carried a child until her arms were tired. Rummaged through the house looking for a lost binky.
She has definitely changed multiple diapers. Hard to believe, right?
Her jacket. His hat. Her amazing pants, her dope shoes, and his righteous shoes, as well.
Pretty much everything these two are wearing is stylish and tight, just like the general vibe of this dynamic duo. They look like they could leave the game and head to a popular club, trendy restaurant or a gallery opening, right?
Instead, they're probably leaving the game and heading home, where toddler and baby are waiting. They're probably going to engage in some hardcore, edgy as heck diaper-changing and storytelling before downing chocolate milk cups and turning in.
This makeup. Seriously. Most moms can't find the time to even slather on a little foundation and blush before walking out the door. Sometimes I scramble just to finger-comb my hair and un-crust the eyelashes that are stuck together from the previous day's mascara.
The face in this photo, though; no mom wears makeup like this. Ever.
This is a face that did not have children pounding on the bathroom door, or better yet, squirming on her lap, while the makeup was being applied. This face is an artistic masterpiece that was untouched by chubby little paws.
She's definitely a mom, though, right? We're sure?
Where is this lady's mother? Because she doesn't even look old enough to be on the red carpet, much less be a mother. Did her dad drive her there? Hopefully, the award show's quick because it's a school night. Does her mom know she's wearing that dress? Someone get that girl a coat.
Yes, this photo would definitely make everyone forget she's a mother. It seems like a picture that should end up in a high school yearbook, not on an entertainment website.
That being said, she looks downright adorable. It had to have been nerve-wracking, walking that first red carpet, and she did it with sweet style.
It's not just the fact that she's on the red carpet in a stunning dress that makes us forget she's a mom. It's the way she flawlessly pulls it off. You could throw me in this dress (ahem - bigger size) and drop me onto a red carpet, but I would fool no one.
The hair tie on my wrist, milk stain on my shoulder and the awkward starstruck smile would give my she-doesn't belong-here away.
But Mila looks born to wear this gown. Nothing about this look gives away the reality that she's got two kids. I wonder if she turns around, if we might see a lollipop stuck to the back of her dress.
No one looking at this photo thinks "I bet that girl on the back is a mom!"
Even without seeing her face, Mila looks cool, fun and straight-up down-for-anything. Her nails are perfect, her flats tres adorbs; this chick is born to ride but in really cute street fashion.
But I wonder; where were they going? Was this pre-kids, and they were headed somewhere fun where they would have epic adventures? Or was this post-baby, and they were zipping around to get an hour of sanity before returning to the diapered munchkins? Perhaps they grabbed a sitter just long enough to take a kidless ride to the gas station and back.
I'd do that.
If this picture is any indication, Bad Moms 2 looks to be an even wilder ride than the original. And though the trio in this photo is technically in a movie about moms, this image doesn't bring to mind mommyhood.
At all. In any way, shape or form.
What it does bring to mind are shenanigans, tomfoolery and raucous good times, which are definitely not words used to describe parenthood, right?
Mila and pals look like they're having a great time in this movie, and they kind of make this mom think it's time for a girls' night out.
What are the odds of me finding a babysitter on such short notice?
Moms don't run around with Justin Timberlake. Moms run around with other moms, their husbands, and of course, the car full of children that they sometimes begin to think of as their BFFs simply from the massive amounts of quality time spent together.
So this photo, well, it reminds us that Mila is not just a mom. She's out there making movies with people like Justin Timberlake while we are at home, making iMovies of the tiny humans that share our last name as they do exciting things like sleep and eat.
Way to remind us you aren't one of us, Mila.
I go to Starbucks. I go to Starbucks in jeans and a sweater.
I do exactly what Mila is doing in this picture, yet I totally "mom" it up all over the place.
I somehow manage to convey, just by the knot in the back of my hair or the binky in my back pocket, that I am a mother on a desperate hunt for life-giving caffeine.
That's not the vibe I get from this photo. She looks like she could be on the set of a movie, doesn't she? Maybe she is! Yeah, maybe this is actually a scene from a motion picture. That could be a thing, right?
That notion makes me feel so much better.
She looks rough, ornery and like someone who might not take kindly to the squalling of noisy children.
The woman is this photo does not resemble a mother. I mean, yeah, she looks like she didn't do her hair that day, so that's kind of mom-like. And yes, she isn't wearing much make-up - that's also mom-like.
Hmm...I might be wrong. Look at the over-sized t-shirt just hanging off of her shoulder as she clearly doesn't care. All of a sudden I'm changing my tune on this woman.
The woman in this photo could very well be a mother of an infant after 36 hours of no sleep and a colicky baby.
Clearly, this woman is not a mother, because she's Dorothy. She says There's no place like home - a mom would never say that, right?
A mom knows there are a lot of places that require less work and attention from her than at her home.
In reality, a mom would probably enjoy a brief respite in a shiny land with golden sidewalks and flying dogs. If Auntie Em were safely back home, babysitting the kiddos, a mom might actually plop down on the yellow brick road and have an adult beverage or two in the name of self-care and relaxation.
Yeah, um, moms don't get many nights off, looking perfectly gorgeous. It'd be cool if we did, and I can't say I wouldn't enjoy looking like Mila in this photo, but...naw.
Because except for the occasional vacation, we rarely hit the resto sans children. So when we're there, we're usually super alert, ready to calm our little munchkins should they get too loud and ruin the dining experience for everyone else.
This picture of Mila is a picture of a cute girl on a date. You sure she's a mom, bro?
Not that moms aren't fun, but the girl in this photo just looks WAY too fun to be a mom, doesn't she? She looks young and athletic and the life of the party.
I think Mila's good luck at this Ping-Pong event totally rests on the shoulders of their children, by the way. After all, moms earn wicked-good eye-hand coordination from doing things like prying items from sticky fists, catching toddlers who attempt to evade bedtime, and wrangling the tantruming ones as they fall on the floor of the grocery store floor.
Good job, Mila and Ashton, but let's give the munchkins credit for this one.
That dress. We can't remember she's a mom when we see this picture, mainly because we can't remember anything other than the words red, black, and stunning. That dress is red carpet perfection, and her hair - come on with that. So lovely. This look is flawless and elegant and landed her on more than one best-dressed lists.
She pulls it off, this mom-friend of ours, somehow looking graceful and poised when she's most-likely getting texts from the sitter that her daughter can't find her favorite toy. There's probably at least one Peppa Pig figurine in her designer clutch.
Skin - flawless. Makeup - sublime. Hair - helmety-amazing. Dress - gorg.
I like to think, when I look at this picture, that her kids are playing in the next room, yelling mom! over and over while she poses for the camera. And the second the photographer got this picture, they came screaming in the room, climbing to her lap like explorers on Everest.
They immediately proceeded to tousle her hair and leave a couple mom-spots on that dress.
The envious mother in me somehow finds her flawlessness more palatable that way.
Moms wear sweatsuits, so this picture shouldn't be that hard to believe. But somehow, Mila wears it in a way that ups its fashion value.
We're not sure if it's the plush fabric, good makeup or attractive hubby, but even in a track suit, she doesn't look the mom part.
Of course, she also owns an amazing don't-mess-with-me expression, which is probably what makes this look take more of a Bad A direction than a Mommy's sweats vibe. She looks like someone cool, and also like someone who doesn't have time for nonsense.
Get out of her way, dude.
Of course, this picture makes you forget she's a mom; she's a teenager in this picture.
I would call this girl to come over and babysit my kids while I ran an errand.
But even back then she already had some kind of a star vibe about her. It makes perfect sense that she landed the part on That 70's Show; she was destined to make it.
And she did. The rest was history, as they say. Since then we've seen her in movie after movie, and as it turns out, the girl is good.
She's so together in this photo, which is darn-near impossible to be when you're a mom, right?
Her sleek hair, the good makeup, the way-cool off-shoulder top; her look is on pointe.
What mom is ever 100% on pointe? I could wear this outfit, but there would definitely be a spot or two of whatever my kiddos were the last eating that would be smudged on the front. The hair would certainly be a bit tousled because my kids crawl all over me like I'm a jungle gym.
And forget about that makeup. If I get three minutes to wash my face in the morning, that's as close to good makeup as I'm going to get.
Yeah, she's pretty much the coolest spokeswoman ever. She holds a lowball glass like it's supposed to be in her hand and she maneuvers the space of a warehouse as if she spends her days inspecting barrels and hauling them around on her shoulders.
When I watch the commercials, I assume she's thoroughly involved in the process of making the mommy special drink.
Not only do I not think "mom" when I see these advertisements, I don't even think "celebrity." I pretty much just think that I will never be as cool as that girl in the warehouse.
And she's someone's mom. Technically, she's two someone's mom. Wow.
The girl in this photo knows what they're doing wrong. She knows what the Warriors are missing on their offense, and she's letting Ashton in on the secret.
Why aren't they popping it out to Steph every single time? If Coach Kerr knew what she knows, they'd be winning games and scoring a lot of points.
Oh, wait. Maybe he does know since the Warriors are having yet another fairly-decent season.
The big question? Do Ashton and Mila know that the woman behind them is about to take a picture of the back of their heads?
One look at this picture and you're thinking of all the teenage years you spent holed-up in your bedroom with a phone to your ear.
You're thinking about mixed tapes, Smackers lip gloss and posters that were ripped straight from magazines and affixed to your walls with transparent tape.
You're not thinking that this chick is a mom, that's for sure. You're not thinking that this chick has changed hundreds of diapers in her lifetime, and you're definitely not thinking she's clocked a lot of hours in a rocking chair with a baby in her arms.
The barrette and rainbow shirt back that up.
Now let's have a look at the pictures that remind us she's a mom...
Oh, look - she is one of us! She is full-on mama bear here, with her baby strapped to her chest and a stuffed animal cradled in her elbow. She's watching, but she knows that it is probably fleeting. Any minute now and she's going to have to either take her daughter to the bathroom, change her son's diaper or rummage through her bag for snacks. That's just the way it goes when a mom is trying to actually watch something.
And you know these two parents had to switch kiddos hallway through, just to keep them this happily entertained.
Been there, done that. We feel you, Mila and Ashton.
We totally empathize, Mila. It doesn't matter how tiny the baby; when they're in the baby carrier, it feels as though they are at least a thousand pounds.
The trick, as she surely knows, is rotation. First, carry with the left arm. Next, carry with the right arm. Then, when your arms are burning, carry with both arms and the elbow-wrap.
Every mom in the world can relate to the joy of hauling around the heavy, bulky, hard plastic baby carrier. The special way it's impossible to maneuver through narrow spaces without bumping into bystanders; yeah, good times.
The mom game is tough, and infant carriers are a serious part of early training. Good news, though; they eventually outgrow that thing.
They look like the perfect family, don't they? Cool jeans for all! I can guarantee that my little fam has never looked this good when out-and-about, even when we've tried. I mean, the toddler's socks actually match and Mila's shirt has zero stains.
What is this magical witchcraft that she performs? I can buy a brand new 10-pack of toddler socks, and those things become mismatched the moment they're taken out of the packaging.
How does she do it?
Even when Mila is super momming, she does it with a panache that is totally rockstar status.
