I have no shame playing risque roles, says Mila Kunis

London, July 17 (ANI): Mila Kunis has said that she is definitely "game" when it comes to taking on titillating roles in movies.

The 28-year-old actress did a raunchy scene with Natalie Portman in 'Black Swan' and stripped down with Justin Timberlake in 'Friends With Benefits.'

Kunis got candid during an interview with her 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' co-star James Franco.

Recalling another film Franco has recently been working on in New Orleans, titled 'The End of the World,' the actor tells Kunis about an actress who walked off-set because she was unhappy about a risque scene.

The 34-year-old actor explained that the situation reminded him about how fearless Kunis was when it came to daring on-screen behaviour.

"I guess you could say that I have no shame. I mean, if you think about all the stuff that you've made me do-just you alone, James," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling Interview magazine.

"We don't have to get into details, but that poor girl would never be able to do a short with you.

"She would never be able to have fake blood thrown at her, with blood-sucking vampires and dildos being thrown everywhere," she said.

Aside from 'Oz: The Great and Powerful,' Franco and Kunis have worked on several projects together including 'Funny Or Die' videos, a feature called 'Tar' and the said vampire thriller, in which Franco describedKunis' character as "leather-clad, bow-and-arrow-wielding vampire killer" who dealt with a lot "of blood and gore."

"That would not be okay for that girl. I, on the other hand, am game," Kunis said.

The actress was however, quick to point out that female stars do have to be more guarded about the choices that they make than men.

"I think that an actor was more likely to be forgiven in the public's eye than an actress...I think there will always be a double standard between males and females, so I think that an actress is more likely to protect her public persona, so to speak, than an actor would be.

"An actor goes crazy in a hotel room, gets trashed, throws a bench, breaks a window, and he is considered a rock star. An actress does that and she's sent to rehab and is thought to have problems and issues and can't get a job," she added.

Off-screen, Mila, who is rumoured to be dating former 'That 70's Show' co-star Ashton Kutcher, said that it "can go both ways."

"I think that when a person is insecure about who they are or who they want to be, then it translates on screen, and the choices they make are all about perception.

"If I'm not comfortable in my own skin or confident in who I am, then I'm going to pick parts based on how people are going to view them, not based on what I find challenging or entertaining.

"And I think that there are a lot of reasons to be insecure as an actress . . . But I don't really have a perception issue. I've been pretty good about being who I am in the public's eye," she said.

The actress said that she don't necessarily put on an act when she goes on Jay Leno or dress differently in public than she does in private and that she'd like to think that she' the same person, more or less.

"So when it comes to picking parts, I do make an effort to choose parts that I want to do, and not necessarily parts someone else wants me to do, or parts that someone else is going to respond to.

"I've said this before, but after 'That '70s Show' ended, I solely wanted do films that inspire me, and to work with people who make me better. I wanted to just surround myself with people who I think are better than I am, whether they're actors or directors or producers, so that I could learn from them.

"And I think that's pretty much what I've done. I think that if I hadn't done it that way, then I would've just stunted myself," she said. (ANI)
