Mila Kunis Gained 20 Pounds After "Black Swan"

Mila Kunis was a thin ballerina in the movie Black Swan, but the actress admits that her slim dancer physique only lasted about 5 days after the movie wrapped.

“I trained four hours a day, seven days a week, for seven months,” she said. “I had one day off on my birthday and half a day off for the Emmys and the Golden Globes. On those days my ballet instructor worked with me from 5am to 11am, then I went to hair and make-up and on to the awards shows.

 “I lost 20lb. Aesthetically, I had to look like a ballerina and hold myself like one. By the end, I was 95lb. All you saw was bone. It looked disgusting, but in photographs and on film it looked amazing. It took me five months to lose the weight, but just five days to gain it all back.”

Mila also admitted that her parents think her job is "absurd."

“My father is a mechanical engineer,” she said. “My mother is a physics teacher. They have this hard-working son who’s a biochemist in San Diego, trying to cure cancer and who can barely pay the rent. Then they have me — this daughter who earns an obscene amount of money for not doing anything. They think my job is absurd.”
