Born Milena Markovna Kunis on August 14, 1983, in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, Mila Kunis and her family moved to Los Angeles when she was 7-years-old. To help adept to their new surroundings, Mila's parents enrolled her in an acting program at Beverly Hills Studio where she was introduced to her future talent manager Susan Curtis. She quickly began landing minor roles in productions like the family drama series 7th Heaven (1996 - 1997) before obtaining her big break as Jackie Burkhart in the sitcom That '70s Show (1998) at the age of 14.
