In this article, we will cover the net worth of Mila Kunis, her childhood, personal life, professional career, and others. Read the full article to know everything about her, from Mila Kunis’ net worth to her personal life.
What Is the Net Worth of Mila Kunis?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the estimated net worth of Mila Kunis is around $75 million. She has appeared in many successful projects and also lent her voice for animated series that most notably include “Family Guy” where she voiced the character of “Meg”.
The key voice actors of Family Guy earned $100,000 each episode which totals nearly $2 million yearly, per actor. They can earn additional royalties from the sale of DVDs, merchandise and syndication deals.
After taking a dig into her net worth, let’s have a look at Mila Kunis’ childhood development and early life.
Mila Kunis was born on August 14, 1983, in Chernivtsi, Ukraine (previously part of the Soviet Union). Through the age of 7, she was brought up with her brother in Ukraine, and then the family decided to relocate to Los Angeles, California.
Though her family wasn’t poor, that was the highest amount of money that they were entitled to take, and the degrees & qualifications of none of her parents were transferable upon reaching the US.
The reason behind such a big move of leaving the Soviet Union was increasing anti-semitism and the lack of career opportunities for Mila as well as her brother.
Mila faced difficulties in adjusting to Elementary School, and soon after when she began high school, she landed on the cast of “That 70s Show”. To receive her GED, she used to take classes on set the majority of the time.
In 2002, Mila Kunis started dating actor Macaulay Culkin. The duo struggled to stay away from the limelight in order to maintain their privacy throughout their relationship. They broke up in 2011 on good terms. She then started dating her “That 70s Show” co-star Ashton Kutcher in 2012. In 2015, they tied the knot and had two kids.
Mila Kunis has worked really hard to earn a good net worth and establish her name. At the age of nine years old, Mila first started acting as part of an after-school program.
A manager spotted her soon and began sending her out on auditions. She made her way to her first audition for a Barbie commercial. Mila’s first TV roles include shows such as Days of Our Lives, Baywatch, and 7th Heaven.
When Kunis was 14, she landed the cast of the 1998 sitcom “That 70s Show” portraying the character, Jackie Burkhart. The show gained massive popularity and ran for eight seasons. At the age of 14, she was portraying an 18-year-old character.
Yet, the producers found that she was a perfect fit for the role. Apparently, she won many awards for her performance on the show. This has contributed a lot to building Mila Kunis’ net worth.
After a year, she was booked for the animated comedy series “Family Guy” to voice the character of “Meg” and went to dub the character. Seth MacFarlane appreciated Kunis due to the fact that she naturally voiced like a real teen. Meg is consistently shunned by the show’s other characters and Mila describes her character as a “scapegoat.”
By the year 2001, Kunis was set to transition from television to film roles. She began appearing in films with “Get Over It” alongside Kirsten Dunst. Later, she became part of less successful movies like American Psycho 2, Moving McAllister, and Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding.
It wasn’t until That 70s Show was concluded that her actual potential as a film actress was shown. The year 2006 saw her breakthrough with a celebrated role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and it was also a hit at the box office, earning more than $105 million across the globe.
In 2008, her next film was alongside Max Payne which was also successful at the box office, however, was steamrolled by critics. The next year, she returned with a well-received role in the film Extract. She started to truly breakthrough as a Hollywood actress in 2010 and the year was quite busy for her as she appeared in the successful films: “The Book of Eli” and “Date Night”.
The film “Black Swan” brought her most buzz-worthy role and Kunis starred opposite Natalie Portman in her most demanding role, both physically as well as mentally. Her acting skills were pushed to the limit, and she had severe physical training in order to prepare for her role as a professional ballet dancer.
And apparently, her hard work paid off when the film won many awards while receiving nominations for 5 Academy Awards. Apart from that, Mila Kunis personally won several awards for her outstanding performance. The film was a hit at the box office, grossing over $329 million across the world, helping Mila Kunis earn a part of her net worth.
In 2011, she appeared in “Friends With Benefits” which was also successful. She appeared opposite Justin Timberlake, and the film grossed around $150 million around the globe. But her next film, “Ted” shrunken the success of all these films.
Director Seth MacFarlane cast Kunis as the girlfriend of Mark Wahlberg’s character, and the film’s box office collection was a jaw-dropping $549 million. She landed the cast of 2013 Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful where she portrayed Theodora.
The film was also successful, grossing more than $493 million. The same year, she also landed the cast of the film “Blood Ties”, which premiered at Cannes. The year ended with the film “Third Person”, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. Mila Kunis has earned a considerable amount of her net worth from these successful projects.
Mila Kunis co-founded a production company named Orchard Farm Productions in 2014 which also contributed to her net worth. The following year, she participated in the science-fiction film “Jupiter Ascending”. In 2016, she landed the film “Bad Moms”, which became a box office hit but couldn’t get a positive response from critics.
The film’s sequel, A Bad Moms Christmas also experienced the same thing. In 2018, Mila landed a central role in the film “The Spy Who Dumped Me”, which was successful at the box office but received a mixed reception. She then landed the cast of the movie “Four Good Days”, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
