"Black Swan" actress Mila Kunis snatched the "Sexiest Woman Alive" title from singer Rihanna as Esquire magazine calls her the new deserving queen of sultriness. Mila demurely poses topless with her sexy back splashed only on the cover of Esquire now on sale.
Mila graced both the magazine and the video edition with viewers given the treat of a "voyeur" as if the camera is secretly shooting her at the various states of undress from afar paparazzi-style.
Ironic in all its aspects but Mila laments in her Esquire interview that she is still not used to being followed around by the paparazzi.
"I really don't want it. Privacy is privacy. I no longer have it," Kunis tells Esquire.
Heraldsun.com reports in a related article that the 29-year-old actress reveals to the magazine that there was once a powerful figure who threatened to jeopardize her acting career.
"It was the first time I had someone on the phone tell me that I will never work in this industry again," Kunis shares.
The actress, who used to be part of that period sitcom"That 70s Show" happens to doubt herself when it comes to comedy roles.
"I think I stumbled upon doing funny things," Kunis says. "It's a learned skill. Through 20 years of doing this, I practice it. I think that the second you think that you're funny is when you stop being funny."
A lot of people may agree that Mila Kunis is indeed the "Sexiest Woman Alive" for 2012. Eonline.com reported that the actress is now more focused on her desire to stay true to herself.
"What I do and who I am are two different things. And they always will be. What happens with people is they lose sight of who they are and they become either who they want to be or who they are perceived to be," Kunis says in Eonline.com.
"I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am and so much of who I am is what my parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that. Ever. Because I would be so disappointed if I didn't make them proud," Kunis adds.
