Mila Kunis on Hollywood: 'I think it feeds you a lot of bullsh-t'

Mila Kunis admits that she refrains from Googling her own name to prevent going 'crazy.'
The 'Ted' actress says she doesn't take herself too seriously, else she'd 'go crazy'. Mila Kunis is used to calling it like she sees it.

The brunette beauty, who currently stars opposite Mark Wahlberg in "Ted," has been in the industry for a good number of her 28 years, and her best piece trick for surviving in Hollywood is simple: Laugh.

"I think that certain things are funny and certain things are okay to make fun of - including myself," she told James Franco in the August issue of Interview magazine. "I think that you have to laugh at the absurdity of this entire industry and the absurdity of what it is we do.

"If I didn't, I'd go crazy."

Kunis, who grew up with the cast of "That '70s Show" before launching into a movie career with starring roles like "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Friends With Benefits," doesn't mince words when it comes to describing the industry that launched her into the limelight either.

"I think it feeds you a lot of bullsh-t and then spits you right back out, and then you get caught up in it because so much of it is perception and opinion," she said.

"And when your only source of happiness comes from that opinion, you go mad. So I think that you have to restrain yourself from Googling your name and have other hobbies and desires and wants."

The 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' actress insists she's the same person in front of cameras and in real life. 

Kunis further emphasizes the need to stay grounded in an industry so rife with ego and delusion.

For one, the actress insists that she's the same person "on Jay Leno" as she is in everyday life, mostly because she knows that her every move is being analyzed in the press.

"I think that an actress is more likely to protect her public persona, so to speak, than an actor would be," she said. "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."
