Mila Kunis said she lied about her age to get the role in “That 70s Show.” Kunis told Vanity Fair that she lied about how old she was when she auditioned for “That 70s Show.” Instead, she told the creators of the show that she was 18 when she was only 14.
“There’s a rumor going around that I may or may not have lied about my age. I’d like to make it very clear now that I did lie. I did.”
“However, by the time I went to what was then a producer’s network call… you have to sign a contract before you get the job, and in my contract, I had to put an asterisk for “studio teacher,” they were like, ‘What do you mean?’ And I was like, ‘Oh P.S., I’m 14. But at that point, if you talk to the creators, they were like, ‘We loved you at that point so what did we care?”
Even though she lied, the producers did say that by the time the show aired, they all knew she was only 14.
“It was in the heyday of older kids playing younger kids and I was actually of the age of the character. I was never treated as lesser then. If I did by one of the cast members another cast member would stand up for it. The reason I don’t do drugs was because nobody on the set did. And I looked up to them at 14. The trajectory of my career could’ve gone any which way. but the set was cool.
