Mila Kunis Opens Up About Her Parents’ Role in Her Success Following Immigration

Posted on

Mila Kunis, one of Hollywood’s most prominent stars today, has a remarkable journey marked by resilience and the unwavering support of her parents, Mark and Elvira Kunis.

In a recent interview with People magazine, the actress reflected on her immigrant background and the pivotal role her parents played in her life achievements.

Mila’s parents embarked on their journey to the United States when she was just seven years old. They arrived in the U.S. with little more than a dream, having originally immigrated from Ukraine following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.

“It was right at the fall [of the Soviet Union],…It was very communist, and my parents wanted my brother and me to have a future, and so they just dropped everything. They came with $250,” Mila recounted.

Adjusting to a new environment was challenging, especially for a young Mila. She recalled how she had blacked out her second grade due to the difficulties she faced:

“I have no recollection of it. I always talk to my mom and my grandma about it. It was because I cried every day. I didn’t understand the culture. I didn’t understand the people. I didn’t understand the language.”

However, Mila’s life took a positive turn when her parents enrolled her in acting class at the age of 9. This decision marked the beginning of her journey into the world of acting, eventually leading her to become the renowned actress we know today.
