Mila Kunis says that after working out seven days a week for up to five hours at time to lose 20 pounds for her role as a troubled ballerina in the new thriller "Black Swan", there was only one thing on her mind after she stopping filming: Chinese food.
"Panda Express," Kunis said, referring to the popular fast food restaurant chain. "Yep, at Virgin America airlines. It was fantastic. I remember that moment so well. I was flying home from New York and I was in that car, thinking, 'Oh my God, I can have Panda Express. It clicked to me. I was so eager to go and order that Panda Express and I ate there and scarfed it at the airport."
Kunis, a 27-year-old actress who was born in what is now Ukraine and who also grew up in the United States, is known for her roles on "That 70's Show," "Family Guy" and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." The 5' 3" star dropped down to 95 pounds for her role. She told Cari Skillman on KABC-TV, OnTheRedCarpet.com's parent company, that it took five months to lose the weight but five days to gain it back.
After her grueling training and strict dieting, it was natural that when Kunis arrived back in southern California, she was still hungry.
"I got home, got in the car, drove to In-N-Out and had an In-N-Out Burger," she said. "Animal Style, double-double. Delicious."
The popular burger chain's delicacy includes two patties fried with mustard and two pieces of cheese and topped off with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, grilled onions and extra spread.
In "Black Swan", a new Darren Aronofsky film, Natalie Portman plays a ballet dancer picked to play the lead in "Swan Lake". She deals with a manipulative dance master and a rival ballerina who is not what she appears to be. The film features a steamy kiss between her and Kunis, who plays her adversary, and is set for release on December 3.
