All who auditioned were required to be at least 18 years old; Kunis, who was 14 at the time, told the casting directors she would be 18 but did not say when.
She stated in 2011 that her parents had "amazing jobs", and that she "was very lucky" and the family was "not poor"; they had decided to leave the USSR because they saw "no future" there for Mila and her brother. Though they eventually figured it out, the producers still thought Kunis was the best fit for the role.
In 2012, Kunis co-starred with Mark Wahlberg in Ted, her most commercially successful film to date.
The film was directed and co-written by Family Guy creator Seth Mac Farlane.
Kunis' performance was praised by some critics; Deborah Young of The Hollywood Reporter wrote that her role gives her "enormous room to express her talent" and she "gives her story a shot of raw intensity".She later recalled: "I blocked out second grade completely. Once she claimed that she had it under control, Mac Farlane hired her.Mac Farlane added: "What Mila Kunis brought to it was in a lot of ways, I thought, almost more right for the character.Director Darren Aronofsky cast Kunis in the film based on her performance in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and on the recommendation of co-star and close friend Natalie Portman.
She underwent a training regimen that included cardiovascular exercise, a 1,200-calorie a day diet (she lost 20 pounds that she regained after filming ended), and ballet classes for four hours a day, seven days a week.
Kunis played the girlfriend of Wahlberg's character.
