Mila Kunis lied about her age to bag ‘That ’70s Show’
‘Black Swan’ star Mila Kunis has confirmed a longstanding rumour about how she landed her breakout role as Jackie Burkhart on ‘That ’70s Show’.
The actress revealed to Vanity Fair that in order to bag the role, she lied about her age. Kunis was 14 years old at the time, but the rumour claims she told the show’s creators she was 18 years old in order to audition, as the network was only looking for older teen actors, reports Variety.
“There’s a rumour going around that I may or may not have lied about my age,” Kunis said. “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,'” she added, quoted by Variety.
“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?'”
As per Variety, though Kunis lied about her age to get her foot in the door to audition, co-creators Bonnie and Terry Turner were well aware she was a 14-year-old by the time the show started filming.
“It was in the heyday of older kids playing younger kids and I was actually of the age of the character,” Kunis added. “I was never treated as lesser then. If I was, 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.”
Variety further states that Kunis will be reprising the role of Jackie on Netflix’s upcoming sequel series ‘That ’90s Show’, but the streamer is yet to announce a release date.
The actor promised fans last month that ‘That ’90s Show’ is “very cute,” adding that “Anyone who has ever watched or loved ‘That ’70s Show’ will be really happy with it.”

Ayushmann Khurrana’s Wife Tahira Kashyap Redes Out Hard-Hitting Poem Supporting Wrestlers’ Protest
Tahira Kashyap, the wife of actor Ayushmann Khurrana, read out a powerful and hardhitting poem on Thursday morning, in support of the ongoing wrestlers’ protest in Delhi. She is among the first ones from the film industry to break her silence on the raging debate that has gripped the nation.
Celebrities from Bollywood, who are otherwise quite vocal on issues of national interest, have remained tightlipped about the ongoing wrestlers’ protest in the country.
Several Olympic and other world championship-winning wrestlers, including Sakshi Malik, Vinesh Phogat and Bajrang Punia, have taken to the streets of Delhi demanding the arrest of former Wrestling Federation of India chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, who has been accused of sexual harassment by nearly 10 women.
Tahira Kashyap voices her support for protesting wrestlers
On Thursday morning, Tahira penned down a poem on the wrestlers’ protest and read it out in a video which she shared on her social media handle.
“Handing over the papers and then snatching back in shame, the headlines of our women wrestlers struggling to be heard just changed the game,” a part of her poem stated.
In the poem, she also said how she never differentiated between her daughter and son, and that they look up to the wrestlers, whom she addressed as “national heroes”.
Speaking of her daughter, she said, “She too has an aspiration to win medals for the nation. I snatched and clenched the papers hard for I never want her to know what awaits is a warped situation.”
“The women whom my son also looks up to, have been mistreated and told ‘shut up you’,” she added.
Celebs slammed for staying mum
Meanwhile, celebs are being slammed on the internet for not voicing out their opinion over the wrestlers’ protest. Netizens pointed out that while the celebs put out posts when the same wrestlers had won medals for the country, they have now decided to remain tightlipped when they actually need support.
A few celebs, however, condemned the Delhi Police’s brutal action on the wrestlers on the day of the new Parliament building’s innauguration.
Swara Bhasker shared a video and wrote, “Shameful that our top International athletes are forced to protest on streets against sexual harassment but accused BJP MP is being consistently shielded by the govt. Sack & investigate #BrijBhushanSharanSingh.”
Tovino Thomas, Kamal Haasan, Prakash Raj and Sonu Sood too condemned the police action.
Simplicity or Publicity? Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan gets mixed reactions over her auto ride in Mumbai
Ira Khan, the daughter of Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and his first wife Reena Dutta, has captured media attention and made headlines, this time by being spotted travelling in an auto-rickshaw.
The star kid has always chosen to carve her own path instead of following in her father’s footsteps as an actor. With a strong presence on social media, particularly Instagram, she keeps her followers engaged by sharing glimpses of her life through photos and videos.
Despite staying away from the acting world, Ira manages to stay in the limelight due to her personal life.
Ira Khan travels in an auto-rickshaw
Recently, Ira Khan decided to forgo a luxurious car and opt for a fun auto-rickshaw ride in the bustling city of Mumbai.
Accompanied by a friend, she was captured on camera by a paparazzo, who later shared the video on Instagram.
Throughout the clip, Ira can be seen wearing a charming smile as she waves to the onlookers and expresses her gratitude with a heartfelt “Thank You.” Her casual attire consisted of a white and pink striped shirt layered over a grey top, paired effortlessly with olive shorts. She completed the look with a stylish pair of sunglasses.
Netizens have mixed reaction
The video quickly caught the attention of netizens, resulting in a flurry of reactions across social media platforms. Many fans praised Ira for her down-to-earth nature, describing her as the “one and only simple star kid” and showering her with clapping emojis.
Others echoed the sentiment, referring to her as a genuinely sweet and unpretentious person. However, not everyone shared the same viewpoint. Some sceptics dismissed her auto-rickshaw ride as a mere publicity stunt, calling her the “talentless kid” of Bollywood and their alleged thirst for attention. A particularly disillusioned user claimed that such tactics were deployed when no one paid attention, suggesting a decline in the industry.
About Ira Khan
Earlier this month, Ira Khan celebrated her 25th birthday in a unique and personalized manner. She hosted a delightful Ted Lasso-themed party at her home, which was attended by her father Aamir Khan’s ex-wife Kiran Rao, her brother Azad, and her fiancé Nupur Shikhare.
The event also saw the presence of Aamir’s cousin Imran Khan and actress Mithila Palkar. Notably, Ira got engaged to Nupur Shikhare, a professional gym trainer, last year, further adding to the excitement surrounding her personal life.
