Black Swan star Mila Kunis says she bonded with Natalie Potman over their love of flea-markets.
The 27-year-old Ukraine born actress, who was previoulsy known for her role in ‘That 70s Show’ and as the voice of Meg in ‘Family Guy’, recently split from her boyfriend of eight years Macaulay Culkin.
Speaking to the Daily Mail about her relationship with Natalie Portman, Kunis said: “I’ve known her for about seven years, through mutual friends, but we bonded over a love of flea-market shopping.
In fact, that’s how I first heard about Black Swan. We were in the market on a Sunday morning and I said, ‘What do you have to do after this?’ I remember her telling me, ‘I have to go to my ballet lesson.’ I was like, ‘OK!’ I didn’t make the connection at that point. Then Darren (Aronofsky) contacted me after seeing me in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”
The pint-sized actress also reveals that she got the part in Black Swan over ichat.
She said: “I opened my computer and there was Darren messaging me: ‘Are you ready to do this?’ I messaged him back: ‘Did you just offer me the movie?’
And even though he replied, I made him get on video chat to offer it to me semi-in-person, just so I could see his face as he told me the good news. I had to call my agents and tell them I’d got the job – it was all done backwards.”
