I Love that Mila Kunis Keeps it 100 All the Time!

I love celeb mamas who keep it real, including A Bad Moms Christmas star Mila Kunis who recently opened up to ET about a variety of topics from family, the holiday traditions, to shedding baby weight and I’m here for it all!

You can catch a video of the interview here!

But among my fave parts include when she responded to the question about how she lost her baby weight after the birth of her now 10-month old son Dimitri. (She and husband actor/investor Ashton Kutcher are also parents to 3-year old daughter Wyatt). She didn’t mince words.

 “Lots of gym-ing. I hate someone who’s like, ‘This is all natural.’ Bullsh**. It’s not natural.” Ha! Love it! That’s right!

Also, it was like re-living watching moments from scenes of her role in the original Bad Moms when she got stressed out about raising her fictional children to be good people when she said this:

“Yeah, we’re not gonna raise a**holes. There’s enough a**holes in this world! We don’t need to contribute. But, you know, there’s some nice people.”

Amen sister!

I too come from a inter-religious family that celebrates many holidays and my husband grew up in a country, Trinidad, that celebrates Hindu, Christian, Muslim and several other religious as public holidays, so I could dig her answer on how her family celebrates the holidays:

 “I come from communist Russia, where you’re not allowed to be happy, so my holiday traditions are ‘be quiet.’ Coming to America is when you realize Christmas has a magical quality to it. In Russia, back in the day, it was a very religious holiday, so you don’t celebrate Christmas if you’re not Christian and if you’re not at Mass. So, I being Jewish, was like, ‘Christmas is not for you.’ We come to America and we’re like, ‘Christmas is so inclusive.’ We literally bought a Christmas tree. So as far as tradition goes, my family’s big on any excuse to get the family together and get drunk. Whether it’s Easter, which we’ve now all accepted into our Jewish household, or Christmas, it doesn’t matter. It’s all family time, but having kids, we’re building up our own little versions of tradition.”

Very cool.

Kunis is a woman and a mom right after my own heart! <3 Can’t wait to see her again in A Bad Mom’s Christmas! Loved the first movie so much!

 

 

 

 

REVIEW: Bands of Moms Organized “Bad Moms” Movie Nights this Weekend

This weekend, groups of mom friends across the nation gathered en masse to see the new Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell movie Bad Moms which also stars two other of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, Jada Pinkett Smith and Christina Applegate.

(Moms’ Night Outings included this one and here and even here where someone rented out the entire theater)

The film is about Amy (Kunis), a suburban mom who is married to her college sweetheart, and has two great kids including entitled son Dylan (Emjay Anthony) and an overachieving soccer star daughter, Jane (Oona Laurence) who dreams of getting into an Ivy League school even while still in Middle School.  Amy  is also married to an immature real estate mortgager who is a parenting slacker and leaves Amy to do all the work at home even though she also works part time at a trendy coffee company owned and managed by millennials. At age 32, she is the oldest worker. Oy vey!

As the film begins, Amy relays how she is overwhelmed, underappreciated and constantly late. (We can all relate, well I know I can) Amy has to also battle against meeting up to the high expectations and standards of a trio of perfect moms, led by the PTA President Gwendolyn(Applegate), the Queen B who runs the school, and her sidekick moms Stacy (Pinkett-Smith) and Vicky (Annie Mumolo).

Eventually, she just gives up on trying and befriends frazzled mousey stay-at-home mom KiKi (Bell) and single mom Carla (Kathryn Hahn), the break out star in the film and they cut up.

For a  few days, they sleep in, stop making the kids’ breakfast, skip work, go out to pubs and dance clubs and act out in a supermarket in the most hilarious scene of the film.

That scene is second only to (SPOILER ALERT) the one in a bathroom when Carla and KiKi preps Amy to start dating again after she and her husband take a break from her marriage and Carla uses Kiki to show Amy how to manage an uncircumcised man’s member. It is utter hilarity!

I too attended a Bad Moms outing my law school girlfriend Marcie organized. It included happy hour drinks before (which I missed but borrowed a photo from) and night of dancing at a local concert hall to an 80s cover band after. I’d dare say 98% of our theater was filled with women. There were probably several groups of mom groups out. There was lots of talking, popcorn throwing and cutting up in the theater before and the antics were aplenty.

We all agreed afterwards that we have to go see the movie again because we missed so many lines because we were laughing so hard throughout the film.

And what can you expect when the writer/director of The Hangover, Jon Lucas, was behind the film? There is plenty of raunchy and hypersexualized over-the-top slapstick humor that works and a very generous use of the F-bomb. It is rated R for a reason and you should definitely not think of taking your kids with you to see this.

Again, as I stated above, Hahn is the most memorable. Every line that comes out of her mouth elicited belly laughs. It’s because she doesn’t give a kitty about what others think, is sexually free and liberated and is that ride-or-die pal that has your back. She’s that friend from college who would hold back your pony tail while you hurl in the throne after a wild night out, but who has grown up and is now solo-parenting a 6 feet tall middle school jock kid.

Hahn steals ever scene she is in.

My girl Bell does a phenomenal job as a docile mom with a controlling husband who eventually grows some cohones and stands up to him by the end of the movie. She delivers some zingers that are effective because they are unexpected but delivered with perfect comedic timing.

The movie climaxes as Amy decides to compete with Gwendolyn for PTA President after Gwendolyn does something that negatively impacts Jane.

The movie is The Hangover meets Mean Girls.  It has the usual comedy movie tropes but it is successful.

I recommend you get your mom pals together and organize your own Bad Moms movie outing. The last time I attended a movie that got so many groups of women out was when Sex and The City movie came out. I wasn’t a fan of Fifty Shades so I missed all the Fifty Shades movie night outings.

But Bad Moms is definitely a must-see! Fun times!

How ‘Bad Moms’Mila Kunis Showed Again How Low-Key She & hubby Ashton Kutcher Are

 



Bad Moms star and current 2nd-time mom-to-be Mila Kunis revealed recently that she and her husband Ashton Kutcher got their wedding rings for about $90 each on Etsy, the popular website that sells hand made goods by local merchants.

While appearing on TBSConan Wednesday night promoting her new movie, Conan O’Brien praised her very unassuming wedding ring.

“It’s not showy,” the host told Kunis. “It’s not, like, incredibly flashy, which I think is cool.”

That’s when Kunis revealed more insight into the ring.

“I can’t believe that I’m telling anybody this story. So, my husband and I got married a little while ago. He got me a beautiful engagement ring. Like, stunning, stunning, stunning!” the That 70s Show alum added. “But for our wedding bands—for when we got married—I decided to just get them off of Etsy.”

She also shared a bit about the details of the purchase.

When browsing Etsy, Mila explained, “I wanted the thinnest possible platinum band. I mean, you can’t see it, but it’s super, super thin.”

She talked about being shocked at the price of Tiffany and Co. wedding bands.

“I was like, ‘They’re howmuch? This is astronomical,” the actress said. “So, I went on Etsy and I was like, ‘$90?’ I was like, ‘Buy now!’ Ashton’s was $100, so technically his wedding band was a little bit more expensive.”

She already had the big engagement ring so a cheaper band was “not a big deal,” Mila added.

“My engagement ring is beautiful, but I don’t ever wear it. This ring, I’m like, ‘It’s $90!’ It’s great. That person on Etsy had no clue whose ring they were making, but they were wonderful and very nice and polite and generous.”

Kunis and Kutcher are parents to 2-year old daughter Wyatt. They are currently expecting their second child.

Editor’s note: I saw Bad Moms yesterday with a bunch of moms and it was a great time. We all laughed our way thru it.

It was like The Hangover meets Mean Girls.  And Kunis was wonderful in it. Convincing and relatable. Highly recommend!
