Mila Kunis may be off the market -- but she's still the "Sexiest Woman Alive."
In the November issue of Esquire magazine, Kunis poses topless in black leather pants to prove she deserves the "Sexiest Woman Alive" crown. But the 29-year-old Friends With Benefits actress doesn't want to let the praise go to her head.
"What I do and who I am are two different things. And they always will be," she told magazine. "What happens with people is they lose sight of who they are, and they become either who they want to be or who they are perceived to be. But whatever it is, it is no longer who they are. So much of who you are in this industry is based on what that critic says, what that director says, what that actor says. People start believing all that, and they become what everybody else wants them to be."
"And I think that I've consciously separated my two lives. I love what I do. I couldn't imagine doing anything else. But when I'm done with work, I'm done with work," Kunis explained. "I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am, and so much of who I am is what my parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that. Ever. Because I would be so disappointed if I didn't make them proud."
The Ted star also wouldn't call herself her funny.
"I think I stumbled upon doing funny things, but I'm not funny. I just know how to deliver a joke," she said. "There are people who naturally exude humor and are constantly saying funny things, and there are the people who know how to deliver a joke. It's a learned skill. Through twenty years of doing this, I practice it. I think that the second you think that you're funny is when you stop being funny."
Kunis has been dating her former That '70s Show costar Ashton Kutcher for the past five months. "He always had a thing for her," a source told Us Weekly of Kutcher, 34. "It's a real infatuation."
