Who can explain New Yorkers? Despite hailing from war-torn Ukraine and her status as a critically acclaimed actress, Mila Kunis was repeatedly booed recently on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
Named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2022, Kunis could not even persuade her audience that her tastes in pizza, for instance, were to be admired.
Kunis appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to promote her new thriller movie, “Luckiest Girl Alive,” which was released on September 30 on Netflix.
The booing started when Kimmel, who normally hosts his show from Los Angeles but was taping in Brooklyn, New York, mentioned that Kunis seemed “like you could be a New Yorker, but you’re not a New Yorker, right?” As soon as she began to respond someone booed from the audience. “What, who booed,” she asked, seeming a bit startled.
“What’s wrong with your audience? Very New York of you, very New York,” Kunis joked with her host, continuing on to describe her experience in coming to the U.S. and her efforts in securing citizenship in New York City. During that time she said she stayed in a Brooklyn hotel, trying a hamburger and a Coke for the first time.
Kunis’ interview had gotten off to a hilarious start as she described how the outfit that she had been provided to appear on the show did not include a bra, socks, or underwear, so she had to improvise just before appearing, wearing a pair of cut-off children’s leggings provided by the show’s costume department, for instance. “Why I wasn’t wearing those garments either is a whole other story, which we can get into at a later time,” she added, to chuckles from her host and audience.
Cheers and applause erupted when Kunis mentioned that she was born in Ukraine, noting that at least people now know where the country is located on the map.
Some boos erupted, though, when Kunis admitted in response to a query from Kimmel that she ate Los Angeles pizza after she first baited the audience with, “are you ready,” and a hold-on-for-this, open-palm gesture.
“That’s mean. LA has perfectly fine pizza, guys,” she defended in response to the extended catcalls and boos elicited by the source of her pizza.
“Hold on. You know what? I am wearing children’s underwear for you,” she retorted with a pointed finger and a huge grin. That was much more to the crowd’s liking, showing that perhaps Kunis had some influence over them after all.
“Just hold on, before there’s judgment on types of pizzas,” Kunis said before going on to explain that her dad was a pizza deliveryman in Los Angeles. “It was Domino’s pizza,” she noted, with the result as she obviously expected from the crowd.
Kunis admitted that she hates pizza, to the raucous dismay of everyone in the room but her, later noting the irony of the fact that her husband, actor Ashton Kutcher, gave her a pizza oven for an anniversary and now she has to make a lot of pizza.
Kunis won her Time magazine award in part because she has raised tens of millions of dollars in support of the devastated country of Ukraine and its hurting but resilient people.
