Mila Kunis has revealed that a producer once tried to force her to pose “semi naked” in a magazine shoot to promote a film.
The Ted star was also told that she’d “never work in this town again” after refusing to go through with the shoot.
Opening up about experiencing sexism in Hollywood in an open letter published on A Plus, Mila wrote: “A producer threatened when I refused to pose semi-naked on the cover of a men’s magazine to promote our film.”
“I was no longer willing to subject myself to a naïve compromise that I had previously been willing to. “I will never work in this town again?” I was livid, I felt objectified, and for the first time in my career I said ‘no’.”
Mila added: “And guess what? The world didn’t end. The film made a lot of money and I did work in this town again, and again, and again.
“What this producer may never realise is that he spoke aloud the exact fear every woman feels when confronted with gender bias in the workplace.”
It’s the second time in recently weeks that Mila has spoken about her experiences in Hollywood, after the Black Swan star revealed exactly what it’s like to film a sex scene in a movie.
