EW You’ve voiced Meg Griffin on Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy for 13 years. How did you come to be in his movie about a talking teddy bear?
Kunis At first I was helping him try to cast it. He was like, ”Which girls do you think are funny?” And then the movie kept getting pushed and pushed and pushed, and before he knew it I was in my late 20s, and he was like, ”Why don’t you do it?”
EW Is there anything in Ted that’s so raunchy that you had a hard time keeping a straight face?
Kunis Yes, but I can’t give it away. All I’m going to say is it has to do with poop. I was crying, I was laughing so hard.
EW Of all your male costars over the years, who’s the biggest teddy bear — not counting Ted?
Kunis [Laughs] I’ve actually never not had a teddy bear. But you know what? Jason Segel. It was Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I was 23, and he was just the nicest, sweetest person ever.
EW What was your favorite stuffed animal when you were growing up?
Kunis It was a teddy bear. I still have it.
EW What’s its name?
Kunis I’m not going to tell you! I’ve had it since I was 9. Maybe one day I’ll share this bear with the world. Maybe.
EW You’re playing a wicked witch in next year’s Oz the Great and Powerful, and right now you’re voicing a demon in the animated film Hell & Back from the producers of Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken. When did you get so evil?
Kunis [Laughs] Well, let me just be clear: In Hell & Back, she’s not necessarily evil, okay? She’s actually a nice little demon. Wait until you see the movie. You talk about raunchy? That one’s going to be raunchy.
