Mila Kunis Condemns Sexist Hollywood Producer In Open Letter

"If this is happening to me, it is happening more aggressively to women everywhere."

Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis has penned a very personal open letter condemning sexism in Hollywood. She released it on A Plus.com, a website created by Kunis and her husband Ashton Kutcher.

She is one of the hottest actresses in the world. And Mila Kunis became a star when she was only 15 years old when she first appeared on the hit comedy “That 70s Show.” But fame and beauty come with a price: sexism and sexual abuse.

Kunis opens her letter by recounting how one producer threatened her after she refused to pose half nude on the cover of a magazine in order to promote a new movie. The threat came with the cliche, “you’ll never work in this town again.” But Kunis held tough and when the movie was a hot the producer could not make good on his threats.

The “Bad Moms” star also opened up about the pervasiveness of sexism in Hollywood, which is probably the world’s worst kept secret. Kunis said that women in the world of entertainment have been conditioned to believe that they have no choice but to just take it and to make the best of a bad situation. So women compromise their integrity living in fear of being called a “bitch” just for refusing to put up with sexual harassment.

How many times have we heard about certain actresses being “hard to work with.” Do people ever question what this really means?

Mila Kunis put it this way:

“Throughout my career, there have been moments when I have been insulted, sidelined, paid less, creatively ignored, and otherwise diminished based on my gender. And always, I tried to give people the benefit of the doubt; maybe they knew more, maybe they had more experience, maybe there was something I was missing. I taught myself that to succeed as a woman in this industry I had to play by the rules of the boy’s club. But the older I got and the longer I worked in this industry, the more I realized that it’s bullshit! And, worse, that I was complicit in allowing it to happen.”

Kunis, who is currently pregnant with her second child, has started her own production company with three other women in order to have a place free of sexism and sexual assault.

She said it best with this line which she posted in bold face:

I’m done compromising; even more so, I’m done with being compromised.

So now young women everywhere looking to their future career paths, as well as all professional women in every field have a new hero to look up to for inspiration and her name is Mila Kunis.
