On helping her friends find love through online dating…
GLAMOUR: The internet has really changed the way people date. I just went to an OkCupid wedding.
Mila Kunis: One of my really good friends met her fiancé on an OkCupid-style website. OkCupid’s really popular—all my girlfriends have joined. I love those sites. I go on and I pick the guys for my friends. I think it’s great.
GLAMOUR: You pick guys for your girlfriends?
MK: It’s online shopping! We all get together with our laptops and have a glass of wine. Then we message the guy.
GLAMOUR: So, wait, there are guys out there who have been asked out by Mila Kunis and don’t know it?
MK: Yes. Who have had conversations with me on OkCupid, to be exact. They had no clue.
GLAMOUR: What’s your approach?
MK: I’m just very honest and blunt. My girlfriends end up canceling half the dates anyway.
GLAMOUR: Do you help edit your friends’ profiles too?
MK: Yeah. I’m really good at “About Me.” I feel like I could never write anything about myself, because that’s like a therapy session. But about your girlfriends? You just write what you love about your friends. If I didn’t do what I do, I would do Internet dating instead of going out to bars. In two seconds I would. It makes so much more sense.

On not knowing what its like to date…
GLAMOUR: Have you ever thought of just putting up a profile that doesn’t have your photo?
MK: No. Because, ultimately, what’s going to happen? I show up to coffee.… I’m OK in my personal life. I’ve never dated. I can say this honestly: I don’t know what it’s like to date. But also, how am I going to date? I’m not in one state long enough.
On feeling pressure to have a baby…
GLAMOUR: Do you feel pressure to have a baby?
MK: This isn’t the right time for me to have one, but I do want a family. I’d rather be in love and have a baby than have a movie.
On gaining 25 pounds to return to her normal weight after Black Swan…
GLAMOUR: Your body was talked about so much during the wave of press for Black Swan, in which you played a rail-thin ballerina. How do you feel now?
MK: This is my normal body. It’s not 98 pounds. God, I’m probably 25 pounds heavier in muscle mass and weight at this point. What was crazy was, when I was shooting Black Swan, everyone was like, “Gosh, you’re really too skinny.” Then my weight started bouncing back and they’re like, “She looked better when she was anorexic-looking.” You can’t please anyone! It was just for work. I didn’t do it because I had issues. Now this is my normal weight that I started out with.
GLAMOUR: How did your body feel 25 pounds lighter?
MK: Flat, flat, flat. [She gestures to her chest and hips.] There was no shape, no form, nothing, nothing.
