Audiences and critics raved about her performance.
More critical acclaim came her way for the 2010 thriller Black Swan, in which she co-starred with Natalie Portman. Her performance earned Kunis, who dropped 20 pounds and trained for seven weeks as a ballerina, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award nominations for best supporting actress. That same year,
she teamed up with Denzel Washington in the post-apocalyptic Book of Eli.
In 2011, Kunis was back giving audiences a laugh with the comedy Friends with Benefits, which paired the actress with Justin Timberlake. In 2012, she co-starred with Mark Wahlberg in another comedy film, Ted, directed by Seth MacFarlane, whom she's worked with for years on the set of Family Guy (MacFarlane created the show).
Despite all of her success, Kunis, who didn't know a word of English when she first arrived in the United States, says she hasn't forgotten her roots. She lives in Los Angeles, not far from her parents, and when she visits, often speaks Russian with them.
"We came to this country with literally nothing, and so any level of success is important to us," Kunis has said. "[My parents] never wanted me to become an actress because it's such an unstable and unpredictable profession. When you're immigrants, and you have to work hard for everything just to survive, it's only natural that you worry about having a stable job and income. But I think now they're more or less convinced that I'm doing pretty well and they don't have to worry about my career prospects any more."

In the past, witches—or those alleged to be witches—were burned at the stake. They are a Halloween staple, portrayed as cackling, cauldron-stirring evil-doers. Far from such eerie depictions are the portrayals of witches in film and on television. Played by glamorous actresses, these witches have no warts on their faces, but rather ordinary lives and good intentions—with some supernatural powers to contend with. Here are some of the witches who have brought witchcraft into today's pop culture, on the big and small screens.
