Mila Kunis has penned an emotional essay to talk about the fact she has constantly been objectified throughout her career.
The Forgetting Sarah Marshall actress was told by a producer that she would never work in this town again after refusing to pose semi-nude on the cover for men’s magazine.
She was left feeling “livid” and “objectified”.
Mila, 33, also spoke out about a time where she was referred to as just the “baby momma” of her successful husband Ashton Kutcher.
The email said: “And Mila is a mega star. One of the biggest actors in Hollywood and soon to be Ashton’s wife and baby momma!!!”
Using her husband’s website APlus.com as a platform to raise awareness about the gender wage gap and constant sexism in the workplace, the Bad Moms star wrote an impressive essay.
“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 bulls***! And, worse, that I was complicit in allowing it to happen.”
She angrily wrote that she is done compromising and being compromised herself.
“Standing up against discrimination she added: “So from this point forward, when I am confronted with one of these comments, subtle or overt, I will address them head on; I will stop in the moment and do my best to educate.
“I cannot guarantee that my objections will be taken to heart, but at least now I am part of creating an environment where there is the opportunity for growth. And if my comments fall on deaf ears, I will choose to walk away.”
We couldn’t have said it better Mila…
