Mila Kunis, 31, wants her daughter to be a doctor or lawyer. The Jupiter Ascending star insists it is too early to worry about four-month-old Wyatt – her baby with fiancé Ashton Kutcher – wanting to launch an acting career of her own, but admits she would prefer her to set her sights on a different profession.
Asked if she wants Wyatt to be an actress, Mila told HELLO! magazine: ”I’m not really worrying about that now … However, if my kid could be a doctor or a lawyer that would be great because this industry is based on rejection. That’d the first thing you learn, the word ‘no.’ My parents never wanted me to act. I was only allowed to keep doing it if I got straight As in school.”
Mila had ambitions to be a medical professional herself, but her doctor dreams were dashed by her aversion to blood. So she eventually settled on acting as a profession because it got her ”out of school.”
She said: ”Yes (I wanted to be a doctor) – until I realized I didn’t like blood! I also thought of becoming a teacher but I found I enjoyed acting so much that I knew I had to stick with it. I always loved the idea of pretending so acting was a natural evolution. It got me out of school, which is the best thing every kid can hope for.”
