The November issue of "Esquire", which names Mila Kunis as the sexist woman alive, begins with her recount of the odious pressure she received while promoting 2008 action film "Max Payne."  When she refused to pose for the cover of a certain magazine, she explained that standing up to a few jerks was one of her most important career moves:

"Why support a project that didn't support me back? People in this industry lie so much, they believe their lies. That's what I learned on that movie. I learned people are assholes and people lie. I think that was the turning point of my career. Where I said no!"

The profile in "Esquire" continues to showcase a lot of wit and candor from the "Ted" and "Black Swan" star. She  opens up on losing her privacy, politics as entertainment, and a particular highlight -- joshing about Seth MacFarlane, who directed her in "Ted" and "Family Guy."  Kunis certainly has that good-natured frat boy humor down pat: "He's such a douchebag. I keep telling him, 'Sarcasm does not translate well in print.' And he is so fucking dry. I've known him since I was fourteen, and I find self-deprecating humor great."
