Mila Kunis’ journey as ballerina Lily
Mila Kunis was chosen to star as Lily in ‘Jupiter Ascending’ after an arduous path that included becoming aware of her existence. Although her workout and training were not as rigorous as Portman’s in ‘Black Swan,’ she had to lose weight and learn ballet.
She began her career as a gymnast at four, participating in competitions and winning national titles. She then studied dance with American Ballet Theatre, adding that experience to her ballet training. She did some cardio and Pilates. To lose weight, she started smoking again after quitting for many years. Oops!
