(JTA) — Actress Mila Kunis was named Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive for 2012. The magazine, which shows Kunis on the cover wearing just a pair of pants, called Kunis “the most beautiful, opinionated, talkative, and funny movie star that we’ve all known since she was nine.” The issue hits newsstands on Oct. 16.
Kunis, who appeared on “That 70’s Show” as a teenager, and more recently in the films “Black Swan” with Natalie Portman and “Friends With Benefits” with Justin Timberlake, described herself as a “working actress.” She talked about her career and politics, but not her boyfriend Ashton Kutcher.
In talking about politics, she made reference to her Judaism. “The way that Republicans attack women is so offensive to me. And the way they talk about religion is offensive. I may not be a practicing Jew, but why we gotta talk about Jesus all the time?” Kunis wondered. “And it’s baffling to me how a poor person in Georgia can say, ‘I’m a Republican.’ Why?”
