Mila: Black Swan appeals to women

Mila Kunis says Black Swan deserves the Oscar buzz it has received so far, partly because women will be able to relate to it.

The psychological thriller depicts the rivalry between ballerinas played by Mila and Natalie Portman.

Mila said: "It hopefully resonates with men and women across the board but I think a lot of it has to do with achieving perfection which is inevitably impossible. There's no such thing.

"And so I think a lot of women want that, whether it's physical or mental, however they want it."

She said of her character Lily: "I think most of the film she's an interpretation of what Natalie's character sees her as. Which isn't always as nice as other people. It helps drive Natalie's character to achieve ultimately what she desires."

The Forgetting Sarah Marshall actress said her real-life friendship with Natalie and her admiration for director Darren Aronofsky made the film easy to make.

"It was great. It's always rare when you get to work with a friend of yours, so it was fun," she said. "I'm a huge fan (of Darren's), ever since I saw Pi. So it's been many, many years. To work with him is a huge honour."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

You must be decisive. Don't leave your Fate in the hands of others. If you need more money, ask for a raise. Are you dissatisfied with a relationship? Issue an ultimatum. Are you perturbed by an ethical matter? Speak on behalf of justice. People will be uncomfortable with your dramatic behaviour, but they will respond to it. Waiting for a miracle to arrive simply isn't wise. When you want to make a change, you have to take action, even at the risk of being unpopular.More
