The actress hates Photoshop and admits the snaps from one shoot were so tweaked and tampered with she didn't recognise herself.

Mila Kunis will never be the glamour girl who goes out of her way to look red carpet ready at all times.

The pregnant actress, who is married to Ashton Kutcher, admits she has a very simple approach to style and beauty and thinks nothing of appearing fresh-faced and makeup free for a magazine cover shoot.

"I don’t wear makeup," she tells Glamour magazine. "I don’t wash my hair every day. It’s not something that I associate with myself.

"I commend women who wake up 30, 40 minutes early to put on eyeliner. I think it’s beautiful. I’m just not that person."

Mila dressed down for her new Glamour shoot and appears on the cover without makeup, adding, "To go to a shoot and have my makeup artist put on face cream and send me off to do a photo, I was like, ‘Well, this makes life easy'. And you’re still protected. Nobody’s there to make you look bad."

She's also not keen on Photoshop to tweak her look and perfect blemishes, wrinkles and so-called imperfections.

Editors at one magazine changed her look so much with technology, the actress didn't even recognise herself.

"There was a company that I did a photoshoot for once that manipulated the photo so much, I was like, 'That’s not even me!'

"What’s the point? You wanted my name, and then you wanted the version of me that I’m not. I absolutely hate it. Now, do I sometimes want them to de-puff my eyes? Help me out with a little bit of lighting. But do I want them to stretch my legs, thin out my waist, curve my hips, elongate my neck, blah, blah, blah? No!"
