  • Mila and Barack: Friends without benefits

    Or to be more accurate — constituent and president.
    In this week’s issue of the U.K. magazine Stylist, Mila Kunis goes on about her love of politics and Barack Obama, though she is admittedly less enthusiastic about him now as she had been in 2008 when she cast her vote.
