Many people often wonder how celebrities manage to juggle it all and make it seem so effortless. Sure they have resources and help but they also are held to a higher standard and face unending scrutiny as they’re always in the public eye.
Mila Kunis, actress, wife, and mother, was recently brutally honest about what it takes to run a well-oiled machine that is a marriage, motherhood, and a career in Hollywood.
The dark haired beauty has been in the business since she was a kid and as her star has continued to rise, it’s become evident just how much hard work and tenacity is required to balance it all, especially since having kids.
Despite the fact that she can afford and employ nannies, she doesn’t like to and makes it a point to deal with middle of the night feedings and bedtime herself.
In a recent interview with Marie Claire, the actress, who is promoting her new film Bad Moms Christmas had this to say about motherhood: “What motherhood shows you is how selfless you can get. I’m ragged tired. Who cares? My kids are healthy, I’m happy.”
There are certain sacrifices that all parents, namely mothers, have to make in order to properly care for their children and their households, even if they do have the privilege of outside help.
One thing that her children, Dimitri and Wyatt, have revealed about her own personality is her propensity to overreact.
Kunis explains that she definitely went into the right profession because she tends to be overdramatic and overthinks things. This wasn’t improved at all when she had kids because everything is so new and often frightening.
She tends to think the worse of something when it’s probably much less serious than she originally makes it out to be. She’s clear that something that is minor or not that bad can become a catastrophe in her mind very quickly.
Kunis also speaks about how her kids aren’t getting Christmas presents this year because they’re too young to remember it and last year was a bit of an overload with the gifts their grandparents got them. Kunis and Kutcher don’t want to raise entitled and spoiled children.
