MILA KUNIS was once told she would never work in Hollywood again after she refused to pose for the cover of a magazine.
The actress was asked to take part in a photoshoot while promoting her 2008 movie Max Payne but she declined, and was later told by a film boss that her decision would spell the end of her career.
She tells Esquire, "My career was threatened over me not wanting to do the cover of a magazine by an executive. Oh, that's not even true. A person higher than an executive. It was like, 'If you don't do this magazine, you'll never work in this company.' I went, 'Great.' It was the first time that I had someone on the phone tell me that I will never work in this industry again.
"I said, 'I'm sorry, what did you say?' It wasn't Playboy, but it was a magazine I didn't want to do. It's very simple. I just didn't want to do it. I said I would do that one and that one, just not this one. And this person couldn't accept no. In my 29 years, I've never met someone who lied as much as this person did.
"People in this industry lie so much, they believe their lies. That's what I learned on that movie. I learned people lie. I think that was the turning point of my career. Where I said no!"
