Long before Esquire named Mila Kunis the sexiest woman alive, she was just a cute little kid doing cute little kid things — like starring in television commercials! Last week the interwebs was treated to a 13-year-old Mila selling those addictive bright and colorful Lisa Frank stickers every girl had to have back in the day, and now we have an even younger Mila Kunis offering up her childish charm for Glitter Hair Barbie in a commercial from 1994!
10-year-old Mila’s only dialogue is an emphatically delivered “WOW!” but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t act up a storm selling that doll! Just look at those facial expressions!
In the previous year Mila Kunis did get to show off her dialog chops in the afore-mentioned Lisa Frank commercial that surfaced online last week thanks to a clip posted by Urban Outfitters. Adorable lil Mila Kunis comes in right around the 2:55 mark — just after the surreal rainbow bear scene:
“I’ll never forget the day I got stuck on Lisa Frank,” Mila joyfully declares in the 1993 ad. “The stickers were so cool! The colors were awesome. So I go to the store. And wow! There’s tons of awesome Lisa Frank stuff. I gotta have it, what more can I say?”
And here are a couple more photos of 10-year-old Mila Kunis from the 1993 Lisa Frank stickers commercial — click to enlarge:
If you didn’t know, Mila has mentioned numerous times that she had a difficult childhood because of her “funny-looking face.”
“I had like big eyes, big lips, big ears,” Mila says. “But when I was little I was constantly being made fun of for having big eyes and that was awful.’
She told Britain’s OK magazine: “I used to come home crying, ‘Why do I have big eyes?’ And my parents were like, ‘You’re crazy!'”
“I’ve learned it wasn’t a bad thing to be picked on because when you’re little it seems awful, like it’s the end of the world. I grew into my face.”
To be honest, unless Mila is talking about when she was younger than ten, I don’t get it. OBVIOUSLY she was a cute girl or she wouldn’t have been featured in Barbie and Lisa Frank commercials!
Still not enough Lil Mila for you? Here she is in a flashback scene from the 1994 Days of Our Lives episode featuring the funeral of Dr. Tom Horton in which Mila Kunis plays young Hope Williams Brady opposite a young Bo Brady! Mila comes in right around the 33-second mark — I think I have it all cued up for you, though, so all you should have to do is hit “play.”
And of course I’ve got a digitally enhanced screen grab for ya!
Who in the world could make fun of that face?!? Haters gonna hate (and bullies gonna bully) I suppose.
