Mila Kunis Lied About Her Age To Get On The Show
All the actresses who auditioned for the role of Jackie Burkhart were supposed to be at least 18 years old. Mila Kunis was only 14 when she auditioned, but she lied in order to land the part. She explained her fib during a 2012 appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, noting:
“Legally I was 14, but I told them I was a little bit older… I told them I was gonna be 18, which is not technically a lie, cause at one point… I was gonna be 18.”
It wasn’t long before That ’70s Show producers figured out Kunis’s real age. However, the actress was such a great fit for the part that they bent the rules. Kunis played Burkhart for eight seasons.
