She appears on the November issue of Esquire as the sexiest woman alive.

Topless: Mila Kunis appears naked in Esquire magazine as she is named the sexiest woman alive
Kunis appears with smoky eye make-up and tousled hair as a tree she stands under creates a shadow across her bare flesh.
She is clearly comfortable with her body but the brunette tries not to take being desired so seriously.
She told the men’s publication: ‘What I do and who I am are two different things. And they always will be. What happens with people is they lose sight of who they are, and they become either who they want to be or who they are perceived to be.

'But whatever it is, it is no longer who they are. So much of who you are in this industry is based on what that critic says, what that director says, what that actor says. People start believing all that, and they become what everybody else wants them to be. And I think that I’ve consciously separated my two lives.’
Mila – who is currently dating her former That ‘70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher – added that while she is lusted after on the job, she remains normal outside of the spotlight and attempts to forget about the fame.
‘I love what I do. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. But when I’m done with work, I’m done with work.

‘I think that if I bought into the hype,
I would lose all sight of who I am, and so much of who I am is what my
parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that.
Ever. Because I would be so disappointed if I didn’t make them proud.’
Other photographs show the thespian getting progressively stripped down as she goes from wearing a black bra and leather trousers while sitting on a bed, to her briefs and finally just concealing her private parts with a thin white sheet.
She might be incredibly attractive, but the star likes to prove that she has brains as well as beauty.
She told the magazine about her following of political happenings: ‘I find it all to be incredibly entertaining. I went to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner with Wolf Blitzer. It’s weird: You get invited by people you don’t know–and I never wanna go again, because I had the most incredible experience. Ever.
‘I watch CNN or MSNBC all day long, every day. So I meet with Wolf, and I was like, “Oh, my God. There’s Wolf Blitzer.” Like two drinks in, I just start talking. “So, about Ahmadinejad‘s nephew …” Wolf was surprised I followed politics.’
