The 'Black Swan' beauty said she refused to appear in an unnamed men's magazine to promote the 2008 movie 'Max Payne' and one of the film's bosses called her up to warn her he could ruin her career if she didn't change her mind.
"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," she said.
Kunis, 29, was shocked by what happened and couldn't believe how she was treated. "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 twenty-nine 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!"
