Popular Hollywood actress Mila Kunis, originally from the Ukrainian city of Chernivtsi, spoke about how she decided to raise money to help her native country in connection with the Russian war. She shared the details in an interview with People.
"Helping – not even asking, just doing – should be our standard norm. I often saw people who talked a lot but did little. It was one of the first times I spoke about charity, because in this case there was no other way to achieve a result. When we saw that Putin was pursuing the whole country, we knew that a large-scale crisis was about to come,” the actress said.
Kunis also admitted whether she tells her children about the war at home.
“Our daughter Wyatt is 8 years old, and our son Dimitri is almost 6. A child’s brain, no matter how beautiful and rich it may be, is not able to digest this amount of information at once. Therefore, we give them enough information to understand what is happening in the world, but without details. Do they know that these two countries are at war? Yes. Do they know that innocent people are dying? Yes. But we don't watch the news with them. They don't need visuals. We just want them to understand that the world is bigger than they are,” the actress added.
The star admitted that she speaks Russian with her parents.
“We we speak Russian with our parents, so our children grew up on this. They are naturally proud of the fact that they are half Ukrainian. The truth is, I'm a typical American. I grew up in Los Angeles. However, I have never been so proud to be from Ukraine. I am so proud that my children can continue this legacy,” the actress shared.
