Last year Mila Kunis melted the hearts of millions of Americans when she accepted a YouTube invitation to accompany Sgt. Scott Moore, of the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan to his Marine Ball in North Carolina.
And it turns out that this wasn’t just a one-night only gesture.
“We are still in contact,” she told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column at the premiere of her new raunchy comedy, “Ted.” “We e-mail back and forth, and spoke on the phone about a month-and-a-half ago.”
And no doubt Kunis will continue to build her fan base with her forthcoming role as Mark Wahlberg’s lover in “Ted.” There's just one (kind of big) problem in their blossoming romance – he can’t move on from his beloved talking yet highly inappropriate teddy bear, which came to life as a result of a childhood wish.
But it apparently takes a lot to make this 28-year-old screen star wince.
“I was always surrounded by very obnoxious, dry people. My dad included, my dad has the dryest sense of humor of anyone I know. When I was little, he made sure that I was going to have a strong back bone and it developed the sense of humor in me,” Kunis continued. “Plus being on ‘That 70’s Show’ for eight years and being on ‘Family Guy’ for twelve or thirteen, it definitely makes you immune to being offended.”
And while the Ukrainian-born actress spent her own childhood days playing with little friends, they weren’t quite as cute and floppy as the eponymous “Ted.”
“I had a rodent – welcome to communist Russia,” she recalled. “And then a crocodile, which had an accordion and he sang.”
