Our heart breaks for her.

Poor Mila Kunis, GQ’s Knockout of the Year, isn’t happy with her body and sits home alone in the evenings. Or so her cover story in April’s Harper’s Bazaar makes it seem.

Apparently, once Kunis gained back the 20 or so pounds that she lost in order to play a ballerina in “Black Swan,” the weight didn’t distribute itself the way she would’ve liked. “When I got down to 95 pounds, I was muscles, like a little brick house, but skin and bones. When I gained it back it went to completely different areas,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. “I’d be happy if my ass got bigger. All the weight that left my chest went to my side hip, my stomach.”

But she says she isn’t worrying too much about her weight, admitting to enjoying good food and wine (she works out with a trainer three times a week to try to keep weight gain in check).

The only problem, it seems, is that she is having a glass alone many an evening. Kunis claims she is a homebody who likes to stay in and watch TV most nights. Believe it or not, she insists that she hasn’t been dating. “I don’t get asked out,” she says.

The Shmooze suspects this is just a temporary phase. Kunis, skinny butt and all, is undoubtedly many a man’s dream date.

He would applaud the IDF, which warns civilians before bombing them in a justified war, not Hamas terrorists who cower behind their own civilians, target neighboring civilians, and planned to swarm civilian settlements on the Jewish New Year."

  • "My husband has been offered a terrific new job in a decent-sized Midwestern city. This is mostly great, except for the fact that we will have to leave our beloved NYC, where one can feel Jewish without trying very hard. He is half-Jewish and was raised with a fair amount of Judaism and respect for our tradition though ultimately he doesn’t feel Jewish in that Larry David sort of way like I do. So, he thinks I am nuts for hesitating to move to this new essentially Jew-less city. Oh, did I mention I am pregnant? Seesaw, this concern of mine is real, right? There is something to being surrounded by Jews, no? What should we do?"
