If you trace back Mila Kunis’ 18-year career as an actor, it all happened after she moved as a child from Ukraine to the Los Angeles condo where her parents, Elvira and Mark, still live today. While there, she landed her breakout role as Jackie Burkhart on the television series That ’70s Show, on which she dated the character Michael Kelso, played by Ashton Kutcher, who’s now Kunis’ husband. “My career happened there,” Kunis says of the condo.
Recently, Kunis decided to surprise her parents with a renovation of the living, dining and kitchen areas in the home. That way, when the growing extended family got together, her mother, who loves to cook, wouldn’t feel isolated in the kitchen from the group. The renovation is part of the latest episode of My Houzz, a video series documenting public figures as they surprise a close family member with a home renovation. The pilot episode of My Houzz featured Kutcher, who is an executive producer of the series.
