Mila Kunis Thanks Her Mother for Keeping Her Grounded

January 29, 2010, 6:52 am GMT

The 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' actress is grateful as her mother helped her to remain low profile by encouraging her to work in a drugstore even after she had played a role in 'That '70s Show'.

Mila Kunis has heaped praise on her mother for forcing her to work in a drugstore as a teen - even after she had landed her big break on "That '70s Show". The actress has credited her parents, who immigrated to the U.S. from Ukraine when Kunis was a child, with helping her remain humble at the start of her career by encouraging her to work at a store near their California home.

She tells Fox News, "My mother made me work at Rite-Aid, because my parents work full-time. I worked at 70's on Laurel and Ventura and I couldn't drive because I wasn't sixteen yet, so my mother would come on her lunch break and pick me up from work."

She adds, "But she didn't have time to drop me off back home, so I would have to go to work with her, and what did I do for six hours? My mother would put me behind the photo or ice cream counter and made me work."

She continues, "My parents did a fantastic job raising me. I cannot even begin to explain the stuff they made me do. My parents really made me have a regular life."
