Mila Kunis,, when asked which she looks for in a man, responded: " "I want both! Sure! Who doesn't? I look for it in my friends. Why not? I'd like to think I'm fun and fearless, but I think I have my days where I'm probably really scared and not so much fun. But I'd like to think I take risks and take chances and enjoy my life." [Via]
