Mila Kunis Not Trying to be Judy Garland

Monday, April 30, 2012

MILA Kunis says following the yellow brick road is far from easy.

The Black Swan beauty says playing a version of Judy Garland‘s famous Dorothy character in The Wizard of Oz prequel OZ: The Great and Powerful was almost too much to deal with.

“It was very nerve-wracking for me because the character became such an icon for what she was,” says Mila.

“Judy Garland was so brilliant at it that I would never want to take that and copy it.

“Nobody could ever do that. I just tried to take the character and tried to reinterpret it to give it reason to be what she has become.”
