Award-winning actress Mila Kunis is often in the headlines for her relationship with Ashton Kutcher or her new acting gigs. Now, however, she is making headlines for a prank that she pulled. Though, she claims it was no prank.
Kunis was recently interviewed by comedian Conan O'Brien on his show. The host had asked the actress about an alleged "prank" that she had been playing on Vice President Mike Pence.
Before Kunis revealed what she had been up to, she wanted to give a disclaimer.
She said, "This is when a lot of hate mail comes my way. I apologize if I'm offending anybody."
She went on to explain that she had been sending monetary donations to Planned Parenthood on behalf of VP Pence. The donations are recurring and his name is part of a list of donors.
Kunis said that she strongly disagrees with the opinions of Vice President Pence, a longtime opponent of abortion rights. In March, the vice president voted in a tie-breaker to help the Senate move forward with abandoning an Obama administration decision that blocks states from defunding specific health-care providers.
She said, "It's not so much a prank as much as I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing, and was trying to do. So as a reminder that there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of recurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood."
Kunis said that in return for recurring donations, Planned Parenthood sends VP Pence a type of "Thank You" letter.
She said, "Every month, to his office, he gets a little letter that says 'an anonymous donation has been made in your name.'"
The actress said that rather than thinking about it as a prank, she thinks about it as a "peaceful protest."
She said, "I literally, I strongly disagree, and this is my little way of showing it."
