Mila Kunis has proven to be the perfect daughter with her latest endeavor: A complete overhaul of her parents’ Los Angeles condo. Working with Houzz, as part of their “My Houzz” makeover series, Kunis surprised her parents with a newly renovated home, taking it from “Miami Vice” circa 1994 to a new modern, open-plan apartment.
Kunis and her family immigrated to Los Angeles from the Ukraine in 1991 at the age of 7, with only $250 in their pockets. Kunis said in an interview with The Telegraph, “That was all we were allowed to take with us. My parents had given up good jobs and degrees, which were not transferable. We arrived in New York on a Wednesday and by Friday morning my brother and I were at school in LA.”
At the age of 9, Kunis moved into the condo in Los Angeles, where her parents have lived ever since. In the video, out today on Houzz.com, a very pregnant Kunis notes that her biggest live moments happened in that home, including graduating high school, getting her first dog and, of course, the start of her booming career.
