Ac­tor Mila Ku­nis says women need to have a life out­side of be­ing a mother for their own san­ity. The ac­tor, who is mar­ried to ac­tor Ash­ton Kutcher, has two chil­dren. “Moms need to de­com­press. Moms are still women, and they need to have a life out­side of be­ing a mom for their own san­ity,” Ku­nis said in a state­ment. On the film front, the 34-year-old ac­tor is look­ing for­ward to A Bad Moms Christ­mas, se­quel of Bad Moms (2016). The film, which chal­lenged the “per­fect mother” stereo­type in a fun way, was a huge suc­cess last year. The se­quel, which also fea­tures actors Kris­ten Bell and Kathryn Hahn, is writ­ten and di­rected by Jon Lu­cas and Scott Moore. The soon-to-re­lease hol­i­day-themed se­quel re­volves around the life of three moth­ers, who de­cline to ruin their Christ­mas by do­ing all the chores, cook­ing, wrap­ping, dec­o­rat­ing, shop­ping and look­ing af­ter every­body. Talk­ing about the male au­di­ence of the movie at an event, Ku­nis said: “I think it took a minute for the men to go it’s okay for them to see the movie. And when they did, they got it.” To this, Bell added, “Au­di­ences can all re­late to moth­er­hood in some way. You ei­ther know a mom, are a mom, or have a mom. It’s a uni­ver­sal theme and the stress of moth­er­hood par­tic­u­larly in this day and age is a lot.”
