Mila Kunis hopes that her legacy in life is 'having amazing children'

Mila Kunis has a straightforward idea of what she wants her legacy to be.

Of course, the 34-year-old actress has a long time before she really has to think about what she wants to be best known for in life, but between her iconic role on "That '70s Show" and in films like "Black Swan" and "Bad Moms," Kunis must have idea of how she wants to be remembered, right?

Right. But, it turns out, her desired mark on history has nothing to do with work and everything to do with her children, daughter Wyatt, 2, and son Dimitri, 10 months.

"At this moment, hopefully my legacy is having amazing children," she told AOL Entertainment during a recent sit-down interview. "That's all I got for you. They're babies right now, but I just hope that I leave behind good humans."

Kunis' family-first mentality about her growing family with husband Ashton Kutcher made her a perfect match to work with family-owned Jim Beam, who she's been partnering with for years now. It was the family's authenticity that gravitated Kunis to the brand collaboration.

"The fact that there's an actual family behind this massive company makes it feel tangible to me," she explained to us at the Jim Beam Vanilla launch party. "Even though Jim Beam is such a huge brand -- such a huge company -- it's still run by family members. There is very much a groundedness to it that I love."

Another things she loves? Working with "Bad Moms" co-stars Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn. The hilarious trio is gearing up to release the follow-up to their R-rated hit, with "A Bad Moms Christmas" set to hit theaters on Nov. 1. It's Kunis' professional chemistry with her co-stars that she credits with the film's ability to connect and garner outrageous laughs.

"We always just showed up, shot the sh-t in the hair and makeup trailer, talked about our kids and whose kid kept who up the night before," she explained of their working relationships. "We all know our lines, we all know what we’re supposed to do and then we go home at the end of the day to our families. It’s a very well-oiled machine. Those projects come around so few and far between that you wish they were the six-month-long projects, but this was more like three months. When both the first and second movies ended, we were like, 'Ugh, we wish this was longer!'"

When "Bad Moms" was released last summer, it was touted by the industry as a surprise success after it made over $100 million at the box office off of a $20 million budget. But, anyone familiar with Kunis, Bell or Hahn would realize that, actually, the film's success shouldn't have come as a surprise. They're all genuinely funny, popular stars who have been part of successful films in the past.

But that's what seems to happen with a film is fronted by a woman or a group of women: It's considered a surprise that audiences will buy tickets to see it in theaters, and Kunis is calling BS on that.

"Every time I hear someone say, ‘That movie was actually really funny’ or, ‘That movie was actually successful,’ it's like, nobody says that about a male-driven anything," she explained to us. "You have something like ‘Wonder Woman,’ which was a fabulous, fantastic movie that happened to have had a female star and director. Then, everyone is like, ‘Well, look at this [surprising] success!’ Meanwhile, a thousand male-driven films succeed and fail without comment. One does well or poorly for women, and everyone reacts."

From this summer's "Girls Trip" and "Wonder Woman" to "Bridesmaids" in 2011 and "Bad Moms" in 2016, it's an industry trend that refuses to go away. So what will it take for it to change?

"It’s going to take a minute," Kunis admitted to us. "It’s weird, but it will. It’s the world that we live in, and hopefully people can go past this. It’s crazy that I’m talking about it, considering we come from an industry that had Lucille Ball and Mary Tyler Moore and so many amazing comedians, yet people are still like, ‘Women are funny?’"
