She's funny, she's sexy and she has a leading role in Family Guy: just some of the good reasons Mila Kunis is a woman we love

As she partners up with Jim Beam for their new ‘Make History’ campaign, we caught up with the actress to find out about the things that make her tick, from booze to bands to books.

Music: This is going to sound really clichéd – but The Beatles. They were the first cross over band, and they’re from your country, so that’s awesome. 'Back In The USSR' is my favourite song. But I think what makes that band so great is that you can't really pick and choose, they're so consistent. I also like U2 and the Foo Fighters – I like any band that stands for something and believes in something.

Literature: I love Huckleberry Finn – it's a book that’s very influential, very specific to its time and it’s oddly controversial to this day. I loved it growing up and it’s so interesting that in 2014 we won’t allow our kids to read it. 

Men: I think a man should have his drink on the rocks. I think there’s something sexy, classy and modern about a simple beverage – it's James Bond style. You never want to see a man who’s pounding shots and making a fool of himself. You want a man who can hold his liquor and sip it.

Drinking: There are three ways I like to drink bourbon. First, as a Penicillin – that's ginger beer, bourbon, soda water and honey – it's delicious. Then Jim Beam Jacob's Ghost with soda and lime, and a lot of time I just like black label on the rocks. 

On acting: I think the most important thing is to be proud of the choices that you make and learn from them – I’m not perfect, but I’ll stand by my decisions.
