Before Mila Kunis did Oscar nominated fare like "Black Swan," she was just another girl trouble on "Baywatch" ... twice!

Kunis opens up about her humble beginnings as an actor in the March issue of W Magazine, saying “I was on Baywatch twice. The second time, I played a blind girl who’s lost in the forest next to the beach and needs to be saved. It was absurd: There’s a fire, I get saved, and then I go boogie-boarding. I remember thinking, Well, if I’m blind, how am I boogie-boarding? No one ever gave me an answer.”

Luckily, things have gotten a bit better over the years with starring gigs on "That 70s Show," "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and most recently, "Black Swan," where she had to pick up dance for the first time.

“I had never danced in my life," Kunis says of the ballet movie, "I trained for four months, seven days a week, five hours a day. I had one day off on my birthday. I lost 20 pounds. I tore a ligament. I dislocated my shoulder. I have two scars on my back. And it was worth every minute.  But I will never dance again... I was like, Well—I wear heels; I can do this. I was wrong: Christian Louboutins are uncomfortable, but I screamed the first time I put on a pointe shoe.”
