The That '70s Show Star You Likely Didn't Know Appeared On The Price Is Right

"The Price is Right" is one of those shows where you're meant to feel the stars are people like you. They're not glammed-up Hollywood types, red-carpet-ready in their designer outfits and stiletto heels. They're middle Americans dressed in jeans and sneakers, equally prepared for a TV appearance and a quick dash to the grocery store.

Every once in a while, however, worlds collide. In January 2011, model Heidi Klum appeared during the show's first Celebrity Week. In February 2022, soap-stars-turned-real-life-romantic-couple Justin Hartley and Sofia Pernas played on a Valentine's Day edition. Bringing on celebrities is, in fact, a tradition that has drawn in the likes of Demi Lovato, Snoop Dogg, Aaron Paul, NeNe Leakes, Chris Daughtry, and many more over the years (via Hollywood.com). But did you happen to catch the episode featuring a significant player from "That '70s Show"?

She lied her way onto That '70s Show

In 1998, Mila Kunis lied about her age to land the role of Jackie Burkhart on "That 70s Show." She auditioned when she was 14 years old and in the ninth grade. "I told them I was going to be 18," she revealed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. "It's not technically a lie 'cause at one point, given all things went right, I was gonna be 18."

By the time she won the role, her age was a non-issue, and she went on to star in the show for eight seasons from 1998 to 2006. In the beginning, Jackie was just Kelso's (Ashton Kutcher) annoying, vain, and self-absorbed girlfriend. Over time, however, her character grew more nuanced as it was revealed that she could be an excellent friend to Donna (Laura Prepon). Jackie's storyline took her through a turbulent relationship with Hyde (Danny Masterson) and concluded in the final episode with her kissing Fez (Wilmer Valderrama). 

Throughout her time on "That 70s Show," Kunis also grew famous for voicing Meg Griffin on "Family Guy." "I hope this never ends ... I'm so grateful for this job. I can't believe people still care," she told Collider in 2021. "It's been the greatest job ever."

She worked tirelessly to build her career

After "That 70s Show" and while continuing her work on "Family Guy," Mila Kunis stretched her creative wings in many more projects. In 2008, she starred in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" alongside Kristen Bell, who played the title role. Soon after, she was cast in the 2010 film "Black Swan" with Natalie Portman. Kunis had a demanding role that required training every day for seven months and continued throughout production. "Aesthetically, I had to look like a ballerina and hold myself like a ballerina. By the end, I was 95 lbs," she told Vogue. "It was so hard and excruciating on anyone's body, and I'm not saying mine alone by any means."

Next, Kunis played the romantic lead opposite Justin Timberlake in the 2011 movie "Friends with Benefits." In 2012, she starred in "Ted" with Mark Wahlberg. In 2013, she played the Wicked Witch of the West in "Oz the Great and Powerful." And in 2015, she starred in "Jupiter Ascending" with Channing Tatum and Eddie Redmayne (via IMDb).

Then in 2016, Kunis played Amy, a wife and mother on the brink, in the movie "Bad Moms." Costars Kathryn Hahn and Kristen Bell were her equally stressed friends, joining her on a quest for fun and freedom. The film was such a hit that by the following year, a sequel, "A Bad Moms Christmas," was in the can. And this was the turning point in her career that led Kunis to her perhaps unexpected appearance on "The Price is Right."

She was a big winner on The Price is Right

On October 30, 2017, Mila Kunis and her friends from the "Bad Moms" franchise, Kathryn Hahn and Kristen Bell, appeared together on "The Price is Right" to promote their upcoming sequel. They rolled in as a surprise in a contestant's brand new car. 

"We don't mean to be rude, Drew," Hahn said (via Instagram). "But it's time to get out of the way."

"Because the Bad Moms are here," Bell added.

"And we're taking over!" Kunis concluded.

 The trio helped contestants play, grabbed host Drew Carey's mic, and had a ton of fun. When Kunis's Big Wheel spin won $1,000, she got more than a little excited. "Mom, hey, look, I made it! This is awesome! This is amazing!" she shouted. "I'm getting emotional!" Kunis wasn't any less thrilled afterward, telling People she'd had a magical experience and was blown away by the audience's energy.

Two days later, on November 1, "A Bad Moms Christmas" hit theaters. This time Kunis, Hahn, and Bell reprised their roles while dealing with the stresses brought on by their characters' mothers, played by Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines, and Susan Sarandon. Shortly after the film's release, plans for "Bad Moms' Moms" were announced, though Kunis and her onscreen pals weren't confirmed for the project. The best place to look for Kunis these days is the spinoff "That '90s Show" on Netflix, where she'll reprise her role as a grown-up Jackie.
