Mila Kunis is not in feuding with Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann because she took the lead role in Bad Moms after the husband and wife team dropped out of the project. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this fake news. We're told there's no truth to it.
Back when Bad Moms was first in development in 2015, Mann was set to star in the comedy and Apatow was on board as a producer, but the spouses exited the movie due to scheduling conflicts. Kunis took over the starring role in Bad Moms with Christina Applegate and Kristen Bell, and the film went on to become a huge hit, spawning a 2017 sequel. According to RadarOnline, Mann and Apatow are sore about the movie becoming a success without them.
An alleged insider tells the site, "Mila is really tired of the backstage drama surrounding Bad Moms... Now that it's all panned out into a real hit series of films, Mila wants to put the knives away and have a relationship with Leslie and Judd again." But as the story goes, Apatow and Mann just "can't let it go." The supposed source further contends that Apatow "just holds grudges forever and rubs his success in people's faces," so he's still angry he "made the wrong bet." Meanwhile, it's said that Kunis doesn't want the Hollywood couple to be her "enemies," but they're taking out their supposed frustration on the actress.
There's simply no truth to any of this. As opposed to the website, which claims to know Kunis' feelings based on a nameless and entirely non-transparent "source," the actress' rep exclusively assures Gossip Cop on the record that she isn't in any sort of battle with Mann and Apatow. End of story. Still, another mutual friend of ours and Mann and Apatow also tells us the blog's article is fabricated.
It's worth noting, the husband and wife team made the decision to drop out of Bad Moms. They weren't pushed aside by Kunis, so there would be no reason to have any animosity towards the actress. Also, the movie was released in summer 2016, so it's odd that this story is only emerging now. Regardless, it's all nonsense.
Additionally, this isn't the first time RadarOnline has made up a story about Mann and Apatow feuding with an A-list actress. Gossip Cop previously busted the site for falsely claiming that Jennifer Aniston refused to star in one of the producer's comedies because she hates his wife. This latest article involving Kunis is equally bogus.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
