This summer's sleeper comedy hit sees the Ukrainian-born Black Swan star acting alongside a foul-mouthed CGI teddy voiced by Seth MacFarlane. When the Guardian met both, what could possibly go wrong?

I did not plan to get into a shouting match with Mila Kunis. Showing Seth MacFarlane anything other than respect and admiration was the furthest thing from my mind. When I sat down with the dark-eyed actor and the filthy-rich animation mogul to discuss Ted, the R-rated CGI/live-action comedy that marks MacFarlane's debut feature as director, I was more than happy to assume the role of satisfied audience member. For me, and for the majority of moviegoing America, Ted has been the surprise hit of the summer. It's the story of John, a friendless Boston tween, who makes a Christmas wish for a best buddy. A holiday miracle occurs when John's teddy bear starts to walk and talk. »
