A Bad Moms Christmas is coming, and coming soon. We've already gotten a full and NSFW trailer for the upcoming comedy, which sees stars Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn and Kristen Bell freak dancing with Santa and getting up to other DGAF shenanigans. In her everyday life, Kunis recently revealed that she actually tried to be a perfect mom and do a really cool Santa thing, before realizing it was a total disaster. She said:
You put a little flour on boots and you walk around the living room. And it looks like Santa Claus' footprints with snow on it. She didn't care, didn't understand. And then I was cleaning up flour, and I was like 'This blows.' My kid didn't even care about the flour footprints. The whole thing is a disaster. Disaster.
Putting in a bunch of effort for little to no reward is one of the main things that turns Mila Kunis' character in Bad Moms into someone who no longer cares about being perfect all the time. She's still a good mom in that she loves and tries to be there for her kids, but she's not longer worried about all of the trappings of motherhood--the bake sales, decorating for the holidays, cooking a perfect breakfast every morning and more. Clearly, Mila Kunis had her own Bad Moms moment during her family's most recent Christmas celebrations.
One of my favorite things about Bad Moms are the interview segments in the credits, that show us Kristen Bell, Mila Kunis and the other lead actresses' real-life mothers. The story Mila Kunis told USA Today is similarly adorable, as it shows us the actress in her regular habitat, setting up Christmas for her own little kids, daughter Wyatt and son Dimitri.
Moving forward, it looks as if Mila Kunis and her husband Ashton Kutcher might put the kibosh on all the extra effort, as her daughter was even totally freaked out when just learning the general idea about Santa.
The idea of saying that there's a chunky man that comes through the fireplace, a stranger appears in our house and drops off some gifts and then eats some of your cookies. She was like screaming. There's nothing magical about it. It was like, 'Why was there Santa in my house?' So that was a fail.
Perhaps as her kids age, Santa will in fact get more magical, but after the past year's events, it wouldn't shock me if Mila Kunis took a note from her upcoming movie and toned things down a bit. You can catch the actresses back in action when A Bad Moms Christmas hits theaters on November 3. In the meantime, you can also see what else is hitting theaters with our full movies schedule.
