Mila Kunis still gets a rude quote shouted at her by Family Guy fans when she's out in public.
Family Guy first started in 1999 and Mila Kunis joined at the age of 15.
You'd have thought 25 years after the iconic animated sitcom first started, the hype might have died down slightly, but for Kunis, it's far from it.
Around 25 years later - Kunis turning 40 years old tomorrow (Monday, 14 August) - and the actor is still getting offensive Family Guy lines shouted at her by passersby and has revealed exactly what line it is.
During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, the host joked it's hard to listen to Kunis speak and not just constantly think of Meg Griffin - the character she voices in Family Guy.
Kunis reflects: "Yeah, poor Meg. The one thing I do get the most of is, 'Shut up Meg,' when I'm out on the street.
"All the time, all the time. I walk down the street and someone will be like, 'Haha, shut up Meg.'"
And while Kunis may not appreciate the hurling of the iconic line, fans of the sitcom have found it pretty hilarious.
One YouTube user wrote: "It's so funny to hear that, even after all these years, people still associate her with her character on the show. It just goes to show how powerful and memorable her performance as Meg Griffin was, and how much she has grown and evolved as an actress since then. Keep on slaying, Mila!"
"'Shut up Meg' and 'Damn Jackie' always come to mind when I see her," another said.
However, a third argued: "She's adorable, I can't imagine being rude to her."
"It’s a compliment. They’re just showing they’re fans," a fourth argued.
And a final resolved: "Over the years I think the ‘shut up Meg’ can get old. But, the fact that people would recognize Mila on the streets/what have you, is a subconscious admiration and/or recognition."
Compliment or not, being shouted lines from the show while she walks in the street thankfully hasn't put Kunis off voicing the role of Meg.
In an interview with Collider in 2021, Kunis said: "It’s been the greatest job ever. Ever. Hands down. I dare anybody to tell me that they have a better, more amazing job than that."
She also noted she hopes her experience on the show 'never ends'.
Kunis resolves: "I don’t know what to say. I’m so grateful for this job. I can’t believe people still care. I’m so happy that we have the writers that we have."
