Remember in my first Mila Kunis interview post the subject of makeup was discussed. In case you missed it, I’m including it here first. After you read that the questions in today’s post will probably make more sense. And you’ll know who the green witch is.
Q : How was the makeup?
MILA KUNIS : I think the beginning process was four hours and by the end a little under two. Putting the makeup on, not a problem. Taking the makeup off, every night it makes your face swell. Like it legitimately puffs it up. If you imagine whipping your skin every day, that’s what it does and it’s a full prosthetic piece. I had two pieces and it’s the bottom part and then the nose and the eyebrows. And it doesn’t matter how gently Howard did it and Howard — the special effects is a beautiful job, you rip the skin. You’re constantly pulling at your skin every single night so it does, it makes it — wherever Tracy is. It puffs it up a little bit, right? Tracy did all the makeup for all my films on a normal basis. But like the prosthetics, I don’t understand like you take it off.
It’s awful. It’s awful. It’s not even pleasant and the smell of something called Snappy G which is the gluing adhesive. They glue it with like a cement type glue to your face. I think that if I had to smell it today it would probably make me cry. Like that would be my natural reaction. I’d be like oh, god. It’s not pleasant.
Q : Which witch do you like playing more?
MILA KUNIS : Truth is I do find that it’s the same character, I really do. I think it’s just a woman scorned and it’s a character that goes through a transformation, an emotional transformation of a heartache and just so happens to transform in color but I think that the deep rooted aspect of it is just, you know, a broken heart so I think it’s the same thing. It was fun to play both, for sure.
Q : At the beginning of the movie did you think she was good?
MILA KUNIS : Yes, I do think that she had to think that her sister was a good witch and that Glinda the good witch, is theoretically the wicked witch.
Q : The Hulk is green too.
MILA KUNIS : The green thing I don’t think frightens kids. Like it frightened me when I was like little because I didn’t have the internet and didn’t have all these other things that were in front of me at all times and accessible. Now a days, I don’t think these things scare kids. I think that kids are so desensitized to violence and I don’t mean this in a negative way what so ever, but, I just think it’s the reality that I think that it’s just all changing so I don’t know.
Here’s a closer look at the Wicked Witch’s costume, taken with a Lytro camera. You should be able to pull the picture around and see different angles.

Synopsis – Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great wizard but into a better man as well. “Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with screen story by Mitchell Kapner and screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire. Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Josh Donen and Philip Steuer are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.
