The magazine has crowned the 29-year-old actress as the “Sexiest Woman Alive,” and to celebrate the title, Kunis is featured in a sultry spread shot by Cliff Watts, whose previous muses have included Heidi Klum, Rachel Weisz and Anne Hathaway.

In Esquire’s feature story, Kunis opened up about being funny and spending most of her young career on That ‘70s Show.

“I think I stumbled upon doing funny things, but I’m not funny. I just know how to deliver a joke,” Kunis told the magazine.

“Through twenty years of doing this, I practice it. I think that the second you think that you’re funny is when you stop being funny,” she said, adding that eight years on the TV series taught her a thing or two about being funny.

“You learn a lot. Jokes come in threes . . . you can learn the timing of a joke, but it doesn’t mean that you’re going to become Lucille Ball.”

What else did the newly crowned Sexiest Woman Alive dish on?

 Kunis, who next stars in 2013’s Oz: The Great and Powerful alongside James Franco and Michelle Williams, revealed to Esquire on how she stays grounded.

“I think that I’ve consciously separated my two lives. I love what I do. I couldn’t imagine anything else. But when I’m done with work, I’m done with work,” she told the magazine.

“I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am, and so much of who I am is what my parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that. Ever,” she continued.

In the interview, Kunis also touches on privacy and Hollywood, something the actress is all to familiar with — now more than ever — thanks to her new romance with Ashton Kutcher.

“It’s common sense: Privacy is privacy. I no longer have it,” she told the magazine.

When Esquire asked if Kunis was waiting for the question about who she’s dating, the actress quickly fired back: “Not from Esquire.”
