The Ted actress, now 29, starred in a commercial for Lisa Frank's beloved unicorn-and-teddy-bear-covered line of stickers, notebooks, binders and folders back in 1993.
Rocking a matching denim dress and bucket hat, Ashton Kutcher's future girlfriend goes on a shopping spree at a Lisa Frank store. "I gotta have it -- what can I say?" she exclaims.
Her feigned excitement over neon school supplies must have gotten her noticed by somebody; two years later, the Black Swan scene-stealer landed the role of Susie Grogan on TV horror movie Piranha, as well as a guest starring part on Baywatch.
Kunis says even at the age of 12, she had a hard time finding her Baywatch character believable.
"I played a blind girl who's lost in the forest next to the beach and needs to be saved. It was absurd," Kunis told W magazine last year. "There's a fire, I get saved, and then I go boogie-boarding. I remember thinking, 'Well, if I'm blind, how am I boogie-boarding? No one ever gave me an answer.'"
