Mila Kunis describes working with Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz as a "gift".
The three actresses play witches Theodora (Mila), Glinda the Good (Michelle) and Evanora (Rachel) in Sam Raimi's upcoming Disney film 'Oz the Great and Powerful' and Mila's reason behind singing up to the project was down to her co-stars - also comprising James Franco as Oz and Zach Braff as Finley the monkey.
Speaking at the press conference for 'Oz the Great and Powerful' at London's Claridge's Hotel Ballroom on Friday (01.03.13), she told BANG Showbiz: "Just to be able to work with Sam was a huge honor and the ladies are the most co-stars that anybody could ever ask for. But truly they are, and I'm not just saying. Rachel and Michelle are a gift. And working with James has always been fun for me.
"So it was a no brainer. Oh and Zach! I can't leave Zach out. Zach Braff's awesome."
Rachel was also excited when offered her role in the project and believes Sam is the real wizard who brought the sequel to the 1939 classic 'The Wizard of Oz' to life.
She said: "I really loved the script, I loved the character. Sam Raimi is ... he is the wizard. He's the wizard that drew us all to the Emerald City."
