Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum "got in trouble" for losing too much weight filming 'Jupiter Ascending' but the actress insists the shoot was so gruelling, every day was like "boot camp"

Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum "got in trouble" for losing too much weight filming 'Jupiter Ascending'.

The 31-year-old actress - who has two-month-old daughter Wyatt with fiancé Ashton Kutcher - admits the futuristic action adventure was the most physically demanding project she has ever undertaken and felt like a "massive boot camp".

She said: "The whole film was a massive boot camp. I have no body fat in this movie for the first time in my life.

"For five days a week, you train every single day, for six months. Just work out all day long for six months and yu too will have no body fat.

"We both got in trouble for losing too much weight. It was really bad."

Mila doesn't think she is very much like her character Jupiter because she has always believed in herself and felt supported.

She told SFX magazine: "Even at my lowest when I was trying to figure my life out or going through puberty I never doubted myself like Jupiter did.

"I always had a very good backbone, being my family. Which was always an incredible support system.

"So anytime I questioned anything it was never as dire as Jupiter. I think Jupiter feels like she's alone. I've always been very lucky where I never felt alone."

Jupiter Jones (Kunis) is a disgruntled cleaner who's rescued by a snarling lycanthrope in gravity boots (Tatum) in order to fulfil her true destiny as monarch of Earth. The Wachowskis' labour of love plays like a complicated mix of The Princess Diaries and The Fifth Element, except that it's neither gritty nor…
