Mila Kunis asked to explain the plot of Jupiter Ascending, fails drastically

It seems that some things just aren't possible

It seems harsh to think that Mila Kunis would rather eat a cow's tongue than be forced to explain the plot of her 2015 film Jupiter Ascending but that is exactly the case.

Appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the actor was participating in the segment 'Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts' which sees celebrities either choose to answer probing questions or alternatively tuck into a disgusting concoction including grasshoppers and clam juice.

Kunis - promoting new comedy Bad Moms alongside Christina Applegate - was asked the two questions she probably hoped wouldn't arise: "Can you explain the plot of the movie you were in, Jupiter Ascending? Then explain why you did it."

In fairness to Kunis, she began to make a stab at it. "You know," she began. "It's about human desire to..."

But that was all she could muster. Instead, the actor resigned herself to taking a chunk out of the cow tongue lying in front of her. Click to 4:28 to see the moment for yourself.

Kunis starred in Jupiter Ascending alongside Channing Tatum. For those who are wondering, the Wachowskis fantasy film follows a young woman who discovers she's an intergalactic heiress and must protect Earth from being destroyed by ancient forces.

She wasn't the only one who evaded a question; Applegate later asked Corden which his least favourite Carpool Karaoke has been. Instead of answering, he took a mouthful of cat's brain.

Bad Moms is released in the UK on 26 August.
