BBC Radio 1's Chris Stark explains his nerves before his 'unconventional' Mila Kunis interview

It has been referred to as the best interview ever. The interview between a star-struck BBC Radio 1 reporter and a starlet actress has gone viral with over 5,500,000 views on YouTube.

Chris Stark, who acts as a side-kick on the Scott Mills radio show, was only given 10 minutes notice that he was being sent to interview actress Mila Kunis for her movie "Oz: The Great and Powerful." This morning, Stark talks about the interview with Soledad O'Brien on “Starting Point.”

Stark says his boss sent him to the interview because he “thought it would be really funny to send me out and see what happens.” As he left to go to the location of the interview, Stark says he panicked and “tried to think of just what questions can you ask a megastar.”

Reflecting on the interview that has since gone viral, Stark says “it all just seems like a bit of a blur.”

“In my eyes it felt like it was going badly. I remember the first thing I asked her because I tried to give her a compliment I mean she’s gorgeous she’s really hot. I think I said something along the lines of was it hard to play someone ugly and I think it just came across really badly,” he says.

During the interview Stark asked Kunis if she would be his “plus 1” to his friend’s wedding, to which she replied “well I’ve gone to a Marine Ball, so what's another?”

But since the interview Stark says he has not heard from Kunis. He adds, “For me it was just an amazing experience and… She just made me feel really comfortable and then I could just chat to her about things that I sort of I was interested in.”
