This is a hilariously fun interview to watch. In the video above a self-admitted rookie, Chris Stark of BBC Radio 1 (U.K.), interviews mega-star Mila Kunis. He's supposed to be asking her questions about Kunis' latest screen role as "Theodora" - the youngest witch in the new movie, "Oz, the Great and Powerful". Stark is clearly smitten with Ms. Kunis (as are most men) and he freely admits his anxiety. Because of candidness - and Mila's empathy - a highly entertaining interview ensues. Lots of Body language here - worthy of many posts. Here are a just a few highlights which are instructive and will surprise many:
Here is Stark from the front a few seconds later persisting in this head touching. He's also blushing (which he does easily and often throughout the interview).
A few more seconds pass and Ms. Kunis mirrors his action. We mirror people who we:
- are "in sync" with,
- who we respect, or
- those to whom we're attracted.
But which one is it?
Mila drops other verbal and nonverbal hints during this interview - can you spot them? She has a very high empathy quotient. Can you recognize this incredibly valuable quality? What other body language beacons are signaled here?
