Actress Mila Kunis has opened up about the differences she has noticed between raising a boy vs girl.

During an appearance on Ellen to promote her upcoming movie, The Spy Who Dumped Me, Mila opened up about the contrast between raising her three-year-old daughter Wyatt and 15-month-old son Dimitri.

“They’re incredibly different,” the 34-year-old explained. “My boy’s like a sloth, he’s wonderful, and I love him – ’cause one day he’ll probably watch this and be like, ‘Why did you say that?’ – but the truth is, women are smarter than men. And I have this evidence from my two different humans that I created.”

“Girls are just on it and boys are like, “Dum da-dum da-dum da-dum,” they’re more like little linebackers going through life, and like … Neanderthal-ish,” she continued.

“Wyatt will be like ‘Pass the cup, please,’ and my boy’s like ‘ungh, ungh,’ That’s it! That’s all you get and you’re like, ‘Ungh? What could ungh be?’ You look around, you’re like, ‘Ah, ball!’ There’s just a huge difference.”

Have you noticed any real difference between the two genders as a parent?

  • All kids are different and two kids does not a scientific study make. There would be plenty of parents with children of the same sex with these differences.

    • I agree – 2 children is a small sample. :)


  • All children are different regardless of gender.


  • Sure they are different, but it’s a bit early to tell from a 3yr old and a 15months old. Beside the fact that our kids differ in character, personality and intelligence, they need some maturing before they come till full blossom.


  • I have found the difference between my two is that my son is not as highly strung as his little sister. Her temper can go from mild to over the top in the time it takes to microwave a bottle! Thomas has been quick to pick things up but was a slow starter to walk.
