Mark this in the category of surprising things we learned about an actress today: Mila Kunis is apparently an enormous 'Star Trek' fan. (Cue Trekkies everywhere jumping for joy.)

In the upcoming issue of GQ (out July 17), the 'Friends With Benefits' star discusses her love of the sci-fi series by ranking her favorites (she puts 'The Next Generation' first). She also talked about her favorite comedians, working with Hulk Hogan (in 1996's 'Santa With Muscles') and women in Hollywood. Some choice quotes from the discussion below:

On the time she went to a 'Star Trek' convention in Las Vegas:
I went to the Star Trek Experience in Vegas maybe five years ago. I hung out with a bunch of fake characters inside Quark's bar. [Ed note: Quark was the name of the Ferengi bartender on 'Deep Space 9.'] There were all these actors there pretending to be the different characters from the different shows. Yes, I loved it.

On who she thinks is hilarious:
Lucille Ball is perfection -- her timing and her commitment. Sarah Silverman is raunchy and brilliant, and people call her out for saying f*cked-up stuff­ that they wouldn't have a problem with a man saying. How dare she? Who else? Tina Fey. She's a genius. I actually just finished reading 'Bossypants.'

On working with Hulk Hogan:
I was too young to fully understand the importance of working with Hulk Hogan. I just thought he was this huge man. Shatner was di­fferent. I'm a massive Trekkie, so that was crazy. He's exactly what you think he is.

On women in Hollywood:
The bottom line is if you're an attractive female in this industry, people just take you as that: attractive. People aren't getting the opportunity to move beyond being attractive. It's not only with comedy. It could be with drama or action or whatever. People are distracted by looks. It happens. I'm not saying it happened to me, but it happens.
