By Valerie ChenWhen actress Mila Kunis isn’t starring in movies alongside a potty-mouthed teddy bear or voicing Meg Griffin on “Family Guy,” she enjoys giving Banksy a run for his money on the streets of Los Angeles.

In an interview for Glamour, Kunis says that like much of Young Hollywood she supports President Barack Obama. But the way she does it is a little different than the rest of her glamorous peers:

Glamour: Do you fund-raise for Obama?
Mila Kunis: More like street-art-based stuff in Los Angeles that I can’t talk about…because I’m pretty sure it’s illegal.
Glamour: You graffiti?
Mila Kunis: Mm-hmm. I’d rather do that. I don’t need attention for it. What I truly believe in I will do privately.

You've already said too much, Mila. Now we're curious to know just which graffiti works belong to the handiwork of the actress.Since Kunis is pro-Obama, we're guessing she didn't do this Ron Paul poster that later got torn down on Rodeo Drive. And we don't think she's the mystery artist putting up these (admittedly cheesy) inspirational messages? Maybe she helped out Shepard Fairey with his famous "HOPE" posters during the last election, but it sounds like she's been active during this election cycle.

We'd love to know more, but the 28-year-old actress is smart to keep details about her pasttime to herself, lest she face the wrath of the city attorney and certain city councilmen who aren't afraid to crack down on street artists. Recently, the prolific taggers in the Metro Transit Assassins (MTA) were sentenced to performing 100 hours of graffiti removal and were forced to abide by an adult curfew.

Careful Mila, turning into a pumpkin before midnight could really put a damper on a Hollywood lifestyle.
