Trivia that mentions this person:
Oz the Great and Powerful [2013]
  • Because Time Warner owns the rights to certain iconic elements of The Wizard of Oz MGM film, including the ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland, Disney was unable to use them nor any character likenesses from that particular film. This extended to the green of the Wicked Witch's skin, for which Disney used what its legal department considered a sufficiently different shade called "theostein" (a portmanteau of "Theodora" [Greek for "gift from God"] and Frankenstein). However, the studio could not use the signature chin mole of Margaret Hamilton's portrayal of the Wicked Witch of the West. The prosthetics they designed for Mila Kunis demanded four hours to apply and another hour to remove, with Kunis taking nearly two months to fully recover from the subsequent removal of the makeup from her skin.
