Milana Vayntrub: Early Life
Milana Vyantrub was born on March 8 in 1987, in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Jewish by religion, she is an American actress and comedian well known for her role in the AT&T commercials as the salesperson Lily Adams. Milana grew up in the United States as her family emigrated to the US as refugees when she was just two and a half years old. This is the reason why, despite being born in Uzbekistan, it’s tough to recognize any accent in her voice. She has a negligible to nil accent that’s almost impossible to detect since she was barely a kid when she moved to the US and was practically raised there.
Owing to her family’s financial status, the now incredibly famous actress Milana, started her acting career at the age of five through Mattel Barbie advertisements. She was enrolled in the Beverly Hills High School but quit after her sophomore year to pursue her GED and later earned a Bachelor in Communication from the University of California, San Diego.
One of the first breakthroughs for Milana in the industry was the TV series ER in which she played the character Tatiana and appeared for three episodes. Starring alongside celebrities like George Clooney in the series gave her huge exposure and opened a lot of opportunities for Milana. Since 1995, she has appeared in a diverse lot of TV series and films. Some of these include Californication, Silicon Valley, House of Lies, The Division, The League and many more.
Bagging her first stint at the age of five, it was aptly clear that Milana was on the road to stardom and fame in the years to come. She took the right steps towards achieving her goal by pursuing the communications degree as well as learning improv comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.
However, the role she is the most recognized for remains Lily Adams in the AT&T commercials series. She has appeared as the aforementioned character for the TV ads since 2013 and is widely acclaimed for her character as the salesperson. Yet, she has more to her credit than just commercials and has proved her mettle as an actor and comedian repeatedly through whatever role she has taken on.
Milana has also collaborated with other stars to create some amazing content over the years. She teamed up with Stevie Nelson to launch a YouTube channel with the name Live Prude Girls. The channel showcases comedy videos and is quite popular with over 100,000+ followers. Milana, along with Stevie, also created and appeared in the web series Let’s Talk About Something More Interesting that went to become a huge hit and a talk of the town, watched by millions all over the world. The series made its way to the 93rd spot of the NewMediaRockstars’ Top 100 Channels Countdown. She also appeared in the acclaimed American soap opera Days of Our Lives that gave her much fame and popularity and showed people that she was as diverse as an actor can be. Vayntrub also appeared in the hit NBS series This Is Us, in which she played the character of Sloane Sandburg.
Milana made her debut in Hollywood after years of appearing in short but positive roles in TV serials. In 2011, she launched her film career by enacting the role of Tanya in the movie Life Happens, a hugely successful film that has star-studded cast showcasing celebrities like Rachel Bilson and Kate Bosworth.
In one of her acclaimed roles, Milana gave voice to the superhit Marvel Comics superhero Squirrel Girl in 2017 in the animated feature movie Marvel Rising: Secret Warrior, bagging practically the lead cast. She has also been offered the lead role in the forthcoming Marvel’s TV series New Warriors, in which she’ll play the role of Squirrel Girl.
While their names aren’t publicly known, Milana’s parents have always been the support system of the actress. Even though she entered into the field of entertainment due to her family’s financial distress, her parents never lost focus on her education and encouraged her to pursue studies. She dropped out of school but went on to complete her bachelors in communications from a highly reputed college.
Milana has reportedly been in multiple relationships over the years, some of them being extremely high profile and putting her in the limelight. However, a number of men she dated have been unknown to the media and did not belong to the industry.
The most famous relationship she had was with the popular singer John Meyer, a music icon who is incredibly famous for his romantic number and the personal charm he carries. Their relationship was much talked about in the media as soon as the news was leaked. Yet, while the fans cheered and hailed it as the most perfect pairings, they separated after a year of dating, in 2007. While the breakup came as a surprise, they were both amicable about it and didn’ let the situation turn ugly on any account, accepting their differences.
Presently, there are no reports of Milana dating anyone nor of getting married anytime soon. The popular actress continues to mark her presence in the industry through diverse roles and appearances, widening her scope by taking on different characters and also branching out to multiple genres.
In 2016, Milana Vayntrub went to Greece and witnessed the state of the refugee families there. She also interacted with them and empathized with their plight, having to flee from their homes due to the civil war in Syria. The situation evoked Milana’s deep-seeded memories of her own escape from Tashkent as a refugee. In her effort to make a difference, Milana initiated a campaign on social media with the hashtag “#CantDoNothing”. She also launched a website for the movement to support the victims of the European migrant crisis.
Milana Vayntrub revealed that she had an abortion a few years ago and urged supporters of abortion rights in the country. The 35-year-old actress talked about the day she unintentionally forgot to take birth control and became pregnant in an opinion article she wrote for the publication The Daily Beast. She claimed that she had no doubts about her decision to abort the child because she did not want to have a child that she “did not want and could not care for.”
The actress claimed that the arrival of her first kid in 2021 served as further evidence of the significance of protecting reproductive rights and ensuring access to safe abortion. Vayntrub claimed that the fact that she had chosen to go through with the labor and delivery process—which also encompassed pain, nausea, and expenses on both a material and emotional level—made it bearable. She also spoke on planned laws protecting access to abortion services as well as the Women’s Health Protection Act. She then invited people to band together with her to use every available means to bring the matter to the government’s attention.
