During an interview on the WTF Marc Maron podcast, Kunis revealed how she and Kutcher reconnected six years after the end of That ’70s Show.
So, how did Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher get together?
Turns out, their relationship mirrored romantic comedies the two actors had done the year prior.
“I did a movie called Friends With Benefits,” Kunis told the podcast host. “He did a movie that was very similar: No Strings Attached. We lived our movies out, where we were like, ‘Let’s just hook up. Let’s have fun. We’re both single. We both trust each other. Everything’s great.’ None of us wanted tension. OK, great. We hooked up for three months. And just like our movies, one of us caught feelings.”
Ain’t that always how it goes…
Kunis knew she was in for more than she bargained for when she started to care Kutcher was seeing other people.
“I all of a sudden had a sense that I got punched in the gut,” the 34-year-old actress continued. “I felt it. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m in love with this man and I have to walk away because this is not the agreement that we had.”
So, being the powerful, communicative woman Mila Kunis is, she told Kutcher how she felt, intending to part ways for good.
The next day, at seven, eight in the morning, he just showed up at my house,” continued Kunis. “He showed up at my house and was like, ‘Let’s move in together.’ And I was like, ‘You can’t do this. It’s too early for you,’ because he was only single at that point for maybe a year, a year and a half… I said you need to date other people. And he said, ‘I’m not gonna lose you.'”
Now, that is quality content, people.
As for their working relationship on That ’70s Show, Kunis insists neither of them felt a romantic connection at the time.
“The people that we were back then would never be together,” Kunis concluded. “But it’s just such a bummer that we missed out on 20 years together. I look back and I think, ‘We could have spent 20 years together.'”
Instead, the couple has been married three years, and share two little ones together: 3-year-old Wyatt and 1-year-old Dimitri.
Now, we just have to wait until Kunis is promoting her next movie to find out how he proposed!
