Mila Kunis opened up about the day Ashton Kutcher declared his love for her
Fans have been shipping Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher since their Jackie and Kelso days on That ’70s Show, but it turns out their adorable real-life romance is more Hollywood than anything they’ve ever acted on screen. In an interview on the podcast WTF with Marc Maron, Kunis revealed how Kutcher first asked her to move in with him — and it’s literally like something right out of a rom-com.
“I did a movie called Friends With Benefits. He did a movie that was very similar called No Strings Attached. We lived our movies out,” she recalled. “We were just like, let’s just hook up. Let’s have fun. We’re both single. We both trust each other. Everything’s great.”
Of course, their casual hookup evolved into something a little more complicated, and Kunis developed real feelings for her old co-star.
"We were both [...] seeing other people, and so the second that I started caring that he was seeing somebody else, then I was like, I all of a sudden had a sense that I got punched in the gut. 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.'"
She said she told him how she felt and that she was going to walk away from the situation, left his house, and “bawled” the whole way home. However, that wasn’t the end of it…
She continued, "The next day, at seven, eight in the morning, he just showed up at my house. 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.'"
And the rest is history.
Kunis also explained that while she’s sometimes sad she lost “20 years” of potential time with Kutcher, everything happened exactly how it was supposed to. “We would have never been together if we didn’t both go through what we went through in order to be the people that we were when we reconnected.”
We need an Ashton and Mila doc, and we need it soon (or at the very least, an original Lifetime movie). Your move, Hollywood.
