Things You Might Not Know About Ashton Kutcher And Mila Kunis’ RelationshipPublished on June 22, 2016. Updated June 24, 2020
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are super private when it comes to their relationship, but they have let a few things slip about how they went from being former co-stars to one of Hollywood’s hottest couples. Here are 11 things you didn’t know about the former on-screen couple’s hot real life romance:
11. First Kiss
Mila’s first kiss was with Ashton Kutcher on That ‘70s Show. “I was like, ‘Oh, he’s so cute, it’s the Calvin Klein model!’” she told People in 2001. “Then I was like, ‘I have to kiss him?’ I was so nervous and uncomfortable. I had the biggest crush on him.” Ashton saw the same situation differently. “I’m the first guy she kissed? Oh my god, I had no idea!” he also said in 2001. “I’m so glad I didn’t know that or it would’ve been too much pressure. I was so nervous. She acted so cool. She seemed as if she’d done it a thousand times. I was the one with the butterflies in my stomach. I mean, here’s this little girl and I have to kiss her. It was nerve-racking.”
10. When They Were Co-Stars
Back when they were on That ‘70s Show together, Ashton used to help the Black Swan actress with her science homework.
9. Meeting Again
Kunis and Kutcher got back in touch in 2012 when they saw each other at a party. According to Kunis, she was immediately attracted to him. That night, he invited her to a party where he planned to set her up with a friend, but they ended up spending the night together instead.
8. Becoming More Than Friends
Initially their relationship began as a friends with benefits situation. He had just gotten out of his marriage with Demi and Mila had just broken up with Macauley Culkin, and they both wanted to be single for a while and enjoy themselves. However, after three months of that (and hooking up with other people at the same time), she realized that she wanted to be exclusive. “We’d literally attempt to go see other people, and then that night we’d be like, ‘Hey! What are you up to? Wanna come over?'” she told Howard Stern. “It ended up going from just having fun to genuinely wanting… When I realized I was nervous was when I spoke to him. I was like, ‘I don’t like this anymore.'”
7. Ashton Was Crushing on Mila for Years
Kutcher reportedly had a crush on Kunis that dated back from when they used to work together. “He was so in love with her for a while when they worked together,” a source told People. “He thought she was a goddess, was always talking about how beautiful she is. But she was with Macaulay [Culkin] for a lot of that time and also just generally gave off a not interested vibe.”
6. Not Quite Single
When they first got together, Ashton was still married to Demi Moore. Six months into his relationship with Mila, he finally filed for divorced and a year after that they finally reached a settlement.
5. Getting Her Dad’s Blessing
In February 2014, a source revealed that Ashton and Mila were engaged. He reportedly asked for her father’s blessing Christmas 2013 before he popped the question.
Weeks after it was revealed that the happy couple were engaged, it was also reported that they were expecting their first child together. In October 2014, they welcomed their daughter, Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher. In November 2016, they welcomed a son, Dimitri Portwood Kutcher.
3. Secret Wedding
In March 2015, Mila let it slip on James Corden’s show that she and Ashton were probably already married and in 2016 Ashton confirmed to Ellen Degeneres that he and Mila had gotten married on the fourth of July weekend in 2015, but they had made sure to throw the media off. “We really didn’t want helicopters at our wedding, and it’s a legitimate concern, so I was posting things on social media that we we’re in different locations,” he said.
2. Love of Her Life
Before her relationship with Kutcher, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall actress never wanted to get married, but being with him changed her mind. “I never wanted to get married. From the age of 12, I prepared my parents for no marriage,” she told W magazine “Then things changed – I found the love of my life. Now my theory on weddings is: Don’t invite anyone. Do it privately and secretly. My parents are okay with that. They’re just excited that I said yes.”
1. Movie Star Crush
Mila also told W magazine that Ashton was her big movie star crush. “We all get movie star crushes,” she said. “I’m marrying mine.”
