When Kutcher and Kunis first met on "That '70s Show," there's a little twist to the story. He was 20 years old, but she was only 14 at the time. To audition for her role, she told the show's creators that she was 18 years old. She had to bend the truth a bit to get the chance to be on the show.

He also mentioned that he was also nervous during that kiss.
Reuniting After That '70s Show

She said she was scanning the room, and her eyes landed on a really good-looking guy from behind. She thought to herself, "Oh, he's kinda hot."
But then, when he turned around, Kunis had a major surprise because it was Ashton Kutcher, her longtime friend from the show. She found it quite amusing that she was unknowingly checking out her old pal. It shows that sometimes, even when you've known someone for a long time, they can still surprise you and make your heartbeat.
Two Versions Of The Love Story
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have a unique and funny story about how their love began back in January 2012. The actor recalled that he was still a smoker at the time, and she had quit smoking.

This is how it all started as per him.

Mila shared her side of the story, and it added a fun twist to their love story. She revealed that Ashton was trying to set her up on a blind date with one of his friends, as reported in Insider. So he invited her over to introduce her to his pal, but as fate would have it, things didn't go as planned as that pal never showed up, and the blind date idea didn't work out. Sometimes, the best relationships come from unexpected moments, like in this case.
Previously Dated Home Alone's Macaulay Culkin
Before her relationship with Kutcher, Mila Kunis had a long-term relationship with Macaulay Culkin, the famous child actor from "Home Alone." They were a couple for eight years, from 2002 to early 2011. It was quite a significant period, and during those years, they shared a lot of experiences and moments.
Mila was 27 years old, and Macaulay was 30 at the time they first met. The "Home Alone" actor loved "Family Guy," the show that Kutcher's wife was part of as she is the voice of Meg Griffin. His love for the show played a special role in sparking their romance.
Things Ended With Culkin In A Bad Way
Mila went through a really tough time when her relationship with Macaulay Culkin came to an end in early 2011. It wasn't a smooth breakup, and the actress later expressed that she wasn't pleased with how she handled it. While she didn't reveal the specific reasons behind the breakup, she openly admitted that it was a pretty terrible experience for her.
In her words, Kunis said, "I had a horrible breakup. I had a horrible, horrible, horrible breakup. I messed up. I was an a**hole in my 20s, and I’ll be the first to admit it. And that’s kind of something that took me a long time to come out and be like, ‘Yeah, you know what? I was a d***,’ and accept it. And I own it now." It takes a lot of courage to reflect on one's past and acknowledge mistakes, and her honesty about her past behavior shows her growth and maturity.
Entangled In A Controversy Surrounding Danny Masterson
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have recently found themselves in a controversial situation related to their former "That '70s Show" co-star, Danny Masterson. The controversy centers around them writing character letters in support of Danny, who has been convicted of rape. Their decision to support him has drawn a lot of backlash and criticism from the public for the right reason.
Danny Masterson, the actor known for his role on "That '70s Show," has been sentenced to 30 years to life in prison for two rape convictions. The sentencing comes after a trial where three brave women testified that he had sexually assaulted them at his Hollywood home between 2001 and 2003. He was found guilty of rape against two of these accusers, which is a significant and just outcome for the survivors.
Kutcher and Kunis have decided to step down from the board of the anti-child sexual abuse charity that her husband had founded, as mentioned in an article from The Guardian. Their decision comes amid intense criticism.
