It wasn't love at first sight for Mila Kunis and her husband Ashton Kutcher. The two met as co-stars on the hit Fox sitcom "That '70s Show" where they played onscreen boyfriend and girlfriend.But in real life, their five-year age difference prevented any actual romance from happening."I'm 14, he's 19," Mila told Howard of their first season together and how they eventually had to kiss on camera.On Wednesday's Stern Show it was Ashton Kutcher's turn to tell Howard how he met his now-wife Mila Kunis more than two decades ago and how the couple turned a friendship into a marriage.Back in July 2016, Mila told Howard she never found Ashton attractive while playing his girlfriend on their TV series "That '70s Show." But on Wednesday Ashton revealed she wasn't telling the truth."She's lying," Ashton said with a laugh. '" Ashton said of having to lock lips with his underage co-star.Ashton is sticking to sitcoms, now starring in his Netflix comedy "The Ranch." The series was Ashton's answer to appealing to his fellow Midwesterners (he grew up in Iowa), a part of the country he says isn't represented nearly enough on TV."There really wasn't anything that was servicing the middle of America," he told Howard.Growing up, Ashton was a big fan of the series "Roseanne" and its blue-collar characters. "It made me feel like my family wasn't alone in our struggles."Now, he hopes his own series can achieve the same thing for those watching at home. Further details on whether Kunis has taken additional steps to confirm she would attend the ball remained unclear.
It was something that didn't have anything to do with anybody else."Kunis, who's now expecting her second child with Kutcher, decided she couldn't have both movies and babies at once: "I did choose [with my first pregnancy]. If it were up to [Ashton], we would have had kids much sooner. I was like, 'Let me finish this last thing, , and we're a go.
I was so happy saying no that I knew it was the right decision." Kunis understood that rejecting so many offers could mean the end of her film career (though it didn't: "I got—knock on wood—very lucky," she says). And I was like, 'Whatever will happen will happen.' As an actor, you travel so much. I ultimately started my production company, so I have a 9-to-5.
The secret to Mila Kunis' relationship with Ashton Kutcher appears to be two-fold: Keep it private and casual. And she got such a shock (that) I'd made reservations at our favorite lunch place.
I'm going to take a solid break from acting.' And let me tell you, when I would get a call with an offer, I wouldn't even flinch.
I was like, 'No, I'm pregnant.' 'No, I have a baby.' I wasn't ready to go back. And unless you and your partner are happy, that kid's never going to be happy.
