Mila Kunis: Fling with Ashton Kutcher made me ‘neurotic’
MILA KUNIS has admitted she lost friends and became ‘neurotic’ while trying to conceal her romance with Ashton Kutcher. Stepping into the confession box, the star said she kept her fling with her now husband secret after she was badly burned by a previous high-profile romance with former child star Macaulay Culkin.
The Friends With Benefits actress revealed Kutcher tried to set her up on a blind date before they got together — but when the chap failed to turn up the celebrity pair hooked up.
‘We were crazy neurotic about keeping it a secret, probably to a massive fault where we alienated so many friends,’ said the actress, 34.
They knew each other having starred in That ’70s Show as teenagers, and Kunis said she was determined not to let Kutcher get away from her for a second time.
‘I’ll tell you this, while I was single I never spent the night at another guy’s house. This was the first time I spent the night at the guy’s house,’ she said. Kutcher, 40, was accused of cheating during a very public break-up with ex-wife Demi Moore, 55, and the pair divorced in 2013.
Shortly afterwards, he hooked with Kunis, and the couple now have two children — daughter Wyatt, three, and one-year-old son Dimitri.
When they started dating, Kunis was bouncing back from her own very ugly break-up with Home Alone star Culkin, 37. The pair split in 2010 after eight years together.
Taking the blame for that relationship ending, the Bad Moms star told the Armchair Expert With Dax Shepard podcast: ‘I had a horrible, horrible break-up. No, I f***ed up. I was an a**hole in my 20s and I’ll be the first to admit it.
‘And that’s something that took me a long time to come out and be like, “Yeah, you know what, I was a d***,” and accept and own it.’ She went on: ‘It’s f***ed up what I did and it’s f***ed up how I did it. When I got to be single I said, “I need to figure myself out. I need to know why I did what I did and, like, regroup myself as a human being”.’
