Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Decided to Film a Commercial Together Because Their Kids Wouldn't Be There
It's been nearly 15 years since Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher appeared together on That '70s Show, but they're about to make another television appearance together in the form of a Cheetos Super Bowl commercial. And the couple booked the ad for a very hilarious and relatable reason: they wanted two days of "freedom" away from their kids, 6-year-old Wyatt and 4-year-old Dimitri.
"It's so silly! Ashton and I, we never work together," Mila told ET. "I mean, I know we worked together before . . . And in the midst of quarantine, they sent us this ad to do and every time I've ever been offered a Super Bowl ad it's always a female having to be scantily clad. And this one comes around, I started laughing so hard and Ashton was like, 'This is kind of funny.' And I was like, 'We should do it!'"
Mila went on to mention the added bonus of saying yes. "Also it was quarantine and we were stuck with our children for nine, 12, months at this moment, and I was like, 'Two days, baby! Two days off.' Literally we were like, 'Yeah, OK, let's do it.' And so we did it," she said. "And I hate saying it but we were like, 'Freedom!' . . . It was amazing!"
She added: "[I've] never been so excited to wake up at five in the morning to be like, 'I'm going to work!' And I literally skipped out of the house. My kids were like, 'You're abandoning us!' And I was like, 'Relax.'"
Despite the brief joy over getting a small break from their little ones, Mila said she loves her children very much and that being away from the kids was actually tough.
"Our whole family is already co-dependent, so this pandemic just feeds into our entire co-dependency," she said. "And my husband and I were super co-dependent for like eight years and in this pandemic our kids are like, 'Where are you going?' And I was like, 'The bathroom.' We haven't left each other. We're in the house. Yeah, it was really weird for them. They forgot that we have to go out of the house."
