Mila Kunis & Macauley Culkin officially split up


Last Thursday, I wrote about a seemingly random report from In Touch Weekly in which “sources” claimed that Mila Kunis and Macaulay Culkin had split up after six years together. When I happened to mention that while I liked them together as a couple, I genuinely thought Mila could do better… well, many of you got upset with me. So, I’m sorry about that. I apologize for suggesting that Mila, riding a career high that will likely see her getting an Oscar nomination, is in the midst of trading up. However, Page Six confirms the report than Mila and Mac did break up. They even got a confirmation from her rep:

Did Mila Kunis’ breakout role in “Black Swan” contribute to a breakup for the actress, who’s flirting with movie stardom? Kunis’ rep confirms that she and one-time child star Macaulay Culkin have gone their separate ways.

“The split was amicable, and they remain close friends,” her rep said. Kunis started dating Culkin seven years ago, when she starred as the snobby “Jackie” character in “That ’70s Show.”

A source said the couple split some time ago but has kept it low-key while Kunis promotes the movie.

To her credit, it doesn’t look like Mila had some jumpoff waiting in the wings, you know? It sounds like Mila and Mac just grew apart, and that they likely split up months ago and we’re just hearing about it now.

Your move, Natalie Portman.

    sads 🙁

    Liked them (and how low-key they were) together.

  2. whitedaisy says:

    Did she………Oh no. Not Mila.
    What did she do to her upper lip?

  3. higgity says:

    I just wrote in that other post LOL @ that Anon who said “they’re still together, I KNOW them!!!”

  4. Eve says:

    Maybe she’s not trading up but I think the break-up does have something to do with her recent achieved success.

  5. Brit says:

    That is the worst picture of McCauley Culkin EVER!

  6. nycmom10024 says:

    She was good in Black Swan, Barbara Hershey was fabulous in Black Swan, Vincent Cassel was interesting. But I wanted to alternately slap, shake, wish the inevitable ending would come more quickly for Natalie Portmans character.

    Black Swan = The Red Shoes meets the Red Shoe Diaries meets some odd low budget horror film. Total camp. If there wasn’t so much Oscar buzz (unworthy imo) I may have enjoyed it for its total over the top campiness.

    Mila Kunis is beautiful and talented I wish her happiness.

  7. mln76 says:

    Eh it’s sad but I don’t think Mac is up to dealing with the career track she is on. He had a messed up childhood and needs a quiet life being in quirky films on occasion.

  8. tango says:

    Well I wish them both the best of luck. They certainly handled their break up with class and privacy. If only other stars could do the same.

  9. Bailey says:

    sad, all these break ups.

  10. malachais says:

    I could see her trading up, there are very very few actresses that aren’t using relationships to maintain relevance in Hollywood.

    They may have just grown apart though, but the timing is a bit suspicious.

  11. crab says:

    I loved her in “The Book of Eli”! What a great movie that was!

  12. jen says:

    He’s like so many others, was such a cute kid and looks downright creepy now. Maybe if he gained some weight?

  13. apsutter says:

    This is super sad for both of them…its like the death of her first love. She matured into a woman with him and they always seemed like a very sweet loving couple. I hope that she keeps her head grounded and her feet on the ground and stays normal and sweet……unlike natalie portman

  14. the original bellaluna says:

    @ crab – I’ve been trying to watch The Book of Eli – LOVE the message, but having a hard time with the gore.

  15. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Well, it is nice to see a couple break up and not throw crap at each other for once in the tabloids.

    I wish them both well.

  16. carrie says:

    she “did” her lips and i remember rumors about her & timberlake ‘s flirt during their movie

  17. Jacq says:

    Mila did smack down the Timberlake rumors. Hasn’t Portman made all of her moves; what, with a new engagement and a baby on the way??

  18. Nina says:

    @Jacq: Natalie’s next move could be the announcement of TWINS! Dun-dun-DUN!!!

  19. Marjalane says:

    I wonder if Justin Timberlake will be all over her on the press for that movie they made…I’d love to see Jessica Biel kicked to the curb.

  20. Alejandro says:

    She seems likable enough but she doesn’t deserve an Oscar nod, anybody could have played her part. Also I mentioned this in the other topic but it wouldn’t surprise me if she came out with JT in a couple of months considering past rumors.

  21. Iggles says:

    Noooo! I really wanted to believe the Anon :'(

  22. Kevin says:

    When she dumped him I wonder did he make that Home Alone surprised look? Hands on the side of his face, mouth and eyes wide open, eyebrows highly arched. The perfect “O” face. {:-O )

  23. fanny says:

    Sorry to hear this. I hope he gets a big break in the industry so that his talent can also thrive!

  24. munchies says:

    indeed 2010 was the year of break ups and engagement. looks like 2011 year of hook ups and babies.

  25. Dana M says:

    I love her!! She is not like other celebs. She seems very down to earth. Best wishes to her. Breaking up with your first love is hard.

  26. Original Gracie says:

    I seriously think that Mila Kunis is one of the most gorgeous women on the planet.

  27. kiko says:

    natalie portman announces that she is expecting twins in 3…2…

  28. C-Love says:

    Jesus, could you have picked a worse picture of MC? Second, assuming that, after eight years together, they broke up because she wants to “trade up” is cynical and shitty, considering there’s no indication of that. It’s not like either of these two have shown any signs of douchiness or famewhore-ism. Third, MK can do way better than cheeseball Timberlake. I used to like him, but after all the Olivia Munn crap and the supposed Oscar-chasing he now officially nauseates me. So give her some credit!!

  29. Mizz Tickles says:

    I wonder if Macaulay can grow a beard and what his ancestry is?

  30. Vi says:

    i doubt if you’re with someone for 8 years you leave them just to trade up, it wouldn’t be human! but that doesn’t mean that her career taking off doesn’t have something to do with the breakup.

  31. The Bobster says:

    It would be hard for her to trade down.

  32. Solveig says:

    Damn, he’s creepy!

  33. samihami says:

    Well, they were together for a long time, but they are also both quite young. It seems normal to me that they would break up and move on with their lives. No law says they can’t get back together sometime in the future if that’s what’s right for them. I just don’t see a bad guy in this break up.

  34. lucy2 says:

    I doubt it’s anything more than two people moving on in different directions. Break ups happen, it doesn’t always have to be tabloid drama.

    I just watched a lengthy interview with her, and she is really likable and interesting, plus gorgeous. She seems very down to earth and low key. I like seeing someone like that have so much success.

  35. Riley says:

    I bet she starts dating Ryan Reynolds. She kind of strikes me as his type.

  36. sasha says:

    It’s time they broke up…my god they’ve been together since they were kids…It’s not about trading up…it’s about time…looks wise they were very mismatched. Mila needs a man not a little boy like culkin. I’d like to see her with Seth MacFarlane. sethmilaochka

  37. normades says:

    Love her. I’d like to see her with Joseph Gordon Levitt.
    Timberlake should date Boobs Lively.

  38. Missfit says:

    Why could she do better? Why must Culkin have to be like every other Hollywood douche to be on her standards, level or whatever? Most likely he has his own money, doesn’t mooch off of her, she has her own money and they were just fine together. Why would he have to be Oscar worthy to make everyone feel better who she’s dating? That’s very stereo typical and discriminating in a way. Why should poor people get treated different from the ones whom are rich? Maybe he’s not all super cute or Brad Pitt or whatever the thing is now…maybe he is a really nice down to earth guy himself. :/ That’s probably exactly what she needs, regardless if it’s him or someone else…I just really hope she doesn’t go for some Hollywood douche, that’s what. I hope she doesn’t go for Justin. She may be humble and down to earth now…but I also really hope that she doesn’t change, like most of those bitches in the industry…where they eventually let fame get to their head and they become stuck up bitches…but yet they call it “growing up.”

  39. Emily says:

    She totally dumped him to be with me.

  40. Stubbylove says:

    Good one @Sasha! Mila & Seth – that would be one gorgeous, funny, talented kid! Seth likes the young poo-tang anyway. Mila might need to date just a really hot, smart investor-type guy. Someone who’s not in spotlight I think would be good for her. Not Culkin – he may be a nice guy but she’s outgrown that one.

  41. Martin says:

    one of the top 10 “WTF?” couples of all time!

  42. Michael says:

    People are so cynical. I guess i can understand why. But I’m a huge fan of both, and you could tell she really loved him i just think they’re lifestyles are too different now.

  43. Camille says:

    They are young and the relationship probably just ran its course.

    Now Alex Skarsgard needs to break up with his girlfriend. Joseph GL would be perfect for her too.

  44. Matt says:

    Funny how everyone was getting worked up when this was first reported!

    Kaiser, you can put your smug face back on!

  45. Justme says:

    @Original Bellaluna-
    I know how you feel, but wait until you see the end. I still get goosebumps when I think about it. I went and saw it in theatre and it was sooooooooo worth it!

  46. I Choose Me says:

    This gives me the sads. 🙁
    Please don’t let her go the PR relationship route. Just say no to Timber-douche Mila!

  47. khaveman says:

    Sad. I think he seems like a nice guy — and he was always very white and pasty, even as a child, remember? haha. I’d like to see him act again.

  48. Lway says:

    He seriously needs some SUN!

  49. beth says:

    i wonder what it’s like to wake up every morning and see yourself as Mila Kunis in the mirror. and then walk out the door with no makeup on, and have everyone who knows you fall in love with you all over again because not just that you’re beautiful, you actually are a nice girl with no pretensions at all.
    macaulay is really sweet – look, theyve been together so long, so young, and no scandal, whatsoever, which makes me think he must’ve been a darn good boyfriend… he needs some sun, that’s all.

  50. sasha says:

    give it up….let’s hope it’s over. culkin hasn’t had a job in about 15 years. Would you want to be with a man that’s so unambitious? Sorry he might be a nice guy but he’s a loser as far as I’m concerned and I’m still hoping for sethmilaochka..macfarlane and kunis….absolutely adorable couple they’d make. They’re only 10 years apart anymore than that is bad news. She’s 27 and he’s 37…

  51. sasha says:

    He looks like an albino rabbit.

  52. DDD Cups of Justice says:

    I don’t think the timing is “suspect”. It says that they broke up months ago and that it is now only coming out. Why now? Because this is the highest profile gig Mila has had yet so that’s when all the rags and reporters go digging for dirt on her. Otherwise, she probably wasn’t really on their radar. I don’t think she traded up for anything, she doesn’t seem like that. Not that I know these people…

  53. thegorilla says:

    aww that makes me sad, i like them both and think they’re cute together, i’ve been with my boyfriend for 8 years and i can’t imagine breaking up after such a long relationship, it would be devastating.
