Mila Kunis: Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher ‘had, like, a normal, real relationship’

Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore

Ashton Kutcher was 27 years old when he married Demi Moore in September 2005. They managed to hang in the marriage until 2011, when they split up after the tabloids were full of multiple reports about Ashton’s sexual exploits with other women. Demi Moore was 43 when they married. Now that we’re so many years removed from it, doesn’t that age difference seem almost quaint? But my God, it was so scandalous and noteworthy and gossipworthy back then. You would have thought that Ashton was the first 20-something dude to ever be attracted to an older woman, or to marry an older woman.

In any case, Demi and Ashton were done long before Ashton and Mila got together. Of course, Mila and Ashton have known each other for all of their adult lives, because they worked together on The ‘70s Show. So Mila knew Ashton as a coworker/friend when he was with Demi. And Mila wants you to know that… Ashton and Demi’s marriage was real. Okay?

Mila Kunis is giving insight into her husband Ashton Kutcher’s previous marriage to Demi Moore. The Spy Who Dumped Me actress, 34, opened up about Kutcher’s eight-year marriage to Moore, 55, on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast.

“They had, like, a normal, real relationship,” Kunis said. “They had three kids they were raising. It was, like, a normal life. He was younger but he loved those kids,” she added, referring to Moore’s daughters with actor Bruce Willis. Kutcher, 40, still has a relationship with Moore’s kids, Kunis also confirmed.

Of her own relationship with her husband of three years, Kunis said their characters might have been together on That ‘70s Show but that there were “no feelings whatsoever” between them during that time.

“It’s the weirdest story that nobody believes but it’s the God’s honest truth,” she said. “You know, he and I talk about it and we’re like, ‘God.’ Had we connected [in the past] would we have connected? No,” she continued. “The people that we were back then would never be together. But it’s just such a bummer that we missed out on 20 years together. I look back and I think, ‘We could have spent 20 years together.’ We would have never been together if we didn’t both go what we went through in order to be the people that we were when we met.”

Kunis recalled seeing Kutcher at an awards show where he caught her eye years after they had worked together.

“I was looking around, and there was a really beautiful man from the back,” she said on the podcast. “I was literally like, ‘Oh, he’s kinda hot.’ … And then he turned around, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, it’s Kutch.’ I thought it was the weirdest thing that I was checking this guy out, and it was someone that I had known forever.”

What she says about getting with Ashton at the right time, I felt her on that one. There are guys who were awful at 18, but are wonderful marriage-material-types at 33. Ashton needed the Demi Moore marriage to understand what he wanted and didn’t want from his next marriage, and my guess is that Ashton and Mila are solid as a rock because they were both in long-term relationships before their friendship turned into what it is now.

As for what Mila says about Ashton and Demi’s marriage… well, I mean, sure? I think they had a real marriage/relationship too. At least, it was a real relationship for a while. When it started falling apart, I think they were just living separate lives and it wasn’t much of any kind of relationship.

    Eh – I think Mila and Ashton may have a strong marriage right now but I can’t really see them lasting until their old and grey – who knows, may be I’ll be wrong.

  2. Lucy says:

    If it was Ashton saying this, I’d probably call bs. Coming from Mila, I believe her. She sounds very respectful of Demi and her family.

  3. Hotsauceinmybag says:

    I really like them together. And Kutcher has aged like a fine wine.

  4. Faithmobile says:

    I think they will last. Speaking from experience, when you marry in your 30s, you have a much clearer idea of who you are and what you want in life.

  5. Tanesha86 says:

    Am I the only one who thinks she’s too good for him? Idk maybe in still salty about all the cheating he was guilty of in the past.

  6. RspbryChelly says:

    Some say she’s an upgrade, others say he’s a downgrade but I think somehow they balance each other out very well. Also, I mean yeah he cheated on Demi which is a pretty shitty move for anyone but Mila (although not married at the time) admitted to her own shitty ways in her younger years w the Culkin so she was likely able to relate in a nonjudgmental way w Ashton’s indiscretion(s) back then. Of course this is just me but I’m sure they learned and grew & understood a lot of things from those times that as she stated, ended up bringing them together…will it last? Idk. But they’re definitely in different places now than they were in those days & they’re good for each other

  7. electra says:

    Why is this supposed to be “she wants you to know” though. She commented in a mature and considerate manner. Generally they are a pretty decent couple, doesn’t matter if they last or not. Who knows.

  8. Yes Doubtful says:

    I’m cringing at the fact that Mila is giving her opinion about her husband’s previous marriage publicly.

    I have found it strange that Mila and Ashton had a TV relationship, but didn’t hook up until years later. I can’t imagine going from zero attraction/chemistry, to being married with kids.
