Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis gave Dax Shepard & Kristen Bell a unique gift

First of all, I’m not trying to be clickbaity in the title, although I’m not above that. If I wrote out that the gift was “a shower curtain with their giant faces on it,” it wouldn’t fit in our title format of two lines. We keep them short so the layout is consistent on computers. Also I am covering this because I wanted to say that Ashton Kutcher is one of two celebrities I know of to have blocked me on Twitter. The other one is Jessica Alba. I don’t comment on celebrities’ tweets so they must not have liked it when we covered the stupid things they said. Anyway this story is funny and cute and I wanted to talk about it. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis had a giant photo of themselves put on a shower curtain and they gave this as a gift to Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell. The image is above and here’s what Dax wrote:

daxshepardWhat a generous Christmas gift from the Kunis-Kutcher family. A beautiful shower curtain for the attic(t) bathroom!

I don’t listen to Dax Shepard’s podcast but I should because I could surely get a bunch of stories out of it. I think he records it in the attic bathroom he mentioned where there’s an inlaw suite, right? This shower curtain will be a great conversation piece there. E! reminds us that Dax is starring on The Ranch with Ashton on Netflix, which is helpful because no one watches that. Dax also worked on Punk’d with Ashton back in the day.

Also, how cute a gift is this? It’s stupid, it’s funny and it’s perfect for rich people who don’t need anything. My favorite dumb celebrity gift/prank story is about Robert Redford and Paul Newman. I covered this ten years ago and I still think about it occasionally. These two sent a wrecked Porsche to each other. Redford sent the trashed Porsche to Newman for his 50th birthday. Newman had it compacted and sent it back! Then Redford hired a local sculptor to make it into garden art and sent it back to Newman. They never even talked about it!

Oh and remember how some woman came forward last week claiming to have hooked up with Dax 9 years ago, when he was dating his now wife, Kristen Bell? Dax wrote that it was 13 years ago and pointed out that the woman has sold stories about her relationships with other random celebrities including Kid Rock and Matthew Perry. Well Kristen hasn’t responded, but she did record a video thanking Dax for giving her a cordless Dyson vacuum. That was in her IG stories but I missed it. She posted a bunch of stuff from their holiday party though, including a weird table she had custom made last year for a white elephant gift. It had udders on it. The person who ended up with it had it adapted with kegs so that the beer came out of the udders! That’s genius. Sometimes I do get jealous of celebrities.

    Dax wasn’t just on one episode of Punk’d he was an actor doing the pranking.

  3. Louise Anne says:

    That is hilarious that Ashton Kutcher has blocked you… I mean, talk about thin skinned

    • Esmom says:

      I know, right? I wouldn’t have guessed that about him. At least CB knows he’s reading her stuff!

  4. SM says:

    Ashton and Alba blocked you? Oh so petty, especially for somone who became famous by doing a very public pranks on people. Also, Punk’d is still on? That is news to me.

  5. AnnaKist says:

    Those two twits blocked you? You must be gutted… My gag gift to my daughter this year is a box and 6 pocket-packs of facial tissues, emblazoned with the colours and logo of her favourite football team. We tease her, because we hate football, and they are almost always the wooden-spooners. I’d love to hear about everyone’s good gag gifts. Let’s go!

      @Annakist, Re: Gag gifts. So, now over a decade ago, my brother LOVED “Napoleon Dynamite.” Back then Target had a bunch of the movie product (pens, paper, magnets, etc.) in their dollar section, so we bought like $20 worth, with a couple duplicate pieces (as we thought that would be funny, & a couple of “40-year Year Old Virgin” items thrown in, like we were confused between the 2 movies). EVERY Christmas since then (and a few birthdays) we pick a “Napoleon Dynamite” item out of the box to throw in with his regular Xmas present. I also wrap his gift in Justin Beiber Xmas-themed wrapping paper (that I got 90% off years ago) with silly thought bubbles written on it. Anyway, after all these years, we are finally getting to the bottom of the “Napoleon Dynamite” gag gift pile — just a few more years to go! 😉

    How silly is it that Alba has blocked you! I actually use her Honest diapers for my 9mo baby; I tried most brands and that one fits best so I grudgingly shell out for the monthly box.

    In the most recent shipment, along with the diapers and wipes, she included an issue of Parents magazine where she was on the cover with her 3 kids. And a card in the box explaining that she wanted all the Honest moms to enjoy a free issue. The pictures of her were so twee and over the top–making exaggerated faces and that sort of thing.

    Anyhow, I think it’s funny that she cares so much she actually blocked you on Twitter.

    Speaking of celebrities getting random/ unnecessary things, I recently saw a video of Dennis Rodman giving Post Malone a gift card to Olive Garden. He had it on his shoe “because otherwise he would lose it.” It was so random, but it was actually kind of endearing because PM was so grateful. Lol

    I find Dax a bit irritating at times, but I do enjoy the interview parts of his podcast.
    That shower curtain is hilariously weird.
    Dyson cord vacs are the BEST.

  9. Milkweed says:

    In Dax’s podcast with Mila, she used that toilet and there was no door or curtain. Both she and Kristen teased him that he needed to be more thoughtful to his guests.

    • Moco says:

      Yep. The backstory is that the bathroom has no door and Mila is the only guest that just went ahead and used the bathroom without having everyone leave the attic for privacy first.
      It really is a great podcast.

  10. Lynne says:

    There was a show, iconoclasts I think was the title where Newman and Redford talked about it. Fantastic episode about these two men and I recommend viewing it.
    And it was an epic back and forth prank.
