Mila Kunis & Ashton leave the bathroom door open when they do #2

Mila Kunis has a new Netflix project coming out on Friday called Luckiest Girl Alive. It’s based on a book I haven’t read but I was interested in the film based on the trailer. It’s a girl-with-a-mysterious-past story but if I’m reading the trailer right, it looks like Mila’s character can’t fill in all the blanks. Or she can and is just another sociopath. Whatever’s going on, I’m interested enough to check it out. And given she has an interesting Netflix project based on a best-selling mystery novel, you would think Mila would have a bunch of fascinating things to talk about for her promotional rounds. But no, she’s opting to talk about pooping with the door open. *sigh* Mila said that she and husband Ashton Kutcher don’t close doors in their cavernous home, including bathroom doors. And even though she never wanted to be a person who went to the bathroom with the door open, that’s who she’s become. The culprits, according to Mila, are her two kids, Wyatt, seven, and Dimitri, five, because if a door is shut, they knock on it.

If you want an inside look at Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s home life, the door is wide open—literally.

Mila revealed that in her household, there are no closed doors no matter the room.

“That includes the bathroom,” she exclusively told E! News’ Francesca Amiker in a recent interview. “It’s just one of those where, for better or for worse, as a family and the kids have all kind of embodied bodily function as a very standard norm.”

Now, if this comes as a shock to you, just know it was once a surprise to Mila, too. She noted, “I’d never thought that I would be the person that was able to go to the bathroom with the door open.”

So, what changed things? Well, the Black Swan actress—who shares 7-year-old daughter Wyatt and 5-year-old son Dimitri with Ashton—explained that the door being open was inevitable because her family was knocking and asking to come in. She added, “I was like, ‘Oh, forget it. Just keep the door open.'”

To be fair, this came up when Francesca Amiker from E! asked Mila, “what is the one thing you do that you said you would never do?” So it wasn’t quite as random a topic as the excerpt makes it seem. But I know in the few times this particularly topic has ever come up (and honestly, I don’t know why it ever comes up) people have very strong feelings about whether couples should keep the bathroom door open or not. For all the answers Mila could have offered to that question, I wonder if she realized she was entering another not bathing debate territory. (My guess: yes)

As I said, it’s a personal preference thing. If you are a Door Open person, none of this caused you to bat an eye. I’m a door shut person, I don’t care who’s knocking. I bent this rule when my kids were first-walking toddlers, but only if I was alone in the house with them. However, in my opening, I blamed the Kutcher kids for knocking, but Mila said ‘family’, didn’t she? I hope her husband isn’t banging on the door needing her time while she’s in the loo. Again, if Open Door is your thing, fine, but Mila suggested this policy change is a result of people pounding on a door during a time she wanted privacy. With people the ages of five, seven and 44, Mila should be working on their boundaries. Those kids are school age and probably should be learning that they don’t get immediate access to people like that anymore. And Ashton definitely should be learning that.

    They don’t shower, they poop to each other’s faces. What’s the point of sharing their scatological family dynamics? They’re barely actors and art contributors anymore. They should let themselves sink into oblivion… in silence, please.

    • Barbie1 says:

      Why indeed. I don’t need to hear anything more about them ever. These comments will embarrass their poor children for life. Their daughter is such a cutie.

  2. Chaine says:

    I get that if you have toddlers or preschoolers but if your kid is seven you should get them to a point of understanding mom needs some alone time, even if it’s just to take a dump.

    • Normades says:

      Yea, my daughter would freak when I went to the bathroom when she was 2 but FFS I still closed the door. These are not small children anymore – learn some boundaries!

      In a way their TMIs are like pooping with the door open (no one needs to hear it!).

  3. Lightpurple says:

    So, no doors closed? Not ever? Not even during sex?

  4. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I’ve raised three boys. Nobody’s ever seen me take a sh>t.

  5. HeyKay says:

    WayTMI. Nobody needs to know this, and I’m sorry I clicked on this.
    I might stay offline for the rest of the day. Ugh.

  6. María says:

    Why, just why?

  7. Debbie says:

    Dear God, are these people back to over-sharing again?! Of course, you know what’s coming next, some other celebrity will feel the need to corroborate this curious custom, or to top them. Can’t these people get it through their minds that we all do certain things in our lives, for convenience or whatever, but we don’t need to tell everyone about what we do in the privacy of our own homes. Geez.

  8. Coco says:

    I guess this is the only why they know how to get attention now a days.

  9. ML says:

    Ew yuck

  10. Kaye says:

    She doesn’t look like herself. A lot of it is her eyebrows, but I think she’s had cheekbone inplants or fat sucked out of her face or whatever it is they do. She just looks harsh now.

    • Kirsten says:

      In the stadium photo, I think it’s just bad lighting from a really close-up/bright flash.

      • Sandy says:

        I think the photos from the other premier post I would have considered it make up and lighting but now I think not so much.

    • Marion says:

      My thoughts exactely! Without my glasses I first thought it was Kate’s 40th brithday painting…
      She did something to her eyes, she shoudn’t have because it was *her* thing.
      Now she’s just a plain white girl sharing way too much…

  11. Lola Cee says:

    My rule was that unless the house was on fire or someone was choking, you don’t knock on the closed bathroom door.

  12. AmyB says:

    WHY do celebrities insist on sharing this crap (no pun intended!)???

    I don’t know one person that wants to hear/know about this! 🙄

  13. MsIam says:

    I hope this doesn’t turn into a debate like the shower/ no shower thing did last year or whenever that was. We really, really do not need to know this info.

  14. Christine says:

    Why don’t celebrities ever just make up something?! Surely there is something less gross in her life that she’d never thought she’d do other than pooping with the door open.

  15. Izzy says:

    Why do so many celebrities feel the need to overshare with this kind of information? NO ONE needs to know this.

  16. Jaded says:

    As a five then seven year old I was taught that you NEVER walk in the bathroom if the door is closed. You can knock if you’re bleeding or on fire. Seems they let their kids run the show. My cat doesn’t care for closed doors and he’ll scratch and cry at the bathroom door relentlessly but I don’t let him in. Honestly…SMH…

  17. Tina Marie says:

    I personally am a doors closed person but my best friend told me that her, her husband and their so (who is 18 now) never close the doors when they are going to the bathroom and this was way before this story ever came out. I’ve always found that to be so freaking odd.

  18. dlc says:

    they are starting to remind me of Kristen and Dax. Complete with the more talented female trying to drag the less talented male to greater fame by talking about crap like this. Kristen was in Veronica Mars, Frozen, and the Good place. Mila 70s show, Family Guy, and Black Swan. they do not need to share this dumb crap for attention and feel like the thirstyness of it drags their brand down.

  19. jferber says:

    I never understood this and I never will. I also will never understand telling the world about it.
