Actress Laura Prepon took the entertainment world by surprise on Tuesday when she arrived on the red carpet with actor Ben Foster by her side—not only was it the couple's first red carpet debut, but she had a shiny new engagement ring on her finger!
"Orange Is the New Black" Star Laura Prepon Is Engaged to Ben Foster!
Turns out, we weren't the only ones without a clue. While serving as co-host to Kelly Ripa on Friday's Live!, Ashton Kutcher spilled that he was totally taken aback.
"I'm very upset with her right now," said the That '70s Show actor of his co-star. "She just announced this engagement, and I had to find out in the news!" Since their time on set way back when, the pair have remained friends, which is why Kutcher's not having this whole "secret" engagement thing. "By the way, it's not just a random engagement," he told Ripa. "It's an engagement to another friend of mine! So now I'm double upset that neither of them told me."
Not so fast, Kutcher—you're engagement was also secret! "When Mila and I got engaged, [Prepon] was like, 'What? This is crazy! You guys, it was like 20 years ago. You were friends and no one saw this coming, and now you're engaged and I have to find out this way,'" the actor admitted. And when Prepon joined her hosts she confirmed, adding, "if anyone understands the private life, you do."
It looks like, more than anything, the star's just shocked at the turn of events. "They were friends 20 years ago," he shared, referencing the couple's similarities to him and Mila Kunis. In fact, the four hung out regularly! "Every Friday after our taping, all of our friends would come hang out or whatever," shared Prepon, and Ben Foster was usually there.
In conclusion, love works in mysterious ways. "They're all my friends, and everybody's hooking up, and it's weird!" Ashton concurred.
