Mila Kunis is nothing if not honest. And that goes for topics ranging from her husband, Ashton Kutcher, to their daughter and new baby on the way. So when Glamour asked the actor about marriage and motherhood, Kunis cut to the chase.
She and Kutcher were famously friends first; the two met almost 20 years ago playing love interests on That '70s Show. But believe it or not, she didn't even like her future husband for a bit. "We went through a period where I thought he was crazy. At the height of his career, I was like, 'Ugh, I don't like you. I don't even know you anymore. You think you're such hot sh-t.'"
They survived "friendship breakups" and then made up, all before even getting together romantically. Marriage was never really part of the plan for Kunis—as a kid, she didn't believe in the concept, swearing she would never get married until same-sex couples could. True to her word, she and Kutcher tied the knot in July 2015 following the Supreme Court's ruling for marriage equality.
There are benefits to being friends first. "We can't bullsh-t each other," Kunis said. "I literally can't lie to him. He can call me out on everything, and I can do the same, because there's nothing about the other person's face that we don't know. We know when they're acting, thus we know when they're lying. Sometimes he'll look at me, be like, 'Really?' And I'm like, 'F--k.' … There's nothing we don't know about each other because we've known each other for so long: the ugly, the bad, the good … It truly is being married to your best friend. That's a cliché; it's cheesy. But it's true."
When it comes to parenting their daughter, Wyatt, Kunis and Kutcher are hands-on. Kutcher has said that they don't have a nanny and called Kunis "the greatest mom."
And it goes both ways: "He has a constant desire to fix a problem," Kunis said of Kutcher. "He's always doing daddy hacks. He's so not a passive husband or father. He doesn't just go, 'I don’t know' and throw his hands up in the air. He's like, 'We can fix it.'"
That doesn't mean they don't have their differences. "I love The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Kunis said, laughing. "He thinks that show's killing brains. And he lives and breathes football. When we started dating, I downloaded the ESPN app to know if his team won or lost so I would know whether to call. If the Bears lose, your whole Sunday's gone to sh-t. So it saved our relationship."
Not everything about the Kunis-Kutchers is public domain, though: Their super-secret wedding in Oak Glen, California, for example, was kept private until a year later, when they finally confirmed it. "We never denied it," Kunis said. "We just never talked about it. It was something that didn't have anything to do with anybody else."
