LOS ANGELES, July 20 (UPI) — In a candid interview with Howard Stern, Mila Kunis described what it was like to date Macaulay Culkin and how she eventually fell in love with her now-husband, Ashton Kutcher.
Dating the “Home Alone” star, even though it was years after the movie came out, was very weird because of the way fans reacted to Culkin, Kunis said. It was not normal fan reaction, she said.
“He was huge. You couldn’t walk down the street with him,” Kunis said. “He always had this weird attraction, like fans just screamed when they saw him. They didn’t know how to react. It wasn’t like a normal response to a celebrity. Fans responded in a very abnormal way to him.”
The “Bad Moms” star, now expecting her second child with Kutcher, said she never intended to get married and while she and Culkin were together for nearly a decade, there was never talk of tying the knot.
The “That 70’s Show” star is now happily married to Kutcher, years after the two played boyfriend and girlfriend in the Fox series when they were still teenagers. There was no love at first sight, she said, and back then, she never even thought about Kutcher being handsome.
“I’m 14, he’s 19,” Kunis said of the show’s first season. It was a bit awkward kissing on screen. “I don’t know who it’s weirder for.”
It wasn’t until years later when Kunis saw Kutcher at an awards show — shortly after his divorce from Demi Moore — that she heard “the music.”
“So I see this guy and I see his back and he’s really tall,” she told Stern. “And then he just turns around and it was literally like if we were in a movie, the music would start playing. I think that he, for the first time ever, took my breath away.”
Kunis’s newest movie, “Bad Moms,” in which she costars with Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn, hits theaters July 29.
