Even major Hollywood stars have been known to get grand romantic gestures hopelessly wrong. In 2019, for instance, Ashton Kutcher thought that he’d found the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for his fellow A-lister wife, Mila Kunis. Yet it turned out that the actor’s surprise wasn’t quite as well received as he may have first hoped. Here’s a look at the lovebirds and their slightly underwhelming February 14.
It’s perhaps fair to say, too, that Kutcher and Kunis’ relationship was something of a slow-burner. The couple first met way back in the late 1990s, after all, when they both landed roles in sitcom That ’70s Show. Kutcher was about to leave his teenage years behind at the time, while Kunis had only just entered hers.
Despite the five-year age gap, however, Kutcher and Kunis became friends. In fact, as Kutcher told Howard Stern in 2017, he even used to help Kunis with her science homework. And in the first season of That ’70s Show, the stars had to smooch on screen when their characters got together. This was not only Kunis’ first peck with her future husband, though; it was also her first kiss ever.
