This is one of the best love stories ever – it’s pretty much Friends with Benefits and No Strings Attached. Mila Kunis told Howard Stern on his show about how their relationship started and it’s basically the same as the movie plots they starred in. Kunis revealed that started going out with no intentions of getting married, “[Kutcher] just got out of a marriage. I got out of a long relationship. I was single and having the best time ever. I was totally dating, having a great time, and I was like, ‘I’m never getting married.’ He’s like, ‘Great, neither am I!’ And we’re like shaking hands on it and we’re like, ‘Life is great!’ A year later, we’re like, ‘Tomorrow, let’s get married.'”
Despite working on movies with the message that a “friends with benefits” situation with “no strings attached” never works, they still started seeing eachother with this approach in mind. Obviously, later down the track, they knew an open relationship wouldn’t work and now the two are living happily ever after with a second child on the way.
Kunis said to Stern, “We both were in agreement. Like, “Yeah, this is just fun. Just fun,” shook hands on it, “this is just fun.” Three months later, I was like, “This isn’t fun anymore.” We were always open. We were incredibly open with one another in regard to like where we were with our feelings. We found out we would literally attempt to see other people and then like that night we’d be like, “Hey, what are you up to? Wanna come over?” It ended up being just having fun to genuinely wanting [more]—when I realized I was nervous [about him going out with someone else and me losing him], was when I spoke to him. I was like, I don’t like this anymore.”
