Before Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher married, they spent eight seasons working together as Jackie and Kelso on That '70s Show. But don't plan on seeing an on-screen comeback for the couple in the future, because Kunis thinks acting with her husband now would be too strange. During her press tour for The Spy Who Dumped Me, when the possibility of being in a movie with Kutcher came up, her decision was a hard pass. Since the stars know each other so well, Kunis thinks she wouldn't be able to play off his acting. As she tells it,

Not going to happen. I can't look at him and not be like 'What are you doing?' it's weird.

In her comments from Today, Mila Kunis explained that has she once made a face while doing a scene with her husband, because they could see right through each other's performances. This broke the illusion needed when acting.

After working together on That 70s Show, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have only shared some screen time in 2014 when Kunis guest starred on Two in a Half Men, and when they both briefly appeared in Annie. The couple has kept their successful careers separate throughout their marriage, even though they met each other while working on That '70s Show.

A romance between the couple didn't blossom while they were on set together. Ashton Kutcher was Mila Kunis' awkward first kiss ever happened during a scene, and there was a large age gap when That '70s Show began. After the long running comedy ended, Kutcher married and divorced Demi Moore, while Kunis dated Macaulay Culkin for 10 years. Funny enough, they starred in oddly similar 2011 rom-coms, Friends With Benefits and No Strings Attached. Even more ironically, when they started dating in 2012, their relationship status was once along those unattached lines. The duo married in 2015 and now have two children: their daughter Wyatt and son Dimitri.

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have both taken on a variety of roles since their humble beginnings as 70s teenagers, but have primarily established themselves as comedic actors. Kunis has starred in a string of female driven comedies recently, with the highly-successful Bad Moms franchise and the upcoming movie The Spy Who Dumped Me. Kutcher has also stayed close to his sitcom roots with Two and a Half Men and The Ranch. While we would love to see the pair reunite again for a movie, Kunis' response is refreshingly honest. It's understandable that she might laugh at the sight of seeing him work, even after all those years of sharing the small screen. It's also sweet to know that the two actors grew up together and somehow found their way back to one another long after That '70s Show concluded.
