Before Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were an item, the former That '70s Show actress was coupled with a different actor: Macaulay Culkin. Prior to Mila Kunis becoming a movie star, the couple dated for quite some time, getting together in 2002 and staying together for eight years. While it was a long-standing relationship, it was evidently not meant to last. And looking back on their time together, Mila Kunis takes the blame for the destruction of their relationship. Promoting her new comedy, The Spy Who Dumped Me, Mila Kunis took a trip down memory lane and revisited the famous relationship from her past. While the 34-year-old actress didn't get into too many specifics, she claimed her attitude in her 20s ultimately lead to the broken relationship. Here's what Mila Kunis had to say when he was asked what happened between her and Macaulay Culkin.
I fucked up. I was an ass in my 20s and I'll be the first to admit it. And that's something that took me a long time to come out and be like, 'Yeah, you know what, I was a dick,' and accept it and I own it now.
The topic came up during a recent appearance on Dax Shepard's podcast, Armchair Expert. In the conversation, which discussed everything from Mila Kunis' early immigration at age 7 to her relationship with her family, among other points of discussion, it was ultimately this insight into her relationship with Macaulay Culkin that earned the most attention -- notably, since Mila Kunis hasn't often discussed the fallout of her relationship publicly. Based on Kunis's recounting, it wasn't an easy breakup, and by her own admission, Mila Kunis claimed she "fucked up" badly.
And it's fucked up what I did. It's fucked up what I did and it's fucked up how I did it. When I got to be a single I said, 'I just need to figure myself out.' I genuinely need to know why I did what I did, and, like, regroup myself as a human being.
When Dax Shepard asked Mila Kunis if she forgave herself for her past behavior, the Bad Moms actress claimed it has been a long time, and that everyone involved seemingly let it go behind them. It's not entirely clear if she has made peace with it all, but it sounds like she and Macaulay Culkin have moved on, and they're putting the past behind them now.
These days, Mila Kunis is married to her That's '70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher, as it was mentioned at the top, and they share two children together -- Wyatt, 3, and Dimitri, 1. The couple appears to be happily married, although when Kutcher appeared on Dax Shepard's podcast a few months earlier, the actor admitted that he also had a difficult time getting over his broken marriage to Demi Moore. He claims it took him a week in the woods to clear his head and to make amends to people he mistreated in the past.
Now that Kutcher and Kunis have talked openly about the past, they only seem to be looking into the future.
