Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, a beloved couple in Hollywood, have a longstanding history. Prior to their romantic relationship, they had known each other for nearly a decade.
Kutcher and Kunis first crossed paths while filming the popular television sitcom “That ’70s Show,” which aired from 1998 to 2006. However, at that time, Kutcher was married to Demi Moore, and they tied the knot in 2005. Unfortunately, their marriage ended after six years and they officially divorced in 2012.
According to Kunis, their relationship started out casually, similar to the plots of their movies “Friends with Benefits” and “No Strings Attached.” However, just like in those films, one of them eventually developed deeper emotions.
In 2012, Kunis and Kutcher made their romance public, and according to Kutcher, he expressed his love for Kunis while listening to “You and Tequila” by Kenny and Grace Potter for the first time.
In 2014, the couple got engaged, and just a month later, they happily announced that they were expecting their first child. They secretly tied the knot in 2015, although they had already been married prior to their public ceremony. In 2016, they welcomed their second child into the world.
Both Kunis and Kutcher had started their acting careers early in life, and by the time they began dating, they had already accumulated significant wealth.
Kunis gained widespread recognition from her eight-year stint on the hit TV show “That ’70s Show”, and it has been rumored that one of her co-stars earned a hefty sum of $6 to $8 million per season.
In addition to her TV success, Kunis has also lent her voice to the animated series “Family Guy” since its debut in 1999. Reports suggest that voice actors on the show earn around $175,000 to $225,000 per episode, amounting to an estimated $2 million per year. Furthermore, Kunis has appeared in several popular films, and she and her spouse jointly own three mansions, showcasing their financial success.
The couple boasts an impressive real estate portfolio, including a $2.9 million home in Laurel Canyon, a $540,000 apartment in West Hollywood, and a $10 million house in Santa Barbara. They have also sold a property in Beverly Hills for a profit.
Reports estimate Kunis’ net worth to be around $75 million, thanks to her successful acting career. Kutcher, too, has made a name for himself in the entertainment industry with notable roles in TV shows like “Two and a Half Men” and “The Ranch,” among others.
In addition to his acting earnings, Kutcher has also made savvy investments, which have contributed to his substantial income. In fact, he was recognized as one of the highest-paid television performers in 2012, showcasing his business acumen alongside his talent as an actor.
In addition to his success in acting, Kutcher is known for his entrepreneurial endeavors. He co-founded A-Grade Investments, an investment company that has made profitable investments in companies like Uber, Skype, and Airbnb. Their $30 million investment reportedly yielded a remarkable return of $250 million.
Kutcher has also co-founded another investment firm called Sound Ventures, and he owns a production company named Katalyst Productions, which he established in 2000 alongside Jason Goldberg.
Despite their considerable wealth, Kunis shared that their wedding rings were actually purchased from Etsy. She specifically wanted a thin platinum ring, but found the prices at high-end stores like Tiffany & Co. to be prohibitively expensive, hence opting for a more affordable option from Etsy.
After finding affordable options on Etsy, Kunis and Kutcher opted for minimalistic wedding rings with Kunis’s ring costing $90 and Kutcher’s ring costing $100. While Kunis has a larger and more expensive engagement ring, she wears it sparingly, preferring a subtle and unobtrusive daily bracelet.
In 2019, Kutcher revealed that he had experienced a life-threatening health emergency. He was diagnosed with a severe form of vasculitis, a rare autoimmune condition that causes inflammation of blood vessels, resulting in symptoms such as difficulty walking, hearing, and seeing.
During this challenging time, it was a scary experience for Kunis and their children, but Kutcher persevered and fought hard to regain his health and return to normalcy. He shared that facing the possibility of death has made him realize the importance of prioritizing precious moments with his children.
Moreover, Kutcher has been wise with his financial decisions, recognizing that he wants to enjoy his life and not solely focus on work indefinitely. He has made strategic choices to ensure he can live a fulfilling life beyond just work.
During this challenging period, Kunis stood by Kutcher’s side unwaveringly, as noted by Dr. David Agus during their conversation on “The Check Up.” The actor expressed his admiration for his wife, describing her as the best.
Kunis and Kutcher also embarked on an innovative project to build a sustainable, modern farmhouse on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Their home is now adorned with an array of fruits and vegetables, including tomatoes, carrots, squash, dill, lemongrass, and even a flourishing pomegranate tree. Their commitment to eco-friendly living and cultivating their own produce showcases their passion for sustainable living.
Kunis initially had reservations when Kutcher suggested the idea of living and working on a farm. However, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, they realized the value of having a self-sustaining home and felt grateful for their decision to create a farm-like environment.
Nestled behind their pool are apple trees and a cozy barbecue area complete with a pizza oven, which Kutcher gifted to his wife on their anniversary. The entire home is powered by solar energy, and an ample water supply keeps their plants thriving. Adding to its unique charm, the exterior of the house is adorned with large oak beams salvaged from an abandoned Wonder Bread plant.
The Kutcher family works together to cultivate their own fruits and vegetables, even though Kunis’ parents sometimes tease her about the cost of producing a tomato on their farm compared to buying one at the store. However, Kunis isn’t concerned, as she values the opportunity to teach her kids the importance of food production and the effort it takes to grow even a single tomato.
