Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have a desirable relationship and seem like the perfect couple. However, before they got married, the actress was in an almost decade-long but private relationship with another star.


Milena Markovna "Mila" Kunis, born on August 14, 1983, was only seven years old when she immigrated with her family from Ukraine to the United States. They had a rough start, but they got over it pretty fast.

Her parents enrolled her in a children's acting program to help her acclimatize and meet other kids. However, a talent manager spotted her, and at 14, she got her big break on "That '70s Show," and the rest is history.

On May 23, 2022, Mila Kunis became one of the 100 names listed in Time's "THE 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE OF 2022." Zoe Saldana, who did a piece on her for Time, praised Kunis's devotion and big heart. Saldana said:

"She's such a curious individual, hungry for conversations that are important, that are thought-­provoking. [...] Seeing her fundraise for Ukraine and raise tens of millions: it's what we have come to expect the Kutcher-Kunis clan to do."

Although she is now a devoted mother and wife, her husband was not the first person she had been with. Here is a look at who Kunis had dated before getting married.



Kunis and Macaulay Culkin started dating in 2002, but their relationship ended in 2011. The couple kept their relationship private, but there were media speculations that they were already engaged one year into their relationship.

Kunis and Culkin met just after his divorce from Rachel Miner, and Kunis said he was the most brilliant person she had ever met. They grew up together as they were both young when they became a couple.

Despite revealing in 2009 that they could work through their ups and downs together, the couple quietly ended their relationship in early 2011.

While they did not speak about their breakup, Kunis's publicist revealed that they split amicably and remained close friends. Kunis later mentioned that the relationship was a positive experience that helped shape her identity.



Kutcher and Kunis met in 1998 when they starred in "That '70s Show." She was 14, and he was 19. He was her first kiss when she played Jackie Burkhart, and he played Michael Kelso on the show.

However, she said she did not have feelings for him then, so they did not become a couple until 2012, after reconnecting at a party. Kutcher had just broken up with Demi Moore when they reconnected, and he had not finalized his divorce yet.

Two years later, Kunis and Kutcher got engaged and tied the knot over the Fourth of July holiday in 2015. It was an intimate and relaxed ceremony to celebrate with their close friends and family.

Before tying the knot, the couple had welcomed their daughter, Wyatt Isabelle, on October 1, 2014. On November 30, 2016, they had a son, Dimitri Portwood.
