Mila Kunis revealed to Marc Maron on his podcast how the two former costars started dating.
“I did a movie called Friends With Benefits. He did a movie that was very similar called No Strings Attached. We lived our movies out. We were just like, let’s just hook up. Let’s have fun. We’re both single. We both trust each other. Everything’s great.”
However, not even being a celebrity can protect you from the harsh reality that friends with benefits never works. After Ashton told her he was dating someone, she knew she had to break it off.
“I felt like I got punched in the gut, literally overnight. I was like, you know what, I actually care about you. I don’t want to mess anything up so I’m just going to walk away before it becomes too much and he was like, ‘Got it.’ And the next day, he showed up to my house and he was like, ‘Move in with me’ and I said, ‘OK.’”
