Mila Kunis is the only wife to feel this way about her husband
We love a relatable celebrity. Sure, most of them earn annual sums of money comparable to a king’s ransom, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a celebrity who doesn’t have some sort of household help. But when people like Pink or Chrissy Teigen keep things real, it makes us love them more.
Not that we don’t love Mila Kunis — especially as a mom — but her recent quotes on marriage and motherhood — while lovely — aren’t exactly totally relatable.
During an interview for E! alongside her Bad Moms costars, Kunis was asked to name something her husband, Ashton Kutcher, does to annoy her. Now, you ask any spouse or mother that question and chances are you’ll get a laundry list of irritation. Which is normal no matter how much you love someone.
Kunis answered, “My husband does not annoy me. He really doesn’t. It’s an honest answer and it’s the opposite of what people want to hear. I don’t know if [being annoyed] happens later; we’ve only been married for a handful of years, and it’s still very much in the honeymoon phase.”
Oh. OK then. But…but…what about the Nasal Snort Loogie? Or the sock-removal-right-next-to-the-hamper thing? Or finding clipped Man Toenails in your toddler’s clenched fist because men can be gross?
“We still love and really like each other, daily,” Kunis said. “I have an unbelievable partner in crime, I really do. And I’m so grateful for it every single day.”
Look, maybe she just didn’t want to air any spousal grievances out for the world to hear. Can’t blame her for wanting to keep the minutiae of their relationship private. Or maybe Ashton Kutcher really is the literal picture of perfection, who knows.
But since she’s promoting Bad Moms, she’ll probably have some funny stories to share about being a mom to a toddler and an infant, right? Well, E!, God bless their promo-loving souls, asked her what her kids do to annoy her.
“My 10-month-old, even if he’s going through a sleep regression, doesn’t annoy me,” she said. “And my 3-year-old doesn’t annoy me either. She’s inquisitive and wants to know about life and how everything functions, and everything is wonderful and beautiful. I’m just not at the annoyed stage.”
Damn. Mila Kunis is either the embodiment of patience personified, or I’m PMS-ing too hard to take these answers seriously. My own toddler is sweet, funny, inquisitive, and intelligent but when she’s sobbing hysterically and clinging to my ankles while I’m trying to boil a cheap box of macaroni, I tend to feel a tad exasperated.
Listen, kids are annoying sometimes. You can love them dearly, be mystified at their mere existence and every cute thing they do, but you can still find them annoying at times. Same goes for spouses.
