That ’70s Show

As if the pregnancy news wasn’t enough, engaged parents to be Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis really are becoming the new Hollywood “it” couple as news breaks that they will be acting on screen again together.  Kunis will play Vivian, a free-spirited world traveler who makes a connection with Kutcher’s Walden on Two and a Half Men. Having previously starred together on That 70’s Show this won’t be the first time that the off-screen couple have had on-screen sparks flying. Continue reading »

I’ve noticed a few new Jim Beam ads during The Paul Henry Show this last week featuring their new face, Mila Kunis.  The ad campaign kicked off recently as the Kentucky Bourbon brand aims to appeal more to their desired demographic.  Strangely enough though, news has surfaced this afternoon that Mila is now pregnant to her soon to be husband and former That 70’s Show co-star, Ashton Kutcher.

I’m not sure about you but that seems like very unfortunate timing to me.  Unless, of course, that is the point of the campaign – “Feed her bourbon and get her pregnant”

It is only when you follow her talents behind the obvious of That 70’s Show and Family Guy that you realise how good she really is.  Brittney Stephens takes us through a list of 10 Reasons Mila should be your friend:

1. She’s like, really pretty. But she doesn’t make a big deal out of it.

“I was never raised to think that I was pretty. It’s not that I was raised to think I was unattractive, but it was just never something that was pointed out to me by my family. They would point out personality traits — ‘our daughter is really quirky’ — versus what I look like, because inevitably, looks go, so it makes no difference.”

2. She’s good at giving perspective on life. . .

 

3. . . . And advice on flirting.

“I think playing coy is silly. Speak your mind. If a man gets turned off, he’s the wrong man.”

The celebrity marry-go-round is a fascinating beast to watch sometimes.  Up and coming stars shacking up with bigger names and then ditching them once they’ve forged their own path is all too common.  As is the term, irreconcilable differences.

To note that That 70’s Show star Ashton Kutcher is divorcing Demi Moore and plans to wed and start a family with Mila Kunis, his onscreen girlfriend from 15 years ago, you’d have to wonder how much of a waste of time the entire facade has been. Does anyone really believe in real life Hollywood love stories anymore?

And as for That 70’s Show, will we ever see this or were the 90’s just not that cool? Continue reading »
