Mila Kunis Opened Up About The "Codependent" Relationship She Has With Ashton Kutcher And Their Kids

"Our whole family is already codependent, so this pandemic just feeds into our entire codependency."

Mila Kunis has opened up about life with Ashton Kutcher and their two kids, revealing in a rare interview that they're a very "codependent" family.

Mila, who shares Wyatt, 6, and Dimitri, 4, with Ashton, made the admission while discussing how the coronavirus pandemic has affected their dynamic.

"Our whole family is already codependent, so this pandemic just feeds into our entire codependency," Mila told Entertainment Tonight. "My husband and I were codependent for, like, eight years."

"In this pandemic, our kids are like, 'Where are you going?' And I'm like, 'The bathroom,'" she continued. "We haven't left each other. We're in the house. They've forgotten that we have to go out of the house."

And Mila went on to reveal that when she and Ashton were recently offered a part in a Cheetos Super Bowl commercial, they jumped at the chance for "freedom" and some time away from home.

"Ashton and I, we never work together," she said. "In the midst of quarantine, they sent us this ad to do. Every other time I've been offered a Super Bowl ad, it's always a female having to be scantily clad. This one comes around and I started laughing so hard. I was like, 'We should do it!'"

"Also, it was quarantine and we were stuck with our children for nine, 12, months at this moment, and I was like, 'Two days, baby! Two days off!'" she added. "I hate saying it, but we were like, 'Freedom!' It was amazing."

"I love my children so very much — so, so much," Mila noted. "But I've never been so excited to wake up at 5 in the morning to be like, 'I'm going to work!' And I literally skipped out of the house."

This isn't the first time Mila has got real about life in lockdown with two young kids. Back in May, she and Ashton admitted that they were struggling with homeschooling and had even enlisted the help of friends to impart some of their knowledge.

"Boy, do I appreciate teachers," Mila said during an appearance on The Tonight Show. "I realize I’m a fantastic TA. I’m like a professional TA."

"We set up like a curriculum for the week, and we plan it out and figure out what the kids are going to learn throughout the week," Ashton went on. "And so we’ve done various weeks. The first week was energy and electricity. And then we did how to build things — architecture, and building."

"We enlisted our friends to do 20-minute Zoom sessions with our kids," Mila went on. "It can be anything — from making flower arrangements to architecture. That gives us 20 minutes of not parenting and also allows our kids to have another type of interaction."
