Mila Kunis has revealed that she and now-hubby Ashton Kutcher were literally ‘friends with benefits,’ aka – casual sex buddies – before they started properly dating.

Yep – replicating the movies they both starred in at the time, Ashton in No Strings Attached, and Mila in Friends With Benefits. What are the chances?!

Mila tells Sirius XM: “I don’t know if I should tell this story, I could get in trouble for it. We were in similar movies and we should have paid attention to them because this doesn’t work in real life.

“We clearly didn’t pay attention and we shook hands on it and said we would just have fun. We literally lived out our movies.”

Mila also admits the pair never planned to get married, as they’d both come out of long-term relationships. Ashton was married to Demi Moore from 2005-2011 while Mila split from her boyfriend Macaulay Culkin the same year, having dated him since 2002.

“We started dating with the idea we both were never going to get married. He had just got out of a marriage and I had gotten out of a relationship. We shook hands on it and life was great. But we were in agreement that it was just fun. And three months later, I was like, ‘this isn’t just fun anymore.'”

“And then a year later we wanted to get married. I think it took everyone by surprise.”

Although Mila and Ashton co-starred on That 70’s Show together, she never saw him as anything more than a friend.

She met up with him years later at an awards show, and things were looking promising when he invited her to an after party – but it was actually to introduce her to his mate. AWKS!

“We’d always kept in touch but I never thought of him romantically. I was at an awards show and I see this guy and I see his back and he’s really tall. I was like, ‘Who’s that guy?'”

“Then he just turns around and it was literally like if we were in a movie, the music would start playing and the violins would go…I think for the first time ever he took my breath away…I was like f**k, he’s good looking.

“He had planned to set me up with his friend. Long story short, I didn’t leave until the next morning. It was the first time I had stayed over at a guy’s house when I was single but he didn’t want me to leave.'”

And that’s how Mila and Ashton became the CUTEST Hollywood couple ever!
