Could a man and a woman actually be just friends without any sexual element to the relationship?
Ashton and Mila have history, meeting as teenagers on the set of U.S sitcom That 70′s Show. The on-screen couple spent plenty of time locking lips, starring together for seven seasons until the finale in 2006.
Ashton, also embarked on a successful film career, in comedies such as Dude Where’s My Car (2000) and Just Married (2003). He and Just Married co-star; the late Brittany Murphy, dated for a few months before parting on good terms and remaining friends until the starlet’s tragic passing in December 2009.
Kutcher earned a reputation as a professional prankster with MTV show Punk’d, playing outrageous, hilarious and elaborate practical jokes on celebrities; a personal favorite sees Justin Timberlake literally in tears as his worldly possessions, including his beloved dogs are mercilessly repossessed by bailiffs.
Ashton began dating actress Demi Moore, despite a fifteen year age gap, the relationship progressed and they married in 2005 in a lavish Kabbalah wedding.
Kutcher’s career was rising to stratospheric heights after winning the role as Charlie Sheen’s replacement in hit U.S comedy Two and a Half Men commanding, according to US Weekly, a massive $700,000 per episode.
Following a period of intense media attention, including reports he’d cheated multiple times on Demi, they announced intentions to divorce in November 2011. Ashton has since been linked with a string of young beauties including pop princess Rihanna, gorgeous fellow actress Lorene Scafaria and his latest rumored bed-mate; the mightily easy on the eye Ms Mila Kunis. Mila has also seen her credentials rocket; coming a long way since her 1998 debut in That 70′s Show. She was cast as the vocal talent behind long suffering Meg Griffin in cult animated comedy sitcom Family Guy in 1999.
Off-screen Mila hooked up with Home Alone child-star McCaulay Culkin with the two sharing an intensely private relationship, shunning media attention and showbiz lifestyles. Progressing into movies, the Judd Appatow co-production Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) in which she co-starred with Jason Segel and Kristen Bell, saw Mila make her mark on the silver screen. Her casting as the uninhibited Lily in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan (2010), lead her career to new heights, earning a Golden Globe nomination and an army of male fans for THAT extremely raunchy scene with Ms Natalie Portman. Early 2011, Mila announced that she and McCauley Culkin had taken the train to splitsville. Kunis starred in Friends With Benefits (2011) alongside Justin Timberlake and rumors flew she was dating JT, during an “off phase” of his ongoing “on/off ” relationship with the lovely Jessica Biel – rumors that were vehemently denied by the co-stars. After accepting an invitation to a U.S Marine Corps Ball in November 2011, as the date of Sgt. Scott Moore who’d been serving in Afghanistan, Mila affirmed her status as a firm celebrity favorite with her stunning beauty, massive sex appeal and down-to-earth nature.
Rumors soon flew about possibilities for Ms Kunis’ next rendezvous. So is it possible that they really are just friends? With no benefits? Platonic friendships between a man and a woman are certainly possible, though things can become complicated if you add sexual tension to the mix. Realistically, neither exactly fell outta the ugly tree. Psychologists believe that if they can sustain the friendship, both genders can benefit. Many women will confirm – female friendships can be intensely draining; particularly where heartache is concerned. The male tendency to repress emotions can mean women appreciate uncomplicated banter and joviality. And if most men attempted to talk feelings with their man-pals, it’d likely end up as a pretty uncomfortable experience. Women, on the other hand, have a tendency to enjoy this dissection of emotion, happily attempting to relate to and be confided in by their male friends. Is Mila merely getting her kicks from funny guy Ashton’s entertaning shenanigans? Is Mr Kutcher laying his innermost thoughts and feelings on Ms Kunis? And is that all that’s getting laid? Maybe. Though the amount of Hollywood celebs who adamantly deny any such activity before confirming couplehood is hardly insignificant… we’re thinking maybe not.
