Ashton went on to reveal that his future-wife actually had a *slight* crush on him at the time.
“She has a journal, like a diary of when she was a kid that she wrote … she thought I was cute,” Kutcher said. “At first I think she thought that I was good looking. Shortly thereafter, I was just annoying to her because I was like a big brother.”
The pair shared their second kiss after reconnecting at a party years later, after Ashton had split from his wife of six years Demi Moore, and Mila had split from her boyfriend of seven years Macaulay Culkin.
“I was smoking cigarettes at the time and I was still a smoker and she had quit smoking and she wanted me to like shotgun cigarette smoke so she could breathe it in. And I was like, ‘Well alright.’ And so I started doing this and gradually through the night, it got closer and closer and closer,” he said of their flirtations. “I think it was pretty mutual — it was kind of obvious that things were happening.”
He went on to reveal that the pair became friends with benefits, before officially beginning to date in 2012.
“She’s like, ‘You’re not ready to be in a relationship’ and I’m like, ‘I”m not ready to be a in a relationship,’ ” he admitted. “It was funny because I’d just done this movie called No Strings Attached and she just did a movie called Friends with Benefits and we legitimately lived out our movies, which was virtually the same movie.
