Love it or hate it, Mila Kunis is known for speaking her mind and keeping it authentic.
She did a video interview with Net-a-Porter’s “The Edit” that cafemom.com featured where Kunis got really honest about what having kids, a daughter Wyatt and her young son Dimitri, is like for her and husband Ashton Kutcher.
Here’s the key takeaways:
Working in the movies is like having a baby
Kunis says on a film set you shoot 16-17-hour days, sleep a few hours then you’re back at it again the next day. BAM. “That’s like having a baby!” she explodes.
To be honest, she actually compared doing a “really horrible movie” to being a mom. Ha! Not judging at all. (Maybe a little)
No parent wants to raise an ‘a**hole’
She hopes she’s stating the obvious here. Why would a parent want to raise a little jerk?
She wants to raise a child she can be friends with
Kunis points out doesn’t consider her 3-year-old a friend right now because at that age, she’s just her daughter. She goes on to talk about the relationship she formed with her mom later in life and hopes she will have that kind of friendship with her daughter in the future. Awe.
Don’t put that in your mouth
There’s a fun little montage of Kunis saying over and over and over again, “Don’t put that in your mouth.” Yep. That basically is the essence of parenting.
She’s not proud that her daughter dropped an ‘F’ bomb
…But her and the hubby did giggle about it. Because really, what else can you do?
She and Ashton Kutcher have the morning routine down
Most parents aren’t there yet, so good on you Mila, but it does sound like they have a pretty solid system in place to ensure success. Moms may want to play that part of the video a few times and take notes. #PowerCouple
