Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have a lot of shared history, but that does not a relationship make. The sexy actress called “absurd” rumors that she is dating the “Two and a Half Men” star.
“A friend is a friend,” Kunis, 28, scolded television show “Extra,” which has been among the tabloid media touting a possible relationship.
Kunis and Kutcher, 34, starred together on television sit-com “That ‘70s Show” early in their careers. The show ran for eight seasons from 1998 through 2006, in all 200 episodes. That’s a lot of time together.
The two were spotted together last week, igniting rumors that they were becoming romantically involved. Kutcher was married to actress Demi Moore for six years. The marriage collapsed last November after Kutcher was caught in a tryst with a young blonde in San Diego.
According to reports, the two reunited for the Fox 25th Anniversary special, were seen furniture shopping and had dinner together April 15, before heading for Kutcher’s new Hollywood Hills home.
“Ashton was touching Mila’s hand and Mila was all dressed up. She looked hot; this was definitely more than a dinner between friends — this was a full-on date!” said a photographer on the scene.
They were spotted again on a three-day getaway to the coastal town of Carpinteria, Calif., not long afterward.
She broke up with long-time boyfriend Macaulay Culkin, whom she started dating in 2002, last year.
“They’re both single, having fun,” a source told People. “There’s nothing serious going on – just friends having fun.”
Still, speculation continues that Kunis, who started with Justin Timberlake in the film, “Friends with Benefits” may have struck up a real life “friends with benefits” relationship with her former co-star.
