Washington: It has emerged that Ashton Kutcher was the first person Mila Kunis kissed.
The pair, who are rumoured to be dating, starred together in ‘That ‘70s Show’ and shared a romantic moment on the set.
In 1998 the actress didn’t quite know what to make of the news that she would have her first real kiss on camera with Kutcher, a model turned actor whom she`d only just met.
“I was like, ``Oh, he`s so cute, it`s the Calvin Klein model!’” People magazine had quoted her as saying in 2001.
“Then I was like, “I have to kiss him?’ I was so nervous and uncomfortable. I had the biggest crush on him,” she had said.
To settle her nerves, she sprayed on a little liquid courage in the form of some perfume.
“I totally perfumed myself and I was like, ‘Hey, I feel better about myself!” she said at the time.
Kunis, now 28, also recalled “Ashton was so nice. He just made jokes and gave me funny little compliments. He made me laugh.”
Kutcher, now 34, admitted that he was shocked to hear he was such an important part of Kunis’ kissing past.
“I’m the first guy she kissed? Oh my god, I had no idea! I’m so glad I didn’t know that or it would’ve been too much pressure,” he said in 2001.
It was Kutcher, who played Kelso, the boyfriend of Kunis’ character, Jackie, who was anxious about the smooch.
“I was so nervous. She acted so cool. She seemed as if she’d done it a thousand times.
“I was the one with butterflies in my stomach. I mean, here’s this little girl and I have to kiss her. It was nerve-racking,” he added.
