Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis share a great fairy tale romance story starting from the famous “That 70’s Show”. Their story goes that long back and I bet people still haven’t had enough of listening to it. We can even say they lived “happily ever after”.
They definitely make it to every single “power couple list” of mine. And if their story so far is not enough for that, Ashton’s Kutcher’s recent speech to the Senate and his welcome message to refugees from the SAG awards definitely boost up their popularity as a couple, as a family and even as a husband and a father.
Kutcher received the Robert D Ray Pilliar of Character award on Saturday for his “good character as a role model”. In his acceptance speech at the Ron Pearson Center in West Des Moines, he thanked his wife and his children for giving him the character.
Isn’t that really sweet?
Wait till you hear the rest.
Kutcher has always been known for helping local schools and co-funding the Native Fund which provides disaster relief for Iowa residents, which also happens to be Kutcher’s native place.
He went on to talk about his earlier struggles which included a huge adultery accusation, a felony burglary arrest for breaking into his high school and an incident of being pulled over for driving while tripping on mushrooms and how it all helped him grow as a person.
He said, “Because life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you. Every. Single. Time. And as long as you have love and kindness and optimism and a pursuit of something greater in your heart , you’re the lucky one. So this award is for you. It is for my family, it’s for all four of my parents, it’s for my wife, who kicks my ass on character every day.”
Then he went on in praise of his wife.
“I mean I’m telling you, this morning I woke up and she kicked my ass on character. I thought I was awesome because I got up early and helped with the kids before she woke up and I let her sleep a little bit and then she’s like, ‘Well now you’re gonna act tired? I do it every day.’ But it was a character moment, right? Because she’s right!”
He didn’t leave out his children either. About them he said, “But the greatest, greatest lesson in character in my life are my kids. When I had these kids, my wife and I had these kids and we got to share that amazing, amazing, amazing honour, my first response was, I wanted to call my parents and say, I’m sorry, because I never knew how much you loved me.”
If those words aren’t heart touching I don’t know what is! Truly awesome words from an en even more awesome actor. His love for his family continues to inspire us.
