Newlywed Mila Kunis Gushes About 'Hands-on Dad' Ashton Kutcher: He 'Wants to Change Every Diaper'
The actress talked about her new projects and life with her husband and young daughter
“We do family outfits. It makes everyone go crazy, Kunis, 31, said, adding, “Last year I dressed [daughter Wyatt Isabelle] as a pig. I went as a pig. And my husband went as a pig.”
It’s that spirit that Kunis said is most important to her: “I don’t live to work, I work to live. I never took my career too seriously before. After becoming a mom, I definitely don’t.”
The actress and producer also gushed over Kutcher, 37, her former ’70s Show co-star, who she called “brilliant” and “an incredibly hands-on” parent.
“My husband is an incredibly hands-on dad. When my child was born, I was breast-feeding and he said, ‘That’s your connection, I want to change every diaper,’ ” she said.
(Kutcher has recently campaigned for gender-neutral baby-changing facilities.)

Characteristically candid, Kunis also spoke about her pro-Obama political views, the ongoing tensions in Ukraine, her native country, and her work as the face of jewelry company Gemfields – who Kunis said she supports in part because of their stance against child labor.
“After having my own child, it puts it all into perspective. The idea of her at the age of nine having bleeding sores and working 20 hours a day for pennies … It’s pure slavery,” she said.
One thing she is less thrilled with is the complete loss of privacy accompanied by her fame – Kunis was a victim of hacking in 2011 – and how that affects her relationship with her daughter.
“I think when you are a young actor couple you are screwed, she said. “It got to a stage where I couldn’t leave the house. I love what I do, but the reality is that my privacy is gone.
“I’m not complaining, I just don’t like the idea that my child can’t go to the park with her mother. And if she does, then I have to trail a s—load of paparazzi with me.”
She’ll be teaching a similar lesson to Wyatt Isabelle as she grows up, she said.
“I’m not against technology, if you educate your kids on the ramifications: ‘Go ahead, post beautiful photos of yourself, maybe don t post any nude ones.’ “
