Having famous, rich, attractive parents sounds like winning the kid lottery. But for Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s kids, it’s closer to winning $200 on a scratcher than hitting it big on Powerball. The Kunis-Kutchers are planning to eschew nepotism and force their kids make it on their own. According E!, Ashton appeared on his Punk’d pal Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast and revealed that his kids aren’t getting trust funds from mommy and daddy.
Mila and Ashton have already withheld Christmas gifts from their two kids, daughter Wyatt and son Dimitri, in order to instill some reality into their privileged lives. Now they are planning on giving their inheritance away to charity. E! reports:
“…my kids are not getting like big…I’m not setting up a trust for them, we’ll end up giving our money away to charity and to various things,” Kutcher said. “And so if my kids want to start a business and they have a good business plan, I’ll invest in it but they’re not getting trusts. So hopefully they’ll be motivated to have what they had or some version of what they had.”
I totally respect their decision but if I were little Wyatt or Dimintri I’d be pissed! What’s the point of having rich and famous parents if you can’t grow up to experiment with drugs and yachts as you see fit? Sure, somebody will eventually give them a reality show based solely on their looks and parentage but cocaine is really, really expensive. I commend Mila and Ashton’s effort and vision of hard working, respectful children but even if they all drop out of Hollywood and move to an Ashram in Ohio, they’re still gonna be treated as Ashton and Mila’s kids. It’s gotta be an uphill battle to raise normal kids in Hollywood, but I guess it’s nice that they’re trying.
