Mila Kunis Has Set The Record Straight Over 'Banning Christmas Presents' For Her Kids
| Last updated
You'd think that being the child of two millionaires, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher's offspring would be all set for an absolutely Christmas - a massive tree, Christmas dinner prepared by a chef and mountains of presents, as standard.
That was until claims that they had 'banned' their little ones from getting any presents began to surface. Now, though, Mila has set the record straight about the so-called ban.
The Hollywood actor was on ITV's Lorraine to promote her new movie A Bad Moms Christmas when she was asked about the 'ban'.
She said: No, we don't ban presents for our kids. This story was taken...out of.
"There's something to be said for desire and want. When Wyatt is like I really, really want that, I want her to have that feeling of need and want and I also want her to earn it.
"Right now every gift she's gotten has zero meaning. I don't need her to become expectant of gifts in life."
Mila, who has two kids with Ashton - three-year-old Wyatt and one-year-old Dimitri - has previously said that the couple are working hard not to 'raise assholes'. Well, that seems like sensible parenting to me.
However, no matter how strict she and Ashton are, the tradition of grandparents spoiling their grandkids is ongoing.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said: "Last year when we celebrated Christmas, Wyatt was two and it was too much. We didn't give her anything - it was the grandparents. The kid no longer appreciates the one gift.
"They don't even know what they're expecting; they're just expecting stuff.
"We've told our parents: 'We're begging you - if you have to give her something, pick one gift. Otherwise, we'd like to take a charitable donation, to the Children's Hospital or a pet or whatever you want.' That's our new tradition."
Despite keeping presents to a minimum, it sounds like Christmas 'round Mila's place is still pretty fantastic. She told ETonline: "So as far as tradition goes, my family's big on any excuse to get the family together and get drunk. Whether it's Easter, which we've now all accepted into our Jewish household, or Christmas, it doesn't matter."
Set me a place, guys, I love getting drunk and hate buying presents, too.
