Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis don't plan on leaving inheritances to kids

Ultimate Hollywood power couple, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, don’t plan on leaving their inheritances to their kids.
Starring in a range of big movies and shows such as That ‘70s Show, Friends with Benefits and No Strings Attached, the pair have quite the load in the bank.
And instead of their kids cashing it in, they plan on giving the money away to charity.
In a conversation with actor Dax Shepard on his podcast Armchair Expert, Kutcher said: "My kids are living a really privileged life, and they don't even know it.
"And they'll never know it because this is the only one that they'll know.
"I'm not setting up a trust for them. We'll end up giving our money away to charity and to various things."
The star added: "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."
Not only are they teaching their kids a valuable lesson, but, as mentioned, they're intending on giving a significant chunk of their riches to various charities, including ones working on anti-sex trafficking that Kutcher is a vocal supporter of.
This isn't the first time the couple has hit the headlines over their frugal approach to parenting, with reports last year claiming that they 'banned' Christmas presents for their kids.
Mila set the record straight on the claims, telling Lorraine Kelly: "No, we don't ban presents for our kids. This story was taken... out of [context].
"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."
The result of their festive approach came after one particular Christmas, where the grandparents gave Wyatt 'too much'.
She added: "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."
