Do you remember when you first tried Cheetos? Mila Kunis hilariously shared with Ryan Seacrest her kids’ minds were blown after they tried the cheesy snack following her Super Bowl ad with hubby Ashton Kutcher and Shaggy.
“My kids [Wyatt, 6, Dimitri, 4] did have Cheetos for the first time in their life so their life changed,” Mila joked with Seacrest on-air on Tuesday, February 9. “I’m not like a super progressive parent by any means, but I don’t really have like Cheetos in the house, but let me tell you something, and this is no joke, I ate Cheetos for two days,” Mila continued. “I really like them. They were really good! … [So] I was like, ‘Oh, all right, I should get some for the kids’, so I brought home a bag of Cheetos from set and I was like, ‘Guys, prepare to have your mind blown. These are wonderful.’ Like, I forgot how good they were!”
In case you missed it, the ad features Mila sneaking Cheetos from her husband Ashton to the tune of Shaggy’s “It Wasn’t Me.”
“My husband and I were excited to get out of the house and it made us laugh,” she shared of joining forces with the brand. “And we just needed a good laugh. We read it and we were like, 'This is funny, it’s carefree.'”
Speaking of being carefree, Mila also used quarantine to enjoy the outdoors — including her backyard in Los Angeles which she turned into a corn farm.
“In the midst of the pandemic, I decided to become a farmer,” Mila shared when Seacrest revealed he’s farming his own olive oil. “In our backyard, we grew I think 200 ears of corn in LA,” Mila added. “It was awesome, and I grew so much corn. … [We made] cornbread, corn soufflé, corn on the cobb, we gave out corn to our neighbors. … I’ve never been more proud of my own work than of that corn.”
Aside from her budding farming career, the actress did lend her chops to upcoming film Breaking News in Yuba County.
“I signed on to doing it because I thought it was one of the most creative voices on paper that I have ever read,” Mila shared. “… And then you put Allison [Janney] in it and I’ve been a super fan of Allison’s for however many years, 20-plus years, I stalked her at a restaurant,” Mila recalled, sharing the film is hilarious and essentially “about 15 minutes of fame and how far will you go to get it and sustain it.”
