Mila Kunis, 29, and Ashton Kutcher, 34, have finally clarified the rumors of their romantic relationship with a mid-day make out session in New York City’s Central Park. The That 70’s Show co-stars strolled through the city streets holding hands and hugging one another on Monday, Sept. 17.
Kunis vehemently denied dating Kutcher telling Britain’s Elle in August; “I am totally single…Listen, we hang out. We’ve known each other for 15 years. We have mutual friends. We’re comfortable with one another. That’s it. There’s no crazy love story, nothing more.”
So how did these two co-stars become lovebirds?
The duo played onscreen couple Jackie Burkhart and Michael Kelso on That 70’s Show, which began in 1998. They remained firm friends even after the eight seasons finally came to an end.
Kunis became involved with Home Alone actor, Macaulay Culkin, 32, in 2002 but broke up in 2011 after almost nine years together. Kunis’ rep at the time told the New York Post that “the split was amicable, and they remain close friends.”
The pair split shortly before Kunis’ big Golden Globe-nominated film, Black Swan, hit theaters and the film cemented her spot among Hollywood’s leading ladies.
Meanwhile, Kutcher’s relationship and subsequent marriage to Demi Moore, 49, made plenty of headlines of it’s own.
The unlikely couple, complete with a 15-year age gap, raised a few eyebrows when they tied the knot, but they still remained married for six years with Kutcher even serving as the cool step-father to Moore’s three daughters with Bruce Willis.
After months of gut-wrenching infidelity rumors, the couple decided to divorce in November of 2011. Kutcher tweeted after the announcement: “I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.”
In April 2012, Kunis and Kutcher reportedly spent the weekend together in the seaside town of Carpinteria, CA. After initially laughing off relationship rumors, the two began making more public appearances together.
From sushi date nights to sneaking kisses in SoHo House in West Hollywood, they couldn’t hide their affection for one another much longer.
The most recent sightings of Kunis and Kutcher making out in Central Park are proof positive that these two former co-stars are officially a couple.
