Mila Kunis blames herself for 'horrible, horrible breakup' with Macaulay Culkin

She and husband Ashton Kutcher have two children, but Mila Kunis has recently opened up about her split from Macaulay Culkin.

Mila dated the Home Alone star for eight years before it all came crashing down in what the actress calls a “horrible, horrible breakup.” Apparently, she was the one at fault.

Mila opened up about the split – which was announced in January 2011 – during her appearance on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast.

“I was an a*****e in my 20s, and I’ll be the first to admit it,” the 34-year-old star told Dax, who’s married to her Bad Moms and Bad Moms Christmas co-star Kristen Bell.

“And that’s something that took me a long time to come out and be like, ‘Yeah, you know what, I was a d**k,’ and accept it and I own it now.”

Mila, who began dating husband Kutcher in 2012, didn’t specify what exactly went wrong – but did insist that she was the one who “f***ed up.”

“And it’s f***ed up what I did,” she continued. “It’s f***ed up what I did and it’s f***ed up how I did it. When I got to be a single I said, ‘I just need to figure myself out. I genuinely need to know why I did what I did, and, like, regroup myself as a human being.’”

Though Mila blames herself for the split, it all sounds like water under the bridge at this point.

“You know, it’s been so long, I feel like enough time has gone by,” she said.

“I think enough mutual friends have been like, everybody kind of forgave everybody for what went down.”
