Mila Kunis Hilariously Reignited That Whole Bathing-Her-Kids Debate

America is desperately in need of a silly debate right now, and Mila Kunis has once again stepped up to the plate to give us one. Thanks to a new interview, she’s stoking the hilarious fire she and Ashton Kutcher lit during the summer when they revealed how often they bathe their kids.

For those who somehow missed it, the two were interviewed on Dax Shepard’s podcast Armchair Expert in July, and casually revealed they aren’t fastidious about their family bathing routine. Not intending to stir up a drama, Kunis mentioned, “When I had [newborn] children, I also didn’t wash them every day…. I wasn’t the parent that bathed my newborns—ever.” Kutcher added, “Now, here’s the thing: If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there’s no point.”

Shepard agreed, and his wife Kristen Bell later weighed in on the discussion, saying on The View, “I’m a big fan of waiting for the stink…. Once you catch a whiff, that’s biology’s way of letting you know you need to clean it up. There’s a red flag…. I don’t hate what [Kunis and Kutcher] are doing. I wait for the stink.”

Then came the takes. Jake Gyllenhaal made a joke that no one could tell was a joke; Jason Momoa and The Rock both proclaimed they’re in the pocket of Big Shower, and to set the record straight (we guess), Kunis and Kutcher posted an Instagram video in August that showed them laughing and, yes, getting their kids ready for a bath.

But the story’s not over till it’s over. Mila Kunis just went on Ellen to address the minor brouhaha, clarifying a few things and making some jokes. “The kids, there’s a body of water that they touch just about every day,” she said. “Almost every day. Sometimes it’s the pool, sometimes it’s a sprinkler. It just depends…. It’s COVID. It was like, Who showers in COVID? We don’t leave the house. Who cares?” 

She also revealed, “My intent every day is to bathe my children. I wake up every day, and I’m like, ‘Today I’m going to shower my kids.’ And then bedtime happens and I forgot to feed them.” That last part is clearly a joke, but, acknowledging the segment had kind of gone off the rails by the end, she later declared, “I feed my kids, you guys!”
