The longtime friends and That ’70s Show costars went on a three-day getaway to the coastal town of Carpinteria, Calif., just south of Santa Barbara. While away, Kutcher, 34, and Kunis, 28, dined on sushi, shopped for fruit and flowers and spent plenty of time in private.
After driving up from L.A. together last Thursday, the pair were spotted grabbing a quiet sushi lunch for two the next day. Later that day, Kutcher looked on while Kunis bought sunflowers and blueberries at a roadside fruit stand.
They weren’t spotted out on Saturday but made a coffee run the next day before driving back to L.A., where a solo Kutcher took in the Lakers game court-side.
Last week Kunis’s rep denied rumors that the pair were an item after they were spotted going to dinner with friends and reportedly shopping for furniture.
Neither rep would comment on their weekend outing, but a Kutcher source tells PEOPLE that the Two and a Half Men star has long held a torch for Kunis.
“He was so in love with her for a while when they worked together,” says the source. “He thought she was a goddess, was always talking about how beautiful she is. But she was with Macaulay [Culkin] for a lot of that time and also just generally gave off a not interested vibe.”
Adds the source, “It never happened, but I’m not surprised by this – at all.”
Are you guys surprised by this? Because I guess I’m not surprised by this. It’s not like we were caught off guard with it or anything—they were on a date just last week with “a bunch of friends.” Ashton’ll pretty much stick it in any willing party these days, and if these two are such “good friends” as they claim to be, then there’s nothing wrong with a little FWB, I guess, know?
Celebuzz has an exclusive source that says the two have had tons of chemistry:
“They have been close friends for years and there has always been a lot of chemistry. Whenever they are in between relationships, or aren’t seriously dating anyone, they tend to spend more time together.”
So, I don’t know. Are they or aren’t they? And if they are, do we care? Does this redeem Ashton from being a complete douchebag, or is Mila just another on a sex-string of attractive women post-divorce?
