It started with a TV show. One of the weirdest relationships that we saw on the small screen but it was fun to watch. Michael was the not so bright, weed smoking and always getting into trouble kid and Jackie was the spoiled brat with a voice that would make you run into oncoming traffic. But they made it work, most of the time.
Fast forward and their personal lives went in different directions. Both were romantically linked to others but it was just something about the two of them when they were in a room together that made you want to root for them to make a connection.
As I watched both in separate movies I figured their love interest looked a bit out of place. No disrespect to Cameron Diaz or Justin Timberlake but I wanted to see Kutcher in Friends with Benefits and Kunis in Married in Vegas. Both actors did an exceptional job but the Kutcher and Kunis chemistry would have taken both films to new heights.[embedit snippet=”2″]
However, when it was finally announced that they were a couple it got me to wondering if this was a Hollywood pairing or a love connection? Hollywood and the Entertainment world is full of so many fake relationships that you tend to lose count. Everything is done for the sake of saving careers, boosting record sales or movie hype. It’s hard to tell what’s real nowadays.
When you have a couple like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on one side then look over and see a Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith you can do nothing but laugh at the gap. When comparing Kutcher and Kunis to a couple, the one that comes to mind is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. I know they are recently separated but that was one I thought would go on forever. But, where they went wrong and so many others is where I believe and hope Kutcher and Kunis thrives.
Hollywood and everyday life are two separate worlds. In the real world we fight for love, in Hollywood they let it walk away. Let’s hope the Kutcher and Kunis have more real life in them than Hollywood. I’m rooting for them.
