It was 1998 and a then unknown Mila Kunis didn’t quite know what to make of the news that she would have her first real kiss on camera with Ashton Kutcher, a model turned actor whom she’d only just met.
“I was like, ‘Oh, he’s so cute, it’s the Calvin Klein model!’ ” the actress told PEOPLE in 2001. “Then I was like, ‘I have to kiss him?’ I was so nervous and uncomfortable. I had the biggest crush on him.”
Kunis, who at the time was costarring with Kutcher on That ’70s Show, spritzed herself with perfume the producers gave her to help mask her nerves. “I totally perfumed myself and I was like, ‘Hey, I feel better about myself,’ ” she said.
But the way Kutcher remembered the scene, he was the one who was sweating.
