Ashton Kutcher honored his wife Mila Kunis as one of Time 100‘s Most Influential people of 2022 — with self-deprecating jokes, of course. From world leaders and business pioneers to musicians and actors, Kunis made the cut alongside Simu Liu, Adele, Oprah Winfrey, Zendaya, Amanda Seyfried, Pete Davidson and more.
Mila’s tribute was written by Zoe Saldaña, who said of the actress, “There’s this old-soul quality you receive from Mila Kunis the moment you meet her. She gives 100% to each and every one of her roles: as a mother, as a wife, as a daughter, as a granddaughter, as a friend, as a producer, as an actor. She goes all in, and she cares a great deal. I’ve seen her transform when she’s approaching a character—whilst still being the mom who drops off the kids. She’s such a curious individual, hungry for conversations that are important, that are thought-provoking.”
“Mila has always been proud of who she is and where she comes from, and the sacrifices that her family made for her and her brother to come to America,” the note continues. “She’s also been very aware of what it must have been for her parents and grandparents and great-grandparents to have left it all behind. As daughters of immigrants, you understand that you stand in a certain box that makes you quite responsible very early in life. It is a mission and a responsibility and a blessing. Seeing her fundraise for Ukraine and raise tens of millions: it’s what we have come to expect the Kutcher-Kunis clan to do, to always rise to the occasion. What needs to be done? They will take it upon themselves, they will initiate anything and everything in their power to be of service.”
In response to his wife’s honor, Ashton, 44, tweeted to Time magazine on Monday (May 23) to directly ask why they would reward his wife with such an enviable title. “Dear Time magazine,” Ashton wrote to the publication. “I already lose every argument I have with my wife. You just had to do this didn’t you?”

In the replies, someone asked whether Mila’s new achievement would be getting framed and displayed in their household, to which Ashton responded, “just on my mirror.”
