James Corden’s The Late, Late Show will definitely launch with a bang if reports of Mila Kunis’s revelation on the debut episode are true. After months of speculation on her marital status with Ashton Kutcher, the Jupiter Ascending actress showed her wedding ring to the audience.
The source revealed to American magazine Us Weekly that Mila and James “were just joking around”, and the source admitted that Mila “is not married.”
On Monday, reports suggested that British comedian James has asked Mila if she and Ashton had tied the knot, to which she coyly replied, “Maybe”. James then persisted to say: “Either you’re married or you’re not,” only for the 31-year-old to reply with another non-committal “Maybe”.
After Mila continued to avoid the question, James tried another tactic and asked her to show her wedding ring finger to the audience, which indeed had a ring on it.
“They are married, look,” James declared after the big reveal – although Mila never confirmed that the ring was a wedding band.
Mila and Ashton first sparked rumours that they were already married in December, when Mila was spotted wearing what appeared to be a wedding ring when the pair headed out for a basketball date.
Two and a Half Men actor Ashton then further fuelled the rumours when he posted a Happy New Year message to fans that was signed from The Kutchers.
If the two had married, their secrecy would not have been a surprise to their fans; Mila previously told W magazine that she wanted to keep her wedding private. “I never wanted to get married. From the age of 12, I prepared my parents for no marriage,” the actress said. “Then things changed – I found the love of my life.
“Now my theory on weddings is: Don’t invite anyone. Do it privately and secretly. My parents are ok with that. They’re just excited that I said yes.”
During the interview, James’s first as the host of The Late Late Show, Mila, a mother-of-one, also revealed that she was already “thinking about baby number two," after the birth of daughter Wyatt Isabelle in September.
