While Natalie Portman is getting married and expecting a baby with Benjamin Millepied , her “Black Swan” co-star Mila Kunis is back on the market. Kunis and her longtime boyfriend, Macaulay Culkin, have officially split.
“The split was amicable, and they remain close friends,” Kunis’ rep told the New York Post’s Page Six about the breakup. The duo began dating in 2002, when Kunis was starring on “That ’70s Show.” According to a Post source, “The couple split some time ago but has kept it low-key while Kunis promotes the movie.”
Back in 2009, in an interview with BlackBook, Kunis shared her reservations about marriage. “Not to say that I don’t believe in it, but it’s just not something that’s important to me,” she explained. “But I will have children. I’m too selfish to have them now, but when I do, I don’t feel like I need to be married. I need to have a person in my life who will care for me and my children — nothing else.”
In the same interview, Kunis opened up about dating Culkin, noting, “I don’t remember being single. I love coming home, taking a bath and having a glass of wine. I love my life.”
The Golden Globe-nominated actress made it clear that right now her focus is on her revitalized acting career. “I don’t know that I could do Shakespeare, but I don’t know that I couldn’t. It’s like ballet. Did I ever think I could get en pointe and be a prima ballerina? No. But, give me two months,” Kunis said. “I will work my ass off and do everything in my power to get it done.”
