The ‘That 70s’ Show’ actors have revealed why they won’t be setting up trust funds anytime soon for their children

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ decision to not leave their children with trust funds has continued to spark debate among social media users.

As of 2024, Kutcher has a net worth of a cool $200 million and Kunis $75 million meaning they have a combined wealth of around $275 million, as per Celebrity Net Worth. However, whenever the day comes where they both no longer reside on Earth, the couple’s children won’t be receiving any sort of trust fund. Unlucky.

In an interview with Dax Shepard on his podcast Armchair Expert in 2018, Kutcher explained the couple’s children Isabelle and Dimitri won’t be having ‘a trust set up for them’.

Instead, the actors are planning on donating their money to charity and ‘to various’ things.

Although, Kutcher added: “If my kids want to start a business, and they have a good business plan, I’ll invest in it. But they’re not getting trusts.”

While his remarks were made several years ago, Kutcher’s comments regularly resurface on social media, particularly when the discussion of who is and who isn’t a nepo baby rears its head.

And Kutcher and Kunis’ decision surrounding their finances continues to leave people divided.

One X user said: “There was a time when families sought to build dynasties, one generation building on the accomplishments of the last.

“Now everyone is an atomic unit, valuable only in so far as it serves the consumerist machine. And your children? Do not spoil them lest they become worse workers.”

Another shared: “Instead, they will leave their fortune to spoiled and entitled CEOs of nonprofits.”

In a 2017 interview with Elle UK, Kunis also opened up about raising her children and how she doesn’t want them to become spoiled despite their affluent upbringing.

The Bad Moms actor said her main priority is to ensure they don’t evolve into ‘a**holes’.

“There’s enough a**holes in this world! We don’t need to contribute. But, you know, there’s some nice people,” she told the outlet.

As a result, Kutcher and Kunis didn’t even gift their children presents at Christmas time.

“We’re instituting [no presents] this year because when the kids are [younger than] one, it doesn’t really matter. Last year when we celebrated Christmas, Wyatt was two, and it was too much. We didn’t give her anything — it was the grandparents,” she said.

She even told her parents they had to limit presents to one gift.

“‘We’re begging you — if you have to give her something, pick one gift. Otherwise, we’d like to take a charitable donation to the Children’s Hospital or a pet [or] whatever you want,'” Kunis said.

So, what do you think?
