In a surprise announcement, Hollywood power couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have revealed their plans for their inheritance, stating that it will not be passed down to their children but instead will go towards humanitarian causes.
No Trust Fund for the Kids
For years, the couple has been open about their stance on inheritance, with Kutcher previously stating, "I'm not setting up a trust for them. We'll end up giving our money away to charity and to various things." The actor went on to explain that he and Kunis want to raise their children, eight-year-old daughter Wyatt and six-year-old son Dimitri, without a sense of entitlement, despite their privileged upbringing.
However, Kutcher made a concession, saying, "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."
The Social Media Reactions
The couple's decision not to leave an inheritance has sparked reactions on social media, with some users calling for them to reconsider and leave some money for their children, while others have joked about the situation.
One user tweeted, "Imagine being lucky enough to be born into wealth and your parents tell you 'WE'RE rich, not you.' lmao." Singer-songwriter Chioma also weighed in on the Hollywood nepotism debate, tweeting, "Honestly that's so sad to be the only rich kids missing out on nepo money." Despite the various opinions expressed on social media, Kutcher and Kunis remain firm in their decision, choosing to raise their children to be self-sufficient and giving back to society through their philanthropic endeavors.
As private individuals, Kutcher and Kunis rarely share photos of their children and keep their family life out of the spotlight. However, the couple has been known to talk about their family life on social media and in interviews.
