Mila Kunis has been seen spending time with her former "That '70s Show" co-star Ashton Kutcher lately, sparking a healthy bout of rumors that the two might be more than just friends.
Kunis, however, finds the online chatter to be "absurd," as she told "Extra" while at CinemaCon.
Officially shooting down the rumors that she and Demi Moore’s ex-husband have been hooking up, the 28-year-old actress added, "A friend is a friend.”
Speculation about the pair has been fueled by recent reports of the actors taking a weekend trip together, reportedly doing some furniture shopping, dining out, and even possibly hanging out late at night at Kutcher’s home.
But People magazine cites a source close to Kutcher who has also shut down the idea of an alleged romance.
"They're both single, having fun,” the source told the publication. “There's nothing serious going on - just friends having fun."
But it's been said that the “Two and a Half Men” actor has reportedly been crushing on his buddy Kunis for years - ever since they worked together on the now-defunct Fox sitcom.
"He was so in love with her for a while when they worked together," another source claimed to the magazine. "He thought she was a goddess, was always talking about how beautiful she is. But she was with Macaulay [Culkin] for a lot of that time and also just generally gave off a not interested vibe.”
Hmm... perhaps that vibe's still going strong.
