Despite being Hollywood superstars who could afford to buy anything for their children Ashton and Mila made a deal last year not to lavish gifts on their kids, and that's the deal this year too in their bid to avoid raising "a**holes".
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actress explained that they have chose to stop giving their daughter Wyatt, 3, and son Dimitri, 2, gifts on Christmas so that they do not get focused on the commercial aspect of the holiday.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have a new Christmas tradition. A year ago when we celebrated Christmas, Wyatt was 2 and it was too much. "They don't even know what they're expecting; they're just expecting stuff", she explains.
"So far, our tradition is no presents for the kids", the That '70s Show alum told Entertainment Tonight. "That's our new tradition".
The Bad Moms star said it was the children's grandparents that go wild over Christmas presents and who like to spoil them. "Because I've already done it once and the kid doesn't resent me, so I was like, 'OK, I think I can do this". Now, the actress celebrates the festive season with her husband Ashton Kutcher and their two children, but the family has chosen to make its own traditions. "So, I being Jewish, was like, 'Christmas is not for you'".
But while she has it down pat now, in an interview with TODAY, Kunis admitted that it was very different the first time around. "There are enough assholes in the world and don't want to contribute to" loose the darling of Ashton Kutcher, although wishing to show his children the value of money. "We literally bought a Christmas tree". "You're still stressed out and there's still the idea of the guilt of leaving your kids, but you know that they'll be OK".
Kunis's next big role is the sequel to Bad Moms, 'A Bad Mom's Christmas, due to hit American screens this November.
