Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis won't leave any of their $265m fortune for their kids, plan to donate to charities
'No Strings Attached' actor Ashton Kutcher said, 'If my kids want to start a business, and they have a good business plan, I’ll invest in it'.
Hollywood Power couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have joined the list of celebrities who will not be leaving their inheritance to their children.
The couple who got married in July 2015 has two children: Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, 5, and Dimitri Portwood Kutcher, 3. During an episode of Dax Shephard's podcast, Armchair Expert, Kutcher shared that he would not set up any trust funds for his children. The 'That 70s Show' actor shared, "My kids are living a really privileged life, and they don’t even know it".
"And they’ll never know it because this is the only one that they’ll know. I’m not setting up a trust for them. We’ll end up giving our money away to charity and to various things," he added. Kutcher went on to share that even though he would consider investing his children's potential business plans, he would not be handing them piles of money for no reason.
"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. So, hopefully, they’ll be motivated to have what they had or some version of what they had," Kutcher revealed.
Kutcher has a net worth of $200 million while his wife is worth around $65 million, this brings their combined net worth to $265 million.
The pair are planning on leaving the majority of their wealth to several charities including anti-sex trafficking causes of which Kutcher is a major supporter. Other celebrities such as Bill and Melinda Gates and Gordon and Tana Ramsay have also refused to hand over their entire wealth to their children.
Back in 2017, while giving an interview to Entertainment Tonight, Mila Kunis had revealed that she and her husband had introduced a "no presents for the kids" Christmas rule as they said that over-gifting was a bit "too much" and led to ingratitude. "The kid (Wyatt) no longer appreciates the one gift. They don’t even know what they’re expecting; they’re just expecting stuff," she shared.
She also added that the children's grandparents were allowed to offer the kids one gift per child.
