On Super Bowl Sunday, the couple will star in a Cheetos commercial. In a new chat, Mila hilariously said one of the main reasons she and her husband signed on to do the commercial was to just get away from daughter Wyatt and son Dimitri for a few hours.
"It's so silly! Ashton and I, we never work together," she told Entertainment Tonight. "I mean, I know we worked together before … And in the midst of quarantine, they sent us this ad to do and every time I've ever been offered a Super Bowl ad it's always a female having to be scantily clad."
Mila, though, looked at this particular commercial and thought everything was perfect, including the timing.
"I started laughing so hard and Ashton was like, 'This is kind of funny.' And I was like, 'We should do it!'" she recalled. "Also it was quarantine and we were stuck with our children for nine, 12, months at this moment, and I was like, 'Two days, baby! Two days off.'"
"Literally we were like, 'Yeah, OK, let's do it,'" she said. "And so we did it. And I hate saying it but we were like, 'Freedom!'… It was amazing!"
Although Ashton and Mila, who previously starred on "That '70s Show," were thrilled with their decision, Wyatt and Dimitri weren't as excited.
"[I've] never been so excited to wake up at five in the morning to be like, 'I'm going to work!' And I literally skipped out of the house," Mila said. "My kids were like, 'You're abandoning us!' And I was like, 'Relax.'"
