Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have become the topic of discussion on social media after their old podcast episode resurfaced in which they discussed their plans to donate their children’s entire inheritance to charity. The couple, who share two children, explained that they don’t want to leave behind an inheritance for their kids, as they want them to learn how to stand on their own two feet. Kutcher explained that while he and Kunis love their children, they want them to figure it out for themselves and not grow up spoiled or entitled, Insider reports.
Although this is not the first time the couple has made such comments, their views have ignited a debate online amid the ongoing nepotism discussion. The couple has always been involved in philanthropic activities, including actively supporting Ukrainians affected by the Ukraine-Russia war. However, the discussion of leaving nothing to their children has caused controversy and received mixed reactions from people on social media.
Kutcher and Kunis’s podcast episode was recorded in 2018, but the resurfacing of the comments has gained attention recently. The couple has previously said that they will not set up a trust for their children but would offer financial support if they want to start a business. Kutcher added that they hope to inspire their children to have the motivation to have what they had or some version of it.
The couple’s decision to leave nothing to their children, who are currently living a privileged life, sparked discussions about the impact of inherited wealth and the importance of teaching children the value of hard work and earning their own money. While some people have praised the couple for their stance, others have criticized their decision, stating that they are being unfair to their children.

People in the quotes upset as if their children won’t get access to the best resources and opportunities possible to make a great life for themselves. You won’t need your parents money if they provide what’s needed for you to work a career or start your own business. https://t.co/UKuxzecRzL
