We are almost a year into the COVID pandemic and if you’re a parent, you’re probably struggling to figure out new ways to entertain your kid. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher share your pain, so much so that Kunis decided to take their son Dimitri Portwood, 4, and daughter Wyatt Isabelle, 6, to a “baby rave.”
Kunis told the story of her family trip to a drive-thru kid-friendly rave on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and she revealed that, at first, Kutcher was not at all on board with the idea. After all, children and raves typically do not go together.
“I was like, ‘Don’t worry about it — I got this,’ ” she said. “I took my 4-year-old and my 6-year-old and my grown-ass husband to a baby rave.”
While the idea sounded great in her mind, Kunis admits that once she got there, she wondered if the whole experience was a little too authentic to what a real rave is like.
“It was like, lights everywhere, music,” the Bad Moms actress recalled. “It was physically put on by a rave company. You felt like you were tripping on acid. They gave you these glasses [that] crystallize everything and make the lights all crazy.”
Fortunately for Kunis and Kutcher, the kids seemed to have a great time, as she told Kimmel they said it was “the best experience ever!” But despite her kids’ enjoyment, Kunis joked that she was prepared to face the consequences that might come with bringing children to a rave, even one specifically made for kids.
“Child protective services is allowed to come after me, it’s okay. I understand,” she said.
The biggest complaint from Kunis was the amount of traffic they experienced getting to the baby rave, followed by hours of sitting in the car at the actual event, which may explain why she called it “one of the worst [and] greatest things I’ve ever done.”
