Mila Kunis's Response to Her 'Anti-Gift' Controversy Is Proof She's Not a 'Sucker'

Remember the controversy earlier this month when Mila Kunis admitted she's not into Christmas gifts, which made the earth stand still? Folks who neither pay her bills nor personally wish the "bad mom" season's greetings were clutching their pearls to the point of suffocation. Welp, Mila is now clarifying her "anti-gifts" remarks, and it could have you taking a sigh of relief or readying your social media pitchforks to come for this celeb mama (again).


The 34-year-old mom of two (Mila and husband Ashton Kutcher share 3-year-old daughter Wyatt and 11-month-old son Dimitri) opened up about all things holiday during a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her film A Bad Moms Christmas -- which could double as suitable tagline should you disagree with her.

When guest host Shaquille O'Neal asked Mila whether or not it's true she doesn't buy her kids Christmas gifts, the actress responded with one simple word: "False."

"Of course [I do]," Kunis responds. "I'm not like anti-gifts. I just don't over-gift my child," she clarifies.

Mila continues:

"I give them presents. I'm not like anti-gifts. They get so many wonderful gifts from my family, and from my husband's family, that he and I literally give [Wyatt] one present. I know that story got taken out of control."

As far as Mila and Ashton's 11-month-old goes, Mila says "he gets boob and he's fine."

The celeb mom also turned the tables on Shaq, asking the former NBA star what he gives his six children.

"," O'Neal playfully answers.

"You don't, do you?" Kunis responds in amazement. "You do! You're such a sucker!"

So, there ya have it: Mila Kunis isn't "anti-gift," but also doesn't believe in giving her children tons of stuff and everything they want. She doesn't feel suckered into meeting every demand and seems to have a routine that works for her family (#letthegrandparentshandleit).

And honestly, who can blame her?
