When a false tabloid story hits, some celebrities choose to ignore it. Others issue denials through their reps, or arrange a paparazzi moment that will show they're still in love or not pregnant. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher tried something a little different: They personally responded to a cover story that stated they broke up in a video, going through every detail of the story with mock shock and a lot of sarcasm.

Kutcher wrote in his Instagram caption, "I guess it’s over @intouchweekly have fun selling magazines this week. Maybe next week my wife will be having twins. For the third time. But who’s counting.

In the video, they went back and forth over the story, with Kunis holding up a screenshot of it on her phone.

"Babe, what’s happening? What’s going on?" Kutcher started.

"It’s over between us," Kunis responded.

"It’s over between us?" Kutcher incredulously asked.

"Yeah," Kunis replied.

"Oh my god, what are we going to do?" Kutcher asked.

"I felt suffocated," Kunis stated, deadpan.

"You felt suffocated by me? Oh, I was just so overbearing, wasn’t I?" Kutcher asked.


"What else is going on?" Kutcher interjected.

"I took the kids," Kunis said flatly.

"Oh, you took the kids. I don’t get the kids anymore?" Kutcher asked.

"Well, you had a very dark secret exposed," Kunis said.

"Oh my gosh, what was the dark secret?"

"I don’t know. I only have this photo," Kunis said, holding up the screenshot of the cover on her phone.

"Must have been really dark," Kutcher finished.

Demi Lovato was a huge fan of the entire thing, by the way. She commented on their Instagram video, which has gotten over 1 million views so far. "This is amazing. Miss y’all 💗," she wrote.
