Earlier this month, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis made headlines for revealing that the couple does not take showers often and claimed there was “no point” in bathing their children unless they were visibly dirty.
The couple is now poking fun at themselves and the controversy in general on social media. Kutcher shared a video clip of Kunis giving their children a bath, during which he jokingly feigns concern over her motives and methods.
In the post, which has been played 8.8 million times, Kunis and Kutcher stand in a bathroom with their kids as water can be heard running in the background. “It’s water,” Kunis tells Kutcher, who’s filming the video.
“You’re putting water on the children? Are you trying to melt them? Are you trying to injure them with water? This is ridiculous. What’s going on?” Kutcher yells. “We’re bathing our children,” Kunis said. “That’s like the fourth time this week! Four times this week! Their body oils are going to be destroyed! What are you trying to do?” Kutcher said in a sarcastic tone. “It’s too much,” Kunis says in response.

Kutcher’s Instagram post came just a few weeks after the actors admitted to bathing their children infrequently on the “Armchair Expert” podcast, hosted by Dax Shepard and Monica Padman.
“I don’t wash my body with soap every day. I wash pits and tits and slits and holes and soles,” said Kunis. Kutcher added: “I wash my armpits and my crotch daily, and nothing else ever. I got a bar of Lever 2000 that just delivers every time. Nothing else.”
Kunis, who moved to the US from Ukraine aged seven, explained that she didn’t have hot water growing up so she just didn’t shower as often. Now an adult, she still does not shower and she doesn’t even wash their children. She added: “When I had children, I also didn’t wash them every day. I wasn’t the parent that bathed my newborns – ever.”
