Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have been together for nearly two decades, but they learn more about each other each day, they say—especially amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. According to Entertainment Tonight, the couple gave a virtual interview on Live with Kelly and Ryan to share how they've been coping with isolation, explaining that they've been leaning on each other's strengths during this difficult period. "I'm a fast song to put it nicely. And he's the calming force in my life where every time I veer off," Mila told the hosts. "I just go to the worst possible place and he's very reliable."

The actress went on to share that Ashton helps her find the lightness during dark times. "Here's why I think it works, because I think you find my neurosis fun and funny and non-judgmental," she said. Ashton's simple response? "It's called love. I love you," he noted.

Ashton was just as complimentary of his wife, noting that she's juggling these new pressures—like balancing homeschooling their children with her career—with grace, something he struggles with. "I'm a focus-on-one-thing-at-a-time type of person," he said. "I can only have one drawer open in life. Mila can have 12 drawers open at the same time and somehow manages the whole thing. I have to go to a closet to get my work done so the kids aren't zooming through, but she can be teaching the kid how to ride a bike, while cooking, while on a producer call at the same time and somehow pull it all off. I don't know how you do that. It's even more amazing than I knew."

Mila, however, says Ashton is the home-school tour de force in their household: "I am not a good teacher. I clearly don't have that skill set, but my husband is fantastic at it," she said. "I think that's something I've learned about you—although you've always been good at explaining things, so I guess that's understandable."
