Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis plan to keep relationship 'private'

mila-kunis-ashton-kutcher-2013-gi.jpgDon't expect Ashton Kutcher's relationship with Mila Kunis to be an open book along the lines of his marriage to Demi Moore.

Kutcher reveals in the new issue of Elle magazine that he's determined to do things differently this time: "You know, I've learned the hard way how valuable privacy is," he says in an interview. "And I've learned that there are a lot of things in your life that really benefit from being private. And relationships are one of them. And I am going to do everything in my power to have this relationship [with Kunis] be private."

Elle suggests one of the lessons Kutcher learned came from the 22-year-old who sold a story to the tabloids about her affair with the actor during his marriage to Moore. "When you become well known, you start to have suspicions about people's intentions that you're becoming close with," Kutcher says. "Because I think there's been an artificial value that's been put on fame in the world -- people don't want to do something. They just want to be famous. And so I think you develop a natural suspicion of that."

"And, you know," he continues. "I have a little bit of naivete about trusting people -- with the notion that if you share and if you give to people, they'll respect your privacy in turn. Unfortunately, that's not the case."

As for the relationship with Kunis, and whether or not it's been slowly building since their days as "That '70s Show" co-stars, Kutcher simply says: "People will fill in the blanks however they want."
