In the past two weeks, the world has seen harrowing incidents take place in Ukraine, with over 150,000 people fleeing from their homes and moving to neighboring countries. A lot of celebrities and big names have joined in to help Ukrainians.
A few days ago, superstar couple and Hollywood sweethearts Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively played their part by announcing that they’d match every $1 donated towards Ukraine up to $1 million. Among the celebrities who are voicing their opinions, Ashton Kutcher spoke up about standing with Ukraine.
Posting a simple tweet on his official account, Ashton Kutcher wrote:
Ashton Kutcher is married to Hollywood superstar Mila Kunis, originally from Ukraine. In 1983, Mila Kunis was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine. She and her family moved to Los Angeles, USA, in 1991 when Mila was 7-years-old.
In a conversation with The Los Angeles Times, Mila opened up about how the move was initially difficult for her:
“…my parents wanted my brother and me to have a future, and so they just dropped everything. They came with $250.”
“Ultimately, I adjusted fairly quickly and fairly well,”
“But it must have been hard, because I blocked out second grade completely. I have no recollection of it. I always talk to my mom and my grandma about it. It was because I cried every day. I didn’t understand the culture. I didn’t understand the people. I didn’t understand the language. My first sentence of my essay to get into college was like, ‘Imagine being blind and deaf at age seven.’ And that’s kind of what it felt like moving to the States. But I got over it pretty fast.”
We hope the conditions in Ukraine become better and people can peacefully go back to living their lives.
