Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis played one of the most iconic couples known to man on the binge-watch-worthy That '70s Show years before they started up their own real-life romance. In fact, Kunis was only 15 years old when she had her first kiss (on-screen, no less) with now-hubby Kutcher. You could say it skewed more towards awkwardness than it did romance, at least according to a recent interview Kutcher had with Howard Stern.

"I was 19, she was, like, 14," the Two and a Half Men star explained on the radio talk show. "Yeah, I did her chemistry homework for her. I think I was her first kiss, like, on the show. We have our first kiss memorialized on a TV show!"

As for how he was feeling about those steamy, on-screen kisses? Well, pretty criminal, TBH. "It was really weird. I was like, 'Isn't this illegal? Like, can I—am I allowed? It was really awkward because I'm, like, a 19-year-old kid."

Because of the age difference, Kutcher didn't really have much of a physical attraction to her. "She was 14! She was like my little sister. I wanted to make sure she was OK." But the same can't be said about Kunis. According to her husband, she had a huge crush on him at the time. "She has, like, a journal or, like, a diary from when she was a kid where she wrote, 'Oh, this guy's hot.' She thought I was cute!"

When it came to their first IRL kiss though, things were definitely a little more romantic than the first time around. Kunis was invited to Kutcher's new bachelor pad for a housewarming party, and right away the chemistry was palpable. "I think I was smoking cigarettes at the time and I was still a smoker," Kutcher said. "And she had quit smoking and she was like, she wanted me to, like, shotgun cigarette smoke so she could breathe it in, and I was like, 'All right.' And gradually through the night, it got closer and closer and closer."

We see you, Kunis!
