Chick Thief? Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher's Hilarious Response to Chicken Lawsuit

Pin It
For celebrities, life isn't always Prada, peaches and cream. Believe it or not, there's a rather strange side to fame that can quickly take them from the good life to la vida loca (minus Ricky Martin and his sexy background dancers). In addition to landing on the worst-dressed list or fending off a paparazzi pursuit, celebrities are often subjected to ridiculously oddball lawsuits. Just ask Mila Kunis, who was named in a $5,000 lawsuit filed by Ukraine singer Kristina Karo (she coincidentally just released this music video), who claims the actress stole her pet chicken Doggie 25 years ago, when the pair were friends in first grade.

Um, OK.

Apparently, there's no one giving this lawsuit a more serious side-eye than Mila and her husband Ashton Kutcher. But far be it from them to get their feathers ruffled over the decades-old chicken thievery grudge. In fact, the couple responded to the suit by posting a hilarious video that cleverly mocks - er, addresses the complainant's suit.

In the clip, Mila flexes her acting muscles with an over-the-top, dramatic statement on the lawsuit. "I was devastated," she said. "I was weeping. I was dumbfounded."

Who wouldn't be completely devastated by receiving notice of such a weird lawsuit? Oh, wait-there wasn't any actual notice (in terms of papers being served), at least according to Mila, who declares that instead, she's been "emotionally served."

Sheesh, it's hard out here for a celebrity. While theft is certainly a serious matter (especially when it involves someone's pet), we can't help but appreciate how Mila and Ashton kept it lighthearted with a response that's basically plays out like a husband-and-wife comedy skit.
