It’s an unexpected, but welcomed friendship.
Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren have sparked an unexpected friendship with one of the most beloved couples in Hollywood, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis.
Sitting down with his label, Big Machine Label Group, Rhett shares that he and Lauren hit it off with the A-list couple after he met Kutcher during a performance at Stagecoach Festival. Kutcher is a yearly attendee and sets up camp for the duration of the four-night event. One year, he and Kunis were attending together when they crossed paths with Rhett, and the actor invited he and Lauren to spend time with them outside of the festival.
“And I remember him and his wife Mila Kunis, which is crazy, invited me and Lauren to dinner one night in L.A.. And we’re sitting there going, ‘Are we seriously about to go to dinner with them?'” Rhett expresses.
A longtime fan of the That 70s Show actor, Rhett admits that he and Lauren went into the dinner cautiously, hoping their perception of the famed actors wouldn’t be shattered getting to know them on a personal basis. But the country singer ensures that the pair are as down-to-earth as fans would hope.
“Before we walked in we’re like crossing our fingers like ‘please be as cool as we think you are,'” he says, “And we walked in and just immediately hit it off and we’ve gotten to become decently close with them. But I never in a million years would’ve dreamed that one of my favorite actors would have been a fan of mine without ever meeting him before.”
Kutcher has shown his support for country music over the years, between presenting at the ACM Awardsand CMT Music Awards and joining Rhett onstage during a show in his home state of Iowa in 2016, singing Garth Brooks‘ “Friends in Low Places.”
Rhett is slated to release his new album, Center Point Road, on May 31.
