So it wouldn’t be crazy to think that both Ashton and his wife Mila Kunis who are longtime friends of the actress, were told the exciting news about her engagement to Ben Foster before it was released to the press.
Turns out, that wasn’t the case. Laura kept her engagement a secret from everyone – including her friends!
Ashton revealed just how surprised he was about his friend’s engagement during an episode of Live With Kelly, in which the Orange Is the New Black actress was guest on. He told the audience, “She just announced this engagement and I had to find out on the news, and she’s my friend and it’s weird like that.”
“By the way, it’s not a random engagement. It’s an engagement to another friend of mine. So I’m double upset that neither of them told me,” he continued to say.
So when the two actually came face to face, Ashton greeted his longtime friend by saying, “I love you, but I am so [upset with] you. Pre, Pre...this is unacceptable! This kind of thing is unacceptable!”
To which the actress responded, “I know! But if anyone understands the private lives, you get it!”
Ashton then followed up by jokingly saying, “Oh, I get it. But private lives include friends! Like, I shouldn’t find out when I get off the plane!”
Luckily all was forgiven rather quickly, and the two continued on with their hilarious interview. Though it’s pretty surprising to hear that Laura and Ben kept their engagement so private that none of their friends suspected it at all.
