The multi-millionaire actress, who is married to fellow Hollywood star Ashton Kutcher, said she couldn’t resist it when she saw the price tag of the simple silver ring on Etsy and snapped up the bargain offer.
Presenter Conan O'Brien interviewed the frugal beauty on his TBS show Conan on Wednesday and declared Mila was cool for opting for the understated bling.
He said: “Now, listen: I’ve been talking to you for years and I’ve always loved the fact that you’re frugal. You’re very up front about that.”
And Mila joked: "That’s a nice way of saying ‘cheap,’ but yes!”
The 32-year-old actress, who has 21-month-old daughter, Wyatt Kutcher with Ashton, pictured below, further explained: “I can’t believe that I’m telling anybody this story. So, my husband and I got married a little while ago. He got me a beautiful engagement ring. Like, stunning, stunning, stunning! But for our wedding bands—for when we got married—I decided to just get them off of Etsy.”
She added: “I wanted the thinnest possible platinum band. I mean, you can’t see it, but it’s super, super thin.”
Mila turned to Etsy because she was so shocked at the cost of rings at Tiffany & Co., saying: “I was like, 'They’re how much? This is astronomical. So, I went on Etsy and I was like, ’$90?’ I was like, 'Buy now!’ Ashton’s was $100, so technically his wedding band was a little bit more expensive.
My engagement ring is beautiful, but I don’t ever wear it. This ring, I’m like, 'It’s $90!’ It’s great. That person on Etsy had no clue whose ring they were making, but they were wonderful and very nice and polite and generous.”
Meanwhile, Mila - who most recently starred in rom-com Bad Moms - is expecting her second child and confessed she has no idea what stage her pregnancy is at because she wants to take a relaxed experience this time around.
She said: “I feel really good. With the first one, there were these apps where you could check daily to see the size of your baby based on fruit. So, 'Oh, today my baby’s the size of guava,’ or a banana, or avocado.’ And I did it, like, every day. I couldn’t even tell you how far along I am right now. I’m like, 'I don’t know. A couple months?’ I genuinely don’t know how far along I am.
“I’m like, 'Somewhere between this and that.’ With the first one, I would tell you the exact [date]. I mean, like, literally to the T what was happening, the formation of the eyes, the tail’s no longer there. Like, whatever it was. [Now] I have no clue what’s happening with my baby.”
