That's what they'll tell them, at least, Kunis says.

The actress said on Australian podcast "The Kyle and Jackie O Show" that she and her husband want their children to understand the value of a dollar.

"The one topic of conversation we had even prior to ever having kids was always, 'How do you raise a child to not be an a**hole?'" she said. "It's so important because we both came from pretty solid poverty backgrounds and grew up very poor and are very much self-made and are very aware of what a dollar is worth. Nothing's been handed to us."

The pregnant Hollywood star said she will explain to daughter Wyatt Isabelle and her younger sibling that they're not necessarily entitled to the money their parents earned.

"It's a matter of teaching them from a very early age that, you know, 'Mommy and Daddy may have a dollar, but you're poor,'" she jokes. "'You are very poor, you have nothing. Mommy and Daddy have a bank account.'"
