Kutcher is the chairman of Thorn, an organisation that develops technology to combat child sexual exploitation around the world.
Actor and human rights campaigner Ashton Kutcher has given emotional testimony in front of the U.S. Senate this week, urging lawmakers to act in support of efforts to bring child sexual exploitation to an end.
Speaking in his capacity as the chairman of Thorn, an organisation that develops software to help locate victims of abuse, the 39 year old actor told the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee in Washington on Wednesday (February 15th) that it was time for “society and government” to defend vulnerable people.

Sheen also had some strong words for ‘Two And a Half Men’ creator Chuck Lorre.
Never one for shying away from controversy, Charlie Sheen gave a bizarre interview to an Australian radio station this morning, where he took credit for Woody Harrelson’s entire career and called out Chuck Lorre, again.
But perhaps more surprisingly, Sheen had some kind words for Ashton Kutcher, the actor who replaced him after he was fired from sitcom ‘Two And a Half Men’.

Bad Moms star Mila Kunis is awaiting the arrival of her second child with husband Ashton Kutcher, but that hasn't stopped the actress from thinking about baby number three.

While playing 'Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts', Corden asked Kunis: 'carrot stick or beer can?'
Bad Moms actresses Mila Kunis and Christina Applegate were forced to make some difficult choices when they both appeared on James Corden’s ‘The Late Late Show’, as the host invited them to play a game of his invention, ‘Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts’.
Essentially, it was a game of truth or dare, in which the participants had to answer questions about themselves or the other person, or consume an unusual food or drink item. By unusual, we mean things like: ghost pepper hot sauce, cow tongue, sardines, grasshoppers, calf's brain, pickle juice and clam juice...
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher out and about in Los Angeles
Kunis and Kutcher are already parents to 20 month old daughter Wyatt, and they're set to expand their family once again.
The 32 year old actress, who is next appearing in the comedy movie Bad Moms in July, is pregnant with her second child, People magazine claimed on Wednesday (June 15th). She and her husband, 38 year old actor Ashton Kutcher, are already parents to 20 month old daughter Wyatt Isabelle.
Later, a representative for Kunis confirmed the happy news to E! Online, with an inside source also adding that they’re very much looking forward to being parents for a second time, and that Kutcher “lights up” when they talk about their children.

Ashton Kutcher's new comedy hasn't struck a chord, but it's worth watching.
Ashton Kutcher has returned to television after his stint on 'Two And A Half Men' with a Netflix Original sitcom called 'The Ranch', which sees him reunite with Danny Masterson - his co-star from 'That '70s Show'. So far, critics have had rather mixed feelings about it.
Ashton Kutcher's new comedy receives mixed reviews
The show sees two brothers named Colt (Kutcher) and Rooster (Masterson) working on a ranch in Colorado, trying to run their business in between making lewd jokes and drinking a lot of beer. It's been described as slightly more bizarre than your average sitcom, and while the cast has generally received a lot of praise, it has largely failed to land many laughs.
Drake was the victim of the hidden camera show back in 2012, and Kutcher remembered the filming when speaking to James Corden on Wednesday.
He may have been there to talk about his new Netflix comedy ‘The Ranch’, but Ashton Kutcher couldn’t help but reminisce about the time he pulled a prank on superstar rapper Drake during a past episode of his MTV show ‘Punk’d’.
The Canadian star was the butt of Kutcher’s secret camera show back in 2012, where he was tricked into believing that he was being picked up by the Secret Service to meet with a politician but, having gotten into the car, encountered a simulated earthquake.

Kutcher and Masterson, on the show to promote new Netflix comedy 'The Ranch', formed 'supergroup' The Puff Daddies with host Corden.
On Wednesday night’s episode of ‘The Late Late Show’, popular host James Corden posed one of life’s great existential questions: what happens to boy bands when they grow up? Time passes, glory and beauty fades, and they become dad bands.
The Brit joined forces with his guests Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson on the NBC chat show to form the ‘dad band’ equivalent of a supergroup: The Puff Daddies. Clad in hoodies and weighed down by fake babies in harnesses, the trio of proud parents grabbed mics and performed a spoof single, ‘I Am A Dad’.

Fake rings and false social media locations were just some of the tricks Kutcher and Kunis resorted to in order to keep their wedding day a secret.
Perfect example – back in March last year, Kunis appeared on James Corden’s ‘The Late Late Show’ and told the presenter, coyly, that she and her former ‘That ‘70s Show’ co-star Kutcher had gotten hitched. However, it was then reported that the couple had tied the knot on the July 4th weekend, with Kunis sporting a fake ring on TV to throw off the scent.
Kutcher appeared on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Wednesday (March 2nd) to provide some more details about the various ploys they used in order to try to ensure privacy on their big day – including fake social media locations.
The 36-year-old actor recently opened up about getting to grips with parenthood while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Ashton Kutcher and his fiancé Mila Kunis welcomed a baby girl into the world in Los Angeles on October 1st, and it already seems the former 'That 70's Show' co-stars are taking to parenthood rather well, especially the first-time mother.

The actress was unseasonably open in a new interview during which she discussed her career and the future.
Mila Kunis isn't one to go blabbing about her personal life to anyone who asks. Therefore, when she does decide to let a little light in on her impending marriage to fellow actor Ashton Kutcher and increasingly obvious pregnancy, people sit up and listen. The 30 year-old mother-to-be opened up during an interview with W Magazine to promote her new movie, Jupiter Ascending.
Reflecting upon her pregnancy, which she first confirmed during a TV interview on Ellen, Kunis demonstrated a deep-seated ire towards the paparazzi and the tabloids for sensationalising her relationship with Ashton and presuming information about her unborn child.
"Every day and every night, the paparazzi are parked outside my house," she said. "Today, I had to drive through the Warner Bros. back lot on my way here, just to throw them off. They want a shot of my stomach because they need proof of my pregnancy. I don't know why they even bother-they've been saying I'm pregnant for years. Now they're right, so they won't leave me alone."
Mila Kunis has a message for future fathers.
Mila Kunis is pregnant. Mila Kunis is opinionated. So when she came on Jimmy Kimmel last night, she had a few choice words in store for Kimmel and expectant fathers everywhere. When Kimmel was interviewing the Friends With Benefits star, he made a pretend slipup. "My wife and I are pregnant," Kimmel said. "We are having a baby very soon as well."

That appears to be Beverly Hills, where Ashton has just snapped up a property for the bargain price of $10 million. The new home has three bedrooms and four bathrooms and offers plenty of privacy.
Should they keep churning it out, or is 12 seasons a good time to say goodbye?
Once the highest rated sitcom on American television, Two and a Half Men is facing the end after 12 seasons. It certainly proved its staying power, surviving a very public meltdown from Charlie Sheen and an equally strange outburst from Angus T. Jones, but it couldn’t survive CBS’ push for younger views.
Ashton Kutcher will have to find something else to fill his time
CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler gave the news on Wednesday during the network's press briefing ahead of its presentation to advertisers.

The actress opens up on life lately.
Mila Kunis has finally given in and discussed her personal life. It has been all but confirmed for some time that she and fellow actor Ashton Kutcher are engaged and expecting a baby together but the couple have kept a low profile and have neither confirmed nor denied the news until now. The 30 year-old Ted star appeared on Ellen where she talked candidly about the secrets she has been hiding.
Mila Kunis Has Finally Agreed To Talk About Her Pregnancy & Engagement.
"Congratulations," Ellen Degeneres said, adding "Now you hid it for a while. I mean, you got away with it for a long time." Kunis admitted "I did. We were actually able to hide it for a very long time. I know. It's amazing." The film star retained some of her secrecy when DeGeneres inquired when she was due to give birth. "Some time this year. I promise you," she teased to laughter. "It will be this year."
How has she not confirmed her pregnancy yet?!
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have been spotted kicking back at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio, California. The 30 year-old actress and mother-to-be looked relaxed in an array of loose-fitting outfits made of very appropriate plaid or denim and she and fiancé Ashton enjoyed the music talent on offer during the weekend event.

The 36 year-old Two and a Half Men actor also made sure he blended in with the crowds by wearing a cowboy hat, denim dungarees, colourful bandanas and casual slogan T-shirts. The pair looked every inch the excited parents and protective Ashton barely left Mila's side as they mingled with the other country music fans.
Sources, speaking to numerous media outlets, are reporting Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are expecting their first child together.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, within weeks of becoming engaged, are reportedly expecting a baby! The news, as reported by E!, has yet to be confirmed by the couple's representatives but a source close to the couple spoke exclusively to the entertainment website. Other sources, speaking to various websites, have also chimed in and Kunis has recently been spotted attending a prenatal yoga class in Los Angeles.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have been spotted enjoying basketball games in L.A. despite pregnancy rumours.

Hold on folks, this isn't over yet.
It might be a coincidence that another part of Lindsay Lohan’s hookup list was released amid reports of falling ratings for her OWN series. Even so, it would be a very convenient way to drum up publicity for Lohan and her televised “journey to recovery”. The new names on the list, revealed by In Touch Weekly aren’t third rate reality studs either.
Lohan has a few reasons to smile - 36 of them, if the list is true.
One of the names on the list – the newly published ones – is Orlando Bloom. Nobody knows when, how and even if the two really hooked up, but that was one reveal that caught us by surprise.

As "Lindsay" ratings drop, Lohan's public ex list grows.
As the ratings for Lindsay Lohan’s “tell all“ OWN docu-series keep dropping, more of the star’s now-infamous list of conquests has been revealed. This is a big one. Apparently Ashton Kutcher – Two and a half Men star and current beau to Mila Kunis – has been revealed as one of Lindsay’s 30+ exes.
A few more dudes, who apparently could not escape Lohan's charm, have been revealed.
After the publication of an abridged version of the list last week, In Touch Weekly chose to keep some of the more well known names private – apparently it was a marketing ploy, designed to whet gossip hounds’ attitudes, because now they’ve come out with a few of the more high-profile names on the infamous list, doodled on a napkin, which then made its way into the media, via some of Lohan’s trigger-happy “friends.”
Mila Kunis is to appear in fiancé Ashton Kutcher's show Two and a Half Men, what other celebrity couples have appeared onscreen together?
Newly engaged Mila Kunis is set to star alongside fiancé Ashton Kutcher in his hit show Two and a Half Men. It’s not the first time that these two have appeared on screen together, having first met playing Jackie and Kelso on That 70’s Show. Jackie and Kelso started out as a couple before breaking up and Jackie then going to date Hyde and Fez, two of the other boys in their group. We wonder if Mila will be a long term addition to the Two and a Half Men cast or whether she’s too busy with her budding movie career to settle for too long on the show?
Mila's engagement ring was visible when the couple attended a basketball match
Ashton and Mila aren’t the only real life couple to appear on screen together as a couple. When Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were still married Brad appeared in FRIENDS, which Jen was then starring in as Rachel Green. However, instead of starring as a couple in the sitcom, Brad appeared as Will Colbert, an old friend of Ross’s with whom he had once established the “I hate Rachel” club. Pitt spent his scenes scowling across the Thanksgiving table at Aniston, although we didn’t mind at the time because we assumed that all was well in their real life paradise.
Mary-Kate Olsen is engaged to French banker, Olivier Sarkozy. Are these two the strangest celebrity couple?
News that Mary-Kate Olsen is engaged to marry Olivier Sarkozy isn’t exactly what you’d call run of the mill. When we first heard that this pair were a ‘thing’ two years ago a collective “eh?” was issued around the world, but we’ve all eaten our words since because here they are, still happily together and headed for the chapel.
Mary-Kate is engaged to French banker, Olivier Sarkozy
At 44, Sarkozy is 17 years older than Olsen, and father to two children, aged 12 and 10. Had Mary-Kate not literally grown up on the screen, this pairing may not have been quite so unusual. We all have a habit of still thinking of the Olsen twins as the cute toddlers in Full House, so to hear that one of them is engaged to be married, and particularly to a man in his forties, is a little hard to digest, although it really shouldn’t be. In the grand scheme of couplings, 17 years is not really that big of an age gap.
With Mila and Ashton rumoured to finally be tining the knot here's how their relationship developed from tv to real life.
We’re thrilled at the reports that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis might be engaged, after all they are Hollywood’s cutest couple. The pair, who have known each other for 16 years, might have taken their time in getting together but they’re proof that good things really do come to those who wait.
Mila and Ashton first met on the set of ‘That 70s Show’ back when they were just two young actors starting out, well Mila was 14 and Ashton was 20 when they auditioned. Mila played Jackie and Ashton played Kelso, a pairing who would become an odd screen couple. While off screen they were just friends, Mila actually had her first kiss with Ashton, as part of the script of course, something Ashton didn't know about at the time. While both have admitted to fancying each during the show’s 8 year run their on screen chemistry didn't turn into an off screen romance. Instead the two actors would find themselves in other high profile relationships.

Are Mila and Ashton engaged for real this time?
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are apparently engaged after the Ted actress was spotted wearing an extravagant engagement-style ring on the right finger with numerous sources confirming the news. Whilst out shopping with her mother in Los Angeles on Thursday, Mila pointedly had her left hand on show, as if to parade her engagement to onlookers and paparazzi.
It Is Strongly Rumoured That Mila Kunis Is Engaged To Ashton Kutcher.
The simple but huge ring glittering on Mila's finger has sparked plenty of speculation over whether she and Ashton are finally ready to make the ultimate commitment. No official announcements have been made yet but E! News claims to have received a confirmation from a source close to the couple that Kutcher did indeed pop the question.

Actor Ashton Kutcher spoke to Jay Leno about his upcoming role in the Steve Jobs biopic, and how he could have met the Apple boss himself six months before his death.
Jobs, the Steve Jobs biopic, has been a long time in the making with its release date continually pushed back to August 2013. Ashton Kutcher landed the titular role and will play the co-founder of tech company Apple who died due to pancreatic cancer in 2011, aged 56. The movie's narrative will chart the story of Steve Jobs' ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century, who brought products such as the iPod and iPhone to market domination. If you haven't seen the uncanny image of Jobs' and Kutcher's faces together, you can find it here courtesy of Digital Spy.
Ashton Kutcher Will Play Steve Jobs In Jobs Biopic.
In an interview with host Jay Leno on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Kutcher discussed his regret that he didn't take up the opportunity to meet the Apple boss before his death, saying "I had an opportunity to meet him about six months before he passed away and I was working that day and couldn't go. In hindsight, I look back and think 'I had an opportunity to meet the Leonardo da Vinci of our generation' and I missed it. That really affected my decision to take on the role. The day that he died, for me it was almost like, I hear people talking about they knew where they were the day Kennedy died. For me I'll never forget the moment I heard he died."

It's a cool idea, but is it enough to save the movie?
How appropriate that the Ashton Kutcher starrer Jobs would be the world’s first movie to release an instagram trailer. Far from your average selfie in the mirror – yes, people do that with the video feature as well – the fifteen second video is a montage of slo-mo shots of Kutcher, set to an inspirational voiceover and dramatic score (no filter). As trailers go, it doesn’t really reveal anything new about the film’s plot or character, though the innovative format would probably fit nicely with the late Steve Jobs’s ethos of innovation.
Kutcher himself is the trailer's main focus.
Considering the fact that the 15-second clip offers no revelations about the movie itself, it doesn’t seem likely that this will become a trend. It certainly won’t replace extended trailers anytime soon. Then again, attention spans are shrinking and a lot of people have said a lot of nice things about the brief clip, so maybe this is the future of cinema? The very, very distant future hopefully.

Steve Jobs founded Apple Inc. with his techie pal Steve Wozniak after leaving Reed College in Portland, Oregon at which he managed only a 6 month stint. He became a technician for Wozniak and fell instantly in love with the world of computers and his own ideas in revolutionising computers for the public. However, he proved to be a difficult person to work for when Apple became a major business, leading to him leaving the company for some time while he started over on another project. But through all the hardship and controversial leadership skills, Jobs is remembered as a pioneer who built an empire with the brand that everybody loved before passing away from pancreatic cancer in 2011 after an eight year health struggle.

A professional disagreement between actors Charlie Sheen and Selma Blair has resulted in Blair leaving 'Anger Management'; it seems highly likely that it was at the behest of Sheen.
Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management a spokesman from the comedy series has announced. Rumours have been circulating about a feud between Blair and the star of Anger Management, Charlie Sheen. The feud was revealed by TMZ on Monday when sources associated with the comedy series said Sheen would not return to the set if Blair was there.
Reports suggest the argument began when Blair criticised Sheen's work ethic in a meeting with Anger Management executives. Unfortunately for Blair, the notoriously irritable actor was informed of her complaint and made it quite clear that, using his powers as one of the show's producers, he would try to have Blair fired.
It was announced yesterday by an Anger Management spokesman that Blair would not be returning to the comedy. Rumours are currently circulating that Sheen has extended an offer to Mila Kunis (girlfriend of Ashton Kutcher, star of Two and a Half Men, a show from which Sheen was fired).

Space monkey Justin Bieber is latest name to be added to growing list of wealthy celebrities signing up to be amongst the first in space with Sir Richard Branson's planned Virgin Galactic spaceflights.
It is confirmed: pint-sized popstar Justin Bieber and manager Scooter Braun, are set to be blasted towards the real stars, out into space.
Tycoon Richard Branson, founder and chairman of travel, entertainment and lifestyle company, Virgin Group, was first to break the news on Twitter: "Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!" whilst a buzzing Bieber replied: "Let's shoot a music video in SPACE!!"
The 19-year old 'Baby' hitmaker could be fleeing planet Earth to escape from his growing list of shameful actions that have brought the wayward party-boy under media scrutiny, including leaving insensitive messages in the guestbook at Amsterdam's Anne Frank museum, abandoning his pet monkey, 'Mally', in Germany after she was confiscated at customs, arriving onstage two hours late at his concert in London, and threatening to "beat the f**k" out of a photographer. Space might just be the best place for the little reprobate then.

The bachelor pad will undergo a makeover.
It’s all changes all the time on this show with the latest being a “Two and A Half Men” lady character. After the departure of Charlie Sheen and the final departure of Angus T Jones, the house would have seemed a little empty. But no worries, for apparently the producers will inject a bit of estrogen to remedy the situation.
Though we would personally deem the show worthy of humane euthanasia at this point, the Two and a Half team has apparently gone for an altogether more complicated approach. According to Deadline, the new season will feature a brand new character, as yet uncast, who will play Charlie Harper's long-lost daughter. (That's Sheen's character). She'll show up at the house looking for her father and eventually move in with the two bachelors.
That certainly puts a new spin on the show’s title. What with no half-man and a brand new lady in the picture, there has to be a more appropriate title for this, But mostly, everyone – fan or not – just misses the show’s glory days. Back when the title really made sense and there was some semblance of humor left. But after Sheen left in a blaze of glory and Jones was booted off soon after for bashing the show, the question remains – even with an interesting female character in the mix, is there any hope for Two and a Half Men.

Ashton Kutcher's venture capital company is proving a stumbling block in the ex-couple's divorce.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore's bitter fight over their millions continues to drag out their divorce which really should have been sorted out months ago. Both stars are ridiculously rich, why can't they just keep their own fortunes and split anything they both own? It seems it just isn't that simple.
According to the New York Post, a $10 million battle is dragging on over A-Grade Investments, the venture capital fund Kutcher formed with Madonna's manager Guy Oseary and billionaire Ron Burkle which was recently valued at $100 million. Sources familiar with both Kutcher and Moore told the paper that the actor has made a ton of money in the 18 months since they split and he doesn't believe he owes her a penny. "Ashton set up A-Grade with Oseary and Burkle in 2010, when he and Demi were still together, but he recently told her lawyers the fund had not made substantial money. In fact, he claimed he had only put about $1 million into it," the source told the Post. "Now it seems Ashton and Oseary were working towards a private offering based on a valuation of $100 million. Ashton owns 20 percent of the fund, under California law, Demi should be entitled to half of his share - $10 million."
The Two and a Half Men star has been pretty shrewd with his investments, which could prove disastrous for him given his divorce from Demi could be one of the most expensive in Hollywood history. Ashton is the highest paid actor on television, while Moore isn't exactly skint. "Demi was asking for so much money, and [the negotiation] was dragging on so long, that Kutcher got fed up and filed papers, which means their divorce negotiations will become more public," a source previously told the Post.

Demi Moore is going for the jugular! Despite being worth more than ex-husband Ashton Kutcher, Demi is looking to rinse the actor for far more than he expected to give away. Sources tell TMZ.com that she has demanded spousal support from Ashton, which is unsurprising given she got $15 million belatedly from Bruce Willis in connection with their divorce.
Furthermore, Demi wants Ashton to help pay for the renovations to her New York apartment, something that he's unwilling to do. The swanky place, in the San Remo building, is worth somewhere in the region of $25 million and $40 million. Demi is also pretty upset that Ashton got involved in a lucrative online business and she feels entitled to part of it. However, he signed up after they split so it's almost certain that Moore won't be able to get her hands on any of the shares of profits.
Sources say Ashton is willing to pay out to end the long and drawn out divorce battle, though the question is - how much? Demi reportedly scored a huge amount from Bruce Willis, getting an alleged $90 million in total. Her net worth is somewhere in the region of $150 million, though Ashton is only just behind with $130-140 million. That could increase dramatically with future movie projects, renewals of Two and a Half Men and his social media ventures.
Power couple Ashton and Mila sampled London's finest watering holes.
British royalty Princess Beatrice and boyfriend Dave Clark entertained Hollywood couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher over the weekend, taking them on a tour of London's swankiest bars and restaurants. Things started at the Duck & Waffle on the 40th floor of Heron Tower in East London, but soon headed to Callooh Callay in Shoreditch.
Next came the John Salt bar in Islington, North London, where the drinks kept on coming. "They asked for our best speciality dish, said John Salt boss Leigh Gillson, "We gave them deep fried banana in caramel." A source added: "It wasn't a boozy bender, more an upmarket crawl." Mila, 29 and Ashton, 35, are currently living in London while the actress shoots her new movie Jupiter Ascending.
According to the UK's Daily Mail, the foursome even managed to hit celebrity restaurant Scott's in Mayfair and the Spanish restaurant Cambio De Tercio in Kensington, where Mila and Ashton were given matching Real Madrid shirts - which they later wore.
Is the old Kutcher back?
Ashton Kutcher has been working on his attitude for years now, and recent performances suggest he’s ready to be taken seriously as an actor and a celebrity. Gone are the bratty outbreaks that regularly made the news during his Punked days.
Or are they? Reports from TMX suggest the One And A Half Men star was involved in a macho-off-style shoving match with a security guard at the Stagecoach Music Festival, an outdoor country music concert held on the Indio Polo Grounds. Apparently, it all kicked off when a woman approached Kutcher in the VIP area while he was watching NIck 13 and Dwight Yoakam perform. When Kutcher attempted to greet this woman, the security guard had other ideas; he stepped in and that’s when the shoving commenced. It got aggressive before Kutcher’s buddies stepped in to break things up, but the security dude still wanted the 6”2 celeb ejected from the premises. Not that it mattered, though, as Kutcher decided to hightail it and leave of his own accord – perhaps earning some maturity points in doing so.

The two-man show will return this fall, with a helfty pay increase for Ashton Kutcher
The long-running CBS series Two and a Half men has been renewed for its eleventh season, which will see a return of the entire cast, though some appearances will be less frequent. Unsurprisingly, Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer have signed on to play their characters again for this go round. It’s a pretty safe deal for both of them and quite lucrative, if we may add, considering that Kutcher has now topped the chart for highest paid sitcom star, with a $700 000 per episode deal, as reported by Us Magazine. That’s still less than previous Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen’s $1.2 million per episode salary, but it isn’t a bad deal at all. Yes, a renewal of the show means that both of its stars will be making bank.
Angus T Jones, who plays Jake, on the other hand, isn’t going to be as involved this season, as his role has been demoted to a recurring character. This is still better than the rumors that he would be getting fired, due to some less than affectionate comments he made towards the show earlier this year, though. There are a number of reasons why his presence on the series could have been decreased. While according to CBS entertainment chief Nina Tassler, there are no grudges between Jones and the network, it could be that the relationship is still strained. Additionally, Jones has made comments in the past that he would like to free up some time for college (which seems like a perfectly reasonable decision.) Whatever the reason, the bottom line is that we’ll be seeing less of Jones and presumably more of Kutcher this season. He’s gotta earn that fat paycheck somehow.
Kutcher's days as a celebrity prankster are behind him, as he is now the highest paid actor in TV.
The couple took the opportunity to tour around the Norfolk Broads.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are taking a break far far away from the hot, crowded beaches of Florida. College kids might get all excited about beer benders and late nights, but K&K are having an altogether more mature spring break experience. The pair jetted off to the tranquil waterways of Norfolk in England. They’re taking a break from Kunis’s busy filming schedule. They’re visiting the village of Wroxham, taking boating trips and touring the countryside. That sounds like a pleasant little break from the hectic L.A. lifestyle that the couple have been used to.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Ashton thinks it will be a great experience. They’ve got no qualms about staying on a boat. They won’t exactly be roughing it.”
No, they certainly won't. But it’s not all fun and games. In fact, the trip was only possible, because it’s somewhat work-related. According to The Telegraph, Kunis was shooting her latest film Jupiter Ascending in the vicinity. Apparently, once they had a free minute, the pair decided to take advantage of the already paid travel costs. Ah, to be young and in love! Even the weather in Norfolk seems to be on their side and is forecasts predict sun all throughout next week.

Ashton Kutcher to keep Mila Kunis to himself
After a career playing the village idiot, Ashton Kutcher seems to have grown up. He’s learnt from his mistakes with Demi Moore, more specifically his openness with the public, and where that got him, so he’s planning on a different media strategy with Mila Kunis.
"You know, I've learned the hard way how valuable privacy is," he tells Elle. "And I've learned that there are a lot of things in your life that really benefit from being private. And relationships are one of them. And I am going to do everything in my power to have this relationship be private." As for how people perceive his relationship with former co-star, Kunis, "People will fill in the blanks however they want," he says. "There are some things that are better left private." Kutcher reflects for a moment. “Someone once told me, 'If anyone wants to be rich and famous, let them be rich first and see if they still want to be famous.'" Ashton’s latest project has been jOBS, a biopic of the late Apple legend, Steve Jobs.

Ashton Kutcher is yet to post a single tweet about new girlfriend Mila Kunis, and certainly no pictures.
Remember when Ashton Kutcher tweeted a picture of his ex-wife Demi Moore bending over in the house? Life was great for Kutcher, journalists called him not just an actor, but a social media guru. He had fame, fortune, business savvy and, well, Demi Moore, who seemed to 'get' the whole 'connecting with fans' over Twitter thing.
But Ashton and Demi are no more, and the actor's new squeeze Mila Kunis is a little less forthcoming with social media. A friend of the jOBS star tells the Chicago Sun-Times that he's now paying the price for his internet presence. "Both he and Demi just put too much out there and then had to pay the price for tweeting all those personal photos and things like that," said the source.
The crux of the argument is essentially, how can a man who was more than happy to let everyone take a look inside his life now preach intense privacy? "Mila is so private, and she made Ashton realize that when it comes to the public or the press you simply do not have to respond to personal questions - of any kind," said the insider, adding, "He [Ashton] was in the forefront of realizing the power of social media and things like Twitter, but he unfortunately didn't just use them to build his professional brand, he allowed his personal life to be showcased there as well."

It's been a rough week for Justin Bieber, though arguably a tougher couple of days for Ashton Kutcher, Jay-Z and company, who found their bank details leaked all over the internet.
Bieber Blues: What is happening to Justin Bieber? The former loveable scamp appears to have become a target for the tabloids, especially the British ones. He endured a torrid time in London before cancelling a show in Portugal, apparently owing to poor ticket sales. Is this a crisis?
Credit Check: Ever wondered how much Ashton Kutcher has in the bank? How about Jay-Z, Mel Gibson, Hillary Clinton, Arnold Schwarzenegger or even Joe Biden. Well, one hacker - seemingly based in Russia - has posted the financial details of the world's biggest stars onto a hastily made website. Some of the numbers are big. Huge, in fact.
Actress Demi Moore appears to be fighting for every penny she can get in her divorce from Ashton Kutcher
Demi Moore is “really hurt” by Ashton Kutcher, TMZ reports. She has requested for her cheating ex to pay her spousal support and to cover her attorney fees for their divorce, they have reported. However, this doesn’t appear to be a case of one party not being able to afford the fees but rather Demi is acting on principle, after being hurt by Kutcher’s previous actions, back when they were together. Ashton notoriously cheated on Demi and after discovering his infidelity, Moore spiralled into personal disaster, after collapsing at a party at her own home and being forced to seek medical respite for some time.
TMZ suggest that Demi’s request for spousal support is verging on ludicrous, as the Hollywood star does not need it. Kutcher may be a “bad husband” but trying to exact revenge on him via the courts is most likely not going to work. However, Demi’s lawyer appears to have advised her that the more she starts off asking for, the more she is likely to end up getting. It looks as though the couple may be close to striking a deal and it doesn’t look as though she’s likely to get any spousal support, despite Ashton being the highest paid TV actor in the US, for his role in Three and a Half Men.
From That 70’s show, to Demi Moore, to divorce, to dating That 70s Show co-star Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher has never been far from the headlines. It’s the acting string to his bow that has been under the spotlight recently, and the 35-year-old has been talking to Esquire about that part of his life.

Despite popular modern belief, Ashton Kutcher is actually aware that some of his movie are total garbage. Admittedly, it hasn’t stopped him continuing to make them, but at least he’s showing a degree of self-awareness. Even if that awareness has actually been heaped upon him by his friends, who aren’t afraid to tell Kutcher when he’s come up with another doozy.
In an interview with Esquire magazine, Kutcher explained “I know exactly what films I’ve done that f***ing suck donkey, and I know the ones that are good.” OK, he doesn’t mention Dude Where’s My Car, but he must realize that wasn’t considered a good movie by anyone anywhere, right? “I know it not because of the box office,” he continued, “because the box office is not going to tell you the truth - I know it because I have friends that don’t hold back. They don’t depend on me for money or employment. They’re just friends. Friends tell the truth.”

The likes of Will Ferrell, Rebel Wilson and Paul Stanley were also in attendance the Lakers match last night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles (February 12, 2013), but there were only two celebrities in the eyes of everybody there - Ashton Kutcher and girlfriend Mila Kunis. Much has been made of the ease with which Kutcher has moved from his marriage with Hollywood actress Demi Moore - they divorced after he cheated on her, remember - in comparison to his ex's apparent struggles with depression and substances.
Aston Kutcher has been dismissed before as a one-trick pony, a handsome guy who plays pranks on people for money. It's not a bad place to be, when you put things in perspective, but he's been trying to step out of that mould, and if his performance in jOBS is anything to go by, he should be taken seriously as a 'proper' actor.
"If this story is going to get told, I want to get it told in a way that honors my hero," Kutcher told the audience at the Macworld trade show about reading the screenplay. Actor Josh Gad stars in the film alongside Kutcher as Jobs' partner Steve Wozniak. "Ashton is going to blow a lot of people away. His performance was absolutely transformational," Gad told Us Weekly last November. "If he looked any more like Steve Jobs, I think it would just confuse a lot of people in thinking Steve Jobs never passed away. It's that uncanny."
The journey wasn't easy for Kutcher though, and his Jobs-like fruitarian diet landed him in trouble. "I ended up in the hospital two days before we started shooting the movie," Kutcher told the Associated Press. "I was like doubled over in pain, and my pancreas levels were completely out of whack, which was completely terrifying, considering everything."
Steve Jobs is the late founder of Apple Inc. and who was a technological pioneer in terms of computers and general electronics. 'jOBS' is the brand new biopic on this extraordinary and charismatic man who sadly passed away from pancreatic cancer on October 5th 2011 aged just 56. This movie chronicles his career from 1971 to 2011 beginning with his dropping out of the expensive Reed College in Portland, Oregon after only 6 months before going on to his first job as a technician which later saw him work with business partner Steve Wozniak for the first time; a partner who became a major player in the creation of Apple Computers.
This long awaited biopic is soon to be released following a lengthy wait since production began in June 2012; just eight months after Jobs' death. It has been directed by Joshua Michael Stern ('Swing Vote', 'Neverwas'), produced by Mark Hulme and written by Matt Whiteley in his screenwriting debut. Much of the filming even took place at Jobs' actual childhood home in Los Altos, California. The independent flick was chosen to close the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in January 2013 and is set for theatrical release in the US on April 19th 2013.

The old cliche, 'too much of anything is bad for you', comes to mind. But it's only a cliche because it's true; something that Aston Kutcher found out the hard way after he ended up in hospital following his fruitarian diet.
The star - recently panned for his turn as Steve Jobs in jOBS - explained to USA Today, "I went to the hospital, like, two days before we started shooting the movie. I was, like, doubled over in pain." He was attempting to replicate Jobs' diet, which he adopted to help battle the pancreatic cancer that eventually took his life. "First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to, like, severe issues," said Kutcher, who could acclimatise himself to the eating pattern without pancreatic issues of his own.
So why, then, is it such a bad idea to eat something generally considered healthy? Unlike the Notting Hill version of fruitarianism in which carrots are 'murdered', the diet Kutcher was following was eating just fruit and nothing else. Gaynor Bussell, a spokesman for the British Dietetic Association has the answers. "It's virtually impossible to get all the nutrients you need," explained Bussell. "You would miss out on essential fatty acids. One of the big ones is B12, and you can get some sort of anaemia if you don't get enough. And deficiencies in calcium, protein and iron would lead to tiredness and lethargy. You would be prone to osteoporosis. The immune function would probably be quite low. We have to have things from all the different food groups for a reason."
The last film to be unveiled at the Sundance Film Festival has been the long-awaited Steve Jobs biopic, jOBS, starring Ashton Kutcher and Kutcher has had a few things to say about his role at the premier last night (Jan 25).
It might suffer from the syndrome of the unoriginal title, but as far as biographies go, this one sounds pretty good. The film spans Steve Jobs’s (Ashton Kutcher) life and career from the founding of Apple in 1970 up until the launch of the first iPod in 2001. At the unveiling of the film, Kutcher gushed about his respect and admiration for Jobs, as well as the challenges he faced with the part.
“It's really scary when everyone has a right to be like a legitimate critic. Because he was very public. There are people here who probably know him way better than I do, who shook his hand, knew him, hung out with him. So that's terrifying. Especially when you're playing somebody that people really admired," said Kutcher, quoted by the Telegraph. The actor also talked about his intense preparation for the demanding role. He explained that he had to watch hours of footage and interviews with the entrepreneur, as well as talk to a number of the late Jobs’s friends, in order to get the tone exactly right.

Jobs (or jOBS as it is being stylised) staring Ashton Kutcher as Apple Computers co-founder Steve Jobs is to have it's world premiere at the Sundance film festival tonight (Jan 25), and as is the trend nowadays, the first clip of the film has gone viral already, eagerly awaiting what the internet-public have to it's say.
"How can someone know what they want if they've never even seen it?" booms Kutcher in the sneak peak, channeling his inner-Jobs - the man who introduced the world to all manner of things they didn't know they wanted during his time as Apple's head-honcho. How indeed. Well at tonight's premier we may get a little closer to seeing how things really happened and how Jobs and his Apple compatriot Steve Wozniak (Josh Gad) turned the world so Apple-friendly. At least, we'll get an impression of it, but certainly not the truth, as Wozniak has claimed.
After seeing the clip himself, Wozniak told gadget site Gizmondo the scene was "not close" to what really happened, saying, "we never had such interaction." The computer-whizz then went on to seemingly pan Kutcher's portrayal of Jobs, saying, "[The] Personalities are very wrong although mine is closer."

Charlie Sheen is to be a grandfather after announcing that his 28-year-old daughter Cassandra Estevez is pregnant. The 47-year-old Anger Management star shared the happy news with David Letterman on his Late Show after the host pushed him about "fessing up to a big development" in his life.
"You are going to be, in the next several months...fill in the blanks," teased Letterman. "You are going to be a..." Smiling back, Sheen replied, "Grandfather," to the delight of the audience, adding, "it's fabulous," though suggesting that 'Grandpa' was "not a title I'm ready to adopt." When Letterman asked whether Sheen thought he would make a "good grandfather," the former Two and a Half Men actor quipped, "Yeah, because you can leave the kid!" We don't know about you, but Charlie Sheen seems like a pretty decent guy to have as your grandfather, at least the visits to his house would be mildly entertaining? Cassandra is Sheen's daughter with his high-school girlfriend Paula Speert and in 2010, he walked her down the aisle when she married Casey Huffman in Santa Barbara.
Later in his chat with Letterman, Sheen gave his thoughts on Two and a Half Men - now led by Ashton Kutcher - claiming he'd like to appear in the final episode of the show. We reckon the odds of that happening are slim to none.

Like his former co-star before him, Angus T Jones' rant against his employers on Two and a Half Men looked to have cost him his job, unlike Charlie Sheen though, Jones may have dodged a bullet and looks likely to reclaim his role as Jake on the popular series.
In an online rant, Jones called the popular sitcom "filth" and "very inappropriate," and unfitting of his newfound religious calling. For a while it looked as though it would be him leaving the show before the producers even had the chance to fire him, however he looks to have held on to his post for a little bit longer, having apologised for his rather unwise words shortly after the derogatory video went viral.
With filming for season 11 getting under way next week, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler issued a statement yesterday (Jan 12) seemingly signalling her forgiveness towards Jones, saying: "We move on."
Demi Moore is certainly one for fleeting romances or at least she has been of late.
No more than three months after the divorce papers for her marriage to Ashton Kutcher have been filed, the 51-year-old actress seems to already be well into her second post-divorce relationship. The first one, with art dealer Vito Schnabel, ended abruptly in December at the Art Basel festival in Miami, but Moore is already being linked to a brand new man – this time it is 31-year-old Harry Morton. The pair have reportedly known each other for a few months, after meeting through mutual friends and, if the rumours are to be believed, they are already pretty hot for each other.
"They have been trying to keep it a secret," a source told E!News "It's not a serious thing...but it may develop into something. They have a lot of fun together and have been meeting in secret places in New York and Los Angeles." That wasn’t the best kept of secrets to be sure and apparently the couple finally decided to go public and they did so in style – being photographed arriving for a casual dinner date at South Beverly Grill in Beverly Hills. According to the same source, during the evening the couple looked casual, relaxed and enjoying each other’s company. Afterwards the two retired to Demi’s place, where the paparazzi waited them out, but to no avail. Well, Demi certainly isn’t wasting any time and let’s face it, being a rich, beautiful and single lady in Hollywood probably isn’t hurting her options. It may not be too serious yet, but we’re still keeping our fingers crossed that this one works out for her.
Season 11 of Two and a Half Men looks ready to be commissioned, but will all three of the main cast members be returning? Maybe not, as Angus T Jones' days look numbered on the hit show.
Last year's infamous rant by Jones is still on the minds of the powers that be at CBS, when he accused the show of being nothing more than "filth." This may end up costing Jones his place on the show, which, "filthy" or not, has provided him with a very nice bit of income over the past few years.
CBS boss Nina Tassler has told press that the channel is looking to extend the show for at least one more season, saying: "We have told Warner Bros. we'd like to have an eleventh season and they're equally interested."

Ashton Kutcher stars in the lead role of the new Steve Jobs biopic and it has been reported the movie will get its premiere on the closing night of the Sundance Festival, before getting a wider cinema release. Steve Jobs is the man who co-founded Apple Inc. and became one of the most revered entrepeneurs in the modern world.
The movie will follow Steve Jobs’ life story, from college dropout, to globally successful businessman. Kutcher plays Jobs, whilst Dermot Mulrone takes the role of Mike Markkula, an investor and the second CEO of Apple. James Woods and Matthew Modine also star in the movie. Tom Ortenberg, the CEO of Open Road, told Hollywood Reporter “jOBS is certain to resonate with audiences, and we are thrilled to partner with Five Star Feature Films to bring this film to theaters. A spokesperson for Five Star added “We set out to find the perfect partners to present jOBS to audiences worldwide, and we feel we have found one with Open Road. They were as impressed as we were with Ashton Kutcher's inspiring and unforgettable performance as Steve Jobs and are excited to distribute the picture in the US.”
Given that Kutcher is better known for more lightweight entertainment such as the sitcom Two and a Half Men and – lest we should forget – the movie Dude Where’s My Car, he seemed to many to be an unlikely choice to play the role of the respected Steve Jobs. The critics, of course, will have their say very soon. The Sundance Festival 2013 takes place between January 17 – 27 in Park City, Utah.
Demi Moore received a nice little package on her doormat this week, though it probably wasn’t the Christmas present she was expecting. More than a year after they separated, Moore and ex-husband Ashton Kutcher will finally separate after the Two and a Half Men star filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday.
Kutcher – who is now dating Mila Kunis – cites irreconcilable differences and is not seeking any spousal support from his ex. The filing comes a couple of weeks after Moore was spotted partying at Miami’s Art Basel, with Lenny Kravitz, among others. The personal drama between Kutcher and his wife began around a year ago, when they announced they were splitting amid allegations that the actor had cheated. “As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life,” Moore said at the time. Unfortunately for her, moving forward meant visits to hospital and being cut off from her three daughters, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, according to the New York Daily News.
It could be a pretty rough year for Moore, given that Kutcher has hired the pit-bull divorce attorney Laura Wasser. She has previously handled high net worth dissolutions for the likes of Kim Kardashian, Stevie Wonder, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and Heidi Klum.
Divorces usually mean families being torn apart, but in the case of Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore's divorce, the only thing being split is bank accounts, as the pair continue to bicker and draw out their divorce just that little bit longer.
Considering both of them are absolutely loaded, you'd have thought that they would have something else to argue about other than money, but apparently not. According to TMZ, Demi is stalling on the divorce, which took a year to arrive as it is, because she wants a big cash payout from the split.
When she split up from Bruce Willis in the 90's, Demi apparently got one heck of a divorce settlement and this time round she wants something along those same lines, despite the fact that Demi is richer than Ashton by quite some way. Whilst testimonies from differing sources vary, one excuse for the elongation of the divorce process says that Demi is just waiting for the right financial resolution to be settled before she is ready to pull the plug on the marriage. Other sources say that Ashton was waiting for Demi to file proceedings for the divorce, something she never did.
The Premieres section of The Sundance Film festival, which includes 18 films in 2013, historically includes some of the festival's highest-profile projects.
Ashton Kutcher's turn as Steve Jobs in 'Jobs' is one of several projects in the festival's noncompetition section that is headed by a mainstream stars. Festival director John Cooper believes Kutcher's portrayal of the enigmatic Apple founder will resonate with viewers. "Ashton Kutcher's performance I thought was quite remarkable," Cooper said. "It's a very formidable performance by him and it seemed like he really tried to grasp all the nuances of who Steve Jobs was." Since Kutcher's casting in Jobs was revealed in April, interest in the project has steadily grown. The Joshua Michael Stern-directed biopic was written by Matt Whiteley and also features Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.
Other projects feature Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, with all three appearing in Don Jon's Addiction. Shia LaBeouf (The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman) and Amanda Seyfried (Lovelace) also feature. Don Jon's Addiction sees Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, but the Looper actor also wrote and stars in the film, which is about a self-centered porn-addict attempting to reform his ways. Continuing the rise of music documentaries in the last several years, Foo Fighters' musician Dave Grohl looks at the history of Sound City studios in California, where Grohl's former band Nirvana had recorded their classic 1991 album "Nevermind."
After his online tirade against the show, Angus T Jones looks 'likely' to be given the boot after the current series of Two and a Half Men comes to an end, a number of online sources have said.
To be honest, anyone who publicly disowns their employer, including referring to it as 'filth' and urging people not watch the hit comedy, are more than likely to be given the heave-ho by their employers no matter who they are, and Jones looks likely to be no exception to the rule. VH1 and Zap2It have both reported that Jones could well be on the way out, with other websites even claiming that Miley Cyrus could be replacing the young Christian actor.
Whilst some people are commenting on solely on Jones' outburst against the show, what many people are discussing instead is whether this latest dispute may spell the end of the show. Should Jones be given the boot, it would mark the second star to leave the show, which would frankly make the show look all the more like a sinking ship. With Charlie Sheen gone and Jones on the way, how much of the already dwindling audience are likely to stick around to see Jon Cryer and Sheen's replacement, Ashton Kutcher. Only time well tell whether enough is enough, but we think maybe it is.
Angus T. Jones has somehow talked himself out of a 350k per episode television job. As we reported earlier this week, the Two and a Half Men star taped a video for the Forerunner Christian Church, calling America's most popular sitcom "filth" and urging viewers to stop tuning in. He made a hastily prepared statement half-apologizing for the remarks, though there appeared to be a clear lack of contrition.
We speculated on the whether or not the show could continue with Angus T. Jones still on-board, and it seems as though he and production bosses have made a decision. A source close to the show has confirmed to E! News that Jones plans to complete filming the current season and will most likely not return should CBS order another season (something almost nailed on given the recent acquisition of Ashton Kutcher). It looks as though creator Chuck Lorre is planning to phase out Angus from the plotline and it actually ties in well with the star's current status on the show (he enlisted in the army at the end of season nine). The insider said, "He won't be in every episode.How much they use him will be up to [creator] Chuck Lorre. The intention wasn't ever for him to be in every ep this year anyway. Now it might be less." Jones, Kutcher and Emmy winner Jon Cryer all have contracts through the end of this season though Warner probably intended to sign all three stars up again once CBS picked up the show for season eleven. Should it be renewed, it's "unlikely" Jones were return as a series regular. "You might see him for a few guest spots," said the source.
It would be a pretty sad end for Angus T. Jones, given that he's been a mainstay on the show since the Charlie Sheen days. His old pal reacted to the controversy this week, calling his former employer "cursed". No surprises there then.

After more than a year apart, Demi Moore still hasn't proceeded with her divorce papers from former love Ashton Kutcher, and according to a number of sources the reason why is because Demi is trying to punish Ashton.
The Inquisitr is but one of the outlets reporting that Demi, playing the role of the woman scorned, is deliberately refusing to further the divorce between herself and Ashton to spite him and his new flame, his former That 70's Show co-star Mila Kunis.
RealityTV Magazine is another who has reported that Demi is being deliberate in her delaying of the divorce, saying that each time the case moves forward, Moore “throws up another objection or demand.”
Continue reading: Demi Moore Divorce Delays Apparently Punishment For Ashton?
It’s been a year since Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher broke up, and the pair are pretty obviously not getting back together given the nature of the split (Kutcher cheating on the 49 year-old actress with a 22 year-old on their wedding anniversary namely), and also the fact that Kutcher seems somewhat happy with his former That 70’s Show co-star Mila Kunis.
Yet, as many people are starting to become aware, the pair aren’t actually officially divorced. That’s pretty strange if you think about it; Moore, a successful actor throughout three decades of Hollywood, not to mention minted from a previous high profile marriage to Bruce Wilis, certainly doesn’t need to be entering any protracted negotiations with Kutcher about getting money from him – she’s plenty wealthy. So what else could the reason be?
Some are going for a real bunny-boiler approach, suggesting that Moore’s refusal to split is because she’s hoping to lure him back to her – seems unlikely given the heartache he caused. However, the likes The Inquisitr and Reality TV Magazine are offering a far more plausible reason: Moore is acting the woman scorned and so is refusing to get divorced to get back at Kutcher. Again, we’re not entirely sure about this possibility either, but we definitely wouldn’t be surprised given how much the split has clearly affected the actress over the past year.
Ashton Kutcher might be dating his former co-star Mila Kunis, but his estranged wife, Demi Moore (the one he cheated on…) isn’t about to give the guy the quickie divorce he might be hoping for. And frankly, who can blame her? According to RadarOnline, Demi is seriously toying with Ashton’s patience and dragging out divorce proceedings as much as possible. Sadly for Demi, though, it looks as though her behaviour has lost her the support of her children, who have sided with Kutcher in the drama.
A close source reportedly told Radar “Demi has instructed her attorneys to delay negotiations as much as possible. The main issue they have been fighting over has been the division of assets and the monetary settlement, but it's now gotten to the point where Ashton is willing to cave in to all of Demi's demands just to reach a settlement.” It’s understandable that Demi wants to make life tricky for Ashton; she must be mad that he’s managed to move on so quickly but is it really worth her risking her relationship with her kids?
According to the source, “"Rumer, Scout and Tallulah have all remained close to Ashton and they have completely come down on his side. Rumer especially is really annoyed at her mother for dragging things out and thinks she is behaving like a total b*tch.” Ouch. “It’s a classic case of a woman scorned,” said the source and we’re inclined to agree.
Reports are 'rife' this week that Demi Moore has had just about enough of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis' public displays of affection. The new couple have been spotted lunching in Los Angeles and wistfully wandering around Central Park arm-in-arm. Pretty shocking for two whipper snappers in a relationship.
Nevertheless, the good people at - er - People magazine claim Demi Moore hasn't fully recovered from her meltdown that she suffered after Kutcher's cheating scandal last year. She will mark her 50th birthday on November 11, 2012 (she's 21 years older than Kunis) and is reportedly still struggling with weight issues. A source tells the magazine in this week's cover story, "Her friends aren't convinced she's all better," with another friend revealing that she's both "jealous and frustrated" by Ashton's new romance. It begs the question, is Moore really that bothered? Sure she's had a rough year, though she's still got Hollywood credibility (her recent turn in the excellent 'Margin Call' saw Demi back to her best) and no doubt has decent scripts still coming through the post. Ashton just makes bad films. And gets paid millions for a bad television program. Another source maintained the actress was actually doing pretty well, "As hard as it has been, despite the depression of going through a divorce, she came through it."
Moore will next star in the drama 'Very Good Girls', directed by Oscar nominated writer and producer Naomi Foner. The film boasts an intriguing looking cast, comprising of Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen among others.
Ashton Kutcher has been named TV’s highest paid actor. The Two and a Half Men star may have disgraced himself in the celebrity gossip world, by allegedly cheating on his partner Demi Moore, but in the world of television, he’s still hot property and commands a staggering fee for his appearances in the show.
According to Forbes’ annual survey of the highest paid television actors, Kutcher earned $24 million between May 2011 and May 2012. His predecessor on Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen (who left the show in a pretty dramatic fashion after suffering what appeared to be some kind of mental breakdown) did not even make the Top 10. That said, when Sheen was at the top of his game, he out-classed Kutcher significantly, with earnings of $40 million. Sheen wasn’t the only big name star to mysteriously disappear from the Top 10 though. Steve Carell, who proved to be a massive hit on the small screen with the US adaptation of Ricky Gervais’ The Office, also dropped off the list.
Snapping at Kutcher’s heels at the top of the list was Hugh Laurie, who ranked second with $18 million, largely for his role in House. Ray Romano earned an equal amount, and still appears to be raking it in with re-runs of his classic Everybody Loves Raymond comedy. Alec Baldwin’s in next with $15 million, still charming TV audiences with his role in 30 Rock.
Two-and-a-Half Men is the show that forks out the most for its lead actors; last year Charlie Sheen topped Forbes' list of TV's Highest-Paid TV Actors list with $40m and this year its new lead Ashton Kutcher has taken over the prestigious spot, albeit with a decidedly smaller sum of just $26m.
Hugh Laurie for his role in 'House' and Ray Romano, for a now cancelled 'Men of a Certain Age' were runners up to Kutcher, each raking in $18m. We'd all be happy to plum for second place in this race. Aside from Laurie, it was entirely sitcom actors that scored the bigtime in this list, with stars of 30 Rock, Last Man Standing, Men, and The Big Bang Theory - Alec Baldwin, family favourite Tim Allen, Jon Cryer, and Jim Parsons and Alan Galecki, respectively, all managing to make it into the top ten.
However, as much as it's always great to celebrate in the successes of others, for women in the equivalent category, financial success seems to not be quite so easy. Sophia Vergara from Modern Family is this year's female top earner, but at just (ha! just?) $19m, she's lagging behind Kutcher by $7m! Plus, the genres in which these women find their careers is far more varied than men - still including comedy, but also drama, reality and medical dramas all find their way into the list. Desperate Housewives is one show that truly shows women multitasking, and Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria, two stars of the show, both appear in the top ten. Although men still earn more than women, it seems the ladies can take the prize for versatility.
Esquire market themselves, as "Style and Substance" which is perhaps why their sexiest woman alive for 2012 is Mila Kunis. And Mila Kunis truly embodies that phrase- style and substance.
Known primarily for roles in comedy, Kunis has starred in 'That 70s Show' playing a spoiled teenager, voicing Meg on Family Guy and most recently films such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Friends With Benefits, her genuine wit and choice of roles is one marker in many ways that she's more than just a pretty face. She has also taken on far darker roles in The Book of Eli and the instant modern classic, Black Swan.
Kunis has a unique outlook on life, or at least, unique for Hollywood. Her childhood upbringing in the Ukraine, where she lived until the age of 7, and her Ukrainian parents, she feels have a lot to do with how down to earth and centred she is. In an interview with Style Magazine she said "the rules I followed as a kid and as a teenager were that of European parents... [were] very respectful. There was no 'I want'; no slamming doors. There was a line of respect my parents taught me and there is a work ethic that they instilled in me at a very young age." She and her family are all very politically aware and she has been very outspoken in her support of the Democratic party.

Miley Cyrus is shaking off her Hannah Montana image and getting saucy with her forthcoming Two and a Half Men appearance. Miley, 19, landed a guest spot on the popular sitcom and plays the daughter of one of Walden’s mate’s (Walden is played by Ashton Kutcher). With the new Miley Cyrus haircut - a sleek blond bob - it’s clear that Miley is leaving her Disney days behind as MTV have shown her pictured on a bed with Ashton, wearing a skimpy lingerie set, which leaves little to the imagination.
It’s not Ashton that she’s after, in the show though – so Mila Kunis can breathe a sigh of relief. Miley’s character Missi has her sights set on Jake – played by Angus T Jones. Her latest TV appearance seems to be the next step in her campaign to become a sex symbol, rather than a squeaky-clean teen star. Earlier this year, it was reported that she’s working on her new album, which she hopes will be “very adult and sexy and believable.” She’s signed up with Red Light Management, who deal with the likes of Foo Fighters and The Dave Matthews Band, so we’re expecting a rockier image from Cyrus this time round.Miss Cyrus might have to be careful that she doesn’t try to grow up too quickly though. Just last weekend, she was involved in an embarrassing social faux pas, when the Public Enemy rapper Flavor Flav had his photo taken with her, mistakenly thinking that she was Gwen Stefani. Most women would kill to be mistaken for Gwen Stefani, of course, but it’s worth remembering that she’s over twice Miley’s age!
As the countdown to 2012 begins, an executive (Swank) is frazzled about a technical glitch in the iconic Time's Square ball-drop. Meanwhile, a courier (Efron) is trying to help a frumpy secretary (Pfeiffer) achieve her dreams. A chef (Heigl) is catering a glittering event while trying to avoid her rock star ex (Bon Jovi), whose back-up singer (Michele) is stuck in a lift with a lovelorn slacker (Kutcher). A mother (Parker) is worried about her teen daughter (Breslin). And a tuxedoed millionaire (Duhamel) is trying to get to an important event in the city.

Valentine's Day in Los Angeles brings a series of romantic crises. A flower seller (Kutcher) has proposed to his less-than-keen girlfriend (Alba), then discovers his best friend's (Garner) boyfriend (Dempsey) is married. A phone-sex operator (Hathaway) is afraid to tell her boyfriend (Grace) what she does for a living. An romance-hating publicist (Biel) is helping her client (Dane) manage a media storm. A group of teens (Swift, Lautner, Roberts and Jenkins) are grappling with chastity. And two strangers (Roberts and Cooper) strike up a conversation on a trans-Atlantic flight.

These movies have an established pattern, and Guardian follows it to the letter. To borrow a phrase from Ron L. Brinkerhoff's soggy screenplay, Guardian swims with the current as it tics off predictable accomplishments en route to a by-the-book conclusion. At times, it's laudable. At times, it's laughable. But nothing prepared me for the sheer atrocity that occurs in the film's final frames.

You won't find any sort of rabblerousing or sense of time in Emilio Estevez's Bobby, his account of the people that were in attendance when Robert F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel. Estevez tosses together close to two dozen major characters and storylines along with footage of RFK campaigning against racism, America's poverty, and unlawful McCarthy tactics. The stories run the gamut from a young couple (Elijah Wood and Lindsay Lohan) getting hitched to keep the groom out of the war to an alcoholic diva (Demi Moore) and her forgotten husband (Estevez himself) to a philandering hotel manager (William H. Macy) who must keep his affair with a switchboard operator (Heather Graham) from his wife (Sharon Stone) and from an infuriated ex-employee (Christian Slater). There's also a pack of poll campaigners (Nick Cannon, Joshua Jackson, Shia Labeouf, and Brian Geraghty) who must deal with an acid freak out facilitated by a hippie (Ashton Kutcher), a pushy Czech journalist (Svetlana Metkina), and a flirty waitress at the hotel restaurant (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). Sounds like the makings of an ensemble comedy, no?

In Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman's ingeniously idiosyncratic showbiz semi-farce "Adaptation" there is a running gag about a typically bogus Hollywood-thriller screenplay called "The 3," in which a preposterous, nonsensical twist ending reveals the three main characters to be different personalities in a schizophrenic's mind.
In this week's "The Butterfly Effect," a superficially chilling high-concept horror movie full of paradox-packed time-loop contortions, the entire plot depends on just such cursory twists, none of which stand up to much intellectual scrutiny.
Stoner-comedy staple Ashton Kutcher -- who, like a young Keanu Reeves, is hard to take seriously in any non-stoner role -- stars as Evan Treborn, a double-psychology major (snicker, snicker) working on an memory assimilation thesis inspired by blackouts he suffered as a child during several traumatic events.

With Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy ending their relationship, friends of the couple explain what happened and why the relationship failed.
Ashton Kutcher's friends have explained why he decided to end his relationship with Brittany Murphy. Apparently, after meeting her on the set of 'Just Married', Kutcher wanted to return to the simple life of a bachelor.
Kutcher and Murphy shocked everyone when they ended their relationship after only seven months. This was apparently due to a difference in opinions and ideals, as they both realised that they had different sets of values, stated their mutual friends. One friend of Kutcher said that "He wants to go and have fun without a girlfriend. He's wanted out for a long time.
