Ashton Kutcher is in trouble. Again. The “Two and a Half Men” star recently filmed an ad for PopChips which spoofed online dating. In the ad, Kutcher dons “brown face” to play an Indian man, amongst other characters. The ad sparked immediate controversy when it was unleashed on the web yesterday, with many critics saying the portrayal was stereotypical and racist, and PopChips has since pulled the ad and apologized. I will never ever ever understand how blatantly offensive ads like this make it all the way through the creative process without someone saying, “Uh, guys? Maybe this is a bad idea?” As for Ashton? Sorry, but dude is as dumb in real life as his character on “That ’70s Show.” This is hardly the first time he’s said or done something totally stupid. Remember when he got all pissy on Twitter about Joe Paterno being fired? Ugh. [MTV]
“Extra’s” Ben Lyons caught up with actress Mila Kunis at CinemaCon 2012 in Las Vegas, where she cleared up pesky rumors she’s dating her onetime “That ‘70s Show” castmate, Ashton Kutcher, after they were seen together multiple times in the last few weeks.
“It’s absurd!” said Mila. “A friend is a friend.” Read more…
Demi Moore stepped out last night for the first time since her rehab stint, supporting best friend Amanda de Cadenet at the launch of her show, which Moore is producing, TMZ reports. Moore, who hadn’t surfaced since being hospitalized after a party back in January, was looking good, the New York Post notes. No longer “sullen and gaunt,” she has put some weight back on and “appeared to glow” with “round cheeks and a dewy complexion,” the paper decrees. Read more…
“If I were to answer it just kind of bold-faced, I would say what scares me is that I’m going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I’m really not lovable, that I’m not worthy of being loved. That there’s something fundamentally wrong with me. … I used to think that what scared me was the idea of being abandoned until someone said to me, ‘Only children can be abandoned. Adults can’t be abandoned because we have a choice. Children don’t have a choice.”
– Demi Moore talks to Harper’s Bazaar about her insecurities just a few months after her split from husband Ashton Kutcher, who allegedly cheated on her at least once. I hate to admit it, but Demi and I share a similar irrational insecurity — the fear of being unworthy or incapable of being loved. I’ve learned to recognize that fear as, ultimately, just a fantasy and have worked on finding ways to cultivate love internally rather than depending on getting it externally. I hope Demi does the same! [Harper's Bazaar]
Uh oh, reports are surfacing that Ashton Kutcher is dating a new lady — Lorene Scafaria, the screenwriter of “Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist.” Let’s hope that rumor isn’t true, because if so, Lorene, girl, you are an idiot. Supposedly, says Page Six, the pair began flirting/dating/planning their romantic liaisons long before he officially split from Demi Moore. Kutcher met Scafaria when he read for a part in her next film, “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,” earlier this year. At the beginning of December, he and Scarfaria were spotted snowboarding, and just today, Kutcher Tweeted a pic of himself with the banged brunette in Italy. But come on, lady, everybody knows that a cheater never really changes. If he cheated on Demi Moore with you (and Sara Leal and probably countless others), he’s doubtless going to cheat on you. Walk away now, and teach that overgrown frat boy a lesson. [Page Six]
We all want to believe that Demi Moore has found love again, just days after announcing her split from Ashton Kutcher. Yes, we do. My hunch is that beauty product mogul, Scott-Vincent Borba (of the BORBA skin care line), is not interested in “doing sex” with Demi Moore. According to Radar Online, the pair “started dating last week.” Meaning, they drink BORBA vitamin shakes, give each other facials (not the dirty kind), and watch Judy Garland movies together. Either way, we’re happy she has someone keeping her company during what is probably a rough time for her. [ONTD]
