Demi Moore, who? Ashton Kutcher, the actor known for using his pretty boy looks to advance his career and woo his girlfriend Mila Kunis’ character Jackie while playing Michael Kelso on “That 70s Show” makes major headline news every time he makes a public appearance with her. Their latest adventure was taking a jaunt to visit a local Starbucks franchise for what looked to be coffee coolers. Perez Hilton was one of the celeb gossip writers who commented about the cute new celebrity couple on Jan. 21, 2013. Pointing out on his entertainment news website that the pair are always spotted out together and looking happy, comfortable, and casual leads fans to wonder how it is that such big name celebs can seem so absolutely normal and in love with one another. Especially since his current relationship with his ex-wife is not completely over. How does he manage to do that?
Born on February 7, 1978 in Cedar Rapids Iowa, the Gen Y star married the older Gen X actress despite everyone telling him that is was a mistake to do. Perhaps it was his Irish, Native American, and Bohemian ancestry that made him want to sew those wild oats while throwing caution to the wind… but he did it. He put a ring on it and once his older wife started to mentally and emotionally unravel over their age difference he did what any not-completely-emotionally-healthy person might do. He had an affair that he knew would go public — with a girl he had zero interest in long-term. Demi flipped her lid and he got served with his walking papers. A free man, he was able to turn back the clock (so to speak) and get back to his “That 70s Show” roots.
Career wise, he made some smart and foolish moves during recent years on the advice of Demi. After he turned down an opportunity to do an 8th season of the hit television show (most likely on the advice of his wife who had to have sensed the attraction between him and Kunis), he turned into world’s most famous prankster. His MTV reality show “Punked” was the freshest new sensation of the decade. Missing his interaction with the cast of “That 70s Show” and hoping to go back to filming a sitcom, he was brought in to replace the disgraced Charlie Sheen as the lead actor on the CBS television show, “Two and a Half Men”. While he was not working with Kunis any longer, being on Chuck Lorre’s television series seems to bring him a comfort-level boost. Minus Demi Moore, he was still a star — and one with a real job to do.
Kutcher’s first episode on “Two And A Half Men” brought more viewers than at any other time in the previous eight seasons. It also grossed him a sizable chunk of income, playing Walden. Almost as soon as he felt confident the show was a hit, he and Moore split. The divorce actually caused a big problem for the star — primarily because he and she had been essentially tied to the him on every film, television, and charity benefit project they did.
As a newly single guy with oodles of fame and star power that helps him earn, he needed to branch out and make a name for himself without her. He started a number of new projects to help various charities and invested heavily in his own Los Angeles eatery — a chic restaurant venue called “Dolce”. To give an idea of Kutcher’s publicity status, he was named one of Time Magazine’s most influential people in the world. He also has an active twitter account with a whopping 13.5 million followers — having raced CNN and beat them to the goal of gaining his first one million followers.
But he’s not an overwhelmingly egotistical person — he does not seem to get star-dust in his eyes. He married actress Demi Moore in 2005 and is now filing for divorce, but he is still a stepfather to Moore’s three children, Rumer, Scout La Rue and Tallulah Belle Willis. He does not speak ill of his ex-wife and seemed to be extremely supportive of her when she went through rehab for her eating disorder. He also seems to be very respectful and affectionate with his new girlfriend (and ex-co-star). Pet-friendly Kutcher is now dating Mila Kunis and was recently seen walking one of their dogs.
When it comes to charity, Kutcher puts humanitarian and human rights work first, especially where modern-day slavery is involved — but his cheating scandal really took some of the oomph out of his charitable work. Together, Kutcher and Moore had founded DNA: The Demi and Ashton Foundation in 2010. Their goal was to help put an end to modern-day slavery that goes on throughout the world. The charity seeks to punish perpetrators and free any innocent and exploited victims. As a sharp reminder of their breakup and divorce proceeding, Demi and Ashton changed the name to THORN: Digital Defenders of Children. This newly formed charity will continue to carry on the work started by the DNA Foundation into the year 2013 and forward. Hopefully, his affair and the celeb couple’s drawn out divorce will not hurt the non-profit organization’s future endeavors.
Kutcher also supports Artists for Peace and Justice, an organization that recently raised enough funds to fully sponsor three schools in Haiti. His other charities include the Elton John AIDS foundation — and of course to financing the new charitable effort made collaboratively by him and Demi. Coupled with Mila Kunis, he seems to be happier and more relaxed that running about with Moore chaperoning him. His new girlfriend looks happy, too. While the pair are catching flack for always hanging out and being together — and for even starting to dress alike on their down time — the real relationship gossip about these two star celebs is that while they are seriously sexy stars in their own right that when you pair them together something crazy and magical happens…
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis look totally cute together. And that bit of Hollywood trivia is something Perez Hilton nailed in his article about the two celebs being spotted out by the paparazzi while making another Starbucks run in sunny California.
