Ashton Kutcher Speaks Out On Cheating Allegations
It’s not often we get an intricate insight into the scandalous lives of celebrities, but when someone decides to spill the beans, it’s pretty much the most glorious thing ever.
Scott Eastwood did that back in 2015, when during an episode of ‘Watch What Happens Live’ with host Andy Cohen and ‘Two And A Half Men’ star Jon Cryer, he revealed Kutcher had slept with his girlfriend at the time.
Cryer had revealed that Kutcher had gone on to marry Demi Moore after Cryer himself had briefly dated her, and Eastwood chimed in, ‘Well if it makes you feel any better, he did sleep with one of my ex girlfriends.’
‘Great!’ Cryer responded.
‘But she was my current girlfriend at the time so, ouch.’
‘He slept with her while you were together?’ Cohen confirmed.
‘Yeah,’ Eastwood managed through laughs.
‘How did you find out about that?’ Cohen pressed.
‘Well it was, I think the catalyst…’
‘That broke you up?’ Cohen asked.
‘No, that broke him and Demi up.’ Eastwood replied.
‘Oh gosh, geez.’ Cohen and Cryer responded.
Now, Ashton has chosen the weekend just passed to respond.
Honoured with the Robert D. Ray Pillar of Character Award for demonstrating “good character as a role model”, the 39-year-old took a jab at the allegations by observing his “name (was) splashed across every gossip magazine as an adulterer like five years ago”.
He added: “Character comes out when those magazines tear you apart for something you may or may not have done and you gotta go out and perform tomorrow, with everyone looking at you like you might be an adulterer.”
Despite the pain and rumours that surrounded the split, Kutcher told the audience during his acceptance speech he felt lucky.
“I had the great fortune of getting a divorce because I felt the impact of it and how much loss is in there and how much love is in there and that it’s not neat or clean or messy,” he said.
“And I understood finally my parents’ divorce in a whole different way.”
