Mr. Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, has a terrifically entertaining cover on VMan (spring/summer 2008)—to illustrate the line "ASHTON GETS REAL," he poses on and in the mag as a robot. A good-looking robot, but a robot nonetheless.
"I'M NOT REAL" is shot by Mario Testino, who explores various humorously disturbing scenes—but does not forget to capture Ashton in his undies. Must never forget the undies:
"I had a vision one day. I was watching one of those Gatorade commercials where they had a guy on a treadmill, and they're testing to see what his physical abilities are. I had this idea: what did the creator—God or whatever—make you for? Maybe we're all doing exactly what we're supposed to be dong, and we're all actually robots."
Kutcher also discusses his (former) playboy status:
"I had a serial-dating period. I was pretty abusive of my attributes for a while...My fame and my looks. I was pretty abusive to a lot of people. This movie [Spread] is kind of my way to say I'm sorry to a lot of girls I may have hurt by being disrespectful."
He co-stars with Michelle Pfeiffer in Personal Effects, a "heavyweight drama." Asked about romancing an older woman in life and for the part, he says:
"I don't think I've ever romanced an older woman. I've romanced a woman...If I had stepped back as myself and said, 'You're going to work today to make love to Michelle Pfeiffer,' that would freak me the fuck out. I would have been like, 'Holy shit!' I would have had a really awkward time doing that. So I just approached it from within the character's world—just one character seeking comfort from another character, a compartmentalized existence that wasn't my own."
As for his life with Demi, he denies they've left Kabbalah and paints their own existences as ideal:
"My life is so far from domesticated. That is not a good definition of me at all. Demi and I play around the world, and that is awesome. I was just on the phone with my agent and he said to me, 'I don't know many people who have it as good as you have it.' And I don't know anyone who has it as good as I have it. I have a great spiritual foundation, an amazing career, a loving, supportive wife and family, I have a lot of friends, and I don't have any enemies. I don't know a lot of people who have what I have."
And then there are those attributes:
