Ashton Kutcher, the American actor, recently opened up about his feelings towards his ex-wife Demi Moore’s book, Inside Out, which was published in 2019. In an interview with Esquire, the 44-year-old revealed how the book affected his personal life and how he felt when it was released.
Kutcher and Moore were married in 2005 after two years of dating but separated in 2013. In her memoir, Moore wrote about her attempts to “fit the mold of the woman” Kutcher wanted her to be and how this led to things that made her feel “uncomfortable.”
She also detailed the th**esomes that the couple had, which led to Kutcher straying from the relationship. Moore claimed in her book that the presence of a third person in their private time left her feeling “strangely flooded with shame.”
In his interview with Esquire, Kutcher talked about his experience of becoming a stepfather to Moore’s three children at the age of 26. He spoke about the time Moore suffered a miscarriage while they were married and called it “really, really painful”. He also spoke about his love for children; and how he wouldn’t have married a woman with three children if he didn’t love them.
Kutcher is now married to his former That ‘70s Show co-star, Mila Kunis, with whom he shares two children. He stated in the interview that he was “f***ing pissed”; when Moore’s book came out and how it affected his personal life; but he stopped mid-sentence and stated that he doesn’t “want to open anything up in that realm.”
While Kutcher and Moore’s relationship was plagued with controversy and allegations of cheating; it’s good to see that they have both moved on and are happy in their respective marriages. However, it’s understandable; why Kutcher would be “pissed” about the release of Moore’s book and how it affected his personal life.
He may have wanted to keep those details private; but it’s a reminder of the impact that celebrities’ lives can have on their personal relationships; and the public’s perception of them.
