ASHTON KUTCHER: “I’VE CHANGED!”
He’s been branded a love rat and a cheat, but having learned his lesson the hard way, Ashton Kutcher insists he has changed for the better. Here, he opens up about the effect women have on men, his hopes for 2012 and his commitment to the environment. And, as he promotes the new season of Two and a half men, Mr Kutcher makes a point of not mentioning Demi...
Cosmo: You have a new look!
Ashton Kutcher: You know, women will make you do things that you never thought you would do. But this new look (clean shaven, short hair) is related to the show completely.
C: What are your hopes for 2012?
AK: I’m focused on Two and a Half Men and on my anti-human trafficking organisation. I just want to keep that moving forward.
C: And how has the year been so far?
AK: I’ve had a blast! Ever since I stopped doing That ’70s Show, I always wanted to go back and do TV. So when I had this opportunity, I was like, “This is unbelievable!”
C: Any lessons on recovering from mistakes on Twitter?
AK: Now, I pause before I put something out and make sure I’m fully educated on what I am talking about. It’s a great lesson for life, too. To pause before you act, and be sure that what you’re doing is what you want to be doing.
C: We hear you’re eco-conscious...
AK: I drive hybrid cars and have solar panels on my house. I recycle and try to conserve water and try to not fly private when I don’t have to.
C: You are such a serious guy in person, and yet you always play characters who are fairly clueless...
AK: I am serious when I am talking to the press because I am always on guard. I never know what you are going to ask, and I never know how they are going to construe my answer.
