Ashton Kutcher Gives Relationship Advice In A New Interview


Ashton Kutcher, who we just found out is divorcing his wife Demi Moore, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issues of Women’s Health and Men’s Health magazines. In his coverstory interview with Women’s Health, Ashton is quoted giving out relationship advice. Um, yeah. Clearly this interview with Ashton’s tips on how to save a relationship was conducted before Demi decided to file for divorce … but not before he and she started having major problems in their marriage. Now, his advice just seems … hypocritical and silly. But, if you’re interested, you can click below to see what Ashton Kutcher suggests YOU should do to help keep your relationship happy and healthy.

The timing couldn’t be worse. Just a day after Demi Moore announced she intended to file for divorce from Ashton Kutcher and he’s dishing relationship advice … In an interview conducted before the split was announced, that is. But still, his comments to Women’s Health magazine – about working through things before problems start – now sound somewhat hollow. In the upcoming magazine interview, Kutcher – who allegedly cheated on 49-year-old Demi with party girl Sara Leal on their sixth wedding anniversary back in September – gives his view on keeping a relationship strong. Asked about the best relationship advice he has been given, the Two And A Half Men star said: ‘I think it’s all about working on the relationship and making it better…when it’s good. Don’t wait for a problem to work on things. The goal is not to get into a relationship; the goal is to be in a relationship.’ He then talks about what sort of women he could never be with saying: ‘I could never be with a woman who felt like she needed to change me.’ In another intriguing comment, Kutcher bemoans that no woman has ever told his he is a good listener. He muses: ‘I would just like a woman someday, somewhere, at some point in my life to say to me, “You’re a great listener.” Haven’t heard it yet, and that’s a superior compliment to get from a woman. But I’m going to work on it.’ Kutcher is also the cover star for sister publication Men’s Health. He admits to the publication, which is due for release on November 22, that he is ‘relatively scared’ of failure but added: ‘But I just don’t see it as something that’s inevitable.’

I mean … LOL. Relationship advice from Ashton right now is just … comical. But what I don’t understand is why he decided to give advice to the magazine in the first place. The problems in his marriage aren’t new and for him to actually sit down and consciously dole out advice on how to save one’s relationship while his was crumbling around him seems … silly. That being said, his advice isn’t bad advice … it may have actually saved his relationship had he taken his own advice. Then again, not cheating might’ve helped a lot too, so …. yeah.

    I wish he would lose the shaggy beard and cut his hair.

  • Hmmmm…

    I say he wanted out of the marriage & cheated with the intent of being “fired” from the relationship. It’s tough to be publicly ridiculed as an asshole (it’s clearly what guys kinda line up for: Brad, the Bachelors, Tiki, Arnold, … ), but probably easier than plainly telling Demi “I want out, I don’t want to be in a relationship with you anymore (& she hears: I don’t love you anymore)”. That’s my theory & I’m sticking with it. Discuss! Or not.

      Saves a lot of time from couples counselling etc. if you’re intent to get out of the realtionship, and fast?

      Cheating is a cowardly way to get out of relationship. It also makes one lose all respect they may have held for the person that cheated, it’s also more painful and humiliating for the person that was cheated on. Instead of being a coward, if he didn’t want to be in the relationship anymore, he should have set down with Demi and talked about it-showed respect for her and ended it without cheating on her. It takes two to make a relationship, but it can take one or more to end it.

      Hey Hmmmm, are you scumbag?

    There were obviously problems at the time of the interview, as it was most likely 3 months ago. I interpret his “advice” as admitting that things aren’t perfect and if he could help someone else by telling them to work on things all the time rather than when they’re past the breaking point, then he can feel a little better.

    Did anyone catch that the transcript says “women’s health magazine” and the photo shows mens health mag?

    • @Tanya — He is featured in the new issues of both Men’s and Women’s Health magazines. Women’s Health has the relationship advice but Men’s Health gave him the cover.
