I put all my money (on) Ashton Kutcher. I think he could do really, really good. He’s 200 pounds, 6-2, 6-3, he’s the best…Ashton Kutcher, for me, is my No. 1 student. He’s a purple belt but he has a really good background in wrestling. I think he has a chance to be one of the top guys in jiu-jitsu.

We we’re working this over in the writer’s room, and then Ashton pipes in ‘oh, well I’ve got a huge prosthetic penis in my trailer’. We all had that awkward moment of ‘of course you do’.
You too can have one made. I had these web shorts that I did for my company and we were producing these various web shorts, like hidden camera things. One of the things that we did was this sketch called ‘Naked Man.’ We had this guy and we had him put on this prosthetic unit, and we sent him to interesting places… I was like, ‘Who knows when you’re gonna need a prosthetic penis?’ So, I kept it and I just happened to have it around.

People fill in the blanks really fast. They go, ‘Oh my God, he’s on a show and [plays] stupid, so he must be stupid. I can’t control that, nor do I try to, nor do I want to. There’s something advantageous about having people underestimate your intellect, insomuch as a lot of things are revealed to you. They assume you don’t know what you’re talking about, then all of a sudden, you do. And the next thing you know, you have information you wouldn’t normally have.

This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation.

I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.

Horrible. I mean, to show up to work and have to look at a good looking woman who’s funny and happy to be alive and joyous and nice to people, that’s a nightmare. We had to deal with it every single day. You know, I don’t think that there’s anybody like her. I think she’s maybe the only, I would say, true comedic leading lady in our business right now, that has really honed that craft. And she’s worked with Jim Carrey, she’s worked with Adam Sandler, she’s worked with Mike Myers. She’s worked with every great comedic actor I can think of, so she’s got a one up on all of us.

Bernie’s the best. There was nobody else to play the role. There was nobody on the planet that I wanted to play it other than Bernie Mac. And fortunately Bernie wanted to play it and was already in the process of creating something he was going to do. It couldn’t be better.
Kutcher plays Tom in this romantic comedy. Tom marries Sarah against her parents wishes. The two must learn how to make their marriage work while honeymooning in Europe. Sarah’s parents send Sarah’s ex-boyfriend to break up the marriage. Co-starring Brittany Murphy and Christian Kane.
Tom is closer to me than any other character I’ve played. If I’m not in control of a situation, I get very anxious and he’s the same. A lot of the characters I play are very naïve and I don’t think I’m like that. And I’m not stupid!
