Romantic comedies are a proven and true genre in the world of cinema, which seems to be experiencing a moment now thanks to the release of projects such as “Ticket to Paradise” and “Shotgun Wedding”. This is followed by the Netflix series “Your Place or Mine” (opens in new tab), starring Ashton Kutcher and Reese Witherspoon. Recently, the couple has hit the headlines thanks to their seemingly awkward photos from the red carpet. And now Kutcher claims that he posed awkwardly to avoid rumors of an affair with a colleague in the film. Let’s break it all down.
On the eve of the release of “Your Place or Mine” on Netflix, Ashton Kutcher and Reese Witherspoon held a press tour. During this time, they posed for several photos that went viral due to the fact that they seemed uncomfortable next to each other… so much so that Kutcher’s wife Mila Kunis called them about it. But recently he appeared on the Chicks in the Office podcast (opens in new tab), where he shared his point of view, saying:
Here’s the thing: if I hug her and be friendly with her, I’ll have an affair with her. Like, there are rumors that I’m having an affair with her. If I stand next to her and put my hands in my pockets, so there’s no chance that it could be a rumor, a rumor that we don’t love each other. Reese and I are very good friends, we are very close. I don’t need to defend it.
Well, that’s it. It seems Ashton Kutcher felt cursed anyway, considering how gentle he was with Reese Witherspoon during the “Your Place or Mine” promotion. Given that the project is a romantic comedy, people can expect a couple of celebrities to be more friendly on the red carpet. But Kutcher did not want obscene rumors about his collaboration with the Oscar winner to spread.
Ashton Kutcher’s comments from “Chicks in the Office” offer a glimpse into the reality of fame. During the podcast, he shared how largely uninterested he is in pop culture, including various viral moments he’s had over the years. Kutcher seems to think that his relationship with Reese Witherspoon will be covered anyway, and does not feel the need to prove his close friendship with his partner in the movie “Your Place or Mine”.
As mentioned earlier, Ashton Kutcher has had several viral moments recently, including photos with Reese Witherspoon. He recently revealed that he was at a karaoke bar and didn’t realize that he was actually watching Grammy-winning pop star Harry Styles. Then there was a conversation about how often he and Mila Kunis bathe their children. Being famous is weird.
“Your Place or Mine” will be released on Netflix on February 10. In the meantime, check out the movie’s release dates in 2023 to plan your next movie.
