Los Angeles, CA – Ashton Kutcher’s friends review his movies for him and always tell him when they suck.
Ashton Kutcher has been around the movie business quite a while and has had some terrible movies. Rest assured, he knows which ones they are because he says his friends tell him every time.
According to Access Hollywood, if there is one thing Hollywood isn’t short of, it’s “yes” men lying in wait to boost a celebrity’s ego. Ashton Kutcher, 35, would rather hear the truth when it comes to his movies, even when it’s painful to hear. This probably makes him very different from Tom Cruise.
In an interview with Ashton Kutcher, Esquire reported him as saying:
“I know exactly what films I’ve done that f***ing suck donkey, and I know the ones that are good. I know it not because of the box office, because the box office is not going to tell you the truth — I know it because I have friends that don’t hold back. They don’t depend on me for money or employment. They’re just friends. Friends tell the truth.”
Ashton Kutcher could always ask his fans and internet critics as well if the brutal truth is what he wants. The internet has no shortage of people who watch movies just to tear them apart. There are entire websites based on it such as thatguywiththeglasses.com.
Ashton Kutcher has probably heard by now that a lot of his movies have been critical failures, from the super-stupid comedy Dude, Where’s My Car? to the cerebral semi-flop The Butterfly Effect.
According to Yahoo News, Ashton Kutcher says he prefers to “fail fast,” as a major struggle usually lays the path for the greatest breakthrough. It can be hard to know which is which while in the thick of it.
“That’s when you have to surround yourself with brutally honest people who will be like, ‘Dude, you suck at this. Stop.’ … I know who these people are in my life. Partners, friends, coworkers. You have a movie and you show it to them, and if it sucks you want them to be like, ‘Dude, that kind of blows.’”
Ashton Kutcher plays the late Steve Jobs in the upcoming jOBS, slated for release April 19, and his friends will let him know how it went.
Do you think Ashton Kutcher’s friends are right to review his movies and tell him when they suck?
