Lea Michele Asks Ashton Kutcher to Hang Out on NYE During Interview, He Declines

Since the breakup of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, gossip hungry fans have wondered if either party would step out with anyone or get caught on surreptitious dates after the semi-public split.

Moore has been quiet, but Kutcher has been doing press for the release of the ensemble rom-com New Year’s Eve, in which he stars in a vignette with Glee‘s Lea Michele. Michele is closer in age to 33-year-old Ashton at 25 to Moore’s 48, and gossip columns are keen to link the two for an abundance of are-they-or-aren’t-they? bits. There’s no indication Kutcher has any interest in dating the exuberant young actress, but the two looked cozy at a recent red carpet appearance for the film’s release, and during a recent interview, Michele appeared to proposition the newly-single Kutcher for New Year’s Eve shenanigans.

Michele asks Kutcher on camera:

“What are you going to do for New Year’s? Why don’t you come celebrate with my big Italian family and me? They would die.”

As a fellow Long Island Italian-American, I have to say, it’s not the most compelling of invitations. Kutcher seems to agree, deflecting:

“I don’t know where I’m going to be on New Year’s, I haven’t sorted it out.”

It seems Kutcher is in post-breakup self-improvement mode, because he also said:

“I’m gonna do my resolution in December this year. I’m resoluting for December so that when I come to January, and everybody else is having to go through the grind, I’m already ahead of it, I’ve already done it. It’s like taking the PSATs. I’m just trying to stay ahead of the curve. There is a curve.”

Kutcher has yet to detail his New Year’s Eve plans.
