The Two and a Half Men star, who was recently reported to have cheated on wife Demi Moore, expressed the hope that his comments would “open up a little dialogue on the state of honesty” in the press. He said he believes that social media outlets like Twitter (and presumably blogs like Celeberity News and Style!) increase malicious gossip about what should be celebrities’ private lives.
“We are our own editors, we are our own publishers and we are our own printers. Therefore, people can bastardize the truth in any way, shape or form that they want and spread that around the world,” Kutcher said.
But Kutcher has been using his Twitter account to make some very oblique references to his possible marriage problems, which have only added to the speculation surrounding a possible split.
Kutcher made no direct reference to reports that he had an affair with Sara Leal and partied the night of his sixth wedding anniversary away with her on September 24. But rumors of a possible Ashton Kutcher-Demi Moore split were fuelled last weekend when a removal van was parked outside the couple’s home in Santa Monica, California.
Kutcher has apparently denied any trouble in his marriage by first Tweeting a link to Public Enemy’s song Don’t Believe The Hype and later advising his fans not to “assume” anything.
