Pop Fiction Executive Producer Ashton Kutcher graces the cover and pages of VMan Spring/Summer 2008 issue, to collobrate with Photog Mario Testino on a robotic spread.
On the concept for the photoshoot: I had a vision one day. I was watching one of those Gatorade commercials where they had a guy on a treadmill, and they’re testing to see what his physical abilities are. I had this idea: what did the creator—God or whatever—make you for? Maybe we’re all doing exactly what we’re supposed to be doing, and we’re all actually robots.
On getting around before settling down: I had a serial-dating period. I was pretty abusive of my attributes for a while…My fame and my looks. I was pretty abusive to a lot of people. This movie [Spread] is kind of my way to say I’m sorry to a lot of girls I may have hurt by being disrespectful.
On his love scenes with Michelle Pfeiffer: I don’t think I’ve ever romanced an older woman. I’ve romanced a woman…If I had stepped back as myself and said, ‘You’re going to work today to make love to Michelle Pfeiffer,’ that would freak me the f*ck out. I would have been like, ‘Holy sh*t!’ I would have had a really awkward time doing that. So I just approached it from within the character’s world—just one character seeking comfort from another character, a compartmentalized existence that wasn’t my own.
On living the sweet life: My life is so far from domesticated. That is not a good definition of me at all. Demi and I play around the world, and that is awesome. I was just on the phone with my agent and he said to me, ‘I don’t know many people who have it as good as you have it.’ And I don’t know anyone who has it as good as I have it. I have a great spiritual foundation, an amazing career, a loving, supportive wife and family, I have a lot of friends, and I don’t have any enemies. I don’t know a lot of people who have what I have.
