Before his divorce from Demi Moore was announced, Ashton Kutcher was interviewed for the December issue of Men’s Health magazine where he gave relationship advice and alluded to a few of his needs.
Kutcher spoke about deal breakers in his relationship, without naming Moore directly.
“I could never be with a woman who,” Kutcher began to tell the publication, seemingly flustered. “Wow, that’s tough. I could never be with a woman who felt like she needed to change me.”
Kutcher began to speak about his ideal woman in the interview, although he did not mention his wife in the description. He spoke about his desired woman in future tense, neglecting to speak about his marriage where he was rumored to be unfaithful.
"I would just like a woman someday, somewhere, at some point in my life to say to me, 'You're a great listener,'” Kutcher said. “Haven't heard it yet, and that's a superior compliment to get from a woman. But I'm going to work on it."
After rumors surfaced about Ashton Kutcher having an affair on the night of his six year wedding anniversary, his blond mistress reportedly sought money from the actor and comedian in September.
Sara Leal, the 23-year-old blond reportedly had relations with Kutcher after meeting him on his wedding anniversary. After partying with his friends in San Diego, Leal said that she would tell the world her story if Kutcher did not pay up.
According to The New York Post, Leal is looking to collect $250,000 from the new “Two and a Half Men” addition for keeping her story quiet. Leal was reportedly seeking legal council from the well-known Keith Davidson in Beverly Hills, The New York Post reported.
Moore, 49, insinuated that the scandal was the reason she filed for divorce this week "with great sadness and a heavy heart."
According to TMZ Moore said, "As a woman, a mother and a wife, there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life."
Kutcher expressed his regret via Twitter.
"I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi,” Kutcher said. “Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.”
