For some strange reason, Nightline sat down with Ashton Kutcher for an extensive and wide-ranging interview. Dude? What? ABC News promotes the interview with this: “In a wide-ranging interview with McFadden, Kutcher, 32, talked about everything from the changing media to his personal chef to the chances that he’ll have children with his wife, Demi Moore. He even talked about the gun he keeps under his bed.” Shiver. It sounds like a threat! Star Magazine has an advanced copy of the interview, which airs tomorrow night:
After five years of marriage, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore still get asked about their plans to have a baby. Surely Demi’s biological clock is ticking fast at 47, so is it even possible to conceive a child together at this point?
“I think my wife is a genetic freak,” Ashton jokes to Nightline’s Cynthia McFadden in an interview to air Thursday. “I’m not worried.”
The bigger question now is whether Ashton and Demi want to be tied down raising a baby. The answer: “I don’t know… it’s ‘I don’t know,’” says Ashton, who has helped raise Demi’s three daughters from her marriage to ex-husband Bruce Willis.
“There is something attractive about our third girl gaining some independence,” the 32-year-old says. “I get to walk the dogs in the morning because she can drive herself to school now, there is a level of independence that we’ve never had since our relationship started, and an ability to spend time together doing things that we might want to take advantage of. Because in our relationship we’ve always had kids.”
Ashton, who has become quite the activist for social injustice, explains, “We get to do a lot of things now, and having Bruce as such a great partner in raising the kids, affords us a lot. There is something very attractive about what we can do in the world and for the world, given that responsibility in a different place.”

Well, Demi is some kind of freak, I’m not sure if we should call it “genetic”. Although I’m sure Demi is working on some gene replacement therapy, all in the hopes of keeping her face tighter than… Adam Shankman’s pants. See, I started that sentence and I didn’t know how to finish it. In truth, there’s nothing tighter than Demi’s face.
Now, the qualms about calling Demi a “genetic freak” aside, I love how Ashton talks about his stepdaughters. And I buy it – I think he’s probably a very involved and loving stepfather, and I love all of the ways he uses “our” and “we”. It sounds like it’s for real, doesn’t it?
ABC News also released some of Ashton’s quotes about Brittany Murphy. When asked about if he’s made any sense about her death, Ashton said: “I don’t think you can, I don’t know if you try to make sense of it or not…I just celebrate who she was… She was like the person who walked in the room and she was always the first person to dance. You know when you go to a party and everybody is standing around, and the music is going — and you know sooner or later everyone is going to dance. She was always the first person to dance. And I just try to connect to that and celebrate who she was and how she was, and not make sense of it, ’cause there is no sense of making sense of it.” Sad. And he sounds honest too – I always got the feeling they had a bad breakup and he really broke her heart.
