Ashton Kutcher’s one-time hookup claims he might be cheating on Mila Kunis

Ashton Kutcher gave a long interview to the March issue of Esquire, and I’m including some of photoshoot. Most of the shots are black-and-white, and yes… you can see why Ashton was such a successful model. Especially for formal photoshoots (as opposed to pap shots), Ashton can look particularly beautiful. I only got two pages into the four-page interview, and I really didn’t find it all that interesting so no quotes for you!! You can read the whole (overwritten) thing here. The “angle” of the interview is that Ashton plays dumb really well but that he’s actually kind of a savant. Let’s see… what else did I learn about Ashton? He smokes Marlboro Reds. He has a few webbed toes. He’s obsessed with technology and money. He’s not a carefree slacker. Blah.

But here’s the story I really wanted to cover – remember Ashton’s one-time hookup girl Sara Leal? If I remember correctly, they met in Vegas (when he was still married to Demi) and he brought her back to his hotel room and after they boned, she ran to the tabloids to sell her story. Well, Sara has some new information!

Sara Leal is back to making shocking accusations about Ashton Kutcher. If you recall, the blonde party girl allegedly slept with Ashton while he was married to Demi Moore. She now claims that she has proof Ashton may be cheating again — this time, on Mila Kunis.

“Once a cheater, always a cheater. If I were Mila, I’d be careful,” Sara tells Star magazine.

A co-worker of Sara’s revealed a photo of Ashton, 35, in his pajamas — a photo her friend sent her. She showed Sara the photo and claimed that her friend was dating him. (It’s like six degrees of Kevin Bacon!)

This friend taunted Sara, saying, “my friend’s dating Ashton — look at this picture of your boy!”

Sara was apprehensive to believe her, but “apparently, the girl was at Ashton’s house in L.A., and obviously someone was with him, but he didn’t know he was in the picture. It was creepy.”

Sara doesn’t know who the girl is because she “didn’t really care.” However, she cared enough to send Mila, 29, a warning.

“It could just be an innocent picture, but I think it’s also possible he’s not dating Mila exclusively. Not just because of that photo, but because he’s cheated before. That would definitely be a red flag for me, if I were dating someone who’d cheated on their wife. I would hate for Mila to have the same experience as Demi. I wouldn’t wish that situation on anyone,” she says.

“I’m sorry about what happened, and I’m sorry to Demi. It was a terrible situation and I’m sure it was really hard for her. It was never my intention to go out and ruin a marriage and sell a story, but that doesn’t make it OK,” Sara said.

Do you think this is just some random chick extending her 15 minutes (if that) of fame? Or is this something else? As horrible as it is to admit, I think many of us “understood” why Ashton cheated on Demi – the lies, the Demi drama, the age difference, etc. Not that we thought Ashton was justified in cheating, just that we could see how it could happen. But now that Ashton is with Mila, I think a lot of people feel differently about him. Like, “Well, if Mila thinks he’s a good guy, maybe it’s okay.” Even though I don’t believe this particular story, I do think Ashton is the kind of guy who fools around regardless of who he’s with.

    I honestly do not understand the appeal of this dufus. Mila, honey, whether he’s cheating or not YOU CAN DO BETTER!

    • bettyrose says:

      She definitely can do better, but I don’t always buy the “once a cheater always a cheater” mantra. Some total dbags (Eddie C., Tiger W. . .) built marriages and families with women who seemingly devoted themselves to that life, and then cheated. Those guys don’t know what’s good for them. But I think with Ashton and Demi, she sold him a party lifestyle that was appealing to a twentysomething, and over time he realized she wasn’t what he wanted, and he handled it badly. I think Mila is what he wants and he knows she can walk at any time if he doesn’t behave.

      • Courtney says:

        I agree with this! No excuse, but he was young when he met Demi and their lifestyles were similar. He’s aged and probably changed a lot (as people do in their twenties) and might not want that lifestyle anymore.

        Justin Timberlake on the other hand… I believe that dude would cheat regardless of who he’s with.

      • Liv says:

        Yeah, not a fan of this “Once a cheater…” thing, too, but don’t make excuses for his behavior. I don’t like Demi, but he betrayed her and made her humiliation public. That was him showing his character. Let’s hope he just shows his good side with Mila, because I believe she turns out the better in him – but I’m not convinced he’s a nice guy now.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      I’ve often wondered if ‘lifestyles’ might not have played a part in Demi and Bruce’s marriage. Bruce was a PAR-TAY boy in his day, but he toned down a lot after they got married and then got sober (though I’ve read that may have recently changed).

      It was painfully obvious during the Moore-Willis two year separation that it was Demi who wanted out of the marriage.

      Maybe she thought Bruce was too old for her?

  2. yolo112 says:

    I never understood the Ashton bashing. Yes, he F’ed up…BUUUUUUUUUT, I think craycray Demi had everything to do with it cuz we all know she’s not quite right in the head…still doesn’t excuse his actions. But I don’t know how much I believe the ‘once a cheater always a cheater’ rule. People change…and grow up. He looks hot in those pics and looks super happy with Mila.

  3. Hautie says:

    His nose looks all twisted in these pictures. Like a bad break on his bridge, that was not set properly.

  4. Sirsnarksalot says:

    I would expect nothing less. Could this have to do with the basketball game outing yesterday where she did full make up for once and had her hand possessively resting on his thigh?

  5. Pixie says:

    With regards to Ashton and Mila, I like to take the view that she’s known him for years, knows him better than any of us and, if this is what she wants, she’s smart enough to know what she’s getting herself into. I don’t believe this Sara Leal girl, she definately is just expanding her 15 minutes of fame and she’s just spouting the same old adage everyone knows so well.

  6. KellyinSeattle says:

    And the sky is blue….I do kind of like the first pic; the last photo, though; looks like he’s trying to figure out 2+2

  7. LeeLoo says:

    All I have to say is that he better keep it in his pants this time or there will be hell to pay. It was one thing when it was Demi and her bag of craziness. He still should have divorced her first.

    At the same time, getting information from this Sara Leal chick is the stupidest thing ever. Her credibility is about as good as Kim Kardashian saying she has never had plastic surgery.

  8. marie says:

    I think it’s just someone trying to extend the fame.. aren’t Kelso and Jackie photograpped together a lot, I mean she could be cheating with the cheese dude for all we know..

  9. Original A says:

    I doubt this, even though I dislike Kutcher and think he perfectly embodies the double standards in Hollywood. Dude was super close to Demi’s kids and married, and yet people made constant excuses for him while women who do the same thing are deemed as damaged for life. That said, I don’t really think people should get that worked up over some celebrity’s infidelities in the first place. I dislike him more over his shady stock dealings than his personal relationships…after all, it’s between him and Demi. The reason I buy that he might not screw around again is because of age..He was young when he hooked up with Demi, and while he was old enough to know better about cheating and all I think some people are just not suited for serious monogamous relationships when they are younger…There is a reason the divorce rate for those who marry under 25 is much higher.

    • Nur says:

      I agree. I was a cheater. I cheated on two serious bfs. Im with my husband now for 7.5 years and have never cheated, nor was I tempted. Back then I was young, insecure and not ready for a full blown commitment. I should have broken up before cheating but I never had the courage. Now I feel much more settled and the commitment is no longer an issue.

      So I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on the cheating front.. But that doesnt change the fact that he is a shady character.

      • sauvage says:

        I’m with you up to a certain point: People DO change a lot between their mid-twenties and early thirties.

        However, I think there is a huuuge difference between cheating on somebody once with someone you met at a friend’s party without having had it planned beforehand and filling up a hot tub with semi-professional escorts to cheat with on your partner on your anniversary. That to me shows a lack of respect for women in general. I wouldn’t touch him with a ten foot pole.

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      Interesting about the shady stock dealings – more on that please?:)

  10. Michael says:

    Mila didn’t have her hand possessively on his thigh. ashton had his hand possessively on her thigh. Mila’s hand was on top of his hand on his knee.

  11. donny says:

    This story is obviously bs. He’s clearly head over heels for Mila. They were at the afterparty last night holding hands and kissing the whol time. I’m still not sure they are going to last. It doesn’t seem like shes actually in love with him, it’s more like shes just having fun.

    Ashton’s never had a real relationship before. I know he was married for 8 years but that was a convuluted hollywood realtionship. Mila has, and she was extremly happy and fullfilled. It’s just different for her. Thats my opinion at least.

  12. A says:

    He was hot as Kelso, now I don’t find him attractive anymore.

  13. Sarah says:

    He looks about 10 years younger since he got with Mila. I’m calling BS on this story, he seems happy in a way that’s hard to fake.

  14. RobN says:

    He might be fooling around a year from now, but I seriously doubt he’s fooling around now. I can see him getting bored at some point, but I think he and Mila are serious and he’s trying hard not to screw it up at this point.

  15. lucy2 says:

    And to Sara Leal I would say “once a money-grubbing famewhore, always a money-grubbing fame whore.”

    Don’t like Ashton, probably never will. Mila can do better. But they do seem to make more sense than he and Demi did.

  16. Shira says:

    I used to think he was hot up until the point all his cheating shit came to surface. Now he’s revolting to me.

  17. I can’t help it – I still find him so hot. And I also understand why he woud cheat on Demi, she seems really crazy. But on Mila? No way.

  18. bowers says:

    I agree she surely can do better–he’s not hot to me, and I still haven’t heard any “smartness” from him. If he is smart, he hides it well.

  19. JRenee says:

    So a friend said another friend told her he is cheating with another friend.. 3 hand info?

  20. vvvoid says:

    He looks adorable in that last photo. I think the suits are poorly fitted/designed though, in the other photos his shoulders look really weird. He has beautiful broad shoulders so it has to be the suit fitting.

    I think a lot of people fail to consider how well these 2 know each other. Ashton probably always had feelings for Mila, I think he feels incredibly lucky to be with her, and I think she knows him better than his jumpoff. I don’t believe “once a cheater, always a cheater” because I used to cheat in late teens/early 20′s and I definitely don’t any longer. I grew up. It was also situational. Cheating can be very situational. I respect the hell out of people who can honestly claim they’ve never cheated, I envy them, but I did. It took seeing the consequences of my behavior, the emotional toll it wrought on people who loved me, for me to realize how wrong it was and how that kind of behavior misrepresented who I am on the inside, or at least revealed to me the person I’d become on the inside if I didn’t change.
    That said, Ashton might be the type who gets bored and cheats, and that time might come with Mila, but that time is not now. I think this relationship means a lot to him.

  21. Bird says:

    I think he had an open relationship with Demi, and for some
    Reason I don’t think he is cheating on Mila. THey seem like a genuine couple in love.

  22. Grace says:

    Mila should not be surprised. She dated him while he was still married.Mila knew from the beginning that he’d cheated on Demi with women other than her.
    She’s a cheater, he’s a cheater and now he’s moved on to something newer and more exciting. Mila should have known.
    Now it’s Mila’s turn to say that she’s in an “open relationship”.

  23. B says:

    Not like it really matters, but the Sara Leal thing happend in San Diego, not Las Vegas…I’m sure manwhore things happened in many cities, though.

  24. Anna says:

    Unfortunately the odds favor cheating with Ashton. It’s part of who he is so Mila definitely knows. They look so relaxed together it’s impossible to believe Ashton didn’t tell her about whatever happened if anything did.

    Maybe they hurdled that fence and now he won’t do it again? IDK

  25. stinkyman says:

    “Might” is a mighty big word signifying nothing.

  26. ataylor says:

    Although I’ve always giving him the benefit of the doubt, I will say that after reading the entire Esquire article (which IMHO was a horrible write-up) I’m more convinced now he is a self-absorbed, self-important, douche bag. Was considering going to see jOBS, but now I have no interest whatsoever. I can just watch it for free on cable in a few months.

    Besides, I’ve had a clanging of warning bells since early last year when I heard he had hired an internet image specialist after Demi had her breakdown and he was caught in Brazil. Since then, I take all these sudden positive, supporting comments with a grain of salt.

    That being said, the reality is — Sara Leal wasn’t the first and only girl he cheated with. And Demi wasn’t his first serious relationship, a girl back in Iowa was. She dumped him after he got arrested for breaking into his HS and stealing money. According to sources from his hometown, he was apparently heartbroken.

    Sure he might have changed, but he “started” — and I use that term loosely — dating Mila in Feb/March 2012. He last cheated on Demi (that we KNOW of) in Sept 2011. How much dang “growth” and “maturity” could he have possibly experienced/gained in such short period of time??

    Sorry. I don’t buy the “He has changed” theory.

  27. Cinderella says:

    I can’t put my finger on it, but their relationship doesn’t seem genuine.

  28. jaye says:

    This chick is not at all credible. And for her to say she never intended to ruin a marriage and sell a story…she’s full of crap.

  29. justme says:

    The Esquire article reads like a publicist’s dream. The premise is that Ashton just “plays dumb.” He is actually called a “savant” for being able to convincingly act dumb in tv and movie roles. Has anyone seen him be smart in an interview or in something he has written or created? If so, please link to it.

    • ataylor says:

      Actually, as someone who WAS working as a publicist many moons ago, I would have been fuming. It’s Esquire. Not the WSJ. It’s supposed to be a fluff piece, something to make him inherently LIKABLE to the audience so that they will spend $$ and go see his films, not highlight the fact that he is a detached workaholic of whom you always need to keep an eye on lest he pull a fast one on you, and with the stench of eau de douchebag wafting all over him in the process. Something along the lines of the DETAILS/Mens Health&Fitness magazine articles of two years ago.

      He may not be a savant, but the man is smart. It takes brains to get into MIT (He ended up going to UofI after he lost his scholarship), major in Biomechanical Engineering and in the process make millions investing in tech companies. Bad actor yes, stupid no.

      Not his biggest fan, but I give credit where credit is due.

  30. Shelley says:

    Uglyville!! He just looks like he’d smell bad – as in lax personal hygiene, but also his basic character seems gross, grubby, and down-deep slimy.

  31. Ravensdaughter says:

    Any man who is enough of a douchebag to have a one night stand on HIS WEDDING ANNIVERSARY is more than capable of (ordinary) cheating.
    Besides, he thinks he’s hot stuff right now-insufferable he is, I bet.
    Sara Leal as a source-not so great. I just think that he has all the hallmarks of a serial cheater….

  32. Qatar2 says:

    Completely unrelated:

    I really wish people would stop starting their snarky comments with “Well, honey,….” or related barbs. Totally condescending and annoying as balls.

    Anyone with me?

  33. Nicky says:

    Ashton had a fling with Rhianna in early April. The next week he went to Santa Barbara with Mila. The Rhianna fling was supposed to be a secret until he got caught. Is he exclusive now?

  34. Starlight says:

    I think we should wait before going into conclusion.
