Lea Michele & Ashton Kutcher got extra-friendly on the ‘New Year’s Eve’ red carpet

In addition to Angelina Jolie’s big premiere in NYC, last night was also the big LA premiere of New Year’s Eve. It’s weird to me that they did the first premiere in LA, considering the whole film is set in New York City. Don’t you think they would have wanted to capitalize on being one of the few big studio films that actually gets shot in New York? Anyway, the most photographed people on the red carpet were definitely Lea Michele and Ashton Kutcher. Lea always makes sure she over-stays her welcome on red carpet by doing her “extreme posing” but last night was special. Last night, Lea got to walk the carpet with Ashton. Ashton is obviously fresh from his split with Demi, and he wasn’t wearing a ring or a red Kabbalah string (take that, Demi!). He took his time posing with Lea (his love interest in the film), and he made sure to loosen her up for the cameras. He even got a chance to look down her dress.

Speaking of Lea’s dress – it’s Valentino Resort 2012. It feels familiar, right? Probably because this is Lea’s default style setting – finding a sparkly gown in a neutral color. She just wore a very similar gown a month ago to the Glamour Magazine Awards. The gown is very pretty on her, and I like that she wore her hair down and she seemed generally “looser”… but I’d still like to see her mix it up.

Who knew that if you put two people – that I almost always dislike – together on a red carpet, acting cutesy, that they might actually cancel each other out? I don’t actively hate Ashton in these photos. Weird. Maybe that’s because I would LOVE to see Ashton and Lea date each other? That would be such a fun train wreck. He couldn’t handle her drama, and she couldn’t handle his ‘tude. It would be hilarious.

    Yup, Bleo and Ashley Simpson/Pete Wentz for example.

  2. Artisan says:

    Lea Michele = mehhh

    No matter how dolled up she gets, she’ll still look cheap.

  3. Jackie says:

    his hairstyle only works with dirty hair. with clean hair, it looks really dorky and lame.

  4. Dominique says:

    Has his jaw always been that gigantic? He looks cute, though.

    • jinni says:

      I was wondering the same thing about his jaw , what’s going on? It looks like he’s storing nuts for the winter, it’s scary. Did he get “revenge plastic surgery” as the tabs would call it?

      • anon33 says:

        I think it’s because that *atrocious* hair ends right there at chin length…it’s calling too much attention to his chin.

  5. Agnes says:

    I bet they hooked up while filming that cinematic masterpiece. And now she’s all like “Baby, let’s show our love to everyone” while he’s thinking “I’ll pretty much do anything that moves.”. Hahaha.

  6. blc says:

    I have never had a problem with Lea, but if she is stupid enough to get involved with that douchebag she deserves what she gets.

  7. Mel says:

    I agree. These two together would be Ah-ma-zing!!

  8. jermsmom says:

    Looking down her dress at what??? That dress needed to be altered to fit better at the top, it would have been much more flattering.

  9. neelyo says:

    This movie would only be good if it were one of those all-star disaster movies from the 70s and you were guaranteed the deaths of least 50% of the big name cast. Then I might be tempted.

  10. Funnylilou says:

    why are we not talking about age difference or age appropriate this time? ….I wonder why???

    • Obvious says:

      How old is Ashton? Lea is 24-25, I think they’re closer in age, and part of it may have soothing to do with the fact Ashton looks and acts like an over grown teenager. I swear to god he just channeled himself into Kelso on That 70s Show. That’s who he really is.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      because there’s only 8 years difference between them?

      • Funnylilou says:

        Exactly what I was pointing!!
        with the exact same gap with her boyfriend Liv Tyler was labelled a “cougar”, same for Eva Longoria, Courtney cox… and the list goes on!
        Because in these cases the women were the eldest but when it’s a man people shhhshhh you for pointing the same fact they usually criticize when the genders are reversed… so thanks for supporting!

    • Iggles says:

      Yeah, she’s actually closer to his age than his wife is!

      They won’t last, but I could see this hook up happening. He is like an overgrown teenager and she still plays one on TV — but she comes off as quite strategic and cutthroat in real life..

      • Funnylilou says:

        oh ok so an 8 years age gap is cool, then can you see him with JLO too?
        or it’s just working in one way?

      • Iggles says:

        I think it’s fine. I think Ashton and JLO are a more age appropriate couple than JLO and her 24 year old fling! (It grosses me out honestly!)

        However, age differences in years changes according to the age of the daters. For me, I’m 27 and there’s no way in heck I’d date a guy 8 years younger than me (19! No freaking way!). However, I would have no problem dating a guy 8 years older than me.

        Lea is 24. 8 years older is fine. 8 years younger is not!

        Ashton is in his thirties. 8 years +/- is fine. Dating a girl in her early 20s (22, 21, 20) or late teens (18, 19) would be gross and skeevy for him!

    • Heather M (Heather) says:

      I like your point, Funnylilou! 😉

  11. poopie says:

    just look at her GUSHING at him, bowing down, praying at his feet and begging begging him to just DO HER!! it’s pathetic……

  12. Tiffany27 says:

    How has she not broken her back from all that hard ass posing she does?

  13. Azurea says:

    Gettin’ a Jim Carrey vibe from AK in these pics. Can you imagine those two in a movie together as brothers?

  14. GoodCapon says:

    Pass me a bucket please.

  15. Nev says:

    she always gives face and fashion…she looks amazing!

  16. Girl says:

    That dress seems like a bit much. Too much “gown” for what is most likely to be a horrible, forgettable movie.

  17. outofafrica says:

    She needs to close her mouth

    • MariPily says:

      They both do. Why are they cheesing so hard? It irks me when celebrities do that tonsil showing smile/laugh…it’s ridiculous, hardly anyone smiles or laughs like that.

  18. StrawberryGirl says:

    Lea was a total b*tch to my friend, so I’m over her.

  19. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    I have never seen her look so glam. That being said, that plunge is too much for her.
    I imagine the best reason for them holding the premiere in LA (instead of NYC) would be bc of the cast. HUGE cast and prob almost all of them are based in LA and it’s just easier? Who knows if they’ll drag all of them out for the NYC leg.

  20. heatheradair says:

    She’s completely channeling demi here — the hair, the JAW, the whole package. Wonder if that was on purpose? Evoke a younger, fresher (more obnoxious) version of the ex wife and see if he wants a piece?

    totally agree I’d love to see those two hook up — they’re both such narcissistic egotists, it’d make for AWESOME gossip.

  21. Blue says:

    She looks pretty ( needs to close her mouth and stop posing so hard), he looks like a douche, but I can picture them as a couple. They do look nice together

  22. I.want.shoes says:

    I actively hate both of them.

  23. annie says:

    he’s gonna hit it and quit it!

  24. clare says:

    I hate those deep plunge gowns. On anyone. To me they don’t look classy at all. All that chestal and stomach region and partial boob show… ick.

    Low cut with cleavage looks nicer, imo.

  25. Bobby sue says:

    He is just *NASTY*. Ewww. I can’t even look at greasy Ashton or Brad after their smug, Devil-may-care attitude to cheating on their wives.

  26. Jenny says:

    His suit does not fit him properly and neither does her dress, so that have ill fitting clothing in common I guess.

  27. Lindsey says:

    If they haven’t f*cked already…give it time. Give it time. She’s going to be his rebound, she’s going to become too into him. You’re right, trainwreck.

  28. DarkEmpress says:

    I dont think Ashton would have any interest in FishFace. He probably is just thinking that if he hangs around her, her goody goody image would rub off on him.

  29. Maritza says:

    Ashton got a pretty good view of her nipple for sure.

  30. mia girl says:

    “Who knew that if you put two people – that I almost always dislike – acting cutesy, that they might actually cancel each other out?”

    @Kaier – Holy cow… it’s true. This just blew my mind!

  31. Cathy says:

    He oozes douche from fall the pores in his ugly body, his hair sucks. And who is she? I never heard of her.

  32. Alejandro says:

    She’s got a lil bulimia bloat in her face going on.

  33. elle says:

    He actually did have the red bracelet on in other pics. I don’t really care, but just saying you got that wrong.

  34. Jover says:

    Is Glee even still around?

  35. cool girl says:

    I wouldn’t see this wasteland of a movie if someone handed me free tickets and a bucket of popcorn. No thanks.

  36. Jane says:

    Kutcher is so damn gross.

  37. Heather M (Heather) says:

    Sorry if someone already mentioned this but she broke up w/her boyfriend in September! Ashton told Sara Leal he & Demi were separated n September. Who wants to bet that these two hooked up while filming, thus beginning the conversation that led to the separation (“why is Lea Michelle texting you at 2:00 am, Ashton?”)…

    Meanwhile, Lea is left to the process of letting down her significant other…And then they finally break up in September…

    I bet we see these two together. Even though a cheater, Ashton tends to be a relationship person, and Lea resembles Demi.

    Oh, and anyone else recall a quote by Lea about kissing Ashton or him being hot, or something (while filming–before we all knew that he & Demi were over)? I remember seeing red flags at that time, but now it’s all coming together…

  38. Happy21 says:

    Hmm. Guess I’m alone here…I can’t wait to see this movie. Not that it will be a wonderful film or anything but I’m looking forward to all the little storylines like Valentine’s Day. I think it’ll be cute and a feel good kind of movie.

    Not only that but I have no opinion of Ashton since the whole Demi thing. He annoyed me to no end up until about 3 years ago when I found that I could tolerate him. And really I always found him and Demi’s relationship kind of off.

    I’m not too sure where the Lea Michele hate stems from either. I’ve read a few articles and don’t find her too bad. She toots her own horn a little much for my liking but she’s not terrible.

    • cool girl says:

      Relationships become a little “off” quite often, so you make the choice to end it BEFORE you start docking your boat in other ports. Apparently it happened a few times with him, so he’s officially a douche, no matter how wrong they were for one another. Demi may not have thought they were wrong, and really, it’s just embarrassing for many reasons, including a) It happened before and Demi stuck up for him, and b) He was with the other woman on their anniversary. How low is that? Partners do make mistakes, but the serial nature of his made it more than a mistake, plus the lack of caring that it was their anniversary.

  39. MariPily says:

    He has such an annoying personality, but there’s no denying the man is handsome, even though he’s smiling like a deranged horse in these pics. Lea is annoying as well…Kaiser was exactly right in saying they cancel each other out, lol.

  40. coffeeisgood says:

    I’m surprised she isn’t doing the pose where she sticks out her collar bones.

  41. Heather M (Heather) says:

    Anyone else notice that they are color coordinated?

  42. Camille says:


    Talk about bad casting choices. *shudder*

  43. jane16 says:

    Wow, its like Kelso & Jackie all over again! They’re probably not serious though. Just funning around. Now that Ashton has freed himself from his bitchy, egomanical wifes creepy claws, I might start liking him again.

  44. dahlia1947 says:

    Looks like she’s laying it on a little thick (ANNOYING!). “Yes look at my nipple, yes!”

    She so wants some Ashton.

  45. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    I actually think she looks rather beautiful here and they make a cute couple. They’d be a total train wreck together but that’d be the fun part …

  46. Annie_Grey says:

    Lea is Little Demi.

  47. Michelle says:

    I am sorry, but ole girl needs to stop wearing dresses like this until she has bigger boobs.

  48. MAMAKOWALSKA says:

    What fun for Demi to see these pics. If she does it should heavily reinforce her actions. I want to see Demi with some new stud hunk who’s older and accomplished…….Ashton looks the cat who ate everything…….he’s what I call a nightmareman

  49. Laura says:

    She should really find a gown that fits her.

  50. marie says:

    Lea Michelle is homely! She has shrivelled up tiny titties that shouldn’t be in a dress like that. Ashton looks pretty greasy,like an Old homeless dude.
