Ashton Kutcher’s toe broke and he just snapped it back into place


This post isn’t for the squeamish, but I promise there are no photos, just mild descriptions of yikes! content. Ashton Kutcher appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan to promote The Ranch, which was cancelled as a series but still has two seasons left to air starting September 13. The talk show had just aired a segment in which they broke the record for most dancers en pointe, which included Kelly, impressively enough. So Kelly asked Ashton if he could go up on his toes. He said no, which is not surprising because en pointe is really hard, but he had another reason not to, which was due to a recent putting-his-kid-to-bed related injury. I know, I spent far too much time trying to figure out how one breaks their toe returning a sleepy child, as well. But Ashton did and oof, it sounds terrible:

For those who can’t watch right now, Ashton and Mila Kunis’ four-year-old daughter, Wyatt, came into her parents room to get in their bed. Because they are trying to get Wyatt to sleep in her own bed, Ashton had picked her up to walk her back to her room, only he didn’t know his foot had fallen asleep:

I go and I pick her up. I stand up out of bed, and I don’t realize, but… my leg had fallen asleep. And I go to take a step, and I just go down. And my toe is, like, pointing the other direction now. I’m on the ground. “Um, babe, I think you need to take Wyatt to bed.” And so she comes around and she takes her to bed, and I don’t want to turn the lights on, because I’m afraid of what I’m going to see. It’s three in the morning, and I don’t want to go to urgent care or like one of these things. So I do the Mel Gibson Lethal Weapon thing and just kind of, like, put it back on. Mila’s like, “That’s the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen.” And I was like, “I will break my toe every night for you, babe.”

The last part of that – the sexy talk about broken body parts – that was the yikes! content to which I was referring. I’m a barefoot advocate (you know, barefoot, the thing Gwyneth Paltrow invented), so I’m always messing up my toes. I’ve broken a few, stubbed them hard enough to turn them purple and drop things on them all the time. I’ve never knocked a toe out of place like Ashton describes, though. I’ve heard that people can put various parts of their person back in place, movies love to show people doing this, but I have no idea if I could. I might bite down on a belt and let someone else do it for me, but chances are, I’m hitting up that urgent care at 3AM. I wonder if the foot being asleep helped him with pain management. Although I would assume snapped a toe would wake most feet up.

Later, Ashton described his other recent tragedy – that mustache. You can watch the clip here, but he claims he grew it for a birthday party for one of Mila’s “popular English singer” friends. Ashton said Mila informed him the theme was 1970s New Year’s Eve, thus the pr0n stache, but when they arrived, everyone was in tuxes and gowns because the theme was actually, “1930s New Year’s Eve”. So he was embarrassed and kept the mustache to spite Mila. It’s a cute story, but not the real story. I don’t know what the real story is or why it’s important enough to keep secret, but his story doesn’t make sense, that’s a cover.

    Ouch. I’ve had to do that and it is definitely not fun at all.

    I can totally believe someone threw a party and told everyone it was a 30s party and told Ashton Kutcher the theme was 70s. He deserves it. But, yeah, not that he grew a mustache for it.

    There was a French comedy a while back where the madcap young lovers threw a party and told all the invitees it was a different sort of party. So there were couples dressed for a fancy costume, casual BBQ, pool party, formal dinner, etc. It became a fantasy of mine, but because I am an adult I realize that many things that are hilarious in a rom com would be horrible in actual life, it remains a dream.

    I want the Jimi Hendrix t-shirt that Mila has on.

    I actually find him really likable here haha. And I KIND of get what she means when she says it was attractive. To keep your cool like that in front of the kid, then get back up and just deal with it yourself temporarily – you come off as some kind of action hero or super hero haha.

    Mind you, I injured myself a lot as a kid – just getting into everything. I have a crooked pinky finger because I sprained it… then broke it a week later. Never bothered to get it treated because I was at camp, and I didn’t want to miss out. I’ve got a ton of lines on my arm from fractures from just doing dumb kid stuff… I also slipped a bone out of that same hand’s wrist… and there have been times where it’s felt slightly out of place again and I’ve had to get my Dr to fix it.

    My husband – instead of finding it sexy and cool – watched me wake up after a night out celebrating with friends (slightly hungover), vaguely state that my wrist was feeling gross, and then adjust it myself (before getting it checked out later that week) – proclaimed “you terrify me”. Which… yeah, I get that too haha.

      I get what she’s saying too – not the injury, but how he handled it.

      I really like her (and think she is gorgeous), and it’s actually lessened my dislike of him. I think he’s matured a lot in the last couple of years.

    Yeah, there isn’t much they do for a broken toe anyway. They just buddy tape it. I broke my second toe tripping over Legos when my daughter was younger. It hurt but I guess because I’ve had far more painful experiences (c-section, hernia repair, had my finger shut in a car door…) I didn’t freak out. Just iced it and buddy taped it.

  6. whatWHAT? says:

    The Ranch is such a terrible show (Sam Elliot can’t even save it), I can’t believe it’s lasted this long.

  7. MangoAngelesque says:

    To be fair, he doesn’t say he grew the mustache for the party. He had a beard going, and shaved it down to the 70s ‘stache for the party, then kept that.

    A guy shaving already-existing facial hair into something specific is WAY more reasonable than imagining he grew it just for the occasion.

    I’m guilty of “snapping the toe back into place” situation as well, lol!

    • Ok says:

      Is it like, an obvious thing to do when the situation occurs? I would be terrified to make it worse!

      • MangoAngelesque says:

        It has to be an adrenaline response, it just has to. Because in the unbroken-bone lightnif day, I can imagine my ONLY response would be screeching like a banshee and my husband racing me to urgent care. But maybe with the pain-induced adrenaline, it’d be different.

        No. Nope. Nuh-uh. Still don’t think I could do it. Banshee screaming and a race for a doctor and pain meds for me, it would seem.

    I really love these two together, they seem so down to earth and real. Laughed when I saw them on the Bachelorette a few years ago when they did the fatherhood challenge.

    I’ve never broken a toe but can go en pointe with ease, it’s my weird secret skill. He seemed to handle it like a champ!
