Ashton Kutcher covers Men’s Health December 2011; the cover being released only a few days after his wife released an austere statement that she was leaving him and would file for divorce (she didn’t use the word “divorce,” but it was implied with the terse language used). This was just as entertaining when Kim Kardashian did the same thing in Marie Claire, before leaving her husband (she left her second husband, Kris Humphries, with such speed neither he nor E! knew it was coming… she warned her immediate family in an email, everyone else found out TMZ.com along with the peasants).
On the best relationship advice he’s ever received: “I think it’s all about working on the relationship and making it better… when it’s good. Don’t wait for a problem to work on things. The goal is not to get into a relationship; the goal is to be in a relationship.”
On what compliment he would most like to receive from a woman: “I would just like a woman someday, somewhere, at some point in my life to say to me, ‘You’re a great listener.’ Haven’t heard it yet, and that’s a superior compliment to get from a woman. But I’m going to work on it.”
When asked to finish the sentence, ‘I could never be with a woman who…’ he replied: “Wow, that’s tough. I could never be with a woman who felt like she needed to change me.” – via Men’s Health Magazine
Kutcher is offering some kind of marriage advice, right? He’s talking about how a partner values the ability to listen. He admits it’s better to communicate and avoid problems rather than wait for something like infidelity to seek counselling.
Oh, that. It has been reported that he and estranged wife Demi Moore were in an open marriage and he became sloppy and reckless; sleeping with women without his wife’s permission.
