Ashton Kutcher talks tech, 'Two and a Half Men'

Ashton Kutcher is not only an actor - and Charlie Sheen’s replacement on “Two and a Half Men” - but he’s also turned into a tech guru and businessman.

Kutcher, 33, covers the September issue of Details, and gives his two cents on social media scandals, Twitter popularity and filling Sheen's sitcom shoes.

The actor once had the most popular Twitter account in the world, and still enjoys sharing his life with seven million followers. “I think privacy is valuable,” he says. “But at the end of the day, if you're not doing anything wrong you don't have anything to hide.”

Because, the way he sees it, there shouldn't be a difference between one's online life and one's real life. "I think technology is just mapping and organizing what already exists. If you're an asshole offline, you're probably an asshole online."

And what of those "leaked photo" scandals that sometimes turn out not to be leaked images at all? (*Cough*, Anthony Weiner, *cough.*)

"I think as more people realize that you're not invisible just because you're behind a monitor, the less that kind of thing will happen," he muses. "You're in the openness of the Internet. You have to check your moral compass every time you do something. But I also think there's some blatantly intrusive stuff people are doing. I'm not particularly a fan of Sarah Palin, but perusing all of her e-mails because we can? I think that's bullsh*t. Not to say that Weiner should have been sending pictures of his d- around.”

But for all that he’s doing with tech, Kutcher is primarily an actor, and is reportedly doing very well on the set of “Two and a Half Men.”

He couldn't reveal much about his character - "It's somewhere between an alien and Jesus Christ," Kutcher tells Details - but he does open up a bit more about his communication with Charlie Sheen.

I don't know him. I've never met him in my life," Kutcher admits. "But, you know, he sent me congratulations and wished me well. Via Twitter.”

Ashton Kutcher guest-edited an exclusive online-only issue of Details. Find it on Facebook, Flipboard, Twitter, and Tumblr on August 16th.

    Undeniably imagine that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be at the internet the simplest thing to understand of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while folks consider concerns that they plainly don't recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other people could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you

    Sorry Honey Bea but Demi is too old to be popping out babies! Nothing against Demi or Ashton; She is a beautiful woman and he is a a doll! They would have a gorgeous kid, jsut not going to hapen! I have heard Ashton wants babies but he should have thought of that sooner! I amm also a cougar but I know better than to marry anyone young enough to want a family! Cougars should stay single!

    My prediction is that without Charlie Sheen Two and a Half Men will be cancelled after this season. Besides Kutcher reportedly only signed a one year contract. Even he knows the show won't last.

    Green Eyes I will say this I'm not built like a boy or a cow was a name given to me because my name starts with B and I'm sweet as honey.Getting back to the subject 34-22-33 you don't have to like or believe it.I've been this way since the ninth grade girls would stare at me in the locker at school.My mom said I'm built like the models of the eighties and nineties. StephanieSeymore,Linda Evangelista,Jill Goodacre ect.I assure they didn't and still don't look like cows or young boys.I do not have cellulite or back problems yet, I work with a trainer four times a week I've got good abs a strong defined back thighs and legs which allows me to carry this shelf and keeps me out of the surgeons office so far.Now to the women of the world if I've said anything last night to make you look bad I'm sorry. I still say Ashton's hot.

    I like how people say "Sheen is such a better actor!" As well as "This show is about Sheen's life – it
    was written for him!". Sheen never had to even TRY to act, he was just a straightman. Cryer deserves the credit for this show's success, all Charlie did was deliver punchlines in deadpan.

    Roflmao!!! 5'8 height, 22 inch waist line, 125 lbs with a size Triple D t!t$. yea You must be in bed a lot with bad back with Triple D's and small body frame. Only a f/o/ol that thinks with his d**k would believe the measurements that you gave, a f/o/ol like the one a few comments above. I bet you have Wide Load tattooed across your a*$ instead. Dimple c/hee/ks and cottage cheese is more the look you have on your back view. As for Ashton, he is nothing to look at. He has a whimpy body and he needs to go to the gym and workout. I guess some women don't know what a real man is. Have a nice day and thanks again for the laugh with your fake body Try and hold your back up and don't hunch with that heavy load that you have to

    If those are your measurements, you definitely are no a fat cow. So, why the hostility. You are obviously the perfect size and it is your opinion if you think he is hot. Many girls do. Plenty of girls and women would ki!! to be your size. Live it and love it. Do you, don't fret with anyone telling you what you aren't.

Not every woman thinks that Ashton is all that. He looks more like he would come out of the closet any time soon and sprinkle fairy dust and fly away. Also, not all women want to shoot out 3/4 kids. In fact, not all women wants kids. I sure don't. So you should take your own d@mn midol, shove a shock down your throat and just stfu.

    Truly sad that the producer of 2 and 1/2 Men could not admit that Charlie Sheen and his life WAS the show, and ended it. Surely they are all making huge amounts of money from syndication – so why keep a zombie show on the air? Answer: Sick ego. Nothing against Ashton, his movies are not great, but anyone deserves a show of their own, not to try to resuscitate a dead one. And to those hating Demi – hey, I hear that Ashton lied about hsi age, and the age gap between them is NOT as large as you think! He's a lucky guy who NEVER needs to work, so why aren't his projects tailor made for him? He can afford his own show, so what gives?? THAT's the question!!!

Just because he is a very smart scientist does not make him an expert on everything. To give him that much credit you are a fool.
