Ashton Kutcher: Not into ladies who try to change him

In a coup for Women's Health magazine but poor timing for Ashton Kutcher, the 33-year-old actor talks to the ladies' mag about relationships and what he looks for in women.

Kutcher covers the December issue of Men's Health, and according to the Huffington Post tells the magazine's sister publication in a pre-split interview that he could "never be with a woman who felt like she needed to change me."

Of course, this remark will now be subjected to closer reading since Kutcher's estranged wife Demi Moore announced she was ending their six-year marriage last week.

The "Two and a Half Men" star continues to give what's now some ill-timed relationship advice.

"I think it's all about working on the relationship and making it better...when it's good," he reportedly says. "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."

Assuming Kutcher and Moore go through with this separation, perhaps the actor/model will continue his search to find a woman who can compliment him on being attentive.

"I would just like a woman, someday, somewhere, at some point in my life to say to me, 'You're a great listener,'" he reportedly says. "Haven't heard it yet, and that's a superior compliment to get from a woman. But I'm going to work on it."

    This thread has great information on shopping. A friend of mine told me about this cool app that allows you to get instant feedback from your Facebook friends on whether you should buy something or not (for themselves or as a gift). Here's the link – I think the app is coming out around Black Friday but you can sign up now:

    That marriage was always curious. Not because of the age difference, but what did they possibly have in common to sustain a lifelong marriage?

    Ashton is just too immature; he will be better suited with a 20 year old because that's the mentality level he seems to be at. Let's face it, Demi was a hot star, top paid female actress back 10 years or so ago. She & Bruce Willis were hot power couple, where as Ashton was hardly in the star league. He only became better known or famous since he hooked up with Demi. I think Ashton was star struck or infatuated with Demi's fame & beauty; she had a great body, and was a much bigger star than him. Now that he has the fame & fortune, and doesn't need Demi anymore, he does the only thing that will get him off the marringe – "cheat with someone much younger," yeah, that'll do it. So, he chooses, on purpose, to cheat on Demi on the very day of their 6th anniversary date for Demi to file for divorce. Back 6 months ago, when Ashton & Demi were interviewed on Piers Morgan's show, I sensed then that he & Demi were on different page. He was physically there with Demi, but his mind & heart was elsewhere. I sensed it back then. Demi, you did the right thing; Ashton is too immature to know that you are a woman of substance. He is just not ready to settle down now, perhaps when he is in hid mid 50's.

    I think any marriage is hard work. You put your heart and time into it wanting to make each other happy, but, sometimes it's really only one person trying and that doesn't work. My heart goes out to Demi and her daughters. Ashton really sounds immature.He needs to grow up.

    Most women always feel like they have to change their man which I don't understand. They always feel like they have to put a ball and chain on them. People make their relationships complicated because they always want to change people. I don't like people trying to change me, it then makes me want to do the opposite of what they want me to do. There is a right way and a wrong way of getting what you want from your partner w/o demanding it.

    What I've been trying to say but CNN moderators won't let me is....Ashton hasn't heard that he's a good listener because he isn't one! Also, When a man says that he doesn't want a woman to change him it's code for , he wants to continue to cheat and lie! there CNN is that tame enough for you!!

    Given the age differerence between ashton and demi he still married her and loved at one time. But the only things that really bothers me about a man is that they think they can cheat and get away with it. Some men, BUT Not all men.

      Stunning and yes, miles ahead in the maturity category is Demi – obviously a child like Ashton who whines "marriage is just so hard....." should remain in superficial relationships which are much easier and require less comittment.

    Awwww- give the guy a break. He tied himself down for seven years of the best years of his life. Demi wanted a child with him and someone to make her feel younger. You can't turn back the clock, but you can always decide whether you are truly happy with your life or not. Ashton was feeling the mold and not liking it.
