Ashton Kutcher has been accused of infidelity many times. Through all the accusations over the years, he and his wife of six years, Demi Moore, have managed to stay together. Despite their 26-year age difference, the couple’s bond seemed to withhold just about anything. That was until September, when a 22-year-old woman named Sara Leal came forward claiming she had an affair with Ashton Kutcher, which lasted one night. She said Ashton told her he was separated from his wife on the night of the alleged affair.
After attempting to reconcile and undergoing marriage counseling, this allegation proved to be too much for Demi Moore, resulting in her filing for divorce on November 17th. She told the press, “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I end my marriage with Ashton.” She also said, “As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation.”
Ashton is being portrayed in a very negative light right now. He is in the public eye for partying too much and not wearing his wedding ring while the divorce is underway. He was seen flirting with co-star Lea Michele at the premier of their movie New Year’s Eve and seen partying with many girls at local bars in his hometown of Iowa City over Thanksgiving. Although the main focus is on Ashton, Demi has also been seen out and about with several “mystery men.”
Ashton Kutcher needs help to be shown in a positive light, the opposite of how the press is depicting him right now. He is under the microscope due to his hurtful actions, and it needs to be shown and proven that Ashton is a good man. This can be done through emphasizing Ashton’s good qualities.
He is a hard working, dedicated man. He has landed the leading role on Two and a Half Men, replacing Charlie Sheen, and also in the newly released movie New Year’s Eve. Ashton is truly devoted to his career. He began acting as a teenager and has made a name for himself in the industry. Not only is he successful, but also talented. For years has made America fall in love with him.
Ashton Kutcher is no stranger to charity work. He is a supporter of ten charities and foundations, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and Habitat for Humanity. In 2008 he announced he would donate one dollar to the Habitat for Humanity for the first 50,000 people to add him on Myspace. Also in 2008 he spent a week building homes for the disadvantaged in Central America. Ashton and Demi created the DNA Foundation, which raises awareness about child sex slavery. The foundation’s goal is to eliminate child sexy slavery and change cultural stereotypes. The foundation also offers rehabilitation. This shows Ashton is helping the world with the large amount of money and resources he has. He is a good man, despite what the press says.
Ashton proved he truly cared about Demi Moore through his recent tweet stating, “I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.” This shows he genuinely loved Demi, and the years he spent married to her.
A way this campaign could backfire, making Ashton’s words seem empty, would be if Sara Leal kept talking to the press. If she continues to share details about her and Ashton’s one-night-stand together, this will make it hard for Ashton to repair his image. Another way the campaign could backfire is if more mistresses were to come forward. This wouldn’t be the first time America has seen this happen, referring to Tiger Woods’ story of infidelity. If more women come forward claiming to have had affairs with Ashton, he will be outnumbered. If these instances were to occur, Ashton will have a hard time getting out of the hole he has dug himself.
