Ashton Kutcher admits he was “king upset” when his ex-wife Demi Moore’s memoir “Inside Out” hit bookstores in September 2019.
“That ’70s Show” alum “doesn’t want to open anything in that area,” he told Esquire in a cover story published Tuesday about how the book’s release has affected his family.
“I finally got to a place where the media kicked me out [my wife] Mila [Kunis] My life and my family,” explained Kutcher, father of daughter Wyatt, 8, and son Dimitri, 6.
“And the next day, [the paparazzi] At my kids’ school,” the former “Punked” host continued, noting in the profile that she has “no hard feelings” toward Moore.
Kutcher, 44, was married to the actress, 60, from 2005 to 2013.
In her book, Moore reflected on two threesomes she and the actor had during their time together.
The “Revenge” star did not comment on the allegations at the time.
Moore was already a mother when she met Kutcher. He became a stepfather to Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, whom Moore shared with ex-husband Bruce Willis.
“I was 26 years old and responsible for an 8-year-old, a 10-year-old and a 12-year-old,” Kutcher recalled, noting that he still keeps in touch with his former stepfathers.
Although the exes tried to have children of their own before calling it quits, Moore miscarried when she was six months pregnant.
“I love children. … The idea of having another child would have been unbelievable,” Kutcher said of their loss. “Anyway, I have to have that experience.”
The “Ranch” alum and Moore separated in 2011 and finalized their divorce two years later. The split made Kutcher feel like a “total f–king failure.”
“Nothing makes you feel like a failure like a divorce,” he explained. “You failed marriage.”
Kutcher began dating Kunis, 39, in 2013. The former co-stars got engaged two years later and married in 2015.
“The thing about Mila that accelerated our relationship was that I always admired her. Her talents, her skills, her gifts,” the “No Strings Attached” star beamed. “I knew she didn’t need me. She knew I didn’t need her.
“We knew all the dirt on each other,” he continued, calling the “Family Guy” star “much cooler” than him.
Kunis gave birth to Wyatt and Dimitri in 2014 and 2016, respectively. Kutcher, who recently had a vasectomy, wants to raise “good decision makers.”
