1. Ashton Kutcher defends awkward red carpet photos with Reese Witherspoon

Dude, where's their chemistry? Ashton Kutcher is defending himself after being brutally mocked over awkward red carpet photos with his co-star, Reese Witherspoon. Twitter had a field day with pictures of the two at events for their new rom-com Your Place or Mine, where they looked like total strangers or perhaps estranged siblings forced to uncomfortably take photos together. On the Chicks in the Office podcast, Kutcher admitted his wife, Mila Kunis, agreed with social media on this, texting them, "Guys, you gotta act like you like each other." But Kutcher defended not putting his arm around Witherspoon or even acting "friendly with her," suggesting that if he did so, there would be rumors that they're "having an affair." So he put his hands in his pockets to ensure "there's no chance that that could be the rumor," not realizing this may just spark a new rumor that the distance between them was due to his questionable bathing habits.
