Demi Moore Claims Ashton Kutcher Was Paranoid That January Jones Had Cheated On Him With Bruce Willis
Several passages have come out from Demi Moore’s memoir, Inside Out, and in tradition of the Hollywood memoir, it gets dark. We have learned that Demi suffered a miscarriage at 6 months in 2003, fell off the wagon after 20 years of sobriety, and was raped at 15 by a guy who knew her mom (and allegedly paid her mom $500). Thankfully, here’s a lighter three-degrees-of-separation moment that further proves what we all figured about 2000s era Ashton Kutcher, which is that he was the douche we all thought he was.
Demi already told us the story of how Ashton allegedly parlayed two threesomes into guilt-free cheating. Demi also says that Ashton had a one-track mind focused on cheating, even when he wasn’t the one doing it.
Ashton dated January Jones when she first moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting, and they dated for three years until breaking up in 2001. Ashton got with Demi in 2003, and they were together until she filed for divorce in 2012. According to Radar Online, Demi writes that while Ashton was dating January, he was extremely concerned that she had cheated on him with her co-star at the time, Demi’s ex-husband Bruce Willis.
January had a small role in Bruce’s 2001 film Bandits. Demi says that Ashton, “was convinced they’d had a fling on set.” January would have been 23 at the time, whereas Bruce would have been a 46-year-old father of three. Demi doesn’t specify how Ashton was convinced. My guess is he found a well-worn copy of The Return of Bruno in her car’s CD player. All that matters is, Ashton was 100% sure that January had been two-timing him with Bruce. A few years later, Demi was seated next to January at an event, so she decided to get to the bottom of this mystery. When Demi asked January if she hooked up with Bruce, January reportedly laughed and replied:
“Are you serious? I told him a hundred times, I didn’t want to fuck that old man!”
I hope that when January Jones finally releases her memoirs, she titles it: Here’s Who I Fucked (But It Wasn’t That Old Man).
So for some context about Ashton and January’s relationship. January claimed during a 2009 interview with GQ that her first Hollywood boyfriend told her they didn’t think she was going to be good at acting, and that he wasn’t supportive. January never named names, but she later let Andy Cohen confirm that the not-supportive dick in question was Ashton Kutcher.
Demi has taught us that Ashton The Husband was a manipulative asshole who blamed her for his cheating and didn’t exactly help with her sorbriety. January has taught us that Ashton The Boyfriend was mean and suspicious. And you know he was probably so rude when he was accusing her of cheating with Bruce Willis. “January, I know you’ve been spending one-on-one time with Bruce. And don’t tell me he’s been giving you acting lessons, because you can’t act.”
