Ashton Kutcher Kept His Distance From Reese Witherspoon To Avoid Affair Rumors — And Sparked Another Rumor Instead

  • What Kutcher soon learned, however, was that the rumor mill was going to mill rumors no matter what he and Witherspoon did: “If I stand next to her and I put my hands in my pockets, so there’s no chance that, like, that could be the rumor, the rumor is we don’t like each other.”
  • The hosts laughed again, agreeing that if they stood too far apart, the rumor would be that the two of them “hated each other.”
  • “Reese and I are really good friends,” Kutcher said then, adding, “We’re really close, I don’t have to defend that.”
