Ashton Kutcher Talks About the Fame Game on "Ellen"

Ashton Kutcher Talks About the Fame Game on

Stepping out for some media duties, Ashton Kutcher stopped by the set of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday (November 5).

While chatting with the hilarious host, the “Butterfly Effect” star shared the real meaning behind his 2013 Teen Choice Award speech that encouraged young adults to work hard rather than chase fame.

During his speech, Ashton pointed out the “propaganda machine around fame and celebrities” that makes kids want to be popular rather than a hard worker.

“All of that”s kind of crap,” Mr. Kutcher explained. “Working hard and being generous and thoughtful and smart is a path to a better life.”

The 35-year-old actor also made a reference to the Kardashian and other celebrities who only enjoy being “famous for the sake of being famous.”
