Ashton Kutcher: 'Esquire' March 2013 Issue!

Ashton Kutcher gets personal in this brand new feature from Esquire magazine’s March 2013 issue, on newsstands February 19.

Here’s what the 35-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On his films that are worse than others: “I know exactly what films I’ve done that f**king suck donkey. And I know the ones that are good, that people like. And I know it not because of the box office, because the box office is not going to tell you the truth. I know it because I have friends that don’t hold back. They don’t depend on me for money or employment. They’re just friends. Friends tell the truth. My big thing is, Fail fast. If you’re going to f*ck up, get it over with.”

On playing Steve Jobs: “Jobs was an extraordinary guy, but a very ordinary guy in many ways. There was a speech that I found where he said, ‘So when you grow up, if you spend your life trying not to bounce into walls, just inheriting what you get, you gotta know your life can be a lot broader than that. Once you realize one simple thing: Everything around you that you call life was made by people who are no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things that other people can use.’ And I heard that and I knew exactly what the niche for making that movie was, what the social need for making the movie was. For people seeking purpose. I remember growing up and looking at the world and going, Okay, how do I live in this? Instead of How do I create it? How do I build it? How do I make something? And the empowerment of these ideas, I think they make an important story.”

On gambling: “I actually used to be a front for the largest national sports-betting syndicate in America…we were clearing like $750,000 in four weeks of college football. It was pretty fun. Then they caught on. The hypothesis had been that the house would just assume that I was a dumb actor with a lot of money who liked football.”

Also pictured in the feature was Jenna Dewan.

    @DB: That’s Jenna Dewan. She’s hot, not pretty though.

  • DB

    @Ceara: Well, that pic sure makes her look fantastic. It’s a very good photo.

  • Ish goes HARD

    @Ceara: I agree. She doesn’t have a pretty face. But I understand why guys would find her “hot”

  • Leon

    They are not a couple. And he got the “DUMB” actor right. He is as dumb as they come. Clueless.

  • aaron

    @Leon: Leon, you keep pecking away on your keyboard with your ignorance, meanwhile Kutcher will keep making millions in his various business ventures. Somebody is clueless here, but it isn’t Kutcher.

  • r&b mom

    What’s with the return to making smoking look cool? This pic and Justin Timberlake’s new video? Disappointing.

    “I know exactly what films I’ve done that f**king suck donkey.”
    Like, all of them right? Because you ‘acted’ in them. Com’on, we all know how silly Kutcher is. He’s an astute investor but omg he is dumb and so silly. 7 year old stuck in an old man’s body. When he starts sprouting self help…
