I still do not get why Ashton has to be the highest paid TV actor for many years? I mean what is the appeal? He is a mediocre actor. His big screen movies had been just romantic comedies. He is not as good as other actors on TV there are much better actors with a lot of experience in TV who cant compare to him and still he is the highest paid TV actor?

Help me understand cause I do not understand the reason why

@Ohh God!!: COuldn’t have said it better, except I’ll add that this guy knows how to use and enjoys personal controversies to his own benefit. Douche!

Anyone else follow his Tweets after his one-night stand with that buckteeth blonde chick was in the papers? He LOVED the controversy! He isn’t just mediocre, he can’t act at all. Worse, he’s extremely fake and opportunistic.

@Real: Demi Moore ain’t much better – she used controversies to get famous as well but at least she can act.
