Wow, this sounds AWKWARD.
Jon Cryer admitted in his recently released tell-all memoir that he and Demi Moore- ex of Ashton Kutcher- used to be an item way back in the day.
“It was awkward in that I’m not sure she even told him that we dated. In our first meeting, we’re trying to have that let’s-create-that-chemistry meeting, and the whole time I’m looking at him, waiting for him to drop the bomb.”
Eek, Awkward to the max. Don’t believe that quote, while on Live! With Kelly and Michael, Jon elaborated on how excruciating the whole interaction was:
“It was a little bit awkward because she and I had dated when he was 7, so there was that aspect. I don’t know if you recall, but this was during the firestorm of all the craziness when Charlie Sheen left the show and he was a possible guy taking over, so we had a meeting to see how it would go…
I didn’t know if she had even told him that we had dated, so for the whole meeting, he didn’t say anything. Every time he’d make a joke, I’d be kind of awkward, like, ‘Ha, ha, ha! That’s a great joke! Because we’re old friends, you know? It’s not like I dated your wife!’ It was a very awkward meeting, but at the very end of it, he said, ‘She told me. It’s cool. Don’t worry about it.'”
Woah, Ashton was SEVEN when Demi and Jon dated. Wrap your head around THAT.
