Denied! You gotta hand it to Lea Michele for trying. Ashton Kutcher is vulnerable from his divorce, he just played her love interest so maybe he’s confused…the girl knows when to go in for the kill. Unfortunately, Ashton still turned her down.
In a Warner Bros. interview for their new flick, New Year’s Eve, Lea asks Ashton:
“What are you going to do for New Year’s?” and then coyly suggests: “Why don’t you come celebrate with my big Italian family and me? They would die.”
So how does Ashton let her down gently?
“I was going to try to crash a UFO into the Mayan temples.”
If a guy tells you he can’t hang out because he’s going to be flying a UFO, he’s probably not that into you.
“I don’t know where I’m going to be on New Year’s, I haven’t sorted it out,” Ashton stuttered. After giving his Mayan temple excuse, which he said he wanted to do “just to see how people would react,” he added, “but I decided maybe I don’t want to work that hard.”
This is probably the worst turn down of all time. I guess Lea’s just not his type. Meaning she hasn’t appeared in a single Girls Gone Wild infomercial and probably doesn't do body shots off of strangers.
In the promo, Ashton added that he’s “gonna do my resolution in December this year.”
"I'm resoluting for December so that when I come to January, and everybody else is having to go through the grind, I'm already ahead of it, I've already done it. It's like taking the PSATs. I'm just trying to stay ahead of the curve. There is a curve."
Ashton was visibly more somber than usual in the interview. I’m assuming it’s because of his divorce, but he also shaved off his beard, so I dunno, maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe all his hyperactive powers were stored in that beard.
When asked why New Year’s Eve is so important to people, Lea said:
"I think people like having the opportunity to feel like they have a second chance -- that they can do things over and start fresh. Whether or not they actually do, it's just a way to begin the year and try."
Lea and Ashton sparked romantic rumors when they showed up to the red carpet premiere of New Year’s Eve. They seemed pretty flirty, and Lea even had a wardrobe malfunction. It was like Ashton charmed Lea's boob out of her dress like a snake out of a basket.
“This guy's like, the hottest guy,” Lea said of her New Year’s Eve costar. “And then when they called and said that Ashton was doing it, I was really freaked out.”
