Every morning I take my dogs out, and when they go I go. I feel like a caveman

Former model, sitcom star and celebrity prankster Ashton Kutcher has packed a lot into his first thirty years. In an open and frank discussion at Blockbuster.co.uk he philosophises on the battle of the sexes, shopping, connecting with nature and how to be grown up.

Kutcher insists that it is not the years that make you grown up instead it is all about where you are in life and how much responsibility you have taken on. So he feels "so darn grown up!" For him, turning 30 was just an excuse to "throw a party and not get hepatitis."

A bigshot TV producer with a widely-desired wife and international movie stardom, his boyish charms and irresistibly cheeky smile have earned him everything he could possible want in life.

In a surprisingly frank interview, he admits to having some caveman habits for communing with nature that few would admit to so publicly. He says "Every morning I take my dogs out, and when they go I go. I feel like a caveman".

On the differences between men and women he talks about shopping and how when a guy wants to buy something he'll go out and buy it, but women go shopping without any idea what they're going to buy, or even the stores they're going to visit. He likens the whole process to a different sport, something he just does not relate to.

Talking about "What Happens in Vegas" Kutcher said "When I first got the script I was totally set on not doing another comedy. But then I read like, the first 30 pages and laughed out loud, really hard multiple times, so clearly there was something there".

The movie is a battle of the sexes, romantic comedy, about two strangers who marry on a whim in Vegas. They end up trying to outwit each other in order to get their hands on a $3 million jackpot. It is an extremely funny love story in reverse. On the subject of getting hitched to a stranger and then getting acquainted, Kutcher said "Well what we're all normally doing doesn't seem to be working very well, so why not do something different?"

Working through the themes of the movie, Ashton talks on topics from relationships, to alcohol, specifically acts of stupidity committed under the influence. In particular he tells one story where he passed out for a couple of hours on a frozen river!

Kutcher has appeared in many comedy movies including "Just Married", "My Bosses Daughter" and "Guess Who"; his TV hits include "That 70s Show" and his personal brainchild "Punk'd". All are available to rent from Blockbuster.co.uk
