Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis Wrote Support Letters for Danny Masterson

Danny Masterson received support letters from Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis before he was sentenced to 30 years in jail on Thursday. Kutcher and Kunis, who appeared alongside Masterson in “That ’70s Show,” are married.

The pair vouched for Masterson’s conduct and asked for leniency in their letters, which were originally published by Los Angeles court reporter Meghann Cuniff and writer Tony Ortega.

Nearly 50 people wrote letters in support of Masterson, including Kunis and Kutcher. In May, the actor was found guilty on two counts of rape.

Ashton Kutcher wrote: I am a father, an actor, an investor, and a philanthropist. In 1998, I was 20 years old when I met Danny Masterson.

He quickly became a friend, devoted coworker, and a role model for me. And has been for the past 25 years. Danny has been nothing but a wonderful influence on me as a friend. He is an exceptionally honest and deliberate human being.

Over a quarter-century friendship I don’t recall him ever lying to me. He’s taught me to be direct and tackle challenges in my life and relationships head on, resolve them, and move on. Danny is someone who is always available when you need him.

We’ve travelled the world together, raised our girls together, and experienced numerous family moments together. Not only is he a good friend to me, but I’ve seen him be a good friend to others and the kind of brother that others would be fortunate to have. Danny has continually been a wonderful role model.

Danny is directly responsible for me not sliding into the normal Hollywood drug life. He made it plain that if we met or interacted with someone who was on drugs or did drugs, that person would not be a 200d person to be friends with.

And that implied to me that if I did drugs, he wouldn’t want to be friends with me, which is something I would never risk or jeopardise. I appreciate the good peer pressure he provided.

He also established a high bar for how you should treat others. We were in a pizza parlour when a hostile man entered and started berating his girlfriend.

We’d never met or seen these people before, but Danny was the first to come to her defence. He didn’t have to get involved in this situation, but he did since this man’s behaviour was unacceptable. He has always shown decency, equality, and charity to others.

Danny became a vocal supporter of the firefighters affected by the events of September 11, encouraging his friends and coworkers to help in any way they could. Danny’s daughter was born a year before mine. He provided the example of a hands-on father.

We’ve spent endless hours together with our kids, and he’s one of the few individuals I’d let alone with my son and daughter. He’s also a dedicated and faithful husband who is completely committed to his wife.

We’ve put in hundreds of hours together. Danny takes his job very seriously. He is pleasant, nice, and hardworking. He treated everyone as equals, from the grips to the teamsters to the actors to the caterers.

He was usually on time and always pulled his weight. We’ve also travelled the world together to promote our work. I can honestly say that no matter where we were or who we were with, my friend was always the same.

While I am aware that he has been found guilty on two counts of rape by force and that the victims are eager for justice, I hope that my testimony about his character is taken into account in punishment.

I do not feel he is a continuing societal hazard, and raising his daughter without a present father would be a tertiary injustice in and of itself. “I appreciate you taking the time to read this.”

Kutcher has previously stated his support for Masterson. In an earlier interview with Esquire in 2023, he stated that he was still in contact with his former coworker.

“Someday, his kid is going to read about this,” Kutcher expressed concern, but said that he was also mindful of victims. “I feel completely for anyone who feels violated in any way.” Kutcher expressed his desire for Masterson to be “found innocent of the charges brought against him,” but added, “I’m not the judge.”

I’m not a judge. I’m not the District Attorney. I am not a victim. And I’m not the accused. So, in that scenario, I don’t have a place to remark,” on his friend’s potential guilt.

Patrick Stewart, A Shakespearean Actor Who Soars In Sci-Fi, Looks Back On His Life In Memoir

Avatar for Kiara Grace




NEW YORK — Famous “Star Trek” captain Patrick Stewart has boldly gone into his past where no one has gone before.

The actor spent most of the pandemic at his computer composing his memoir, which will be released this autumn under “Making It So,” a phrase he borrowed from “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

“My long-term memory is extremely robust. Memory after memory and sensation and sensation and feelings all scuttled back the moment I turned the key on day one, Stewart, 83, said in a Zoom interview from his residence in Los Angeles.

It is a remarkable tale of a child who grew up poor in northern England, became a great Shakespearean stage actor, and then a sci-fi movie icon aboard the USS Enterprise and in the “X-Men” film series.

He grew up in a home without a lavatory or a bathroom, sold furniture as a young man, and worked his way up the regional theatre ranks in England — including touring and a crush on Vivien Leigh — before a 14-year run with the Royal Shakespeare Company and a rise to fame in Los Angeles.

Stewart says in the interview that authoring the book has been a highly therapeutic experience. “I know my therapist is among those anticipating the book the most. I anticipate hearing, “Why didn’t you tell me about this?”

If there is one shadow, it is that of Stewart’s father, a former British Army regimental sergeant prone to violent eruptions against his mother.

Stewart writes about how he and his elder brother, Trevor, braced for nights when their dad came home drunk and angry. “Sometimes with an outstretched hand, and sometimes with a closed fist. He consistently targeted her cranium.”

Stewart wonders if the violence initiated his career. “The stage would prove to be a safe space, a refuge from real life, in which I could inhabit another person, living in another place and time,” he writes.

Other portraits emerge of those who were kind to Stewart along the way, such as Paul McCartney, Rod Steiger, and Kirk Douglas, as well as those who were not: Stewart commanding one of Gene Roddenberry’s starships was never acceptable to “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry or “Dune” director David Lynch.

“I wanted to be truthful, but I also wanted to be respectful and cautious. The most difficult aspect of the experience was determining how much I should say. What should I refrain from saying?

“It’s almost certain that someone will come forward and say, ‘How dare you?'” That is ludicrous.’ I’ve brought this upon myself. But I took it extremely seriously.”

Stewart, preparing to portray Hamlet in 1966, is given an hour-long tutorial by the late great director Peter Hall, widely regarded as the most influential figure in modern British theatre.

Stewart says, “When the hour was up and I checked my notebook, it contained nothing but scribbles.” “I realised that he had opened up this text to me in ways that no one else had ever done before.”

The grace with which he dealt with premature receding is a further example. Stewart would audition with a hairpiece, then remove it and make his case: two actors for the price of one.

Stewart dedicates the book to two influential instructors who instilled in him a passion for Shakespeare and inspired him to pursue a career in acting. Later in his 40s, when he was asked to portray Jean-Luc Picard, a 24th-century starship captain, his appreciation for Shakespeare would prove beneficial.

“The etiquette of their speech and demeanor reminds me of numerous Shakespearean situations in which I had participated onstage. I realized that I should portray Jean Luc as if he were a character from “Henry IV,” which is about courageous men.

Later in life, Stewart explored his sense of humor by donning crustacean costumes and lending his voice to Seth MacFarlane cartoons. People believed it would be entertaining to watch me play against type, he writes.

Throughout the memoir, Stewart is just as critical of himself as anyone else. Again and again, he confesses to mistakes or being unnecessarily stiff, at one point calling himself a “pompous ass.” Stewart explains that his relationship with his offspring is “a work in progress.”

“I needed to do better by the women with whom I was romantically involved,” he writes in one section. My two unsuccessful marriages are my greatest regret in a life filled with happiness and accomplishments.

Writing the book became “some of the happiest days of my life,” he says, despite pausing the audiobook a few times because he was weeping.

Sunny, his wife, observed that he appeared lighter and cheerful after a writing session. “She said I would come down smiling and kind of glowing because of the whole experience of going back.”

Taylor Swift Watches Travis Kelce’s Chiefs Take On The Jets At MetLife Stadium

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey — Taylor Swift could not pass up another opportunity to observe Travis Kelce play football.

The 12-time Grammy Award winner arrived at MetLife Stadium approximately forty minutes before Sunday night’s kickoff to witness Travis and his Kansas City Chiefs defeat the New York Jets 23-20.

Swift, wearing blue jean shorts, a black long-sleeved top, and a leather jacket, entered the stadium’s security area with actors Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, and Hugh Jackman, as captured by SNY. NBC’s broadcast cut to Swift multiple times during the game, including a shot of the pop star with her arm around Donna Kelce, who was donning her son’s No. 87 jersey.

Swift’s appearance comes a week after she attended Arrowhead Stadium, dressed in red and white, to witness the Chiefs’ 41-10 home victory over the Chicago Bears with Donna Kelce. Swift accepted the All-Pro tight end’s invitation to observe the game and had to see more of Travis and the Chiefs in action.

Taylor Swift is on a break from her Eras Tour, which resumes on November 9 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Travis acknowledges Swift’s daring appearance at the Chiefs game but remains tight-lipped about their relationship. Twenty minutes before commencement, NBC aired a tour advertisement.

Swift is familiar with MetLife Stadium, having performed three sold-out concerts there in May. Two of those performances were attended by Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who returned to the team this past weekend after tearing his left Achilles tendon on the fourth play of his September 11 debut.

Rodgers attended a squad meeting on Saturday evening and was at the stadium to observe player warmups on Sunday evening.

Swift and Kelce have not disclosed details about their relationship. Kelce stated on his podcast “New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce” earlier this week that Swift “looked amazing” at the contest.

Regarding her time spent in the suite, Kelce stated, “Everyone was speaking positively about her.” “Moreover, the day proceeded flawlessly for Chiefs fans. Naturally, we plan everything, ladies and gentlemen.”

Kelce invited Swift to that game after failing to present her a friendship bracelet during the Kansas City stop of her Eras Tour.
