Demi Moore’s hubby Ashton Kutcher dropped into London yesterday to attend the premiere of his brill new flick What Happens In Vegas – which also stars the wonderful Cameron Diaz.
Sadly Cam couldn’t make the red carpet after the shock death of her father last week but Ashton wowed the fans in Leicester Square. He was knackered after literally flying in and out for the UK promotional tour of the movie. He told me he loves London. Ash said: “It’s great to be here. It’s weird – I go to work and have people yell at me on red carpets.”
Talking of Cameron he added: “I think Cameron’s the leading comedic leading lady – I don’t know of another one. She’s a gem and a beautiful person on top of that.”
In the film Ashton plays a commitment phobe trader who can’t hold down a job while Cameron plays a straight laced organised young lady. But Ash told me that he loved being in Vegas and is naturally insanely competitive. He said: “I’m a really competitive person and that’s what I have in common with the character in the movie. I hate to lose. It’s the last thing in the world I want to happen.”
Mr Moore was joined on the carpet by lots of other stars. Some more talented than others. Wannabe WAG Danielle Lloyd told me she’d had her hair done since attending the Three and Out premiere the night before and that she wanted to “look like Barbie”, Stephen Tompkinson revealed he’s going to be the executive producer of the next series of Wild At Heart and will have a hand in searching for a replacement for Amanda Holden’s character as the female lead and nine Nancy’s from I’d Do Anything showed up for the red carpet too.
I asked Ashton if he would ever consider doing a musical in the future. He replied: “I’m a big fan of musicals and I did Pirates of Penzance when I was in school! I don’t think I’m very good. I’m a poor singer. If I got cast in one then I would do it. I love Guys and Dolls. If I could do a musical I’d do that one.”
The after party was held at the Empire Casino in Leicester Square and I sat and gambled with Danielle Lloyd and lovely Casualty star Georgina Bouzova and her handsome pal Slick Rick. We lost all our money! Oh well!
