Ashton Kutcher is getting toned and tough - so he can fend for himself and look after his family following an Armageddon-type crisis.
The movie star and producer, who is married to health nut Demi Moore, fears a major U.S. energy meltdown is nigh and he's trying to get superfit so he can deal with the chaos that will follow a blackout or worse.
Kutcher discovered combat training Krav Maga last year as he prepared to tone up for his role in Killers and now he's obsessed with running, Bikram yoga and Muay Thai fighting with the French national champion - and he insists he's committed to his extreme workouts, so he can dominate in desperate times.
The 32 year old tells Men's Fitness magazine, "It will not take much for people to hit the panic button. The amount of convenience that people rely on based on electricity alone. You start taking out electricity and satellites, and people are going to lose their noodle.
"And people are going to go, 'That land's not yours, prove that it's yours,' and the only thing you have to prove it's yours is on an electronic file... People's alarm systems at their homes will no longer work, Neither will our heating, our garbage disposals, hot-water heaters that run on gas but depend on electricity.
"What happens when all our modern conveniences fail? I'm going to be ready to take myself and my family to a safe place where they don't have to worry... All of my physical fitness regimen is completely tailored around the end... I stay fit for no other reason than to save the people I care about."
And he admits he tasted what life could be like after a major national or international calamity when he, Moore and her kids were left without power for 14 hours at their mountain cabin last Christmas.
He adds, "I got my guns out. We made a fire. We went to the grocery store... People were rolling in and out, clearing out all the shelves... It was like a preview."
Correct. Neighborhoods and communities will band together and help each other. Most of the folks are not savages. I don't think it will go easily on the folks that put us in the mess though.
He sounds behind the curve to me. Lots of us here at FR get our gun out to go down to Kroger and such. It’s part of your kit, like your wallet, keys, cell phone, and comb.
You do not understand the power of the Force.
Nononono...he didn’t say guns...he meant *guns* as in arms!! He’s all buff now ‘cause he’s been working out. He got his guns out to look tough!
LOL If 14hrs is what he considered survival skills he is so not prepared.
I wonder if the “types” who gave GPS/address ect to Bristols new digs are going to out the Kuchers GPS of their secret cabin proximity. Fair Game.
Speaking of he better think a little bit more outside of his body fitness and get some range time in along with some good hunting skills.
Impossible rumor has it that they all fell Freep overboard.
Same thing keeps happening to me.
I really need to get rid of that damn canoe!
Not so much.
Our brick brained “got snacks” big dopey Labrador seems brilliant compared to Kucher.
Who will he be turning into the Authorities kind?
Bomb shelters were pretty popular during the Cold War 1950’s. I remember Civil Defense drills in grade school. Then it all seeemed to drop out of favor.
Doesn't faze me anymore, it's just Franz and that is his gig. It's cool.
Krav Maga won’t stop bullets.
Probably slept through 10. Got pissy cause he couldn’t get hot coffee.
What if it happens right after training all day? oboy...
I can’t believe the guy woke up and I really can’t believe he discovered Krave Maga. That is what the Mossad uses. There is still hope for the country.
Ashton will last about ten minutes.
The Gangstas are gonna be looking for trouble.
i have heard that he is a big gun guy for a while now. He and is wife exchanged handguns as anniversary presents. There is a youtube video of him handling guns.
