Kudos to Ashton. Whether he meant to or not, he espoused true Conservative points that young kids NEEDED to hear. Coming from someone of his stature, I hope and pray it was well received (and influenced) on those who heard it.

I guess there is a lot more to Ashton Kutcher than being Demi Moore’s former boy toy.
I am glad for him, except I really did want that job.

“Build a life....don’t live one.” Does that actually mean anything?

So different than Kelso's last viral video in which he and the former Mrs. Kelso pledged servitude to Barry.

Which one will the kids heed more? For that matter, which one does he?

Awesome.......2.6 million views. Definitely viral and don’t be surprised when Barack Obama somehow weaves himself into this with Kutcher.

Good ... young people need to know that work is not a dirty word and that the garbage that the MSM spews is NOT reality.

I really believe Ashton stumbled upon these eternal verities which also just happen to be conservative values. He may be shocked when he realizes that.

I've been watching this guy the last few days and really liked what he had to say. He was also on Charlie Rose and talked about unleashing/funding entrepreneurs. The man is an unapologetic capitalist. I might have to see this "Jobs" movie.

I read an article on him. Seems that he's a pretty sharp guy, majored in some flavor of engineering.

Yet, he's made a pile of money by playing a doofus. Go figure.

I believe Kutchner is somewhat of a conservative on taxes.

Not so much on social stuff, environment, etc.

I still remember that pro-Obama YouTube he and Demi made in '08. It was disgusting.

Oh no, he was giving viewers some good advice?

Is that allowed?

Has the Teen Choice Awards and the TV channel apologized yet?

Well, opportunity looks a lot like hard work, and she seems to be a very high-maintenance model. I'm not sure I'd be up to that level of opportunity.

Yes, he was undoubtedly inspired by playing Steve Jobs, who, by the way, was also a liberal democrat. People like that have been having political beliefs contradictory to their own personal philosophies for a long time.

Whoa! I am shocked! I don’t “follow” the lives of any of the Hollyweird crowd but this helps to restore some of the lost faith in people.

Thank you Chris (Ashton) for this speech as many children today do not hear it from their own parents!

“Whoo...!”

Never in a speech has this been more annoying. What he was saying was important, and they moved heaven and earth to dumb down his message.

Great speech —really fantastic— but I couldn’t help noticing that he baaaarely triumphed over these moussed-up, glassy-eyed slubberdegullions.

Chris? What is so unsual about that? Does it stand for Christian, or Christopher? Is he implying that he couldn’t get a job in hedonistic Hollywood with a Christian first name?

Don’t a lot of people change their names when they become actors to a better suited “stage name”? Chris might have been too plain and common....so they went with his middle name (which is still his name).

What’s so wrong with that?

There was probably a Chris Kutcher who appeared in three blaxsploitation films in the early 70’s, but has dibs on the name, so the Screen Actors Guild made him pick another.

Best line of the speech, IMO....

Everything around us, that we call life, was made up of people that are no smarter than you! And you can build your own thing...your own life that others can live in...so build one, find your opportunity.

I imagine he is still a strong Democrat, but I will give him props for delivering a message that those kids needed to hear in an environment where he did not have to do so.

people, people, people... he’s a lefty promoting a movie of a guy that epitomized capitalism. He needs to get the audience into the theater.

If he believes this, why does he support Obama?

Hmm... Maybe he learned something, but then again, I think he is a pretty smart guy. He could possibly be talking like this lately to build up the movie and to try to reach more people to watch it.
I’ll keep an eye on him, with cautious optomism. I have to see a whole lot more than a few weeks before a movie, or after. I’m talking years.

In my experience, the point at which Democrats actually start thinking is the point at which they leave the party and go Republican or Independent.

Michael Keaton’s real name is Michael Douglas, but per SAG rules since Kirk Douglas’ son already had it, a change was necessary.

Don't care much. Hundreds of other people give inspirational speeches every day but are pretty much ignored.

Kutchner is over-rated. Immoral as well. And has done damage with his pro-Obama junk.

There was a time when Marion Morrison had to change his name to John Wayne to be thought of as a manly man. But ASHTON Kutcher from Chris Kutcher? It seems pointless, unless his handlers thought he’d be more acceptable as a ‘girly’ man. And then there is the whole Christian image in a town where the “in” crorwd are all scientologists.
