Itís fairly safe to say that viewers donít tune in to the Teen Choice Awards in hopes of hearing incredibly insightful advice about the importance hard work, perseverance and dreaming big ó but thatís exactly what they got from Ashton Kutcher this year.
(Excerpt) Read more at theblaze.com ...
Good for him.
“Build a life....don’t live one.” Does that actually mean anything?
Which one will the kids heed more? For that matter, which one does he?
Good words are good enough in this case. Sounds like he’s doing some growing up.
Good for him. Maybe some of the cellphone generation will actually listen to him.
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.
It was nice hearing a celebrity actually make sense for a change..Good for him..great speech..hope the kids heard it..young people look up to him maybe they were inspired by his speech, hopefully
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.
The Obamanation often pretends to revere conservative values.
If you use Acme’s 21st Century Gobbledygook Decoder Ring it does!
Yet, he's made a pile of money by playing a doofus. Go figure.
The commissars back at the White Hut aren’t going to like that one bit. . . .
If comes out of Hollywood it is Hollywood. Of course I don’t play or live by anything out of Hollywood.
I’m man enough to admit I was wrong about this guy. I thought he was a punk. He’s a good and thoughtful man.
Sounds like he’s doing a Steve Jobs, learning from his role as Jobs in his film, released this weekend.
He’s good Midwestern stock, raised in Iowa.
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.
Who KNEW he was more mature than Demi!!
People should stop paying attention to Hollyweird
Next thing you know he’s gonna find himself at the Republican Convention standing next to an empty chair...
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!
I get it as...
Instead of just going through life watching everyone around you doing everything for you, get off your ass and build your own path.
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?
I doubt it.
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.
I get it as Build the life you want to live, don’t just live a life that you think you’re supposed to, or what you’re told to live.
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.
Maybe he’s changed....in 2009 he was in a video pledging allegiance to Barack Obama. No kidding.
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.
Yep, movie promotion time. Oprah creates a scene in Swaziland, or wherever, this dude, whoever he is, makes a speech! About himself.
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.
Kutchner is over-rated. Immoral as well. And has done damage with his pro-Obama junk.
Wow - didn’t know Kelso had it in him
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.
