Ashton Kutcher Invades Chatroulette, Poignantly Lies About Own Films
Perhaps you've heard of Chatroulette, a new video chat website that randomly sets you up to talk to strangers? It's one of those always-fun "cross-sections of humanity" like you see when you go to the DMV, though unlike the DMV, it skews a bit younger and is about half-full of people who are nude or exhorting you to be the same way. Anyway, noted Twitter baron Ashton Kutcher has been spotted using the service, and as screenshots of his experience prove, even celebrities can go on Chatroulette and lie about their filmographies to a complete stranger.
Things started out well enough: After some small talk, Kutcher told his Canadian chat partner that he once shot "a bad film" called Texas Rangers up in Calgary, though when the chatter offered to IMDb it, Kutcher recommended "Don't." Candid, right? Perhaps Kutcher regretted being so open, because when the stranger asked him about his proudest cinematic achievement, Kutcher was forced to indulge in a little resume inflation:
It's nice of Kutcher to throw a little praise to the underseen Personal Effects, but that Michelle Pfeiffer-costarring drama never played Sundance, instead heading straight to DVD (its widest release came when Lifetime acquired it and gave it a television premiere last November). Perhaps Kutcher was thinking of Spread, the gigolo dramedy he starred in that did play Sundance in 2009? Or, perhaps he had just watched the trailer for Killers and had to indulge in a little wishful thinking in order to survive the experience.
