Ashton Kutcher Reveals Why He Returned To ‘That ’70s Show’ Spinoff With Mila Kunis

Jackie and Kelso are back! In other words, they’re doing the same thing they did nearly 20 years ago: Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are returning to the world of “That ’70s Show.”

In the new Netflix spinoff “That ’90s Show,” the pair who portrayed love interests on the popular 2000s comedy as teenagers before getting married in real life years later, will reprise their roles as Kelso and Jackie.

In order to show their appreciation for how the program altered their lives, Kutcher and Kunis chose to reprise the roles that made them famous.

“Mila and I were contemplating it,” the actor told Variety Monday at the premiere of his new movie, “Vengeance.” “We thought, ‘Listen, we’re only in the position that we’re in because of that show, so let’s just go back and do this.’ We just went back and had fun for a week. It was so random and fun.”

“It was really nostalgic to be back on the set,” Kutcher continued. “It’s all the same folks that made ‘That ’70s Show,’ so it was pretty bizarre.”

The spinoff, which picks up 15 years after the final episode of the series, will feature almost all of the original cast members. Fox broadcast “That ’70s Show” from 2001 until 2006 for eight seasons.

In 2022, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis go to the 94th Academy Awards together.

“That ’90s Show” will follow Leia (Callie Haverda), the daughter of Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna (Laura Prepon), who “bonds with a new generation of Point Place kids under the watchful eye of Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) and the stern glare of Red (Kurtwood Smith),” while visiting them for the summer, according to the official synopsis.

“Sex, drugs, and rock ’n roll never dies, it just changes clothes,” the logline reads.

While Danny Masterson, who is awaiting trial on three separate allegations of rape, won’t be a part of the series, other original cast members Wilmer Valderrama and Tommy Chong will.

The new group of young performers, which includes Ashley Aufderheide, Reyn Doi, Maxwell Acee Donovan, Sam Morelos, and Mace Coronel, was praised as “phenomenal” by Kutcher, who also teased that the program is “very humorous.”

Netflix has received 10 episodes of the comedy, although no release date has been set as of yet.

The spinoff will mark Kutcher and Kunis’ first on-screen collaboration since tying the knot in 2012 after years of friendship and on-screen flings.

“Yep, in the show [we kissed], with no feelings whatsoever,” Kunis said on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast back in 2018 about filming “That ’70s Show” with Kutcher. “It’s the weirdest story that nobody believes, but it’s God’s honest truth. There was nothing there, and it was like … whatever.

Ashton Kutcher got married to Demi Moore in 2005 and split up in 2011. Mila Kunis also broke up with her long-term partner Macaulay Culkin. Years later, after bumping into each other at an awards ceremony, the two started dating. Years later, after bumping into each other at an awards ceremony, the two started dating.

She continued, “We would have never been together if we didn’t both go through what we went through in order to be the people that we were when we reconnected.”

‘Honey Boo Boo’ star Alana Thompson, all set to undergo a $13k weight loss surgery

Alana Thompson, star of “Honey Boo Boo,” stated on Wednesday that she will be visiting New York City shortly after turning 17 to have weight-loss surgery. Thompson previously competed in child beauty pageants.

According to TMZ, Thompson, 16, will receive a suture sculpt endoscopic sleeve from Steven Batash, who was recently named one of New York’s top weight-loss physicians.

Thompson is also worried that the weight she had gained is genetic and sees the procedure as the only available route to take to be healthier.

‘Honey Boo Boo’ star Alana Thompson, to undergo a $13k weight loss surgery

The reality TV actress will undergo the $13,000 operation in Queens in August with the hopes of losing 150 pounds from her current weight of 275, according to her manager Gina Rodriguez.

Thompson, a former Toddlers & Tiaras celebrity, is thought to weigh roughly 275 pounds. After attempting to lose weight through dieting, the adolescent reportedly started to worry that her additional weight was genetic and that surgery was her only option for achieving her goals.

Several members of Alana Thompson's family have expressed their support for the expensive procedure.

Fortunately, she won’t be undergoing the treatment by herself. Along with her, her 20-year-old partner Dralin Carswell will have the same procedure as they start their healthy living campaign together.

After dating for a few months, the couple made their relationship Instagram official for the first time in September 2021.

The news of Thompson’s operation comes only a few weeks after it was announced that her mother, “Mama June” Shannon, had given her sister, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, 22, custody of  Alana Thompson.

Alana Thompson is scheduled to receive weight-loss surgery shortly after her 17th birthday by a NYC doctor.

A Georgia judge awarded Shannon sole custody of her sister, saying: “It is in the best interest of the child that the plaintiff is awarded sole custody.”

Since April 2019, when their mother’s drug difficulties deteriorated, Shannon has been Thompson’s guardian. She was not only detained on suspicion of cocaine possession in October 2018, but she also lost money by selling the family’s Georgia property at a loss.

In addition to having the power to decide how the young celebrity is cared for on a daily basis, Shannon also has the exclusive power to approve more significant decisions, including the one to have weight loss surgery.

Honey Boo Boo,16, hits back at people and defends the age gap with Her 21-Year-Old Boyfriend and

The reality TV star Honey Boo Boo has clapped back at people who came forward to criticize her relationship with an elder boy. Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, the reality star’s older sister, who was given exclusive custody of Thompson in April, also supported the contentious relationship. She has been dating Dralin Carswell, age 21, for about a year and a half.

She claims that the relationship has been criticised for a variety of reasons, but she is unconcerned by the opinions of others.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said: “In our relationship, the two most things that everybody is always talking about is our age gap and definitely because he’s black and I’m white and we’re an interracial couple.

“I don’t care because, like, at the end of the day, my sister approves, his mum approves, and we’re happy, so what fans got to say or what haters got to say I don’t really care.”

She further said: “I like how it’s never quiet when we’re around each other, we’re always talking about something – it’s never like an awkward moment, silence or none of that. We’re always just talking about something.”

After making an appearance on the reality series Toddlers & Tiaras, Honey Boo Boo gained notoriety at a young age.

With the family’s own show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, thanks to her popularity, she currently has one million Instagram followers.

She also disclosed to Entertainment Tonight that she is “still working on” undergoing possible weight loss surgery.

“I just wanna make sure that this is actually something I wanna do before I just go and do it,” she said. “I wanna make sure that it’s, like, not something that’s, like, gonna kill me.”

She acknowledged that she lacked motivation to follow a diet and exercise routine and claimed that having surgery might be the simplest method to lose weight.

She said: “I know for a fact I could get in the gym and I know for a fact I could diet and I know for a fact I can do this to lose my weight.

“I’ve tried. I will say I’ve tried, but the one thing with me is I have no motivation. I have no motivation to just keep going to the gym every day.

“I have no motivation to keep eating healthy because, like, I’m gonna eat what I think is good. I’m not [gonna] sit there and force myself to eat no Caesar salad because I think it’s healthy. No. I’m gonna eat what I think’s good.

“So, I just think I don’t have motivation, and I feel like the surgery would be, like, probably the easiest way to just, like, lose it fast.”

Warner Bros. Was Sued By Tattoo Artist For Copying Mike Tyson’s Famous Tattoo In Hangover II

S. Victor Whitmill, a tattoo artist, sued Warner Brothers for copyright infringement in connection with the movie The Hangover. Whitmill claimed that the facial tattoo that Ed Helms wore in The Hangover II violated his copyright in the tattoo because it was a replica of the one that Whitmill created for boxing champion Mike Tyson.

S. Victor Whitmill, the tattoo artist who gave Tyson his renowned tribal tattoo, really filed a lawsuit against the entertainment industry back in 2011.

Nearly a month after the Hangover II reached theatres, in June of that year, the lawsuit was resolved.

Whitmill claimed Warner Bros. never contacted him to obtain his consent to use the artwork and that the tattoo Ed Helms’ character received in the movie violated the copyrighted tattoo he had needled into Tyson’s face.

The matter was resolved after an “all-day” mediation, but the contents of the agreement weren’t made public.

The victory, which The Hollywood Reporter exclusively detailed more than ten years ago, spared Warner Bros. the need to digitally remove Stu’s tattoo.

Whitmill’s attorney Geoff Gerber said at the time: “Warner Bros. and Mr. Whitmill have amicably resolved their dispute. No other information will be provided.”

Whitmill’s lawyer’s official complaint filing read: “When Mr. Whitmill created the Original Tattoo, Mr. Tyson agreed that Mr. Whitmill would own the artwork and thus, the copyright in the Original Tattoo.

“Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. — without attempting to contact Mr. Whitmill, obtain his permission, or credit his creation — has copied Mr. Whitmill’s Original Tattoo and placed it on the face of another actor … This unauthorized exploitation of the Original Tattoo constitutes copyright infringement.”

Aside from the unfortunate face tattoo, Helms’ character Stu in the alcoholic trilogy had a notoriously difficult time of it, even pulling out his own front tooth with a pair of pliers in the first film.

Helms previously admitted that, although a rusty set of pliers wasn’t the real culprit, he actually had a missing tooth when the movie was being made.

Back in 2009, Helms explained: “It is totally real. I have an implant. An adult tooth never came in and when I was 16, they did a permanent implant.”

He added: “We started to do different tests with prosthetics and blacking it out and nothing worked.

“I wasn’t eager to take out my implant because my mouth is healthy, but I talked to my dentist and he was like, ‘Yeah we can do it!’ My dentist was really into it.”

Chris Evans Says He’s ‘Laser-Focused on Finding a Partner’ to Spend His Life With

Chris Evans revealed he is “laser-focused” on finding a companion to “spend [his] life with” in an unabashedly open discussion about his romantic life. The new Netflix movie “The Gray Man” stars the 41-year-old “Captain America” actor as an assassin who is fixated on finding his target, along with Ryan Gosling.

When Shondaland questioned him about what he was “laser-focused on” in his life, he replied that he was starting a new relationship.

“I’m gonna give you a good answer,” he replied to the question.

“The answer would be that maybe [I’m] laser-focused on finding a partner – someone that you want to live [with].”

The actor continued by saying: “Look – I love what I do. It’s great; I pour all of myself into it.”

However, he added: “This industry is full of pockets of doubt, hesitation, and recalibration.

“In terms of really trying to find someone that you really can pour all of yourself into, maybe it’s about trying to find someone that you’re looking to spend your life with.”

Ever since breaking up with his last known girlfriend, comedian Jenny Slate, in 2018, Evans has kept a very low profile regarding his romantic life. Evans began dating Slate in 2016. Prior to that, he was involved for seven years with actress Minka Kelly, a relationship that ended in 2014.

Between 2001 and 2006, he was also romantically linked to Jessica Biel, another actor.

Meanwhile, Evans has been getting favorable reviews from critics, as shown by the Toy Story spinoff Lightyear, which has an average rating of 75% on review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes.

Although it doesn’t take place in the same universe as the run of original Toy Story movies, the plot centers on a young Buzz Lightyear, in addition to earning $213 million at the box office, the movie has received some generally favorable reviews.

The Wall Street Journal wrote: “Pixar isn’t trying to mint a new classic here, nor to win another Oscar, so viewers stand a solid chance of getting through the movie without crying. 

“It’s nice to know that Team Pixar can still recognize the importance of fun.”

However, it’s also received some flack, with The Observer saying: “For a film which shoots for the stars, this is disappointingly pedestrian stuff.”

Chris Evans has been recently rumored to be involved with Selena Gomez too. Well, we hope you find the true love of your life soon.
