Ashton Kutcher Talks Dumb Questions

“I think that is complete and utter bulls**t.” He continued, “I understand why they said it, because they wanted to inspire curiosity in us as kids and encourage us to learn….but there is a dumb question. A dumb question is any question that you can simply find the answer to by applying some personal effort. And now that the internet exists , we can no longer say there is no such thing as a dumb question. If you can say buddy, ‘go look it up,’ it is a dumb question.”
Kutcher spoke about his daughter calling her beautiful and he also spoke about his fiancee, Kunis, saying he gets to have sex with her. He was speaking to Kunis about her upcoming movie, Jupiter Ascending, and the press junket she attended.
