Lea Michele gushing over her New Year's Eve co-star Ashton Kutcher sounds especially amusing now knowing that if she really wanted a piece of his ass, Ashton would have been more than happy to serve it up. From her interview with New York Magazine:
Were you cast first in New Year's Eve, or was Ashton [Kutcher]?
"I was. I think I was one of the first people cast."
So were you curious what star they'd cast as your love interest?
"I was! [Director Garry Marshall] was like, 'Who do you think is cute? What guys do you like? Who do you want to be in this movie with you?' And I was like, 'I don't know, I've never been asked before!' I didn't mention Ashton's name just because, I gotta say, I kinda felt like he was a little out of my league. You know, this guy's like, the hottest guy, and then when they called and said that Ashton was doing it, I was really freaked out. I thought I should have picked someone else and said, 'You have to use this person!' so I wouldn't have been nervous. But I'm so glad, because he challenged me, and it was a really great pairing, I think."
Oh good God, Leah. Can you put your panties in the dryer? It's only Ashton Kutcher for Christ's sake. Why are you so excited to be working with another B-lister like yourself? The only difference between this ass-clown and the guy who played Fez on That '70s Show is that Fez has the dignity to not slide in on Charlie Sheen's or Bruce Willis' sloppy seconds. And do you really think it's a good idea that Kutcher was cast because you thought he's cute? Clearly you don't respect Kelso's acting ability and neither does Marshall. You're right, he is the 2011 version of Lionel Jefferson, but part of your job is to sell this guy like the next (insert generic RomCom star here). Trust me, there are bigger and better stars you can let into your slit, stupid.
