: Do you know a lot ofpeople that are like yourcharacter in LA?
Ashton Kutcher: I think everyoneis like this character in someway, shape or orm … This is justmore o a dramatic version o what we all are. Think about it:you did something you thoughtwas bad, but it wasn’t as bad asyou thought it was going to be— like when you sneak a beer romyour parents or take a pu rom acigarette behind their backs. It’s acompromised situation …
You are listed as a produceron this lm, but you didquite a bit more to get thislm made than usual,didn’t you?
Everything rom top to bottom,rom choosing the script tohiring the director to hiring theDP to picking the catering all theway through to post-production.I didn’t put up the money but wewent out and got the money. Ibasically gave the tools needed toget the movie made.

Yeah, it was un, and it wasgreat to be in Los Angeles. Thereare so ew movies shot in LosAngeles with a real house andreal things. The cast was antasticand un to hang out with, and westayed within our budget, whichwas nice, but really hard to doshooting out there.
