Kutcher: I don’t do Valentine's Day

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore don’t “do” Valentine’s Day.

The 32-year-old actor, who plays a florist in the movie ‘Valentine’s Day’, admitted he and wife Demi would not be marking the romantic occasion as they are so busy with their charity work.

Speaking at the European premiere of the movie in London’s Leicester Square last night, Kutcher said: “We don’t really do Valentine’s Day. Demi and I decided the best way we could share our love was to share it with other people. We set up a foundation called the DNA Foundation to help trafficking victims.

“There’s a group in New York that helps these girls off the streets, and get their life going again. So we’re meeting them on Valentine’s Day this year. We’re gonna do something special for them.”

Despite not celebrating the day with his 47-year-old wife, Ashton does think it is a “great opportunity” for others to show affection.

He said: “I don’t think it’s easy for anyone to show emotions. Valentine’s Day is this great opportunity because we go all year long feeling these feelings and having these thoughts in our head and sometimes we feel like we’re sharing them but we really aren’t.

“On Valentines Day we really get to manifest some of those unspoken things.”
