Ashton Kutcher is likely to get a raise for his role in Two and a Half Men. Kutcher has kept the show going since Charlie Sheen’s exit and the heart throb is believed to be the highest-paid star in TV comedy; he makes approximately $700,000 per episode.
Prior to taking on the role it was estimated that Kutcher would receive $8-900,000 per episode and many people felt that he would not be an adequate replacement.
Sheen was interviewed by ABC news and said Ashton is, “doing the best he can…um I don’t think the role is cursed, umm but I’m, I’m extremely disappointed with uh … how they are handling what I left behind.” You can watch the YouTube video here.
Despite his recent success with the show he has been getting a lot of attention for his failed marriage with Demi Moore.
It has been rumored that Ashton and Demi had an open marriage — and after one of his alleged mistresses came out, Demi was upset because he did not disclose his relations with the woman.
The affair has broken Demi’s heart and she wants to punish him financially for his indiscretion.
