Ashton Kutcher was spotted out grabbing breakfast after revealing his reaction to the release of his ex-wife Demi Moore’s bombshell memoir which detailed their marriage, Inside Out.
The actor, 44, was pictured leaving Jayde’s restaurant in Los Angeles on Wednesday, his hands full with a cup of coffee and to-go bag of food.
He strode across the street rocking a double denim look with a beanie propped atop his head.
Despite a source previously claiming that he ‘knew what was coming’ in Moore’s memoir, Kutcher revealed to Esquire that he was ‘f**king pissed’ after his former spouse released the book in 2019.
‘I’d finally gotten to a place where the press had really laid off me and [wife Mila Kunis], and my life and my family. And then the next day, [the paparazzi] are at my kids’ school,’ the father-of-two reflected of the renewed interest of his first marriage following the release of the book.

The That ’70s Show alum then stopped himself mid-sentence, before concluding that he doesn’t ‘want to open anything up in that realm.’
Ashton enjoyed some solo time during his breakfast outing, and appeared deep in thought as he departed the restaurant.
The That 70’s Show alum wore a black top beneath his denim shirt, in addition to baggy jeans belted at his waist. His trousers were rolled up at the ankle, displaying his black sneakers.
During his Esquire interview, the People’s Choice Award winner recalled exactly how his ‘life changed’ the ‘moment’ news broke over his relationship with Moore, who is 15 years his senior.
After they walked down the aisle in 2005, Kutcher then aged 26 became a stepfather to her three younger daughters Rumer, who was 12, Scout, then 10, and Tallulah, then eight. They are now 34, 31 and 28.
‘I was twenty-six, bearing the responsibility of an eight-year-old, a ten-year-old, and a twelve-year-old,’ he said of becoming a stepfather in his mid-twenties. ‘That’s how some teen parents must experience their twenties.’
Kutcher also reflected on Moore’s devastating miscarriage during their marriage, which occurred six months into her pregnancy.
‘Losing a kid that you think you’re going to have, and that close to thinking you’re going to have a kid, is really, really painful,’ he said.

The star continued: ‘Everyone deals with that in different ways.’
‘I love kids,’ Kutcher pointed out. ‘I wouldn’t have gotten married to a woman that had three kids if I didn’t love kids. The idea of having another kid would have been incredible.’ But Kutcher wouldn’t change what happened. He accepts that moment. ‘For whatever reason, I had to have that experience.’
After grieving the loss of their baby-to-be, Kutcher struggled with feeling like a ‘failure’ after their marriage ended.

‘Nothing makes you feel like a failure like divorce,’ he said. ‘Divorce feels like a wholesale f**king failure. You failed at marriage.’
As for his relationship with Kunis, who he wed in 2015 after three years of dating, the performer raved that ‘the thing about’ his wife that made their ‘relationship accelerate was’ how he ‘always admired her.’
‘Her talents, her skills, her gifts. But I knew that she didn’t need me. And she knew that I didn’t need her. We already knew all of each other’s dirt. My wife is so much cooler than me,’ the SAG nominee gushed.
