Ashton Kutcher Disses Keanu Reeves As A "Bad Actor"

msnbc.com

Kutcher Disses KeanuAshton Kutcher has proved his talents as a master thespian time and again as he's plumbed the depths of Kelso's dumbness on "That '70s Show." Still, he may want to think twice before rapping the skills of other actors, especially those who are far more successful than he is.

In response to criticism of his dramatic chops in "Guess Who," Demi Moore's doofier half tells W, "I'll watch a Keanu Reeves movie and I'll go, 'Wow. He's really not a great actor.' But the guy works really hard and keeps doing hit movies." The word you're searching for here? Whoa.

But what goes around comes around, and odds are good Lauren Bacall doesn't think much of Kutcher's résumé, filled as it is with small-screen experience.

"Actors today go into TV, which I don't consider has a lot to do with acting," the persnickety big-screen icon tells Radio Times magazine. "They only think of stardom. If you photograph well, that's enough." (Actually, Ashton does take a mighty purty picture.)

Bacall, 80, rails that we live "in an age of mediocrity," filled with "anorexic-looking" actresses with "minuscule talent." But the husky-voiced former Fancy Feast pitchwoman does have a bit of a soft spot for Hugh Grant, whom she calls "charming" and "marvelous" before cattily adding, "Not a great actor, but he doesn't have to be."

Also hopping on board the bashing bandwagon is Mickey Rourke, who is currently enjoying a career resurrection despite looking almost nothing like the guy who blindfolded and force-fed Kim Basinger in "9 ½ Weeks." The actor claims his descent into Hollywood purgatory has made him grow as a person.

"The little things don't bother me any more," he tells the Times of London. When pressed to elaborate, Rourke shows just how far he's come as he decries a certain publicity-hungry celebutante.

"It has to do with little tiny [bleep] that gets under your skin. Business stuff," the grizzled actor explains. "It's like ... the word 'actress'. You know. Cate Blanchett is an actress. Paris Hilton is not a [bleeping] ... I mean, how can they use that same [bleeping] word? You see hat gets under my [bleeping] skin? You know? It's [bleep] like that. It would make me go off."

Mickey, who obviously missed Paris' fine improvisational skills as she played a rich girl dating a complete loser in her sex video, "One Night in Paris," will likely be impressed with her convincing portrayal of a brunette in the forthcoming comedy "Bottoms Up."

Oh I love Lauren Bacall .

Kutcher is right about Keanu Reeves but it's also true that he is in no position to comment :retard:.

Asston is a joke. Nuff said.

I'd take Keanu over him any day of the week. And unlike Asston, Keanu is an unbelievably nice and classy guy. I had the opportunity to meet him some time ago and he was very courteous and seemed like a genuinely lovable guy.

Keanu isn't the best actor in the world, but Ashton can only dream of pulling in the money that Keanu does.

I have always found that, despite his acting limitations, Keanu is still very watchable and has presence as an actor. Ashton has no acting ability whatsoever. So he can't really comment.

Well, Ashton should know from sucky acting

I have no idea who that Ashton guy is, but you don't have to be a genius to see that Keanu is a lousy actor.

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Keanu Reeves is a pretty damn bad actor but at the end of the day Ashton Kutcher is probably even worse!

Bit rich coming from someone who is still unaccomplished as an actor. Who the hell would know who Kutcher is if not for Demi?

Maybe Ashton forgot that he was replaced by Orlando Bloom in Camreon Crowe's Elizabethtown because he couldn't act. That's gotta hurt, when Orlando is said to be a better actor.

At least Kutcher kinda knows that he's just a former male model who's riding the star making machinery with minimum talent.

I think Keanu actually thinks he can act.

Whoa!

Despite Bacalls' bullshit, there have always been untalented pretty boys and girls in hollywood...the difference is that back then all actors were under contract and had to often make ten or more movies a year (whatever the studio told them to do)...they also had to dress like the studios told them to, wear their hair the way the studios told them to and take speech and manners classes etc.

Often their entire "lives" were made up by the studio; some ex-whore from Bakersfield could get a contract and became America's Sweetheart.

So when you look back on the "good old days" even with better actors, you really only get to see the best 3 out of 10 films they made each year.

Imagine if Keanu could throw out all but the top 3 films he's made - Devil's Advocate, Bill and Ted & Matrix - then his legacy would be less laugh worthy.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!
