Ashton Kutcher‘s birthday is today, and the “Two and a Half Men” implored fans to celebrate by making a donation to the DNA Foundation, the charitable organization he founded with troubled ex Demi Moore.
“I’m determined this year to do everything in my power to make the world a better place,” he said in a video on Causes.com. “As you may or may not know, I have a foundation that focuses on ending the sexual exploitation of children and any help that you could give towards that would be amazing — an amazing present for me.”
Kutcher said that he will match every DNA Foundation donation dollar for dollar, adding that all proceeds will go “towards technology tools for fighting child pornography and the sexual exploitation of children.” Check out his video below.
Ashton Kutcher‘s Twitter account was hacked on Sunday night, and the actor went on the warpath, tweeting, “I’m coming for you my friend… #hacker.” When logged into Kutcher’s Twitter account, the alleged hacker posted a now-deleted tweet that seemed to allude to a romantic relationship with friend Lorene Scafaria.
“First official sleepover with my girl @lorenescafaria so maybe breakfast with everyone next time! (@ Lorene’s House),” it read. Unfortunately for the unscrupulous Twitter user, one of the tweets exposed the hacker’s Foursquare account and location:
Demi Moore‘s shrinking figure has been tabloid fodder since her marriage with Ashton Kutcher imploded last year, and the actress opened up about body image and her pin-thin figure in the February 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Surprisingly, she’s embraced her leaner frame, chalking it up to age-related body changes.
“I think I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body, and that includes not just my weight but all of the things that come with your changing body as you age to now experiencing my body as extremely thin — thin in a way that I never imagined somebody would be saying to me, ‘You’re too thin, and you don’t look good,’” she said.
Moore also acknowledged that she has a “love-hate relationship” with her body, explaining, “When I’m at the greatest odds with my body, it’s usually because I feel my body’s betraying me, whether that’s been in the past, struggling with my weight and feeling that I couldn’t eat what I wanted to eat, or that I couldn’t get my body to do what I wanted it to do.”
In the accompanying Harper’s Bazaar editorial, Demi Moore poses with Amanda De Cadenet for photographer Cedric Buchet. See those photos below.
The names and numbers are starting to trickle in on celebrities with New Year’s Eve appearances. Kim Kardashian is the queen of them all so far, earning up to $600,000 for multiple appearances at Tao in Las Vegas. Fergie isn’t doing too shabby, either: she’ll earn $100,000 for a show at 1Oak at the Mirage Hotel and Casino, also in Sin City.
One famous face you won’t be seeing on a New Year’s Eve marquee is Mariah Carey. After reportedly looking for a $500,000 gig in which the star would sing a few songs, Carey’s rep said, “She’s not doing any New Year events. She’ll be in Aspen with her family.”
Other celebs who haven’t yet inked deals for New Year’s Eve appearances include Katy Perry, who was looking for $250,000 without any performances, and Ashton Kutcher, who received several “big offers” but declined them all.
Move over, Ashton Kutcher: Justin Bieber has joined the growing ranks of celebrity tech investors, signing on to support the charitable Facebook game WeTopia. The Sojo Studios game lets users build up parcels of land in a virtual world, a la Farmville. A portion of the points they use to buy or sell goods are exchanged into tangible money, which in turn benefits charitable causes.
Half of the ad profits from WeTopia will go to three charities, according to Starpulse: the Children’s Health Fund, Save the Children and BuildOn. These organizations help youth in developing nations, a key priority for Bieber.
“I’ve been so lucky and blessed and that’s why I believe so much in giving back,” the singer and teen heartthrob explained. “I know my fans will feel the same way when they play WeTopia.”
