Following news that he had visited his estranged wife Demi Moore at a treatment facility, Ashton Kutcher, 33, stepped out with his alleged new leading lady. First spotted together in Italy over New Year’s Eve, the Two and a Half Men actor and Hollywood writer Lorene Scafaria, 33, were spotted heading to a party in Los Angeles, Calif. on Saturday.
Both done up with face paint, the two boarded a party bus and ended up at a laser tag facility, the London Daily Mail reports. Matching Lorene’s hair, Ashton paired his orange shoes with a belt of the same color and a blue and orange baseball cap.
So who is Lorene Scararia?
The writer is best known for working on Michael Cera and Kat Denning‘s romcom Nick & Nora’s Infinite Playlist, and she’ll also embark on her directorial debut in the movie Seeking A Friend for the End of the World.
Lady Gaga tops DoSomething.org’s list of the Top 20 Celebs Gone Good for the second year in a row, according to the site.
The list, compiled by the volunteer organization, ranks celebrities according to their charitable work and donations.
The “Born This Way” singer held on to her No. 1 spot thanks to her anti-bullying efforts, like her Born This Way Foundation. Gaga is followed by fellow pop star Justin Bieber.
Bieber, who sat at No. 10 on last year’s list, nabs second place in 2011. He launched the Believe Charity Drive, benefiting music education and children’s cancer, and also encouraged fans to participate in Pencils of Promise, which raises money for new schools.
George Clooney comes in third place, followed by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Will and Jada also aren’t the only power couple who give back. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore (despite splitting up in November) and Brangelina also made the list.
(Flying solo, Nick Cannon makes the list without wife Mariah Carey.)

The tweet goes on!
On Thanksgiving, Moore took to the microblogging site — for the first time since the day she announced her split — to share a thoughtful tweet. “Why do we only have one day for giving thanks?” she asked. “Is that why so many people feel unappreciated? Make this 1 of 365 days of Thanksgiving!”
In a poll conducted earlier this month, 60 percent of voters suggested that Moore change her Twitter handle to “JustDemi,” while 30 percent liked “MsMoore,” 7 percent liked “SoOverAshton” and 3 percent recommended “GhostGirl.”
Kutcher, 33, broke his Twitter silence on Thanksgiving as well. “I’m thankful for family, friends, you and time to reach my potential,” the Two and a Half Men star wrote. “What are you thankful for?”
Although Moore was ready to return to the internet post-split, she wasn’t ready to step back into the spotlight just yet. On Saturday, she was noticeably absent at daughter Tallulah Willis’ society debut in Paris. The 17-year-old was introduced at Le ball des Debutantes, and her father Bruce Willis, 56, and sisters Rumer, 23, and Scout, 20, were in attendance.
After six years of matrimony, Demi Moore has announced that she’s ending her marriage to 33-year-old “Two and a Half Men” star Ashton Kutcher.
The news arrives after months of rumors that the couple has been having marital problems, with some reports alleging that Kutcher had been unfaithful.
Moore, 49, says in a statement, “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation.”
Ashton has tweeted, “Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail. Love and Light, AK.”
In the new Us Weekly, the 22-year-old San Diego-based administrative assistant breaks her silence about the fateful early morning of Sept. 24 — Kutcher’s six-year anniversary with wife Demi Moore — when she had sex with the actor, 33, following a wild, all-night party in his suite at San Diego’s Hard Rock Hotel.
“He just came up and kissed me,” the Texas native tells Us of Kutcher’s first bold move in the wee hours; minutes later, Leal, Kutcher and another young woman were completely nude and in a hot tub on the balcony.
“I didn’t think it was out of the ordinary,” Leal admits. “I wasn’t self-conscious about getting naked.”
When Kutcher claimed that he was “separated” from wife Moore, 48, Leal tells Us she believed him.
After retreating to Ashton Kutcher‘s bedroom past 6 a.m., “he lost his towel and I took my robe off,” Leal says. “Then we had sex.”
“He was good,” Leal reveals. “It wasn’t weird or perverted.” It also wasn’t 100 percent safe, either: Leal tells Us that Kutcher did not wear a condom during their one-on-one encounter.
The post-coital talk was a little unexpected, she confesses; the duo talked astrology (they’re both Aquarius), religion, love, even politics. “I told him I was a Lutheran from Texas. He said, ‘Oh my gosh! Are you a Republican?'” Leal says.
Democratic-leaning Kutcher quizzed her on “up-and-coming candidates. I said Rick Perry. He asked if I’d vote for him. I said I didn’t know and he laughed. He laughed at pretty much everything I said.”
But it wasn’t all twenty questions between the lovers, according to Leal. After having sex for a second time — and arguing over Leal’s cell phone — the married Two and a Half Men star was tender.
“He was like, ‘I enjoy things like this because I’m an actor 90 percent of the time and it’s fake. It’s nice to have moments that are real,'” Leal recalls.
How did Ashton Kutcher ring in his sixth wedding anniversary with Demi Moore on Sept. 24?
With a raucous, Demi-free party at the San Diego Hard Rock Hotel — which, a source tells the new Us Weekly, culminated in a sexual encounter in a hot tub with local blonde Sara Leal (pictured here) and her pal in his $2,500-a-night hotel suite. (Moore, 48, was elsewhere in the U.S. promoting her directorial work for the Lifetime short film project 5.)
Prior to that early morning hot tub session, Kutcher began his night drinking vodka tonics and prowling for women with pals Danny and Chris Masterson at Fluxx nightclub — where the pickings weren’t to his liking. “He said none of the girls were ‘hot-tub worthy,'” a Fluxx onlooker tells the new issue.
But Kutcher liked what he saw when he met party girl Leal and her friend past 4 a.m. in his 1,200-square-foot suite back at the Hard Rock. “Ashton told them he was separated from Demi,” one source says.
After some “hard-core” flirting, the Two and a Half Men star was “totally into it,” another source says. “Within five minutes, they were all naked in the hot tub, making out!”
Reps for both Kutcher and Leal didn’t respond to repeated requests for comment.
Moore, meanwhile, is “struggling. She’s been alone a lot lately,” another pal says.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore‘s six-year union may be coming to an end.
Amid new tabloid reports of infidelity on Kutcher’s behalf, the spouses have taken a break from their normally lovey-dovey tweets — a strong indicator that their relationship is on the rocks.
Moore shared a quote from Greek philosopher Epictetus on September 23, writing, “When we are offended at any man’s fault, turn to yourself and study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger.”
Three days later, Moore posted a forlorn picture of herself with the caption: “I see through you.”
Earlier in the month, Moore told her Twitter followers that she was “trying to find the light I lost.” On September 9, she added: “Remember…you’ve got your own back.”
Adding to speculation that Kutcher and Moore have separated? The pair spent their sixth wedding anniversary — September 24 — apart.
While Kutcher, 33, whooped it up with his former That ’70s Show costar Danny Masterson in San Diego, his wife, 48, was busy promoting the short film she directed for Lifetime’s upcoming anthology, Five.
The actors’ reps have yet to comment.
The numbers are in: Comedy Central’s Roast of Charlie Sheen was watched by 6.4 million total viewers, Comedy Central reports.
The ratings also make the Sheen joke fest the most watched and highest rated roast ever for Comedy Central.
Meanwhile on CBS, Ashton Kutcher‘s first day on the job at “Two and a Half Men” didn’t do poorly, either. CBS reports that nearly 28 million viewers (27.76, to be exact) tuned in to see how Sheen’s character was killed off the show and to watch Kutcher take over.
It was not only a series high for “Men,” but it also made the half-hour sitcom’s premiere the best among scripted shows since “Desperate Housewives” in 2005.
Who’s the highest paid actor on TV now that Charlie Sheen isn’t raking in a modest $1.2 mil per episode?
Here’s a hint: He’s not actually on TV… yet.
Ashton Kutcher tops TV Guide’s list of top earners. The actor, who will fill Sheen’s absence on “Two and a Half Men” as Internet billionaire Walden Schmidt, will earn $700,000 per episode.
Quite a bit higher than the $125,000 per episode that TV Guide says most lead actors make – or $150,000 for cable stars.
Moral of the story: If you’re in need of some cash, act opposite Jon Cryer on “Two and a Half Men.”
Ashton Kutcher is not only an actor – and Charlie Sheen’s replacement on “Two and a Half Men” – but he’s also turned into a tech guru and businessman.
Kutcher, 33, covers the September issue of Details, and gives his two cents on social media scandals, Twitter popularity and filling Sheen’s sitcom shoes.
The actor once had the most popular Twitter account in the world, and still enjoys sharing his life with seven million followers. “I think privacy is valuable,” he says. “But at the end of the day, if you’re not doing anything wrong you don’t have anything to hide.”
Because, the way he sees it, there shouldn’t be a difference between one’s online life and one’s real life. “I think technology is just mapping and organizing what already exists. If you’re an asshole offline, you’re probably an asshole online.”
And what of those “leaked photo” scandals that sometimes turn out not to be leaked images at all? (*Cough*, Anthony Weiner, *cough.*)
“I think as more people realize that you’re not invisible just because you’re behind a monitor, the less that kind of thing will happen,” he muses. “You’re in the openness of the Internet. You have to check your moral compass every time you do something. But I also think there’s some blatantly intrusive stuff people are doing. I’m not particularly a fan of Sarah Palin, but perusing all of her e-mails because we can? I think that’s bullsh*t. Not to say that Weiner should have been sending pictures of his d- around.”
But for all that he’s doing with tech, Kutcher is primarily an actor, and is reportedly doing very well on the set of “Two and a Half Men.”
He couldn’t reveal much about his character – “It’s somewhere between an alien and Jesus Christ,” Kutcher tells Details – but he does open up a bit more about his communication with Charlie Sheen.
“I don’t know him. I’ve never met him in my life,” Kutcher admits. “But, you know, he sent me congratulations and wished me well. Via Twitter.”
