Music and entertainment moguls Jay Z and Beyonce have no need to watch the throne as they top Forbes‘ list of the highest-earning celebrity couples for the second year in a row. The power duo earned an estimated $95 million between the two of them from June 2012 and June 2013. With one album, two world tours, and a plethora of other business including a sports agency, fragrance collection, and clothing line, the couple certainly have kept busy this year to earn almost $100 million. The list, which bases its estimates from talks with managers, producers, and other industry insiders, combines the earnings of each celeb in the couple as determined in Forbes‘ Celebrity 100 list.

Tag: Ashton Kutcher (1-10 of 17)
After 35 years of hair-flipping, punking, and furious tweeting, Ashton Kutcher has decided to pass his accumulated wisdom on to the next generation.
His big speech came at last night’s Teen Choice Awards, which honored That ’70s Show‘s ex-star with something called the Ultimate Choice prize — a badge Kutcher characterizes as “the old guy award.” (Past recipients Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Taylor Swift might beg to differ — but 35 is like 350 in Hollywood years, so.)
Maybe going into what could be Two and a Half Men‘s final season is making him feel introspective; maybe he’s still channeling Steve Jobs.
Whatever the reason, Kutcher took this opportunity first to come clean about something that’s been making him “feel like a fraud” for the past 16 years — “Ashton is my middle name. My first name’s Chris.” GASP!! — and then to share three important things he learned back when he was still known as Chris.
“The first thing is about opportunity,” Kutcher began. The second thing is about being sexy.” [Pause for squeals] “And the third thing is about living life.”
The official Teen Choice surfboards have all been handed out, but after absorbing Sunday’s two-hour awards ceremony on Fox, I felt there were simply not enough awards! This year’s bonus prizes are…
A wetsuited Rebel Wilson thought it was funny there’s a group called One Direction, because “That’s also the name I gave to my asshole.” Lovely!

Watch out, Ashton Kutcher and Aaron Sorkin — the Steve Jobs biopic field is even more crowded than you thought.
Funny or Die revealed yesterday that it, too, has crafted a close-to-full-length film about Apple’s visionary, starring Justin Long. The actor is an appropriate lead for two reasons. First of all, he played the Mac in the computer company’s classic “I’m a Mac/I’m a PC” commercials. Secondly, the film’s run time is somewhere between 60 and 75 minutes, making it by far Funny or Die’s most lengthy project to date. You know… its Longest.
Just don’t expect something as scrupulously crafted as either Kutcher’s Jobs or Sorkin’s yet-unnamed Jobs movie. READ FULL STORY
Say this for Ashton Kutcher: he’s not as dim as the characters he plays.
The former model who has made a career out of playing lovable dummies (with a penchant for taking their clothes off) knows that some of his movies haven’t exactly been the greatest. In an Esquire profile, Kutcher told the magazine, “I know exactly what films I’ve done that f—ing suck donkey. And I know the ones that are good, that people like. And I know it not because of the box office, because the box office is not going to tell you the truth. I know it because I have friends that don’t hold back. They don’t depend on me for money or employment. They’re just friends. Friends tell the truth.”
While he doesn’t call out any movies specifically, the writer of the profile says the only good movie Kutcher has ever made – sorry, fans of No Strings Attached — is Dude, Where’s My Car? But while his track record may not be great, Kutcher does seem excited about his upcoming film project, the Steve Jobs biopic jOBS that is being released April 19 after premiering at Sundance last month. “I think it turned out really well,” he told the magazine.

Simon Cowell may be a cad, but he’s not a criminal.
On Sunday, Beverly Hills police received a call about a disturbance at Cowell’s home, EW confirmed. The caller, who used a number from outside the city, gave the department Cowell’s Beverly Hills address and claimed that someone had been tied up with duct tape and needed assistance. Officers contacted the X-Factor creator and confirmed that the report was fake.
Cowell isn’t the first celebrity to fall prey to such a hoax. Since August, Ashton Kutcher, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and the Kardashians have all been targeted by prank police calls. The practice, called “swatting,” involves false reports of emergencies in order to elicit SWAT responses and other police action. There are an estimated 400 occurrences every year, enough to prompt congressional action in June. At the federal level, the crime carries a prison sentence of 5-10 years.

Miley Cyrus made a seductive guest appearance on tonight’s episode of Two and a Half Men. While the story line centered around her character’s young age, the episode ultimately showcased how far the actress has come since her Disney days. Sporting a bikini and beach blonde pixie cut, it was clear that the 19-year-old is more of a fox now than a mouse. READ FULL STORY
Ashton Kutcher owes Charlie Sheen big time. Since replacing Sheen on Two and a Half Men, Kutcher has rocketed to the No. 1 spot on Forbes’ list of highest paid TV actors. The business magazine unveiled the list on Wednesday, following the July announcement of TV’s highest paid actresses.
Between May 2011 and May 2012, Ashton Kutcher earned $24 million, Forbes estimates. Last year, Sheen was in the top spot with $40 million, but this year he didn’t even make the list. Kutcher’s earnings are also boosted by his appearances in Nikon camera commercials and his continued investments in Silicon Valley. He got in early on Skype, Spotify and Airbnb.
Kutcher’s Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer also made Forbes’ top 10, moving down from spot No. 4 to No. 7 but earning $2 million more than he did from May 2010 to May 2011.
Others who made the list for a second consecutive year are Ray Romano, Mark Harmon, Patrick Dempsey and Hugh Laurie. Check out the full list below: READ FULL STORY
Last fall, America’s hearts and minds were captured by a new television character — a dapper, dark-haired gent who looked good without a shirt and went by the name of Schmidt.
That character…was not Walden Schmidt, the dotcom billionaire Ashton Kutcher now plays on Two and a Half Men. Though the former That ’70s Show star did make headlines throughout the 2011-2012 TV season, they generally had more to do with his personal life or endorsements gone wrong than his performance on CBS’ venerable sitcom. That’s not to say Kutcher is necessarily doing a bad job; our own Ken Tucker praised the actor in his review of Men‘s Season 9 premiere, saying that his poker face seemed positively Sheenian. (Charlie Sheen, of course, famously made a different assessment of his replacement.)
So why haven’t critics and audiences been buzzing about CBS’s Schmidt? READ FULL STORY
