Ashton Kutcher claims George W. Bush snubbed him at Super Bowl
President George W. Bush allegedly snubbed “No Strings Attached” actor Ashton Kutcher at last week’s Super Bowl, reports BBC.
Kutcher sat directly behind Bush in a luxury suite at last Sunday’s Super Bowl, but the two had minimal interaction with each other.
“I don’t think he’s very happy with me,” Kutcher said of Bush. “He just was not very nice to me. He just kind of snubbed me a little bit … [He was] kind of more than [ just ignoring me] … [He was], well, just curt. He just said, ‘eh’ … almost like a burp.”
Kutcher said Bush turned around to “scowl” at him, adding that Bush was also the only one in the private booth using a BlackBerry during the game. Kutcher recalled trying to look over the former president’s shoulder to read what he was typing. Kutcher repeatedly said Bush’s expression resembled a “poop face.”
“I think I said some mean things [about Bush] during the election,” Kutcher said. “I feel like he probably doesn’t like me very much.”
Kutcher campaigned for Bush’s rival, Democrat John Kerry in 2004 in what he called an attempt to redeem himself for his election 2000 vote for Bush.
“I voted for him because I thought he was like me,” Kutcher told an Iowa crowd in 2004. “I thought he was a good old boy like me … [He’s] not going to fool me again. I’m here to take responsibility for my mistakes.”
