Ashton Kutcher revealed that he won’t be encouraging his daughter Wyatt to enter show business, but he would let her follow in his and wife Mila Kunis’ footsteps as actors if that’s what she really wants to do when she grows up.
“When it is a choice that she is making, then I think it is fine,” Kutcher recently told Entertainment Tonight when asked if he will allow his daughter to pursue a career in acting. “[But] as long as it’s not a choice that she is making, it is my job to protect her from all this nonsense.”
Kutcher’s decision to keep Wyatt — who will be turning 2 years old on Oct. 1 — away from the public eye isn’t really a surprise because since welcoming her into the world in 2014, he and Kunis have basically kept her away from the limelight and even from social media.
In an interview with Parade last March, the “Two and a Half Men” actor revealed that he pulled back on sharing personal things on social media on purpose to keep his and his family’s life private. Although he admitted that at one point he thought that sharing his personal life on social media would lessen the number of tabloid stories about him, he ultimately realized that this wouldn’t work.
Now, Kutcher is actively using his social media to share stories that inspire, educate and connect people. In fact, his love for positive journalism led him to co-found A Plus, a technology-based digital media company based in New York City that publishes stories that highlight people’s common humanity, promote personal growth and inspire social change.
Aside from Kutcher, A Plus was also co-founded by Evan Beard and Kendall Dabaghi. The editorial team of the news firm, which was officially launched in January last year, includes former journalists from The New York Times and Huffington Post.
