Ashton Kutcher reacted with shock and ignorance to Joe Paterno's firing last week, creating quite an uproar when he accidentally defended a man who helped cover up a child abuse scandal at Penn State.
Many followers couldn't help but wonder: How could Kutcher have been unaware of this controversy?!?
It's simple, an insider tells The New York Post: the actor has been living in a constant "bubble" for weeks now.
"He works 12-hour days, is trying to save his marriage and is involved in the management of close to a dozen Internet companies, so he didn’t really know what he had done until it was too late," this source claims. "He feels terrible.”
About that marriage... is there still hope for Ashton and Demi Moore?“They both want to work things out," the mole added. "They are doing a lot of talking and Kabbalah counseling. Despite all that has happened, when it comes down to it, they both really love each other.”
It's been a "painful time," for Moore, this friend concluded, referring to chatter over her severe weight loss and gaunt figure. But she and Kutcher "need each other" and reportedly aren't ready to file for divorce any time soon.
