Well, well, well… it appears that Mr. Ashton Kutcher isn’t just downright handsome, but also happens to be rolling in the big bucks. Kutcher’s name has recently been all over news headlines, but not because of his new former co- star and current flame (I’m looking at you, Mila Kunis!).
This story hails not from the gossip columns of weekly magazines, but from Forbes’ itself. You know you’ve done something right when your name appears in Forbes’.
In addition to replacing the not-so-winning Charlie Sheen on the hit comedy Two and a Half Men, Kutcher knocked the crown off of last year’s Sheen who topped Forbes’ highest paid TV actors of 2011 earning $40 million dollars. This year, Sheen is nowhere to be found on the list (perhaps, too much tiger blood?) Looks like the much younger and saner replacement, Kutcher, is thoroughly enjoying the view from the top.
The boyfriend of recently dubbed Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive”, Kutcher not only has a role on a critically acclaimed sitcom, but also just wrapped up shooting a film depicting the iconic Steve Jobs. It’s pretty evident at this point that Kutcher is having a superb year and that he just happens to be $24 million buckaroo’s richer. Nice one!
Hugh Laurie, the doctor on House who viewer’s love to hate and hate to love, and 30 Rock funny guy Alec Baldwin are just a few of the other various talented actors to join Kutcher on the Forbes’ list. See the complete breakdown here.
