Scott Eastwood: Kutcher's infidelity was with my ex
Scott Eastwood dropped a romantic bombshell while on a US talk show last night.
Demi, 52, confirmed she had split from her husband of six years in November 2011, two months after it was alleged he had been unfaithful on their wedding anniversary. Ashton, 37, was said to have slept with Sara Leal while in San Diego, with Scott now announcing he was actually dating Sara at the time.
"If it makes you feel any better, he did sleep with one of my ex-girlfriends – but she was my current girlfriend at the time," he told Watch What Happens Live's Andy Cohen.
The astounded host immediately interjected: "Wait, he slept with your girlfriend while you were together? How did you find out about that?"
"Well, I think it was the catalyst that broke him and Demi up," Scott explained. "It was her and her friend, remember those pictures? My buddy and I dated those girls. Mmm hmm, scandal."
The hunky actor insisted he doesn't harbour any ill will towards Ashton, as he hadn't been very serious about Sara anyway.
Scott was appearing on the talk show alongside Jon Cryer, 49, who appeared in TV show Two and a Half Men with Ashton. The guys got along well on set although things could have gone a very different way, as Jon also has history with Demi.
A viewer rang in to ask Jon if there was any awkwardness between him and Ashton initially, with Jon happy to chat about how things went down.
"You can say dated, sure," he said of his relationship with Demi. "He ended up marrying her and I dated her. Yeah it was a little awkward I have to say. We didn't discuss it and obviously we didn't get technical because that's just not cool. The first time we actually met I didn't know if he knew or not, so I had to kind of skirt the issue. I was like, 'How's your lovely bride?' And I was trying to be cool about it but after the meeting he kind of took me aside and said, 'Nah dude it's cool, she told me a while ago.' So we got over it quick."
