January Jones dated Ashton Kutcher many years ago, and admits that he told her she’d be a horrible actress.
I’m pretty sure that Jones would have kept going in her career even if Kutcher hadn’t told her she’d be bad at it. But for a guy who’s supposed to have a good eye for things (because he endorses some camera thing and supports new shows that fail i.e. Miss Guided & The Beautiful Life) he certainly didn’t see a star in his grasp.
Jones credits him for helping her career. “He only has nice things to say now — if anything, I should thank him,” Jones told the magazine. “Because the minute you tell me I can’t do something, that’s when I’m most motivated.”
