Remember that time Demi Moore and Jon Cryer slept together in the ’80s while shooting the aptly titled film No Small Affair? Neither did anyone else—until the highly juicy book tour for Moore’s new memoir, Inside Out. In addition to accusing her ex-husband Ashton Kutcher of cheating and requesting threesomes; declaring she was “very proud” of her divorce from her other ex-husband, Bruce Willis; and divulging that she previously purchased cocaine from her dentist; Moore writes that Cryer lost his virginity to her: “I played a young nightclub singer, and Jon Cryer played the nineteen-year-old photographer who falls in love with her, in his first movie role,” Moore reportedly writes in the book. “Jon fell for me in real life, too, and lost his virginity to me while we were making that movie.”
At least Moore thought he did. In more proof that books need fact-checkers (cough, Moby and Natalie Portman), Cryer has tactfully come forward to set the record straight about the couple’s bygone sex, clarifying on Twitter that Moore was actually not his first. “While I’m sure she was totally justified making that assumption based on my skill level (and the stunned look on my face at the time),” Cryer wrote, “I had actually lost my virginity in high school.”
Cryer is but one of the Two and a Half Men cast members to be scorched in Moore’s new memoir. The emotional journey of the book tour has also dredged up the alleged dark side of her marriage to Kutcher during the glory days of Punk’d. Moore told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview on Tuesday that she and Kutcher participated in threesomes: “He expressed something that was of a fantasy, and it was in my efforts to want to please and be what I thought he wanted.” But those threesomes, Moore also claims, led to Kutcher later justifying his cheating. “Because we had brought a third party into our relationship, Ashton said, that blurred the lines and, to some extent, justified what he’d done,” Moore writes.
Kutcher isn’t commenting on the book, but he’s also not not commenting. See: this cryptic tweet on Tuesday night, which also happened to be Inside Out’s release date.
Kutcher, who is now married to his former That ’70s Show costar Mila Kunis, with whom he has two children, went on to quote his father, Larry, in saying, ”Life is good.“ Later he tweeted a phone number and invited fans to text him “for truth.” For her part Moore has said she talked to Kutcher before publishing the book, but it might be worth shooting him a quick text to confirm.
