Which of Demi Moore's Famous Exes Felt "Awkward" Meeting Ashton Kutcher?

Was there anything not awkward about Two and a Half Men? Jon Cryer revealed in his new memoir that he briefly dated co-star Ashton Kutcher's now ex-wife Demi Moore way back in the '80s. If you care to remember, Kutcher was brought on to replace Charlie Sheen after the latter had a few too many ultra-public meltdowns and squabbles with showrunner Chuck Lorre. And, that's not to mention all the shenanigans Sheen got Cryer into. Anyhoo, things were already pretty weird chez Men when Kutcher was brought on back in 2011, but what compounded it all was that Kutcher was still married to Moore at the time. (They officially divorced in 2013.)

Cryer, whose Pretty in Pink character Duckie is pretty much the '80s poster child for awkward, quipped on Live! With Kelly and Michael that he and Moore had dated "when [Kutcher] was seven," and that when they first met, Cryer wasn't sure how to act.

"We had a meeting to see how it would go, but I didn't know if she had even told him that we had dated. So for the whole meeting, he didn't say anything, so every time he'd make a joke, I'd be kind of awkwardly like, 'Ha, ha, ha! That's a great joke! That's a great joke, Ashton. Because we're old friends, you know? It's not like I dated your wife!'" Cryer added, "It was a very awkward meeting, but at the very end of it, he said, 'She told me. It's cool. Don't worry about it.'"

It seems entirely appropriate that Cryer's memoir is called So That Happened. Because, indeed, that happened. (E! Online)
