Ashton Kutcher has vowed never to act alongside wife Demi Moore, because their lives are already like a soap opera.
The What Happens In Vegas star is worried the couple wouldn't be able to separate real-life from fiction onscreen.
He says: "I'd do a movie with her if our characters weren't interacting. Our lives are like a soap opera, and I think it would be hard for people to disconnect from work and real life."
Would he take on a role opposite step-daughter Rumer though?

Orlando Bloom has met girlfriend Miranda Kerr's parents.
The Australian-born Victoria's Secret model took the 'Lord of the Rings' actor to lunch with her mother and father at Sydney's Catalina restaurant over the weekend.
An onlooker said: "They all seemed to be at ease with each other and were getting on well. Things seem to be getting serious between Orlando and Miranda."
Miranda, who was dressed down in a grey dress and brown boots, told a fellow diner jet-legged Orlando had been "very reclusive" since arriving in Australia last week.
She said: "I've had to drag him out today!"
After the meal, Orlando gave Miranda's mother a big hug before they went their separate ways.
Miranda recently described Orlando as a "sweetheart" and revealed the pair shared a mutual belief in Buddhism.
She said: "He's a sweetheart and that's all I'm going say. A real sweetheart.
"I practice Japanese Buddhism. At the heart of it all, it's about practicing peace."
In 2005, Orlando took his first steps towards becoming a Buddhist by taking part in an hour-long ceremony to commit himself to the faith.
He joined 60 other fledgling Buddhists at the Soka Gakkai International Buddhist movement's headquarters at Taplow Court Mansion in Maidenhead, Berkshire.
During the ceremony, Orlando was presented with a Gohonzon - a scroll with Chinese and Sanskrit characters on it.

Kim Cattrall has denied she only starred in 'Sex and the City: The Movie' for the money.
The actress - who stars as PR executive Samantha Jones in the hit US TV show and upcoming movie - reportedly turned down the movie because the money wasn't good enough, but Kim says that wasn't the real reason.
She said: "I think, looking back four years ago when we were first discussing a movie, it was a really tough time for me in my personal life. I was going through a divorce and my job of seven years was coming to an end.
"Then my dad was diagnosed with dementia which was the toughest thing of all, and we had to put him in a home. I returned to Canada where my family is - that's really the reason behind it. It wasn't all about the money."
Kim's co-star Sarah Jessica Parker has defended the actress, insisting she was entitled to consider money before agreeing to the movie.
She said: "I heard a number of differing stories, but I never interrogated Kim. At the beginning I thought it was about money. She had mentioned money a bunch of times and nobody should vilify her for that. I think people made a decision that we had vilified her and I think that was very unfair.
"She's talked publicly about the money being an issue and I think she has every right to do that. But the best thing that came out of it is that we are doing this film now and I think we get to tell a much better story by waiting a few years. This was the right time."

Comment on this Article
"After dinner and cocktails at Eva Longoria's Beso restaurant, he made a small speech thanking her for being such a great friend.
"Afterwards he pulled her aside and asked if she'd like to be involved with costume consultation on 'Hardy Men'. The idea is for her to have a series of meetings with the costume department. If she agrees, Victoria will be given a name check in the end credits."
Victoria - who is married to soccer star David Beckham - recently insisted she no longer considers herself a singer and wants to concentrate on designing clothes.
She said: "I've been thinking about this for a long time. I'm not in the music industry anymore. I'm in the fashion industry.
"I'm putting together a team of people now so it's my main project."

The 'Together Again' star - who has been dating record producer Jermaine Dupri since 2002 - thinks Alicia is "wonderful" and admires both her beauty and talent.
When asked who she would have a lesbian fling with, Janet replied: "I think I would pick Alicia Keys. I think she's wonderful."
Janet believes people often question the sexual orientation of Alicia and US TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey because they are such "strong" characters.
She explained: "They are strong women. Maybe they want to put something else behind it because of the strength. Like, you can't be a woman and be strong, and there has to be something else to it."
Although Janet is happy to speculate about lesbian flings, she insists she would be devastated if Jermaine revealed he was gay.
She added to US TV network E!: "I'd be upset because I want to be with him! It's so funny because I joke with him, 'It drives me crazy to be a girl sometimes, so in my next life I'm going to come back as a guy, and you're going to be my b***h!' "
The 41-year-old star also revealed she wants gay marriage legalised and is worried she will "jinx" her relationship if she decides to tie the knot again.
Janet said: "I think it's about finding your soulmate. It's finding that person you connect with, but most people don't get it right.
"Look at me. The thing is I don't know if I ever will or won't get married again. I'm very happy where I am. I just think I jinx marriages, but that's not going to stop me from loving."
Janet was married to James DeBarge from 1984 to 1985 and to Rene Elizondo Jr. from 1986 to 1999.

Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham's friendship has become "strained", because of the singer's new Hollywood friends.
After becoming very close when Victoria moved to Los Angeles last year, Katie is now allegedly annoyed the Spice Girl is choosing to spend most of her time with new friends Eva Longoria and Kate Beckinsale.
A source close to the pair told Britain's Star magazine: "Until recently, the Beckhams were bosom buddies with Katie and her husband Tom Cruise. But there is now a clear rift between them, and Victoria has made it clear that Eva and Kate are her new chief allies in Los Angeles.
"Tensions have been brewing ever since Katie took offence to everyone saying that because she's changed her hair, lost weight and started dressing more glamorously, she was morphing into Posh. So she took a step back, and the girls' friendship has cooled off significantly."
Victoria's spokesperson has denied there are problems between the two stars, insisting: "Tom and Katie and David and Victoria were all out for dinner together last Friday (18.04.08)."
The foursome went to Santa Monica restaurant Via Veneto to celebrate Victoria's 34th birthday with Eva, Kate, Gwen Stefani and husband Gavin Rossdale and Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith.

Scottish singer/songwriter KT Tunstall has launched a scathing attack on Victoria Beckham, for enjoying life in the spotlight.
The Suddenly I See star insists she hates being in the public eye, and can't fathom why the former Spice Girl loves so much press attention.
She tells ITV: "I look at someone like Posh Spice and she seems to really enjoy it and relish life in the spotlight, (with a) celebrity husband. I never read about her moaning about it.
"People say, 'Oh, she looks pretty sad today,' and I think, 'No that's just her pouty face.' But she seems to genuinely enjoy that life. I would hate that - that's my idea of total nightmare!"

Madonna has revealed her husband Guy Ritchie lost his sex drive while he was on a cookie diet.
The pop superstar - who pays tribute to her "incredible" love-life with Guy on her forthcoming album 'Hard Candy' - was not happy when the British director's libido took a nose-dive after he substituted breakfast and lunch for low-calorie biscuits.
She said: "My husband went on that cookie diet and it was such a turn-off because he didn't want to have sex. He's not on it anymore, thank god!"
Despite her complaints about the side effects, Madonna admits the 800 calorie-a-day diet - which also counts Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson among its followers - was a success.
The 49-year-old singer added: "He did lose weight but he didn't really need to lose that much weight. I think he did it because all his friends were doing it and he wanted to see if he could do it."
Madonna - who has previously quashed rumours her seven-year marriage to Guy is on the rocks - recently insisted the couple have a very healthy sex life.

Gwyneth Paltrow has launched a scathing attack on Adnan Ghalib and the media for hounding Britney Spears, insisting the paparazzi are responsible for driving the troubled star over the edge.
The Shakespeare In Love star claims she can relate to Spears, whose every move is tabloid fodder, because her own marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has also been the subject of much press speculation of late.
But Paltrow admits Spears' life under the media spotlight, and her on/off relationship with snapper Ghalib, is a lot worse than her own.
She says: "Look at what they've done to Britney. The paparazzi and magazines have blood on their hands. They literally made her go insane.
"She's got classic Stockholm Syndrome - she fell in love with a paparazzo and went insane. The photographers and editors of these magazines have such bad karma. It's pretty dark."

K-Fed's Lawyer: 'Britney Spears Is Making Good Progress'
Kevin Federline’s lawyer says that Britney Spears still has a lot to prove before she has any chance of regaining full custody of her boys.
The comeback-bound singer lost custody and visitation rights to Sean Preston, 2, and 1-year-old Jayden James following her increasingly out-of-control behaviour at the start of the year.
She has been deemed fit enough to see her sons several times a week for hours at a time over the past two months.
However, her ex-husband’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, stresses that, whilst she’s on the right path, it’s too soon to know whether Brit is ready to take on full-time mommy duties.
"Britney's progress over the last two months is good," Kaplan tells OK!. "But it's premature to say that two months shows a pattern of consistency."
"We need to see a steady, consistent trend of behavior for a while. The goal is consistency over time with nothing at all out of the ordinary."
The next court date in the long-running custody battle is set for May 6.

Katherine Heigl "strongly" suggested to her now husband Josh Kelley that he should propose to her.
The '27 Dresses' star was so fed up with dating she told musician Josh she was ready to settle down.
She said: "I didn't propose to Josh - but I suggested strongly that he should propose to me. One day we were sitting in my house, chatting and having a glass of wine, and I said, 'How do you feel about marriage? Where do you feel this relationship is going? Because I don't just want to date anymore.
"I had got to the place in my life when I was ready for a commitment. He was so nervous when he actually did it - I found it really endearing!"
Despite being raised a Mormon, Katherine doesn't know if she will bring her children up in the faith.
She added: "I don't know if I have the discipline my parents did with me. It takes a tremendous amount of sacrifice to actually participate in a religion in the way that my parents did. It takes a commitment to go to church every Sunday and to follow those rules."

It's all been blown out of proportion, he claims...
Rumours that Heath Ledger fathered an illegitimate child have been blown completely out of proportion, claims his uncle Mike.
As Entertainmentwise previously reported, the late actor was allegedly involved in an affair with a woman when he was aged 17 and she was 25, resulting in a daughter who is now aged 11.
The Brokeback Mountain star’s uncle spoke to Us magazine to clear up any misunderstandings. When asked how the rumours began, he explained: My brother Haydn said that anything is possible, and from there, it just went absolutely berserk.
“Haydn was asked a question that wasn't directly related to the Heath issue: 'If someone was this age, could it be possible?' and Haydn said 'Anything is possible,' and that’s it. His statement was absolutely taken out of context. Absolutely. “
He added: “At the end of the day, our thoughts are with the little girl in question, and we’re not prepared to make any more comments at all. Our grieving process is still continuing, and it’s very difficult.”
The mother of the young girl has denied reports Heath is the father.
Ledger - who was found dead from an accidental drugs overdose in January - has a two-year-old daughter, Matilda, with actress Michelle Williams.

Actress Katherine Heigl has hit back at critics who have hailed her as the next Julia Roberts, insisting the comparison is "insulting" to the Pretty Woman star.
Heigl found fame starring in TV medical drama Grey's Anatomy, but has since found Hollywood success in movies like 2007's Knocked Up.
Her film outings have been well-received and critics have been quick to compare her to Roberts, who also starred in a number of romantic comedies throughout her career.
But 29-year-old Heigl insists she is not out to copy anyone else's acting style.
She says, "I can't help but feel that's (the comparison) is a little insulting to Julia Roberts. There's not another woman who I look at and think, 'That's it, that's whose career I want to have.' "I'm just me and trying to do the best I can in every decision in any given moment".
Meanwhile in related news Knocked Up star Katherine Heigl has dismissed reports she is to quit Grey'S Anatomy, insisting her Hollywood career comes second to her role in the hit TV show.
The 29-year-old made her big-screen breakthrough in Judd Apatow's 2007 romantic comedy and has since been hailed by critics as the next Julia Roberts.
