AceShowbiz - Demi Moore's daughters still hold a special place in Ashton Kutcher's heart. The former "Two and a Half Men" actor has separated from the "G.I. Jane" actress for more than six years, but he uncovered in a new interview that he made "a really conscious effort to stay in touch" with Rumer Willis, Scout Willis and Tallulah Willis.
Appearing in the Monday, February 3 episode of Marc Maron's "WTF" podcast, the Colt Bennett of "The Ranch" noted that he was part of the family for eight years. "Tallulah was eight or nine, she was the youngest. Rumer was 12 or 13 when we first started dating. When we were getting divorced, Tallulah was graduating high school," he explained.
"I was helping raise teenage girls through their adolescence," the husband of Mila Kunis went on to add. "I loved them and I'm never gonna stop loving them and respecting them and honoring them and rooting for them to be successful in whatever they're pursuing."
Though so, the 41-year-old actor understood that he was not the girls' father and was not trying to replace Bruce Willis. "I was never trying to be their father," he pointed out. "I always had respect for Bruce and I think he's a brilliant human being and a wonderful man. So if they don't want an engagement with me, I'm not gonna force it upon them, but they all do and it's great."
As for his current relationship with Demi, the actor known as Michael Kelso on "That '70s Show" stressed there is "no badness" between the two of them. Nonetheless, he did admit, "We don't hang out. You know. It's all good, we don't hang out."
Ashton and Demi got married in September 2005, before divorcing in November 2013. He has since moved on with his former co-star Mila. The two tied the knot in July 2015. They shared two children together, a 5-year-old daughter, Wyatt, and a 3-year-old son, Dimitri.
