Ashton Kutcher Says His Friends Tell Him When His Movies Suck
Some people want their friends to say what they want to hear while others want their friends to be brutally honest, even if it hurts their feelings!
To me, the friends that will be 100% honest with you are the ones to keep around forever. They know your friendship is important if you aren’t honest with them, then whats the point. Ashton Kutcher feels the same way! He surrounds himself with real friends, the brutally honest kind.
“I know exactly what films I’ve done that suck, and I know the ones that are good . . . I know it because I have friends that don’t hold back. They don’t depend on me for money or employment. They’re just friends. Friends tell the truth.”
Exactly! It’s just like when we ask our friends if we look fat in a certain outfit and they say no. Then you go ask someone else and they say yes. Why couldn’t the first friend be honest! Sometimes honesty hurts, but it’s really what we need to hear. Do you really want to walk around with a muffin top because your bestie said you look great while your co worker said the pants are just a little too tight.
“You have to surround yourself with brutally honest people who will be like, ‘Dude, you suck at this. Stop.’ I know who these people are in my life. Partners, friends, coworkers. You have a movie and you show it to them, and if it sucks you want them to be like, ‘Dude, that kind of blows.’”
Would your friends tell you that your pants are too tight, your hair needs to be colored, or that you simply need to throw that dress away? I hope so! We all need to surround ourselves with real friends. They are the ones who will be there in the good and bad!
