I read this about a year ago and for some reason it crossed my mind to search for and read it again. I’m not a huge fan of Mr. Kutcher per se, but he makes a very valid point. I’m with you on this one, Ashton. I’m with you.
Ashton Kutcher asks, in an Internet era, are we losing our ability to really communicate?
I was shooting a scene in my new film, No Strings Attached, in which I say to Natalie Portman, “If you miss me … you can’t text, you can’t e-mail, you can’t post it on my [Facebook] wall. If you really miss me, you come and see me.” I began to think of all of the billions of intimate exchanges sent daily via fingers and screens, bouncing between satellites and servers. With all this texting, e-mailing, and social networking, I started wondering, are we all becoming so in touch with one another that we are in danger of losing touch?
