Why Ashton Kutcher Hates Valentine's Day

The actor says he doesn't need a holiday to romance Demi Moore

Ashton Kutcher may be married to Demi Moore --one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood -- and he may be playing a super sweet florist in this month's highly anticipated Valentine's Day, but that certainly doesn't change the way he feels about Cupid's big day.

"I hate Valentine's Day," Kutcher tells Parade. "I can't stand it. I think that every day should be a day of romance. I think you should celebrate love 364 days out of the year. Then, on Valentine's Day, you should get to tell whoever you hate that you cannot stand them. There would be one day of hating, and 364 days of love."

So, why is he so jaded? The 31-year-old links the holiday with a childhood disappointment. "I was in third grade and there was this girl who sat in front of me who had the prettiest super long hair. I was absolutely infatuated with her," he remembers. "On February 14th you had to hand out Valentines to everybody in the class. We had these little hearts with messages on them, and I would give the slightly more ambiguous ones, like 'Hugs,' to people that I wasn't interested in, and I gave this girl the heart that said, 'Kiss me!' I was trying to be a little provocative and get her attention. The tragedy was that she didn't get the point and I never got kissed."

Not that Kutcher has those types of problems today. He and Moore married in 2005, and despite their 16-year age difference, this Hollywood pair seems to know the secret to long-lasting love.

"I think one thing sort of defines it which is, it's not how much you love someone when you love them, but it's how much you love them when you hate them," Kutcher says. "It's when you're in that moment where you cannot stand what the person you're with is doing, but you still love them. That's when you need to show it -- not just say it, but show it. You need to take some action. The biggest mistake that most of the women that I know make in relationships is listening to what the guys says. Guys talk the talk, but 90 percent of guys don't walk the walk. When things get tough it's not what you say, it's about what you do."

Kutcher's new movie, Valentine's Day, opens on Feb. 5.
