Monday gossip roundup: Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are keeping it hot

The couple way back in 2004.

Ashton Kutcher‘s jet-setting relationship with Mila Kunis continues. After hitting up Kutcher’s hometown of Cedar Rapids, Iowa in late December, the pair reportedly spent the first weekend of the New Year living it up in Rio de Janeiro, according to E! News. Kutcher and Kunis were spotted at restaurant Mr. Lam in the company of Brazilian TV host Luciano Huck and other pals. Since the former “That 70s Show” co-stars started dating last year they’ve spent more time on the road than at home in L.A., it appears, with lengthy residences in New York City and Rome.

Justin Bieber‘s tattoo obsession continues, with the 18-year-old Canadian pop star debuting yet another patch of ink via his Instagram account earlier this week. The piece, a profile of a Native American chief, is the logo for the Stratford Cullitons junior ice hockey team. “My grandfather always took me to the Stratford Culliton every Friday night,” Bieber posted along with the photo. “This is for [you], Grampa.” Last week, Bieber also had a session to add embellishments to an existing tattoo of praying hands on his lower leg.

The boys in the Wanted are looking to throw down with One Direction to finally determine which is the better boy band. The only question is how to handle the confrontation. “It’d have to be a pub brawl, wouldn’t it?” the Wanted member Jay McGuiness tells the Daily Star. “And we wouldn’t be doing any of that fancy fighting. It’s not like we know kung fu or anything. We’d just do what boys do.” His bandmate Max George thinks their chart-topping competition may actually be more lovers than fighters, though. “I think they fancy us, really,” George says. “It’s just their way of flirting.”

Though her first child is not even a month old, “Homeland” star Claire Danes is already making it clear she doesn’t plan to be a stay-at-home mom. “I’ve always wanted to have kids, but I’m glad I didn’t until now. When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about it,” Danes tells Elle magazine. “I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn’t suit me. I feel so fortunate in that I’ve had this arrow-straight focus that I wanted to act.” Danes and husband Hugh Dancy welcomed son Cyrus on December 17.

Courteney Cox
and David Arquette definitely win the award for most amicable divorce, as the “Cougar Town” star insists to Ellen DeGeneres that Arquette is still her best friend. “I appreciate David more now than I ever did,” Cox says. “I mean, it’s hard. I don’t recommend divorce in general but you know, he is my best friend and we’ve both grown and changed and I think we both appreciate each other more. I hope he does. I do.” The pair separated in 2011 and filed for divorce in June but remain active parts of each others lives.
