The Word: Ashton Kutcher’s having the last laugh

Cryer just compared his paycheck to Kutcher’s.

Here’s a little perspective to kick off your weekend: Ashton Kutcher is not only having sexual relations with Mila Kunis but he’s also pulling in a whopping $24 million a year.

So even though Kutcher is the butt of many jokes, maybe he’s having the last laugh?

According to a new article in Forbes, the actor earned that huge salary courtesy of his starring role on the top-rated sitcom, “Two and a Half Men” (his tech investments also helped).

Following Kutcher were Hugh Laurie and Ray Romano, tied for second place at $18 million thanks to the syndication of “House” and “Everybody Loves Raymond.” Next: Alec Baldwin of “30 Rock” and Mark Harmon of “NCIS” in another tie at $15 million a year, followed by Tim Allen, star of “Last Man Standing,” at $14 million. Sadly, Jon Cryer, who always played second financial fiddle to Charlie Sheen on “Men,” is still losing out to his more handsome coworker and is only bringing in $13 million.

One day the nerds will rise, Cryer, and you will have your due.

Guess who won’t be appearing on Handler’s show?

Chelsea Handler has had all sorts of guests on her talk show, but she has to draw the line somewhere. When asked by “Access Hollywood” if there’s anyone she would never have on “Chelsea Lately,” the host says, “Well, probably Paris Hilton or something. She hasn’t begged [to come on], but I mean, I can’t look at her. She’s like the worst.” Handler also shoots down the idea of ever interviewing Dina or Michael Lohan, the headline-grabbing parents of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan. “No, I can’t talk to them,” Handler says. “That’s just a hot mess.”
