Talking points: from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Ashton Kutcher

Schwarzenegger and Kutcher

Arnold would have to pay

If Maria Shriver decides to divorce Arnold Schwarzenegger after revelations of his fathering a child with a former household employee triggered the couple’s separation, it could prove to be one of the costliest settlements in recent history, trumping even Tiger Woods’ $110 million payout, according to Page Six. Given the former California governor’s estimated worth, Shriver could walk away with more than $200 million, despite a prenup sources believe the couple signed. Neither Shriver nor Schwarzenegger have filed for divorce yet.

Kutcher won’t get comfy

While executives at “Two and a Half Men” are happy to have Ashton Kutcher stepping into Charlie Sheen’s shoes, they apparently don’t expect to keep him long. According to the Wall Street Journal, Kutcher’s contract for the hit sitcom only covers one year, while the show itself was renewed for two more seasons. Kutcher will be earning an estimated $750,000 an episode, according to the newspaper. 

How do you really feel, Zach?

In other “Mad Men” news, Zach Galifianakis is no January Jones fan. It seems they met once, and didn’t quite hit it off: “It was crazy,” the actor tells Shortlist.com. “I was at a party, I’d never met her — and she was like, ‘Come sit down.’ So I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave now.’” More and more, we know where her frosty Betty Draper inspiration comes from.
