Ashton Kutcher did his level best to direct attention away from his impending divorce from Hollywood star Demi Moore, cozying up to Glee star Lea Michele at the Los Angeles premiere of romantic-comedy 'New Year's Eve' on Monday evening (December 5, 2011).
According to Msn's Wonderwall, the pair - who play love interests in the movie - worked it "like there was no tomorrow" on the star-studded red carpet. The actress recently called it quits with boyfriend Theo Stockman, but "gently touched Ashton's carefully stubbled cheek" as the pair posed for photographs. The Two and Half Men star was also caught taking the opportunity "to peer down the front of her sternum-revealing Valentino gown". This coupled with the hand-holding, laughing, and glances towards each other - the couple set social networks alight with rumors and speculation. In fact, Lea actually tweeted a picture of the couple to her 1.3 million followers and personally tweeted Ashton, saying, "it was such an honor working with you. I cannot thank you enough". The actress was still gushing about the premiere on Tuesday, telling followers, "What an incredible night last night. I had the best time:)".
Ashton split from wife Demi Moore last month following months of speculation concerning his alleged infidelity with 22-year-old San Diego party girl Sara Leal. The couple had traded cryptic Twitter messages for weeks, before the actress finally released a statement confirming the end of their marriage.
