Fans of Ashton Kutcher have missed out on the opportunity to see the hunky actor in his underwear, after failing to help his new movie A LOT LIKE LOVE open at the top of the US box office.

Kutcher recently announced that if his film opened at number one, he'd pose for a Calvin Klein underwear advertisement as part of a bet with a producer pal.

But the romantic comedy only made fourth place with a disappointing revenue of $7.7 million (GBP4 million).

The movie was beaten out by Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn's political thriller The Interpreter, which topped the box office with a haul of $22.8 million (GBP12 million).

Previous chart-topper The Amityville Horror dropped to second place with $14.2 million (GBP7.4 million), followed by SAHARA, which earned $9 million (GBP4.7 million).

Expanding nationwide after two weeks on limited release, Stephen Chow's action comedy Kung Fu Hustle took fifth position with $7.3 million (GBP3.8 million).
