Leal told US Weekly in a tell-all interview in October 2011 that she had an affair with Kutcher which included a threesome in a hot tub in Las Vegas. Leal told the magazine that Kutcher said that he was separated from Moore.
Moore told Diane Sawyer that she called Kutcher immediately after reading the story and said that he admitted it right away. Moore said, “And I think my response was, ‘Are you f***ing kidding me?’ That was it. And I think I could barely take a breath.” Moore also discussed having a miscarriage at 42 while married to Kutcher as well as ill-fated in vitro fertilization efforts. That, coupled with Kutcher’s infidelity, saw Moore turn to alcohol and prescription painkillers after been sober for the previous 20 years. Moore’ mother, Virginia Guynes, battled alcoholism for most of her life.
After Moore discussed the affair on national television, Kutcher tweeted, “I was about to push the button on a really snarky tweet. Then I saw my son, daughter, and wife and I deleted it. ❤️.” That was followed with a message reading, “Life is good -Larry Kutcher.”

Leal said that Kutcher told her, “I enjoy things like this because I’m an actor 90 percent of the time and it’s fake. It’s nice to have moments that are real.” When describing their more intimate moments, Leal said, “I didn’t think it was out of the ordinary. I wasn’t self-conscious about getting naked.”

Leal was previously linked to Clint Eastwood’s son, Scott Eastwood. Eastwood says that he was dating Leal at the time of her liaison with Ashton Kutcher. Eastwood made the allegation in an appearance on Andy Cohen’s, “Watch What Happens Live,” in April 2015.
At the time, a “source close to Ashton Kutcher” told Hollywood Life that the “That ’70s Show” actor was livid at Eastwood saying, “Ashton is livid that Scott would bring up his affair with Sara Leal. He cannot comprehend why Scott would choose to do that now, other than the fact he’s got a film to sell and needs all the publicity he can get.” During his appearance on Andy Cohen’s show, Eastwood was coincidentally sat beside Kutcher’s “Two and a Half-Men” co-star Jon Cryer. In her 2019 autobiography, Demi Moore said that she took Jon Cryer’s virginity, something that Cryer denies.
