Demi and Ashton pop in at West Des Moines bar


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Patrons at a West Des Moines bar were surprised when Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore showed up this weekend – and stayed until closing time.

Kutcher, who is a native of the eastern Iowa town of Homestead, was visiting family with his 43-year-old actress-wife and her daughter Scout.

They received a text message from Los Angeles-based professional club disc jockey DJ AM – Adam Goldstein – who was working at the Aura nightclub Sunday evening, the couple told bar patrons.

Moore, whose screen credits include “Ghost” and “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle,” and Kutcher, 28, who starred in TV’s “That ‘70s Show,” split their time between the VIP and DJ booths.

Kutcher tried to arrange for a helicopter to pick them up, said bar manager Mike Caudle.

“I contacted every pilot I know, and I couldn’t get a hold of anyone with a helicopter,” said Caudle. He said his security personnel drove them the 100 miles home.

Moore and Kutcher were married last September. The actress has three daughters from her previous marriage to Bruce Willis.
