Kutcher says he stays fit to protect his family in case of a world disaster

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS - Ashton Kutcher says he stays in shape to protect his family in case of a world disaster.

The actor fears an Armageddon-like situation is close at hand and insisted that he is committed to his extreme workouts so that he can save his family, including wife Demi Moore and his three stepdaughters.

“If the sh-t hits the fan, you can get out of the sh-t,” the New York Daily News quoted him as telling Men’s Fitness in its February issue.

“I stay fit for no other reason than to save the people I care about,” he added.

Kutcher said he people nowadays depend too much on electronic gadgets, and once that’s gone it will be difficult for human beings to survive.

“It won’t take very much, I’m telling you. It will not take much for people to hit the panic button. The amount of convenience that people rely on is based on electricity alone. You start taking out electricity and satellites, and people are going to lose their noodle.”

“People are going to go, ‘That land’s not yours, prove that it’s yours’, and the only thing you have to prove it’s yours is on an electronic file. People’s alarm systems at their homes will no longer work. Neither will our heating, our garbage disposals, hot-water heaters that run on gas but depend on electricity,” he added.

“What happens when all our modern conveniences fail? I’m going to be ready to take myself and my family to a safe place where they don’t have to worry,” he said.

And that is why Kutcher partakes in hot Bikram yoga sessions, weekly hikes, Krav Maga (a form of hand-to-hand combat) lessons - and body cleanses.

The actor also cited a situation where he and his family were left without power last Christmas.

“I got my guns out. We made a fire. We went to the grocery store, and the doors were open because they’re all electronic. People were rolling in and out, clearing out all the shelves. I’m telling you, it was like a preview (of the future),” said Kutcher. (ANI)
