Mario Testino Tests Ashton Kutcher for Authenticity

Kutcher

The new issue of Vman features an undie-clad Ashton Kutcher hooked up to a device meant to test whether or not he's a human or a robot. The spread is shot by Mario Testino, and according to Boy Culture, Kutcher came up with the concept for the shoot:

"I had a vision one day. I was watching one of those Gatorade commercials where they had a guy on a treadmill, and they're testing to see what his physical abilities are. I had this idea: what did the creator—God or whatever—make you for? Maybe we're all doing exactly what we're supposed to be dong, and we're all actually robots."

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers in Intoxicated Arrest at Dublin Airport

Here's another image from Mario Testino's recently-published book of celebrity off-screen moments, Let Me in.

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers was arrested at the Dublin airport over the weekend, charged with public drunkenness and breaching the peace, according to the Associated Press:

"Dublin Airport Police said they called Ireland's national police force, the Garda Siochana, after Rhys Meyers refused repeated requests to calm down. Police charged him with two counts of violating the Public Order Act, then permitted him to pay an undisclosed cash bail on condition he return to Dublin District Court on Dec. 5 for his arraignment. Rhys Meyers — who was admitted to a California alcoholism-treatment clinic in April and checked out the following month — was in Dublin to appear on 'Tubridy Tonight,' a Saturday night national talk show to promote his new film, 'August Rush,' costarring Robin Williams."

A profile on Rhys-Meyers published yesterday in the L.A. Times paints a far cleaner story of the actor: "Earlier this year, he entered rehab for alcohol problems, but he doesn't have much to say on the subject; indeed, quitting drinking sounds like more of a career plan, part of his fitness regimen, than anything else. 'I hear people's fantasies of my wild-child days and I wish they were as wild as that, but the reality was not so wild. In the same way that my success was not overnight. I mean, I'm all for the exaggerated version of everything, but the truth was it was boring and getting in the way of work, so I stopped.'"

Mario Testino Moving in Next to Ricky Martin in NYC

40bond

Photographer Mario Testino has snatched up a 2,600 sq. ft. residence at Ian Schrager's Manhattan residence development 40 Bond Street, says the Wall Street Journal:

"Mr. Testino, who's based in London and is well-known for portraits of celebrities such as Princess Diana and her sons, will have Ricky Martin as a neighbor; the Puerto Rican pop singer has signed a contract to buy a similar, $6.3 million apartment in the loft-style building. Contracts are set to start closing in mid-July. Both the Testino and Martin apartments will have three bedrooms, 3½ baths, 10-foot tilt-and-turn windows and 11-foot ceilings. Pritzker Prize-winning architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron designed the 40 Bond project, a 28-unit apartment and town-home development wrapped in greenish cast-glass designed to evoke cast-iron buildings of New York's SoHo. Amenities include 24-hour hotel-like concierge services."
