Showing him the page from the magazine when he appeared on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday, the host asked Kutcher what it was like to be “one of the most beautiful somethings in PEOPLE magazine.”
“That’s a pre-beard photo,” was Kutcher’s reaction, also noting that “when I start to grow my beard … I get notches off” being judged beautiful.
Modeling his scruff, and brushing the side of his face with his hand, Kutcher, 30, said, “I can’t get hair to grow in this region.” DeGeneres suggested that what he had was a “beard combover.”
As it is, Kutcher declared that he was more interested in making PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive list, something he claimed both he and Patrick Dempsey are lobbying for.
“Once you’re beautiful, you can sort of lean into sexy,” Kutcher philosophized.
As for his wife Demi Moore‘s reaction to all this, Kutcher told DeGeneres, “I’m her Sexiest Man.”
