Has Texting Killed Romance? Ashton Kutcher Touts Letter Writing

Ashton Kutcher is comfortable with his life as a movie actor, famous husband of Demi Moore and social guru.

His early advocacy helped launch Twitter into a social-networking phenomenon. He created a video production company, “Katalyst,” which uses social networks like You Tube and Facebook as an advertising medium for corporate clients. And his latest movie, “No Strings Attached,” uses texting as a central prop.

So it’s notable when Kutcher, in an article he wrote for Harper’s Bazaar magazine, asks, “Has texting killed romance?” His answer: Letter-writing is far from dead. On the contrary, he says, “The power of a hand-written letter is greater than ever.”

The 33-year-old actor says “a letter is personal, deliberate and means more than an e-mail or text ever will.” Kutcher also says a hand-written letter — without the support of spell-check or grammar guides — can be “flawed” and “uncalculated.” Such mistakes by the writer reveal vulnerability, which, he claims, is “the essence of romance.”
