American actor Aston Kutcher has denied criticising actor-turned-rapper Joaquin Phoenix for his bizarre appearance at a talk show, insisting that his comments have been taken out of context.
The My Boss's Daughter star wrote about Phoenix's bizarre appearance on the David Letterman TV show, when the bearded star refused to co-operate with the talk show host - calling his behaviour "a little strange", and asking if he was acting.
Although the 31-year-old star insists he doesn't mind his Twitter musings being reported, he urges the media to get the story correct.
"For the most part, the mainstream media has gotten it right and interpreted my Twitters with accuracy. Today, however, some of the coverage surrounding my Twitters about Joaquin Phoenix is blatantly inaccurate and taken completely out of context,” the Daily Star quoted Kutcher as writing on his MySpace blog.
"The value of this utility is that it''s a conversation. And unfortunately the tabloid media is only reporting on one side of the conversation as they are not privy to the reply''s (sic) that are being fed directly to me by the twitter community.
"I don't plan on stopping my open communication on Twitter. However, I am asking for consideration in understanding that my Twitter feed does not exist as a news source for tabloid media - and if tabloid reporters pull content, I would like for my Twitters to be pulled directly and reported accurately.
"Props to Joaquin Phoenix for his incredible artistry and brilliance," he added.
