The story of Ashton Kutcher’s affair with 22-year-old Sara Leal has become one of the most frequent topics in tabloids headlines. Now Leal, who initially came forward with the news, has commented how the situation has ruined her life.
“I had no idea what I was getting myself into… It might have seemed like I was asking for it, but I wasn’t,” the ‘victim’ said to reporters.
In October, the young woman revealed that she and “Two and a Half Men” actor Ashton Kutcher, 33, had had unprotected sex at the actor’s Hard Rock hotel suite in San Diego on September 24th, actually, on the same day of Kutcher’s sixth anniversary with Moore.
“He lost his towel and I took my robe off… Then we had sex … He was good,” she said of Ashton Kutcher, 33.
Leal also added that Kutcher had told her he was separated from his wife.
She assures that she didn’t even know about his marriage until a friend of hers brought it up.
“I don’t watch television and I read very few magazines. It never crossed my mind that he was married. But then he said he was separated, which still doesn’t make things okay, but I wasn’t thinking clearly,” Leal said. “He was a good looking guy and it was stupid. When people say to me ‘I can’t believe you did that’ I want to say back that most 22-year-old girls in my position would have done the same thing.”
Now Sara Leal, 22, assures that her life became a living hell after had got into the affair with Kutcher. She has lost her job of an administrative assistant with a company that represented homeowners in filing claims against their insurance companies. And only now, two months later, she is trying to put all the pieces of her life back together.
“I got fired from my job. I am no longer friends with my best friend who was my roommate because it caused so many problems and I had to move out,” Leal tells the reporters. “I wasn’t working for two months, and I only just started working three weeks ago,” Leal said.
“My dad wouldn’t even talk to me, and I got a lot of disturbing phone calls, even from my friends’ parents,” she added.
Leal was embarrassed when her former friends gave some pictures of her partying in Las Vegas to the reporters.
“Those made me look bad and everyone who knows me on a personal basis knows I am not a crazy slut party girl,” the woman said. “I’ve had one boyfriend since I lived in San Diego, and those pictures were one weekend out of my life that painted the worst image of me ever. I was a mess for two weeks straight it was so horrible.”
So, now the situation has changed. Kutcher is going through divorce proceedings with Moore. And it seems like most people don’t even remember the name of the young woman who was responsible for the couple’s split.
”I’ve had one boyfriend since I lived in San Diego, and those pictures were one weekend out of my life that painted the worst image of me ever. I was a mess for two weeks straight it was so horrible.”
Leal says she just wants her life to go back to normal.
She recently started working again as an executive assistant at a real estate development company in San Diego. She also wants to be a yoga instructor.
