iPOP at the Sundance Film Festival, Volume 7

iPOP at the Sundance Film Festival, Volume 7

Ashton Kutcher, who executive produced "The Butterfly Effect," directed by Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber, said he argued with the directors about character issues, but that the project had been a learning experience for all and gave the directing duo kudos for their work. "As they learned, we learned..." he said. Kutcher, along with co-star Amy Smart, who, let's say, isn't much of a morning person, did a round of press interviews on the balcony of the Skyy Vodka Lounge, much to the delight of some who gathered below on Main Street to catch a glimpse of Kutcher. At one point he yelled down to the street to ask for a match for his ciggy, which drew applause and some screams, but no fire. Jehane Noujaim's "Control Room" received rousing approval earlier in the week at a press screening. She along with one of the film's subjects hung out at the Sundance Channel party Tuesday evening.

Hollywood star Ashton Kutcher smiles on the balcony of the Skyy Vodka Lounge with co-star Amy Smart. They were in town to promote "The Butterfly Effect," directed by Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber. Kutcher earlier yelled down to those gathered on Main Street to ask if anyone had a match for his cigarette. Some girls shreaked, and others snapped photos and clapped, but no 'fuego' as he called it (someone inside eventually gave him one).
