Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are guests on "Piers Morgan Tonight" for the hour this evening at 9pmET/PT, and the couple discuss their "Real Men Don't Buy Girls" campaign. One way the campaign hopes to stop sex trafficking is by using social media. "I don't believe that there's a problem in the world that exists that the solutions didn't exist before the problem," Kutcher tells Piers Morgan. "So that's why we're using social media for this campaign. t's to actually go right into the heart of where it's taking place. Seventy-six percent of the transactions for child sex slavery is actually happening online. So if we can motivate people while they are online to do something about that, then we can make a dent."

In the wake of potential 2012 GOP nominee Tim Pawlenty's non-announcement statement "I'm running for President" on "Piers Morgan Tonight" earlier this week, Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert had some fun with the situation. Colbert said what Pawlenty told Piers Morgan was a "warning to other candidates."
"Declaring your candidacy for President is supposed to be special," he said. "You only get to do it once. So you want to wait for that perfect journalist to share it with." And...so on. Check out the full segment here.

"As marriage goes, I think most people set getting married as the goal, as opposed to being married, which is a different thing," Kutcher told Piers Morgan, saying it's important to "[work] on it when it's good."
They also discussed how their "Real Men Don't Buy Girls" campaign helps their marriage. FULL POST
