    Ashton Kutcher thinks celebrities who are "famous for the sake of being famous" set a bad example.

    The 35-year-old actor, who is dating his former 'That 70s Show' co-star Mila Kunis and recently signed his divorce papers with Demi Moore, has suggested reality TV stars and people from "second-generation wealthy families" are responsible for creating an "unhealthy" sense of entitlement among young people.


    The 'Two And A Half Men' star told 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show': "I think it shifts a dynamic in society, and I also think there's an entitlement that's starting to emerge that I think is unhealthy for people and unhealthy for our country. And it's funny -- I talk to some of my friends and they don't want to get a job at Starbucks, or they don't want to get a job at wherever, because they feel like it's below them. And I think the only thing that can be below you is to not have a job! Go work until you can get the job that you want to have."

    Ashton also opened up about his infamous speech at the Teen Choice Awards in August, during which he urged the young audience to "build a life, not live one."

    He said: "I actually think there are some kids in the world that grow up today and think, 'I want to be famous,' instead of 'When I grow up, I want to do something, I want to build something, I want to create something.'

    "I thought it was a valuable moment to actually let them know that all that [fame] is kind of c**p, and that working hard and being thoughtful and generous and smart is a path to a better life. Usually when you go to those shows, it's people propagating the fame machine over and over and over and over again, so I thought it was an opportunity to do something different."
