**Bill Cosby is planning a series of town halls this summer to educate young people about sexual assault, according to TMZ.

Cosby’s spokespeople Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson told Good Day Alabama that the 79-year-old comedian hopes to teach kids how to handle themselves when they’re out and about and prevent themselves from being accused of assault.

Wyatt said: “This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today, and they need to know what they’re facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things that they shouldn’t be doing.”

“One studio said no to it,” Silverstone recalls in an interview with Variety. “Those people now kick themselves that they were not part of that film. They were like, ‘We don’t think anybody is going to care. It’s not going to sell tickets.’”

Despite the near miss, Silverstone says the movie “changed my life” and she is now incredibly proud of her involvement.

**Ashton Kutcher vividly remembers both of his first kisses with wife Mila Kunis.

In a new interview, Ashton said, “I did her chemistry homework for her. I think I was her first kiss on the show. We have our first kiss like memorialized on the TV show.”

“It was really weird. I was like, ‘Isn’t this illegal?’ It was really awkward,” he said and exclaimed, “She was 14! She was like my little sister.”
