Ashton Kutcher is getting serious about the end of the world – or at least a very big Californian disaster – after he was spotted stocking up on survival gear in Los Angeles.
The actor brushed off a recent fitness magazine article, in which he talked about training to fend for himself and protect his family in the event of Armageddon, as a joke, but it appears he's no longer laughing about the possibility of a catastrophe in Hollywood following the recent earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan and New Zealand.
According to In Touch magazine, Kutcher recently spent $4,000 at Los Angeles' Surplus Value Center on survival gear for himself and his family.
An insider tells the publication, "He is obsessed with the idea of either an earthquake or massive uprising and the store specialises in anything you might need for basic survival in the event of a natural disaster."
The source claims Kutcher bought emergency blankets, hand-powered radios and flashlights, as well as a lot of emergency water rations and ready-to-eat meals.
