The Glee hottie told New York Magazine about how she thought Ashton was out of her league.
"I didn't mention Ashton's name just because, I gotta say, I kinda felt like he was a little out of my league," she told the magazine. "You know, this guy's like, the hottest guy, and then when they called and said that Ashton was doing it, I was really freaked out. I thought I should have picked someone else and said, 'You have to use this person!' so I wouldn't have been nervous. But I'm so glad, because he challenged me, and it was a really great pairing, I think."
Ashton plays Lea's love interest in their new flick New Year's Eve, which opens in theaters this Friday. This dynamic duo also turned heads with their playfulness on the red carpet earlier this week.
The chemistry between the two was obvious and proof that the casting directors did an excellent job.
In the movie, Lea's character meets Ashton's after being stuck in an elevator together. She talked about filming with the newly single Ashton Kutcher to the Hollywood Reporter:
"I think it was really good in this movie that Ashton and I didn't know each other because we were supposed to be strangers meeting in an elevator," she said. "I think if we were playing two people who have known each other their whole lives we would have definitely worked hard to create a certain rapport with each other, but not knowing each other really helped with this film."
Ashton is going through a divorce from his wife of six years, Demi Moore and Lea is also newly single.
