"I was helping raise teenage girls through their adolescence," Kutcher said, explaining that he and Moore began dating when Tallulah was eight or nine years old, and they divorced shortly after Tallulah graduated high school.
"I love them and I'm never going to stop loving them and respecting them and honoring them and rooting for them to be successful in whatever they are pursuing," Kutcher added.
Moore shares her daughters with ex-husband Bruce Willis, and Kutcher stressed that he never tried to take on the role of their father, even when he and Moore were married.
"I think you try [to stay in their lives], but at the same time, I’m not their father, and I was never trying to be their father," he explained. "I always had respect and honored Bruce, and I think he’s a brilliant human being and a wonderful man."
