Ashton Kutcher outdid himself with his Mother's Day surprise to his mom, Diane Portwood -- he had her Homestead, Iowa, house rebuilt.

"Everybody has a place in their life that they call home. It sort of has that feeling of home, and no matter where you go in the world or what you see or what you do, when you think of the word 'home,' you're drawn to a specific place in your mind," Kutcher, 37, said in a video for design site Houzz.

Kutcher was 13 when he and stepdad Mark Portwood built the house. Now Kutcher wants to make it more modern for the family's new generation. "There are a lot of reasons to go home and do something special like this, but at the end of the day, it's my way of saying 'Thank you' to my mom," he said.

The fur flies at Kim

Kim Kardashian's signing at a Barnes & Noble in Manhattan for her new selfie book was going smoothly Tuesday, until a group of anti-fur advocates arrived at the bookstore.

"I just want to say you're the most disgusting human being on this planet," one man said in a video shot by one of the protesters. "Shame on you for supporting the fur industry. Shame on you for putting your innocent daughter in fur."

Kardashian maintained a smile and did not even acknowledge the protesters' presence as they hollered and shouted at her.
