Ashton Kutcher claims he and Bruce Willis are so close, he once loaned the DIE HARD star his underwear.

The Just Married actor, who is dating Willis' ex-wife Demi Moore, attracted headlines when he and the 50-year-old actor became pals.

But Kutcher insists they're actually closer than most people would imagine.

He says, "I don't think people know how close we are. I think they're like, 'Oh yeah, they're just saying that.' But he's literally, like, worn my underwear.

"He had one of our four-wheelers stuck in the river behind the house in Idaho. It was stuck down in there and he came in. It was the middle of the winter and the girls were with him and he was soaking wet in this ice-cold water.

"So he came in and I, like, gave him my clothes.

"We like hang out all the time. He's great."
