Ashton Kutcher, 32, just can't stop punk'ing the crowd.

The actor and famous prankster opened up about his physical preparations for the 2012 apocalypse predicted by the Mayan calendar. "It will not take much for people to hit the panic button," Kutcher said in the February edition of Men's Fitness. "The amount of convenience that people rely on based on electricity alone. You start taking out electricity and satellites, and people are going to lose their noodle. People don't have maps anymore. People use their iPhones or GPS systems, so if there's no electricity, nobody has maps."

How to combat the inevitable doom and geographical confusion we'll all be facing in a year's time? Fitness, according to the interview. "All of my physical fitness regimen is completely tailored around the end of day. I stay fit for no other reason than to save the people I care about." And when the end arrives, Kutcher is confident that "I'm going to be ready to take myself and my family to a safe place where they don't have to worry."

Before you start thinking that Kutcher's family has a lot more to worry about than the apocalypse, keep in mind that the actor took to Twitter after the interview, where he strongly implied he was just kidding around. "Sometimes u have to do interviews just to amuse yourself," the Tweet said, before it called the article "out of context."

You can catch Kutcher well before the end of days, starring with Natalie Portman in the upcoming No Strings Attached, due in theaters on January 21. —KIMBERLY STEELE
