Christopher Ashton Kutcher (born February 7, 1978) is an American actor and model born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. His height is 6' 1.5" (1.87m). Ashton has an older sister, Tausha and fraternal twin, Michael, who is younger by 5 minutes. Michael was born with cardiomyopathy, a deadly disease that eats away at the heart's muscles; he was given about six hours to live, but survived with a transplant. At one time Kutcher had a job sweeping floors at a General Mills plant. He once was so poor, he donated blood for money. He was kicked out of the school play because he was caught drinking beer. He got arrested at 18 years old for breaking into his school, Clear Creek Amana High School, with a friend and stealing money from a vending machine. Because his probation prohibited him from leaving Iowa, Kutcher majored in biochemical engineering at the University of Iowa in 1997 but dropped out to pursue modeling. Kutcher began his career as a model and later moved to television. He was discovered in a bar in Iowa City, Iowa. A month before he was discovered, he had planned to move to Hollywood, but was asked to go back to college by his mother. Kutcher achieved stardom on the Fox television series That '70s Show and has gone on to star in his own MTV hidden camera show Punk'd. Kutcher has starred in the films Dude, Where's My Car? (2000), Just Married (2003), The Butterfly Effect (2004) and Guess Who (2005). He also auditioned for the role of Danny Walker in Pearl Harbor, but lost out to Josh Hartnett. Seems Ashton's career is solid and the darling of Hollywood has every reason to believe his star will shine brightly for a long time. Kutcher has dated a variety of celebrities, including actresses January Jones (from 1998 to 2001), Ashley Scott (from 2001 to 2002), Monet Mazur (2002) and his Just Married co-star, Brittany Murphy, whom he dated from 2002 to 2003. Following his break-up with Murphy in mid-2003, Kutcher began dating actress Demi Moore; the media was fascinated with their age difference. Both would eventually spoof the public's fascination with their age difference during a classy monologue on the March 19, 2005 episode of Saturday Night Live. Kutcher, who served as guest host, brought Moore on stage while Moore was made up to appear like an old woman who constantly babied Kutcher and mentioned that she likes it "up the bum". Moore and Kutcher were married on Saturday, September 24, 2005 in a lavish, private ceremony conducted by a rabbi of the Jewish Kabbalah; the wedding was attended by about 100 close friends and family, including Bruce Willis, Moore's ex-husband. It would seem the age difference didn't matter to either Demi or Ashton. They've been on cloud nine for several years. Tying the knot certainly sends a message to all the fans. He tells the world that she is his soul mate.
Here are some Ashton Kutcher quotes for you to chew on:
-- "In between scenes, we go up and play Nintendo 64. We just all hang out and have a good time." - On his experience with James Van Der Beek and Rachael Leigh Cook on the set of Texas Rangers.
-- "I think he's got [guts] for saying what he said. People get way too worked up about that stuff instead of just enjoying it." - On rapper Eminem and his music.
-- "I didn't even know guys modeled before that. I thought Fabio was the only male model, and I really didn't fit that bill".
-- "I'll probably never be the best actor in Hollywood, but I hope to be the hardest working."
-- "I don't believe that old cliche that good things come to those who wait. I think good things come to those who want something so bad they can't sit still."
--"I'm a guy's guy. I don't comb my hair unless I have to, and I don't use lotions or fancy shampoos."
-- "I say whatever I think and whatever is on my mind, and I just hope that it comes out good. I just try to have a lot of fun." - on being a free spirit.
-- "Modelling is the best because you have to look hot, which comes easy to me, you know. I'm blessed with that."
-- "I thought that it was a fantastic metaphor for life, and pretty enlightening. And I appreciated the opportunity to play a character that's blind to the trauma that takes place in his life. The violence that is in the movie I thought was a fantastic metaphor for how blind we are as a society, and as a people, to the things that actually do happen on a day to day basis, and how we kind of just block them out. And whether it be through our media or whatever, we go 'Oh, it's not happening in my world, so it's not happening.' In the movie there's a great representation of the violence with the kids, and the pedophilia, and these kind of things that the guys could have taken the easy road, and kind of squeamishly cut around, but they weren't afraid of it." talking about The Butterfly Effect (2004).
