Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher as most of you know him as today was actually born as Christopher Ashton Kutcher on February 7th 1978 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Larry & Diane Kutcher are the proud parents of Ashton and his 5 minutes apart fraternal twin brother Michael. At the fragile age of 13 Ashton's parents Larry & Diane divorced and both were later remarried (to separate spouses). That same year Ashton's brother received a heart transplant (as his brother suffered from Cardiomyopathy ).

At the age of 15, Ashton's mom packed up the whole family along with her husband and moved to Homestead Iowa where he enrolled for schooling at Clear Creek Amana. Prior to his move in 7th grade Ashton made his some what theatrical debut in "The Crying Princess and the Golden Goose".

During his senior year Ashton was offered one of the lead roles in a school production "Annie". However he later ended up losing the part due to a misdemeanor.

After graduating in 1996 Ashton attended the University of Iowa. His decision was strongly influenced by his brothers surgery to study biochemical engineering in hopes of finding a way to help people with Cardiomyopathy. As a side job and means to pay for college Ashton worked at a General Mills factory earning $10 an hour, sweeping the floors.

However fait would have it differently and while at a local bar a modeling agent suggested he enter the Fresh Faces of Iowa modeling contest. The first prize was a trip to New York City to compete in the 1997 International Model and Talent Agency competition (if you're wondering, yes Ashton won). While in New York Ashton signed to the Next Agency. In no time Ashton was traveling across the world and modeling where he could for magazines and top fashion designers such as Calvin Klein, Versace, and Tommy Hilfiger.

In 1998 Ashton went to Hollywood during casting season to try out for TV shows. Ashton was presented with 2 auditions on the same day. 1 for "Wind On Water" and the other was for Fox's "That '70s Show". Ashton was then left with a dilemma as he had landed both shows and was forced to decide between either. "Wind On Water" was shortly canceled, luckily Ashton had made the right decision and chose That '70s Show.

Now in it's 6th Season Ashton has become the bright star in the sky we've always known him to be. Ashton has signed on for the season of 2005-2006 assuring us two more years of the loveable Kelso. He reportedly inked a multi-million dollar contract renewal for That '70s Show which has him commending an estimated 250,000 to $300,000 per episode.

Wanting to conquer all aspects of his craft Ashton has branched out into producing. He's credited with producing 4 of his up coming movies 2 of which he's already co-produced (Butterfly Effect, The and My Boss's Daughter). His most successful production venture is his hidden camera reality TV series Punk'd. Punk'd has Ashton starring and producing his very own show where he plays practical jokes on celebrities. The show has been well receipted by viewers that it's been signed on for 20 more episodes which will stretch into two seasons. The show also helped Ashton earn two 2003 Teen Choice Award surf board (Choice Reality/Variety Host and Choice TV Reality Hunk)

From the television screen to the big screen, Ashton has had small roles in films such as Down to You and Reindeer Games, which both were released in 2000. His first major role was in Dude, Where's My Car alongside American Pie's Seann William Scott. Ashton then made a 180 with his next film project. Breaking out of the mold with a more serious turn alongside James Van Der Beek in 2001's Texas Rangers. A return to comedy wasn't far behind with a role in My Boss's Daughter formerly known as The Guest scheduled to be released later that same year. However the movie was pushed back to late February 2003, and then pushed back again when Ashton and Brittany Murphy (of 8 Mile fame) scored a hit with their romantic comedy Just Married.

Although Ashton has yet to garner that critical acclamation, no one can deny his talent and abilities to make us laugh. Just Married was critically panned but that didn't stop it from opening number 1 stopping the Two Towers from its 3 week reign at the top.

Following his success with Just Married, Ashton will light up the big screen once again. Staring in My Boss's Daughter which he also is credited as one of the movies co-producers. After My Boss's Daughter comes a brand new season of That 70's Show and many new projects such as Elizabethtown with Spider Mans Kirsten Dunst and The Dukes of Hazzard with Paul Walker.
