Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Rising to fame as the dimwitted hunk Kelso on "That '70s Show" (Fox, 1998-2006), Kutcher proved that he had both beauty and brains by surprisingly becoming an entertainment mogul. While his films like "Dude, Where's My Car?" (2000) or "What Happens in Vegas" (2008) were typical lowbrow comedy fare, Kutcher had the last laugh, branching out more extensively than any other actor of his generation as producer of such successes as "Punk'd" (MTV, 2003-07) and "Beauty and the Geek" (The WB, 2005-06; The CW, 2007-08). His marriage to A-list actress Demi Moore raised his public profile, and the two settled into what seemed to be one of Hollywood's more stable and fascinating relationships, amidst continued media head-scratching over their age difference and unusually close friendship with Moore's ex-husband, Bruce Willis. Despite the couple's separation in 2011, Kutcher remained a popular celebrity, amassing the most-ever followers on Twitter, though that feat often failed to translate into major box office dollars as evidenced by "Killers" (2010) and "No Strings Attached" (2011). He made major headlines when he took over for Charlie Sheen - who was fired after a very public meltdown - on the popular sitcom,...

Notes

"I don't think my physical attributes are my best attributes. But people do say I have nice eyelashes. I have a double row."---Kutcher in People Magazine, May 12, 2003.

"I saw Kirk Cameron on TV when I was a kid, and I was like, Man, I want to be like Kirk Cameron. I want to be on a TV show. That was my thing. Who wants to be an actor? Who wants to be a movie star? And I raised my hand, and I really believed that's what I could be"---Ashton Kutcher GQ February 2004.

"Yeah, I could be with whoever to get my rocks off," he says. "Or I could be with this person who is giving and caring, who values me as I really am and who believes in me more that I believe in myself. There's a choice: You could f--- around like a man-ho. Or you could be about something real. I'd rather go for that something real. It just happens to be the thing that people don't expect."---Kutcher quoted to W, May 2005.
