Actor and producer Ashton Kutcher was born on February 7, 1978, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Born Christopher Ashton Kutcher, Ashton entered and ultimately won the Fresh Faces of Iowa modeling contest in 1997, which ignited his life in the spotlight.
Ashton then signed with a modeling agency and moved to New York City, easily landing modeling gigs for prominent designers, including Calvin Klein and Abercrombie & Fitch.
During the spring of 1988, Ashton broke onto the scene with a reoccurring role on the successful sitcom, That '70s Show. Although not the lead of the show, Ashton's dense character was highly received by audiences across the nation. He was soon landing movie roles, including the private school comedy, Coming Soon (1999), the romantic comedy, Down to You (2000), and the crime thriller, Reindeer Games (2000), with Ben Affleck. It became apparent to Ashton when starred opposite Sean William Scott in Dude, Where's My Car (2000), playing a dense stoner with similar character dynamics as Kelso. While critics shot down the movie, it was a box office hit and provided Ashton with a larger fan base. He was later named one of People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in the World.
Fans along with critics were not impressed with his performance in Texas Ranger (2000) but quickly redeemed himself with two romantic comedies, My Boss's Daughter (2003) and Just Married (2003). Following the conclusion of Just Married, Ashton and his co-star Brittany Murphy began dating but later called it off. He later moved on to Demi Moore, which was the center of discussion due to their 15-year age difference. In 2003, Ashton branched outside of acting, co-producing My Boss's Daughter, creating the hit reality prank show Punk'd on MTV, and later Beauty and the Geek.
In 2004, Ashton established his array of acting styles by starring in and producing the dramatic film, The Butterfly Effect, which went on to make over $60 million. During the following year, Ashton parted ways with That '70s Show and continued his success in romantic comedies, including Guess Who (2005) with Zoe Saldana and comedian Bernie Mac and A Lot Like Love (2005) with Amanda Peet.
On September 24, 2005, despite the public's lack of approval, Ashton and Demi Moore married in a small ceremony at their home in Beverly Hills. Demi's three daughters from her previous marriage to actor Bruce Willis, who also attended, served as her bridesmaids. Ashton became very close to her daughters, who refer to him as "MOD," or "My Other Dad, and developed a mutual likeness for Willis.
Ashton continued expanding his reach in the entertainment industry by starring in the action film The Guardian (2006) with Kevin Costner and lending his voice to the animated film Open Season (2006). He went on to star in What Happens in Vegas (2008) with Cameron Diaz, followed by Personal Effects with Michelle Pfeiffer.
