Happy birthday Ashton Kutcher! We hope it’s not a sad one.
Ashton Kutcher, 34
We all know about Ashton Kutcher’s Demi Moore divorce drama, but what about when the star was just a rising model trying to make it big in Hollywood? Back in 1997, Kutcher was a biomedical engineering (that’s right, ENGINEERING) major at the University of Iowa when he was discovered by a local talent scout and decided to drop out to pursue a modeling career. And while the move was probably a pretty risky one to take at the time, the prospect of making loads of money by just taking some photos was probably pretty alluring to Kutcher, who said that at one point during his college career he was so poor that he gave blood for money. The Twitter fanatic made another bold move before his acting career blew up. Before he auditioned for Teenage Wasteland, which was later renamed That ‘70s Show, he had auditioned for a new NBC pilot called Wind on Water. Fortunately, Kutcher didn’t believe in the script and was relying on getting the role as Kelso on the hit Fox show, which he did. Other random facts you may not know about the Just Married star is that he has a fraternal twin brother, webbed toes on his left foot, and attended school with Josh Duhamel and Riley Smith.
