Ashton Kutcher Biography
Christopher Ashton Kutcher, known simply Ashton Kutcher, was born in February of 1978 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Kutcher has a twin brother named Michael who has cerebral palsy and had a heart transplant when Kutcher was just a child. Kutcher says his home life wasn’t very good as he was always afraid to hear bad news about his brother’s health, so he simply stayed away and stayed busy.
It was in high school that Kutcher developed his passion for acting. Kutcher broke into his high school during his senior year, was arrested, and sentenced to probation and community service. Kutcher later enrolled at the University of Iowa where he intended to be a biochemical engineer and hopefully find a cure for his brother’s illness. Kutcher entered a modeling contest and won a trip to New York City. He dropped out of college going first to New York, then to Los Angeles to pursue his acting career.
Kutcher’s first big role was in Dude, Where’s My Car in 2000. Perhaps most of his fame was due to his high profile romance with actress Demi Moore. Or perhaps it was his portrayal of the dim-witted but perpetually hot Kelso in the television comedy series That 70’s Show, which earned him many fans. Kutcher also starred in another popular television series, Two and a Half Men, which earned him $700,000 per episode. Kutcher became the first person on Twitter to gain one million followers.
Kutcher isn’t one to rely on his acting career, however. He has numerous endorsement deals and has invested his money wisely in such companies as Skype, Path, Foursquare, and Fab.com. Kutcher is also part of a Voice over Internet Protocol business called Ooma. Kutcher is also invested in an Italian restaurant called Dolce as well as a Japanese themed restaurant named Geisha House, which has three different locations.
Kutcher has had some problems in his personal life, but his career is still booming. He produces several reality and game shows through his production company in addition to his acting career. Kutcher’s net worth is currently $140 million.
