Ashton Kutcher

Biography

Ashton Kutcher (born Christopher Ashton Kutcher 7.2.1978)
Ashton Kutcher is an American actor and TV personality.

Childhood: Ashton Kutcher was born in Cedar rapids, Iowa. His father, Larry, was a factory worker and his mother Diane was employed by Proctor & Gamble. Ashton has a sister Tausha and a twin brother who suffers with cerebral palsy.

Kutcher studied at Washington High School, before his family moved to Homestead Iowa, where he attended Clear Creek Amana High School. It was here that his love of acting began, when he appeared in school plays.

Ashton Kutcher had something of a troubled childhood and an attempt to commit suicide by jumping from a hospital balcony when he was 13 and was thwarted by his father. His parents divorced when he was 16 and in his senior year at high school, he was arrested after breaking into his school at midnight to steal money.

Motivated by a desire to find a cure for his twin brother's heart condition, Ashton Kutcher enrolled at the University of Iowa to study biochemical engineering. After being approached by a scout he entered the 'Fresh Faces of Iowa' modelling contest and won a trip to New York to attend the International Modelling and Talent Association Convention. He dropped out of university and eventually relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a modelling career.

Career: After achieving some success as a model, Ashton Kutcher was cast as Michael Kelso in the TV series That '70s Show, which ran from 1998 to 2006. Other actors to have starred in the show include Mila Kunis and Tommy Chong.

After losing out to Josh Hartnett for a role in Pearl Harbor in 2001, Kutcher found his niche in comedy films. One of the best known of these is Dude Where's My Car, which was release in 2000 and also starred Seann William Scott. In 2003, he starred in Just Married, with Brittany Murphy and Guess Who in 2005, with the late comedian Bernie Mac.

Kutcher also had a brief role in the 2003 family film Cheaper By The Dozen - a family film, featuring Steve Martin and Hilary Duff. The following year, he took an unusually dramatic role in The Butterfly Effect. The film, which also starred Amy Smart, was a box office success, despite mixed reviews.

Ashton Kutcher also began a successful TV career when he began presenting the MTV prank show Punk'd in 2003. The series involved hidden-camera style tricks, played on various celebrities. Among the many victims of the show are Jessica Alba, Tyra Banks, Jason Bateman, Jack Osbourne, Lindsay Lohan and Missy Elliot. Kutcher is also an executive producer of a number of reality TV shows, including Beauty and the Geek, Adventures in Hollyhood - featuring the rap group Three 6 Mafia - and The Real Wedding Crashers. He is also a producer on the game show Opportunity Knocks. He runs the production company Katalyst Films with his business partner Jason Goldberg.

In 2006, Ashton Kutcher was filming his role in The Guardian, which prevented him from renewing his contract for the eighth and final season of that '70s Show. He did, however, appear in the first four episodes as well as returning for the season finale.

In the 2010 action comedy, Killers, Kutcher acted as producer as well as playing the role of a hitman, alongside Katherine Heigl and Tom Selleck.

In May 2011, it was announced that Ashton Kutcher would take over as Charlie Sheen's replacement in the sitcom Two and a Half Men.

Personal Life: Kutcher started dating the actress Demi Moore in 2003, which caused a great deal of discussion in the media about their age difference. In 2005, the pair married in a private ceremony at a Kabbalah Centre. Their relationship was notable for the apparent closeness that was retained between the couple and the actor Bruce Willis - the father of Moore's children.

In November 2011, Demi Moore announced her intention to divorce Kutcher, after it was revealed that he had reportedly been unfaithful to her.

Annie Review


A solid cast bodes well for this unnecessary remake of the 1982 movie (based on the 1970s musical), but the filmmakers' decision to turn the catchy songs into bland pop numbers is the real mistake. It leaves the entire film feeling empty, highlighting director Will Gluck's clunky direction, which includes coaxing Cameron Diaz to a squirm-inducingly over-the-top performance. Young children probably won't mind, but as the movie lurches awkwardly from one messy set piece to the next, the lack of a decently arranged musical number makes everything look dull and witless.

In Harlem, 10-year-old Annie (Quvenzhane Wallis) is an orphan living in a foster home with four other girls, run by the greedy Miss Hannigan (Diaz). Smart and quick-witted, Annie longs for a day when she can be reunited with her parents. Then she has a run-in with Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx), a workaholic mobile phone executive who's running for New York mayor. Will's advisor Guy (Bobby Cannavale) suggests that he take Annie in temporarily to boost his poll numbers, and once settled in his spacious penthouse apartment she immediately charms Will's assistant Grace (Rose Byrne) and driver Nash (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). And she begins to work her way into Will's heart as well.

From here, Gluck completely misses the point of the play, trying desperately to crank up a ridiculous scam subplot into some big final-act action mayhem. But this never gains any traction at all because it's clear what has to happen in the story. Indeed, the best thing on screen is the strong chemistry between Foxx and Wallis, who find moments of genuine humour and connection even in the silliest slapstick. And they seem almost reluctant every time they have to dive into yet another insipidly revamped song. Pop star Sia worked on them, but loses all the charm in the attempt to turn each one into a chart-topping clone. Fans of the original music will enjoy the brief riffs of the originals audible here and there, and they'll leave the cinema wanting to revisit the old numbers instead of these Frankenstein versions.
