The young actors on the show developed a strong bond, and were often seen out together in Los Angeles.
In addition to his work on the series, Kutcher began landing film roles. His early film credits include the private school comedy Coming Soon (1999), the romantic comedy Down to You (2000) with Freddie Prinze Jr. and Julia Stiles,
and the crime drama Reindeer Games (2000) with Ben Affleck. For his first leading role, Kutcher didn't stary far from his television image. He played a wacky stoner, Jesse Montgomery III, who, along with friend Chester Greenburg (Seann William Scott), tries to retrace the previous night's events in Dude, Where's My Car? (2000). While it was derided by critics, the comedy was a box-office success, and Kutcher, subsequently, developed a large fan base. That same year, the actor was named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People."
Kutcher's follow-up film, Texas Rangers (2001), however, failed to make much of an impression on audiences or critics. Bouncing back soon after, he appeared in two romantic comedies: My Boss's Daughter and Just Married (both released in 2003). After filming Just Married, Kutcher became involved with his co-star, the late Brittany Murphy, but the relationship lasted only a few months. Shortly thereafter, he began dating actress Demi Moore; the couple's 15-year age difference caused quite a stir.
Also in 2003, Ashton Kutcher launched his career as a producer. He served as a co-producer on the film My Boss's Daughter, and helped create the MTV cable network's hit reality television show Punk'd. Preying on unsuspecting stars, Punk'd played practical jokes on the likes of Justin Timberlake, Hilary Duff and Tyra Banks during its eight seasons on the air.
Two years later, Kutcher headed another reality TV show, Beauty and the Geek, which brought together smart, socially challenged men and beautiful, less intelligent women, who worked together toward the show's grand prize.
Tackling more dramatic fare, in 2004, Kutcher starred in The Butterfly Effect, also serving as an executive producer on the science-fiction film. The movie, which revolved around a young man who can travel back into his own past to change the course of events, did well at the box office, bringing in around $60 million.
In 2005, Kutcher said goodbye to That '70s Show to pursue other opportunities. Returning to the romantic-comedy genre that same year, the actor starred in Guess Who (2005) with Zoe Saldana and comedian Bernie Mac, and then in A Lot Like Love (2005) with Amanda Peet.
On September 24, 2005, Kutcher wed Demi Moore in a small ceremony at their Beverly Hills home. Moore's three daughters from her previous marriage to actor Bruce Willis served as her bridesmaids and walked her down the aisle. While Kutcher was dating Moore, he became very close with her children, so much so that they refer to him as "MOD," or "My Other Dad." Even more remarkable, Kutcher has developed a friendship with Moore's ex-husband, Willis, who was on hand for the nuptials.
