Ashton Kutcher grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa with a twin brother suffering from cerebral palsy. As a child, he was perpetually stressed and worried over his brother's condition, fearing more bad news on a daily basis. He attended Washington High School for a year before he transferred to Clear Creek Amana High School, and by performing in school plays he became enamored with acting. However, his education path was quite influenced by the plight of his brother: He majored in biochemical engineering at the University of Iowa in 1996, hoping to find a cure for his twin's heart problems. Despite his good intentions, Kutcher was drawn back into show business when a talent scout recruited him at a bar. The young heartthrob won first place in the "Fresh Faces of Iowa" modeling contest, leading him to drop out of college and move to New York City for a career in modeling. Of course, Kutcher went on to star in That 70's Show and is now known for his hosting and producing of several reality shows, his romance with Demi Moore, and the many films in which he has starred.
