Kutcher is one of the biggest names in Hollywood, but many fans may not know exactly how he got his start. According to TheThings, the handsome actor began by dabbling a bit in modeling. However, he knew that acting was his true calling.

Kutcher got his big break in 1998, starring as Michael Kelso on the popular sitcom That ’70s Show. Redbook reports that he said, “The first five episodes of That ’70s Show, I was convinced I was going to be fired, because I was terrible.”

Fortunately, he was wrong, and it wasn’t long before he had movie roles in films such as Reindeer Games and Down To You. The notoriously goofy Kutcher went on to star in more films, including My Boss’s Daughter and Cheaper by the Dozen, and by the early 2000s, he was a fixture in Hollywood and a household name.

By that time, the actor began filming the prank TV series, Punk’d for MTV, and as the years went by, he was able to prove that he had some major staying power. 

Before anyone knew what was happening, Kutcher became the lead in the popular show Two and a Half Men, replacing Charlie Sheen. Plus, he became a more refined star in his own right.

Kutcher may be a huge star today, but when Dude, Where’s My Car? was filmed, he may have been a bit starstruck about who else was going to appear alongside him.

When recently rewatching scenes from some of his most classic roles, the actor took a look back at the film. He recalled his days before fame, when someone asked him if he had ever thought about being a male model. Kutcher said the only male model he knew was Fabio, and said, “I don’t think I look like Fabio. Like, I don’t even think that’s a real job you can have.”

He was excited when Fabio actually showed up on the set of Dude, Where’s My Car?, and of course, Kutcher told him the story. Fabio’s reply? “No, you’re not like me.” Wow.
