After placing first, he dropped out of college and won a trip to New York City to the International Modeling and Talent Association (IMTA) Convention.
After his stay in New York City, Kutcher returned to Cedar Rapids, before relocating to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting.
In the 2004 drama film The Butterfly Effect, Kutcher played a conflicted young man who time travels.
The film received mixed to negative reviews, but was a box office success.
Michael also has cerebral palsy and is a spokesperson for the advocacy organization Reaching for the Stars.
Michael's cardiomyopathy caused Kutcher's home life to become increasingly stressful.
Because of scheduling conflicts with the filming of The Guardian, Kutcher was unable to renew his contract for the eighth and final season of That '70s Show, although he appeared in its first four episodes (credited as a special guest star) and returned for the series finale.
