The couple ran into the then 17-year-old in a place where he wasn't supposed to be. Mary and Jeff Clarke discovered Ashton Kutcher at a bar in Iowa in 1997.
Kutcher says he told the couple that he was 19-years-old after he got them a beer. Mary asked him if he ever thought about becoming a model. Kutcher credits her for jumpstarting his career and sending him to New York where he started modeling and acting.
Ashton grew up in Cedar Rapids Iowa and says he worked on a few farms. He stars with Danny Masterson and Sam Elliott on a new Netflix show called "The Ranch." The show is about a blue-collar family trying to keep their business together.
