For wife Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher with moustache was ‘like a different guy’
Los Angeles, Aug. 14 (IANS): In what seems like Hollywood version of ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’, actress Mila Kunis was surprised by her husband Ashton Kutcher’s moustache which he grew for his character in the latest movie ‘Vengeance’.
The actress, though, was very accepting of the transformation, reports People magazine.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live with guest host David Alan Grier, the What Happens in Vegas star opened up about his facial hair transformation for his latest movie Vengeance.
According to People, in the movie, Kutcher’s character, rural Texas music producer Quentin Sellers, has a pencil-thin moustache.
“This character, when I first saw it, I was like, ‘This is interesting.’ He kinda had this Boss Hog vibe to him,” Kutcher recalled, remembering such “bad guys” with thin moustaches in Cannonball Run and Smokey and the Bandit. “I was like, ‘Alright, I think this guy has got, like, this air of sophistication’.”
Talking about Kunis, Kutcher added: “Then my wife had to deal with it and that was all fun.”
People adds that when asked by Grier about how she took his facial hair, Kutcher said Kunis was very accepting.
“We’ve been together for seven years, so when I brought home the moustache she was like, ‘Oh it’s like a different guy!'” Kutcher said.
As for the movie itself, ‘Vengeance’ marks B.J. Novak’s first time as star and director.
Quoted by People, Kutcher said, “BJ had this amazing screenplay that he wrote and he came to me and he was like, ‘Hey, I’m gonna direct this thing, this is going to be my directorial debut and there’s a role I want you to play'”.
After reading the script, Kutcher was impressed and agreed to join the project. He added: “It was one of the best scripts I’ve read in like a decade because I think it captured exactly where America is right now.”
