Ashton Kutcher

Aug 18 2013

A rare Huck’s Hero salute today to a Hollywood celebrity who turned a silly awards show into something very special...“Two And A Half Men” star Ashton Kutcher picked up a Teen Choice Award last week, and surprised his young fans by using the spotlight to give them some solid advice about life and success. Even the squealing teenage girls fell mostly silent as Ashton told them that “opportunity looks a lot like work.” That he’d worked all sorts of minimum wage jobs, from roofing to sweeping floors, and he never thought he was too good for any job. Each job was a stepping stone to the next opportunity. And he told them that the things the media try to sell them to make them feel sexy are meaningless. That the sexiest thing in the entire world is being smart. A lot of kids who think learning isn’t cool desperately needed to hear that. These are messages that teachers try in vain to tell kids. Will they finally listen if it comes from Ashton Kutcher? Hard to say. But that video has gone viral and is being watched thousands of times on the Internet. So, good job, Ashton.

    it is very good to see KUTCHER using his talents to do something good for a change! sadly most of his work in movies and television paint a different picture. people , young and old alike, are influenced more by what they are told in tv shows and movies than ever in our history. what does this say about our society ?

    On a recent show you said we should pay someone $5B for a cure for cancer. Many forms of cancer were cured in the 1920's by a man named Dr. Hoxley. There is a video out about him available at Same time the AMA was forming and he wanted the cure to be made available to people for free if they could not afford it. However, the AMA would not go along with that. They don't want to cure cancer it is a $50B a year business in the US alone.

    I had my kids watch it on the internet as we do not have Broadcast TV.
