Ashton Kutcher is already married to a famous cougar, but before he moved to Los Angeles, he had his sights set on another older celebrity -- Jennifer Aniston.
"I bet a high school buddy $1,000 that one day I would go on a date with Jennifer Aniston,â€ Kutcher told The Graham Norton Show. â€œI was 17 years old and she was on my screensaver.â€
Ashton says he actually came close once -- after meeting the famous Friend, the No Strings Attached star says he got permission from Jen's then-husband Brad Pitt to ask her out.
â€œFive years later I actually met her and I asked Brad Pittâ€™s permission to ask his wife out on a date," Kutcher said. "He was so cool and said â€˜You go for itâ€™ so I asked her and she turned me down.â€
Even though Ashton is happily married to Demi Moore, who's 15 years his senior, he still hasn't given up on the dream of winning a date with the famous Friend.
â€œNow weâ€™re friends so it might still happen, but now I have to ask Demiâ€™s permission and I just donâ€™t know how to broach that with the wifeâ€¦ but I do want to win the bet,â€ he said.
Ashton also reveals that it was hard to make the adjustment from the life of a bachelor when he finally did meet his cougar. â€œI was living with a buddy who refused to leave when Demi moved in,â€ he said of their first few months together.
â€œBut it was kind of a good thing,â€ Kutcher revealed. â€œIt would be the middle of the night and there would be visitors and he would do a lot of intercepting for me! I wanted to keep the relationship private so [I] didnâ€™t put the word out and its pretty hard to slow that train down.â€
