20 Celebrities Reveal How They Got Famous
Ashton Kutcher is another actor who was originally scouted for modeling, which might explain why so many actors are ridiculously beautiful. Ashton was riding the struggle bus during his early years at the University of Iowa, where he worked at a General Mills cereal plant and sold plasma to pay his bills. While he was at a bar called The Airliner in Iowa City, Ashton was approached by a model scout to enter the Fresh Faces of Iowa modeling competition. Ashton dropped out of college after winning the competition and relocated to Los Angeles to pursue acting. The Wall Street Journal profiled the married couple who scouted Ashton, Jeff and Mary Clarke, who also discovered Karlie Kloss at a charity fashion show in 2005.
