Kutcher ‘bet a friend $1,000 he could get a date with Jennifer Aniston’

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

NEW YORK - Ashton Kutcher has revealed that he had once bet a friend a thousand dollars that he could get a date with Jennifer Aniston.

The actor, married to Demi Moore, reveals an upcoming episode of the BBC American program ‘The Graham Norton Show’ that he “bet a high school buddy 1,000 dollars that one day I would go on a date with Jennifer Aniston.”

“I was 17 years old and she was on my screensaver. Five years later I actually met her and I asked [Aniston's then-husband] Brad Pitt’s permission to ask his wife out on a date,” the New York Daily News quoted Kutcher as saying in the interview, according to “Access Hollywood.”

“He was so cool and said ‘You go for it’ so I asked her and she turned me down,” he added.

Since that day, things have changed quite a bit - he’s happily married and she’s single. But Kutcher is still hoping she’d say yes.

“Now we’re friends so it might still happen, but now I have to ask Demi’s permission and I just don’t know how to broach that with the wife but I do want to win the bet,” he said.

Kutcher’s appearance on “The Graham Norton Show” is set to air Saturday at 10 p.m. on BBC America. (ANI)
