Slippery ground. Which crushed them with the force of an avalanche. And I am forced to make a public statement. Where they apologize and take the side of the victims. Mila Kunis AND Ashton Kutcher they were caught in a storm due to their involvement in the case Danny Masterson.
Their former colleague on the cult series It’s That ’70s Showjust sentenced to 30 years in prison for raping two women in the early 2000s. An ugly story, the trial part of which lasted for years before a verdict was reached.
But what do Kunis and Kutcher have to do with this? These two (but they are not the only ones) wrote a letter in favor of Masterson even before the judge handed down the sentence. Asks for leniency. It’s good to talk about him. When the letter became public, the couple was forced to respond.

In a video posted to Kutcher’s Instagram account on Saturday, the couple explained how the letters, published exclusively by the American, came to be. Hollywood Reporter. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are sorry for the pain and trauma caused by letters they wrote to their co-star. It’s That ’70s Show.
“The letters were not written to question the legitimacy of the justice system or the validity of the jury’s verdict,” Kunis says. “We support the victims. We have done this in the past through work and will continue to do so in the future. Our hearts go out to all people who have been victims of sexual assault, sexual assault or rape.”
“These letters were intended to be read by a judge, not to undermine the victims’ testimony or force them to relive the trauma,” Kutcher added. “That was never our goal. And we are sorry that this happened.”
What is written in the letters
Will. However, both spent a lot of effort in favor of Masterson. Kutcher explained that it was the family who contacted them and asked them to write in favor of the actor. And they weren’t the only ones. Because other celebrities also wrote letters, for example, a film producer. Sean Pillerscreenwriter Ranch, Jim Pattersonand actors Giovanni Ribisi AND William Baldwin (his brother-in-law, who married Masterson’s wife’s sister).
But what did Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher write in these letters? The actor identified Masterson, his co-star also in the Netflix sitcom. Ranch, a “model”, with “exceptional character”. Adding: “The fact that I didn’t end up in the typical Hollywood drug-dealing life I attribute directly to Danny. Every time we met someone or interacted with someone who was taking drugs or using drugs, he made it clear to us that he was not worth being friends with.”
Kunis said Masterson was an “exceptional big brother” to her. Not only. “His commitment to avoiding all drugs inspired not only me, but countless others in our circle. Danny’s insistence on promoting a drug-free lifestyle has been a guiding light in my entertainment journey and has helped me prioritize my well-being and focus on making responsible choices.”
