Teen Choice Awards 2013: Ashton Kutcher gets real about his Ultimate Choice awardAdd to Favorites | Teen Choice 2014
But then he got serious, delivering an impassioned speech about opportunity, sexiness and living your life actually contained some pretty good advice. Here are some excerpts:
On opportunity: "I believe opportunity looks a lot like hard work," he says, recounting jobs as a dishwasher, at a deli counter and sweeping up a factory floor before he broke into modeling and then acting. "... I've never had a job in my life that I was better than. I was always just lucky to have a job. .. I never quit my job till I had my next job. So opportunity looked a lot like work."
On sexiness: "The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. ... Everything else is c***. It's just things people try to sell to you to feel like less, so don't buy it."
And the third thing: "When you grow up, you tend to get told the world is the way it is. ... Life can be a lot broader than that when you realize one simple thing: Everything around us that we call life was made up by people who are no smarter than you. You can build a life that other people can live in. Build your life, don't live it."
