Dark Secrets The Cast Of That 70’s Show Tried to Hide

The cast of That ’70s Show might’ve been “all
alright” in their on-screen smoke circles most of the time. But behind the scenes, there was a lingering
haze of drama, some of which came to light in 2017 with disturbing allegations about
star Danny Masterson during his time on the show. That got us wondering what else the cast might
be sweeping under the rug. Of course, not all secrets are created equal. From the serious to the silly, here’s a look
at some of the other dark secrets the cast of That 70s Show tried to hide. The young one Ukrainian transplant actress Mila Kunis started
landing TV gigs at the tender age of 13, appearing in guest stints on shows like Baywatch and
a small recurring role on 7th Heaven. But while those shows might’ve been game for
working with under-aged actors, the producers of That ’70s Show weren’t quite so kid-friendly. She admitted to People that in order to nab
the role of Jackie Burkhart on the show at the age of 14, she pretended to be a good
bit older than she really was. She said, “I told them I was going to be 18. But I didn’t tell them when I was going to
be 18!” As fate would have it, her “first real kiss”
took place in front of the cameras that year. In character, she planted one on her future
husband Ashton Kutcher, who played her character’s then-boyfriend Michael Kelso — and was 23
at the time. If not for that so-called “little white non-truth,”
she might not have ended up making the Jackie-Kelso ship sail onto a romantic island of marriage
and babies together. Of course, there was more to the story than
just that. The unlikely lovers They played an on-again-off-again young couple
on That ’70s Show and got together in real-life several years after the show’s end. But Kunis and Kutcher didn’t care for each
other very much during the years they shared the screen. Kunis told Glamour in 2016, “There’s nothing
we don’t know about each other because we’ve known each other for so long: the ugly, the
bad, the good. We went through a period where I thought he
was crazy. At the height of his career, I was like, ‘Ugh,
I don’t like you. I don’t even know you anymore. You think you’re such hot sh-t.'” She added that even though they went through
“full friendship breakups” over the years of working with and knocking each other, they
always reconciled in the end. What ultimately brought them together was
a mutual decision to become bedroom buddies without any romantic entanglements. Perhaps not coincidentally, both of them had
starred in movies where that exact arrangement failed to work out. In 2011, Kutcher appeared in No Strings Attached
and Kunis appeared in the similarly-styled rom-com Friends with Benefits the same year. “And if we would’ve just paid attention to
how those movies turned out we would know that we can’t go into a relationship this
way.” The jailbird One of the most memorable minor characters
of That ’70s Show was Leo, the pothead who works with Hyde and develops a friendship
with the gang thanks to his marijuana connections. The character was played by Tommy Chong, who
could’ve easily floated between his off-screen persona and on-screen alter ego for how similar
they seemed to fans. But after regular appearances in the show’s
second, third, and fourth seasons, Leo disappeared from the group. His absence was the subject of a season 5
manhunt mission after which only a good-bye note was found. He eventually returned near the end of season
7. In his big comeback episode, Leo explained
his absence in his usual way. “Nah. Just wandering around, trying to find my place
in life.” In reality, though the reason for his time
off the show was that he was actually doing time. In 2003, Chong was sentenced to nine months
in jail for selling pot pipes. Talk about being far out. The troubled one Actress Lisa Robin Kelly portrayed Eric Foreman’s
big sister Laurie for the show’s first five seasons. But her role was significantly lessened after
the third season. She didn’t appear at all in season 4 and only
in a handful of episodes in season 5. Thanks to her off-screen issues, though, she
was completely replaced by actress Christina Moore in season 6, after she decided to leave
the show altogether. She would later explain her departure to ABC
News by saying, “I had lost a baby. As a result of that I lost it. I lost everything and I was abusing alcohol
… With That ’70s Show I was guilty of a drinking problem, and I ran.” She claimed to have recovered from the troubles
that sparked her departure from the show in time to make a celeb comeback. But she subsequently spiraled in the spotlight,
with a DWI in 2010, followed by allegations of domestic abuse in 2012, and, ultimately,
her death from a drug overdose in 2013. Too big for his bell bottoms The hatchet may have been buried over the
time that’s passed since the group left Point Place. But when Topher Grace and Kutcher left the
show, Grace’s departure was a little more cutting than his co-star’s. When the two announced they would not return
for season 8, Kutcher came back for a couple of salutary episodes in the new season, while
Grace only stopped back by the Foreman residence for the finale. Grace has claimed there’s no bad blood between
them and that he’s still close to all of his former co-stars. But he has still been noticeably absent for
major show-related events, like the cast reunion in 2016 and Kunis and Kutcher’s wedding. He said he was working on both occasions,
but he’s also the only major cast member who’s had nothing to do with Netflix’s The Ranch. The show stars Kutcher alongside Danny Masterson
and has featured Wilmer Valderrama with public intentions to welcome Kunis and Laura Prepon
to the guest list soon, too. He was also the only one of major cast members
who was never Punk’d by Kutcher. “Hey, I’m sorry I just got swept away by the
super good burn.” Even though he got together with the gang
in 2013 to sing the theme song, he’s still been the odd man out on a lot of occasions. The devoted wife It may have seemed a little out of left field
that Donna’s parents, the Pinciottis, suddenly got a divorce and Brooke Shields came along
to play her dad’s new love interest in season 6. But there was a very good reason for actress
Tanya Roberts to take her leave of the series. “Ah, yep. It was Midge’s idea.” The former “Bond girl” reportedly left the
program because of the news that her husband, screenwriter Barry Roberts, was terminally
ill. She did end up coming back for a few episodes,
after a three-year hiatus, so there was obviously no bad blood between her and the show’s producers
for her decision to take a leave of absence from the role. The terrible kisser Nowadays, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is something
of a big screen powerhouse with flicks like Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, and Looper
under his belt. But in the late ’90s he was still just a former
child star whose biggest claim to fame was playing an ancient alien on 3rd Rock from
the Sun. Shortly before his breakthrough role in 10
Things I Hate About You, Gordon-Levitt appeared in a season 1 episode of That ’70s Show. He played Eric’s pal Buddy Morgan, who had
a secret crush on him and shared a kiss with him before being turned down. That on-screen kiss is credited as being the
first gay smooch on North American prime time TV, but audiences reportedly hated it. What would’ve been a potential recurring role
was relegated to just one episode appearance. It didn’t hurt Gordon-Levitt’s career much,
of course, but filming the scenes did leave a bad taste in his mouth. He told The Advocate that Grace was “probably
one of the worst kissers [he’s] ever kissed.” “Aw, look at our poor little tough guy. Hurting others to ease his own pain.” “I think someone needs a tickle.” Grace’s long-time love interest on the show,
Laura Prepon, echoed the kiss diss when she said on a radio show that her Orange Is the
New Black co-star Taylor Schilling was the better kisser of the two. “Oh ummm.” Talk about bad lip service. Thanks for watching! Click the Nicki Swift icon to subscribe to

  1. I swear to God, this is the best and the funnier comedy show, when i fist finished all the seasons, i cried, when i finished for second time all the seasons, cry, and in the third time im still damn crying. I just love it. Hanging out, down the street, the same old thiing we did last week, not a thiing tooo do, but taalk to youuu, we all alright, we all alright!!

  2. The character Eric was the anchor for that show, which is why, to this day, have not watched the final season. That said, the actor protraying him, Topher, seems like an incredible douche, IRL.

  3. Kitty- "Well I'm sure that she didn't just abandon Steven. I mean, she's his mother"
    Eric- "Mom, her exact words were, ' I know I'm your mother but I'm abandoning you, Steven'" 😂😂

  4. I mean, do you honestly expect everything to go smoothly offset? Every set has their problems, it's really their personal life. Who cares, they had an amazing show, it's really not our business about their personal lives.

  5. Topher is probably a bad kisser because maybe, he gets uncomfortable kissing people he doesn't love like that.

  6. I knew that Lisa Robin Kelly died from a drug overdose and struggled with drug use throughout the show. I never had any idea what caused it until now, though.
    God, that is so heartbreaking..

  7. none of those are secrets, some of them aren't any of the public's business and at least two of them were JOKES

  8. the show was most definitely at its worst when randy took Eric's place as donnas boyfriend 🙄🙄

  9. Watching the show now as an adult I realize Donna was an absolute bitch from the beginning.

    Not the actress. The character. Though she might be one in real life too.

  10. Whoa… i was not prepared for all this .. i’m on S5 right now .. in 2019 i had no idea any of this was happening

  11. Actually Tommy Chong wasn't the seller, it was his son. Tommy took the heat so his son didn't go to jail.

  12. I had the biggest crush on Mila Kunis in That 70’s Show and I still do today. I know that probably sounds creepy but we’re actually the same age so back when she was 14 so was I.

  13. Mila kunis is so awesome beautiful .. glad she got the part as meg $ for life and was good in ted just freinds

  14. Why is this video literally trying to find bad things about topher, he’s a good guy I really don’t understand why it’s important that he decides not to hang with the cast, and his kissing skills is no one’s business, this is definitely not cool how you guys portrayed topher in this 🙁 leave him be, he’s just trynna live his best life

  15. 6:52 wtf are u making shit up at this point bc that wasnt even a kiss , they touched lips for 5 seconds how would he know weather or not dude was a bad kisser 😂

  16. they can hate on Topher all they want, but there’s no denying he was the best character on That 70’s Show. Every joke that came out of his mouth was fucking funny, especially how nerdy Eric was😂. When Eric left for Africa, the show just depleted, I hardly ever even laughed in the last season.Especially when they added Randy😷. They should’ve just ended the show season 7 but had Eric and Donna get married, season 8 was a disaster.


  18. That's weird that she was 14 and he was 23 cos she was born in 1983 and he was born in 1978. Math was way different in 1998 I guess!

  19. Most of these arent "dark" there is nothing dark about leaving to take care of a sick loved one, or not wanting to hang out with some people

  20. So Sorry Lisa (Laurie) could not get it together. I hate drugs and alcohol. Young people, please RUN AWAY from anybody or anyplace that has these things available. You can then enjoy a fantastic life.

  21. I know there are a lot of career reasons and some personal reasons , but I wish Topher could have been more of a team player. But we don't know really, maybe the rest of the cast had some beef with him which is why he stayed away. I wonder if the rest of the cast resented him for possibly being the lead role in the show?

  22. I can see the hate for Topher. Not doing anything with the cast of the show that made him famous makes him come off like he’s too good for the show. He found little success outside of the show except for his role in the atrocious Spider-Man 3 and is probably bitter about that.
