The Cast of 'That 70s Show' Can't Hide These 7 Dark Behind-The-Scenes Secrets From Us Anymore

- Page 1

While the cast of That '70s Show were all smiles in their smoke circles, what was happening behind the scenes left a lingering haze of drama.

During the show's eight-year run, starting in 1998, we got to watch our favorite characters live out their teenage lives in the 70s and compare it to our lives 20 years into the future.

Decades later we are now learning about the dark secrets that the cast attempted to hide, but are slowly emerging. Brace yourself, because this is going to get heavy.

Danny Masterson was accused of rape

In the fall of 2017, Danny Masterson was accused of raping four women in the early 2000s, while he was starring in That '70s Show.

As the Los Angeles Police Department investigated, Netflix announced the release date of Season 4 of The Ranch, which stars Masterson and fellow That '70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher.

After an uproar, the network decided to terminate Masterson's contract on the show. Reportedly "disappointed", the actor said:

"Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit. I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one. In this country, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, in the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused."

Mila Kunis lied about her age to get the job

Landing her first TV gig when she was just 13-years-old, she appeared in guest spots on Days of Our Lives and Baywatch before starting a small recurring role on 7th Heaven. While all these productions were okay with working with minors, producers of That '70s Show were not.

In order to score the role of Jackie Burkhart on the show when she was just 14-years-old, she pretended to be older than she really was.

"I told them I was going to be 18. But I didn't tell them when I was going to be 18!" she said.

As fate would have it, her "first real kiss" took place on camera as she, in character, planted one on her real-life future husband, Ashton Kutcher, who played her character's then-boyfriend, Michael Kelso.

If not for her little white lie, who knows if these two would have ended up together.

Kutcher and Kunis actually hated each other

Even though the couple is now living happily ever after in real life, Kunis and Kutcher were not fond of eachother as co-stars on the show.

"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 s**t.'"

Even though they went through "full friendship breakups" over the years, they always managed to reconcile in the end.
