70s Show changed my life forever That 70s Show was a groovy sitcom that transported us back to a decade of bellbottoms questionable fashion choices and decisions by teenage characters but behind the laugh track and nostalgic Haze some Secrets lurked waiting to be revealed get ready because today we are

Diving into the flip side of Point Place and uncovering the dark truths that cast a shadow on that 7s show from behind the scenes controversies to surprising cast stories these are shocking things that they didn’t want you to know about That 70s Show milakunis lied about her

Age milakunis landed the role of Jackie Burkhart on That 70s Show when she was only 14 years old that’s pretty surprising since most teenagers on television are played by older actors but Mila managed to pull it off even though she kept a big secret from the producers instead of telling them her

True age Mila gave the impression that she was already 18 she didn’t lie straight out but she might have hinted that she’d be turning 18 soon without saying exactly when this worked until it came time for official paperwork then everything had to be out in the open it

Turns out Mila wasn’t just playing a teenager she was actually living through it her co-star Ashton Kutcher who later became her husband even revealed that their character’s first kiss on the show was Mila’s first kiss ever in real life so Not only was she acting perfectly but

She was also bringing a genuine teenage experience to the role it’s definitely unusual for such a young actress to land a major TV role especially without being completely honest about her age but Mila’s talent and determination must have shown through and it all worked out in the end she ended up playing Jackie

Burkhart for eight seasons becoming a beloved character and launching her success uccessful acting career so even though things started with a little secret it’s a story with a happy ending Tommy Chong went to prison in that’ 7s show everyone loved the laid-back hippie dude Leo played by the

Hilarious Tommy Chong Leo ran the photo Hut where the main characters often hung out but after the fourth season something strange happened Leo simply vanished the truth behind his disappearance was wasn’t a dramatic fight with the showrunners or a sudden career change instead Tommy Chong’s real

Life took a surprising turn back in 2003 his company Chong glass Nice Dreams got caught up in some legal trouble it wasn’t anything about smoking pot itself even though it was illegal back then and still is on a federal level you see companies called head shops were selling

Things like glass pipes and bongs everywhere all perfectly legal but Tommy’s company ran into trouble because they weren’t just selling locally they were sending their glasswar across state lines through the internet this wasn’t allowed and Tommy ended up facing charges for selling drug paraphernalia he admitted to what he did and took

Responsibility but that meant paying a $20,000 fine and ending up in jail for 9 months it wasn’t easy but when he finally got out he knew he had to come back to that 7s show the fans missed Leo and the show wouldn’t be the same without him so he rejoined the cast for

Season 7 and stayed on until the very end so the next time you watch That 70s Show and see Leo chilling at the photo Hut remember the real life Adventure that happened behind the scenes it may not have been what he planned but Tommy Chong turned a tough situation into a

Triumphant return proving that even when life throws you curveballs you can always find your way back to the things that matter most the show had a different name before that’ 7s show became a cult classic and launched the careers of stars like toe for grace and milakunis

It went through a bit of an identity crisis you see the show didn’t always have its iconic name the series set between 1976 and 1980 naturally featured popular music from Iconic bands such as the who the Rolling Stones and queen episode titles often Drew inspiration from songs of that era with the series

Theme performed by Cheap Trick interestingly the show initially explored the concept of using hit songs as titles including options like Teenage Wasteland the kids are all right feeling all right and reeling in the Years however due to song writs held by the original artists none of these options

Could be used Fox faced challenges securing rights for the song based titles considering the risks involved and the necessity of an established series series the creators feared that tying a well-known song to a potentially short-lived show could be problematic moreover they believed using such titles might make the series less memorable for

Younger audiences unfamiliar with the music of that particular decade despite the roadblocks production continued without an official title while episodes were filmed in front of a live audience the audience didn’t seem to mind in fact they started calling it the show about the’ 70s and that is how that 7s show

Got its name it was simple memorable and perfectly described The Groovy World it brought to life so next time you hear that iconic Cheap Trick theme song remember that’ 7s show had a totally different name but sometimes the best things come from the simplest beginnings and that’s definitely true for the show

That gave us laughter love and a whole lot of bell bottoms Deborah Joe rup didn’t realize show was set in the 1970s it’s it’s funny how sometimes things can go right over your head even when they are staring you in the face you would think the title the clothes

And the Disco Balls would have been a dead giveaway but believe it or not even one of the stars of That 70s Show didn’t realize it was said in the 1970s when she first got cast Deborah Joe rup the woman who brought the iconic Kitty Foreman to life revealed in a video that

It wasn’t until they started filming the pilot episode that she finally caught on to the whole 70s thing apparently amidst the excitement of Landing the rooll and getting ready for the big day the Retro Vibes just didn’t click now kurtwood ever the quick wit jokingly tried to

Remind her that the title should have been a clue but guess what the show wasn’t even called that 7s show yet at that point it was just another script with a bunch of lines and a dream of making people laugh so when Deborah finally stepped onto the set and saw

Those old fashioned appliances and funky wallpaper it was like a light bulb went off it’s a funny story and it just goes to show that sometimes even the most obvious things can slip past us but hey at least she caught on eventually and the world got to enjoy the hilarious

Adventures of the foreman family for eight glorious Seasons Topher Grace dropped out of college Believe It or Not Eric Foreman from That 70s Show played by The Talented Topher Grace wasn’t always planning on being a television star in fact when he landed the role he was just a wide-eyed freshman at the University

Of Southern California with zero professional acting experience under his belt his only claim to fame school plays that’s right the magic of Hollywood sometimes works in mysterious ways the creators of that ’70s show Bonnie and Terry Turner happened to have a daughter who went to the same high school as

Toofer they saw him on stage in a school play and were immediately impressed by his talent and Charisma that chance encounter opened the door to an incredible opportunity Bonnie and Terry invited Topher to audition for the role of Eric Foreman despite having no professional acting experience Topher

Wowed the casting team with his natural comedic timing and ability to capture the awkwardness and idealism of a 1970s teenager he landed the role and the rest is history but topher’s Journey wasn’t all smooth sailing though Landing the role meant making a big decision college

Or that’ 7s show in the end the Allure of Hollywood proved too strong and Topher made the daring choice to drop out of University of Southern California and pursue his acting dreams that decision paid off Topher became the quintessential Eric Foreman the awkward yet lovable teenage heartthrob of that

’70s show he brought the character to life with his goofy charm relatable struggles and hilarious delivery of those classic Forman one liners for seven amazing Seasons Topher entertained audiences with his portrayal of Eric he watched the character grow from a clueless teenager to a young man navigating the complexities of life love

But his role as Eric Foreman will always hold a special place in the hearts of fans Chuck Norris turned down playing red foran the character red foran was a tough cookie through and through a died in the wool conservative with a fondness for hunting and fishing he embodied a

Certain type of World War II veteran Gruff sometimes grumpy and prone to letting out a frustrated Bel fellow he loved his family especially his daughter Lori but expressing that love often came out sideways through Gruff jokes backhanded compliments and the occasional fishing trip which in Red’s world was practically a declaration of

Affection and as for his son Eric well let’s just say red wasn’t shy about doing out the tough love with plenty of teasing and the occasional well-meaning if not exactly gentle push in the right direction of course kept his emotions mostly Under Wraps saying I love you

Wasn’t exactly his style he was a man’s man or at least that’s what he believed being a man meant but underneath that Gruff exterior there was a heart of gold even if it took a bit of digging to find it speaking of unexpected layers did you know that the actor who brought Red

Foreman to life kurtwood Smith played a very different kind of tough guy Clarence boder the main villain in the classic80s sci-fi film RoboCop interestingly when the creators of that’ 7s show were casting for the role of the contener sitcom dad their first choice was another action movie Legend Chuck

Norris yes the martial artist turned actor himself was offered the chance to play Eric Foreman’s father unfortunately his commitment to his hit crime drama Walker Texas Ranger forced him to decline while it’s hard to imagine anyone else delivering Red’s iconic lines like I’m going to put my foot in

Your ass with quite the same Gruff charm kurtwood Smith ultimately proved to be the perfect choice he brought a unique blend of gruffness humor and unexpected vulnerability to the role making red foran one of the most memorable sitcom dads of all time the reason behind mij pinotti’s disappearance remember mij

Pinciotti Donna’s lovable mom on that’ 7s show Tanya Roberts brought the character to life making us laugh with her quirky Antics and heartwarming bond with her sassy daughter but sadly mid’s time on the show was shorter than we might have liked when her character disappeared after season 3 fans were

To hang up Eric Foreman’s groovy shirt after season 7 of That 70s Show it left the writers facing a tough decision should they recast Eric or write him out altogether initially they leaned towards finding a new actor to fill Eric’s Shoes Josh Meyers brother of the famous talk

Show host Seth Meyers was even brought into audition but after some deliberation the showrunners decided it wouldn’t be the same without Grace’s unique take on the character so they opted for a different approach Eric’s exit was written into the story he received a scholarship to study at a prestigious University abroad giving him

A natural and believable reason to leave the gang behind while viewers might have missed seeing Eric’s trademark awkwardness and hilarious schemes It Felt Like A fitting sendoff for the character as for Josh Meyers his audition wasn’t entirely wasted although he didn’t take over as Eric he was still

Brought on board to play Randy a new friend of the group who brought his own brand of comedic charm to the final season and for fans who couldn’t imagine saying goodbye to Eric forever a glimmer of hope remained toe for Grace actually returned for a guest appearance in the

Held a special place in his heart he admitted that this was the one character he cherished more than any other perhaps it was the connection to his stepdad or the sheer fun of playing such a complex and memorable figure whatever the reason there’s no doubt that Smith portrayal of

Red Foreman was a labor of love one that continues to entertain and Inspire generations of fans toer Grace wanted to be a tennis star as mentioned before Topher Grace’s path to Hollywood wasn’t paved with acting classes and auditions before making us laugh on television Topher dreamed of hitting Aces on the

Attempted to capture the magic of another decade with the aptly named That 80s Show though not technically a spin-off That 80s Show felt like a familiar cousin same show Runners same formula a group of young friends navigating life with laughs and Misadventures on the surface that 80s

Show ticked all the Nostalgia boxes big hair neon lights and a soundtrack pumped full of classic Tunes promised a blast from the past but sadly the show stumbled where it mattered most heart and humor unlike its predecessor which relied on relatable characters and genuine chemistry That 80s Show felt

Hollow the characters lacked the charm and depth that made the that 7s show Gang so endearing the humor leaned heavily on predictable references and tired jokes relying on a Relentless laugh track to mask its mediocrity even even in that 7s Show’s weaker episodes the cast’s chemistry

Could Salvage the humor in that 80s show that warmth was absent leaving the audience feeling detached and unengaged ultimately That 80s Show failed to capture the lightning in a bottle that made its predecessor so successful after just 13 episodes the show was cancelled leaving behind a short-lived experiment in Nostalgia that

Never quite lived up to its potential the decade it tried to relive never truly came alive on screen and the show faded into TV history as a reminder that sometimes even the best formulas Need A Touch of Magic to work so while That 70s Show continues to be a beloved classic

Initial stages of shooting Masterson faced a dilemma as he was Sim simultaneously involved in filming the cult 9s movie The Faculty struggling to juggle commitments he had to make a crucial decision Masterson opted to scale back his involvement in the faculty to ensure he could fully participate in shooting the pilot for

Best friends in fact Kunis admitted in a 2016 interview that early on she thought he was crazy their off- camera relationship wasn’t always smooth sailing they went through their fair share of friendship breakups periods where they simply didn’t get along this might come as a surprise to fans who

Witnessed their undeniable spark on screen but it turns out real life wasn’t as scripted as Hollywood portrayals but as life tends to do things take an unexpected turn after years of separate paths and individual growth their connection evolved into something deeper maybe it was their shared experiences under the

Sitcom Spotlight or perhaps a newfound understanding that blossomed over time whatever the reason Kunis and Kutcher eventually reconnected and as they say the rest is history after tying the knot in 2015 and welcoming two beautiful children they have built a life that’s far from the Teenage antics of Point
