Ashton Kutcher says sorry to Harry Styles for acting 'like a jerk' at karaoke party

Ashton Kutcher has apologised to Harry Styles after he 'acted like a jerk' at a party.
The Hollywood star admitted that when he first met the former One Direction member he didn't have a clue who he was.
The 44-year-old and his wife, Mila Kunis, were at a neighbour's party when they bumped into the singer, who had just been performing at the bash.
Impressed by his musical abilities, the couple strolled over to Styles to compliment him on his set.
But rather than saying they were bowled over to see such a superstar belting out some of his hits, they didn't have a Scooby who he was.
They instead told him that they thought he could have a future in the music industry and that he was a cracking karaoke singer. Ouch.
Recalling the excruciating encounter, Kutcher said: "My neighbour was throwing a karaoke party, and she gets up and does this out of this world, bananas, and I’m just like, this is so unfair - and then this other kid gets up and he does this ABBA song.
"I said, 'Man, I gotta tell you something. You're like a karaoke ringer. You're really good, like, really good'.''
Luckily for the That '70s Show star, Harry was an absolute sweetheart and told the couple that he 'appreciated' the support.
Kutcher said that a few moments later, once they'd gone their separate ways, one of his pals broke the news to him that he had just insulted one of the biggest pop stars on the planet.
"I was like, 'Oh my God, now I feel like a jerk,' he's a professional singer, and we're trying to tell him he's a good singer!" he said.
"I just really want to say I'm sorry, Harry Styles."
Kutcher recently opened up about a rare condition that left him unable to speak or walk.
The actor said it came out of nowhere and immediately had a huge impact on his day-to-day life.
He sat down and chatted about being afflicted by a rare form of vasculitis on Paramount+ docuseries The Checkup with Dr. David Agus.
"I woke up one day and was having vision issues [and] could hardly see," he said.
"[It] knocked out my hearing, which threw off my equilibrium, my balance and I couldn't walk. I had vasculitis, that you're very well aware of.
"There's a standard you become accustomed to in your life, like, being able to see clearly. And then suddenly, you can't see."
Vasculitis is an inflammation of the blood vessels, occurring when the immune system attacks healthy blood vessels.
Often the cause is unknown, but it can range from a minor problem that just affects the skin, to a more serious illness that causes problems with organs like the heart or kidneys, according to the NHS.
Kutcher continued: "Then you're like, 'Why are you not f***ing talking louder, 'cause I can't hear you?'
"You want to reclaim the health that you once had."
Fortunately, Kutcher has reclaimed the health that he once had.
