Hot Stuff – Aston’s Midair Scare
March 17, 2003

The stars of That ‘70s Show, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson and Wilmer Valderrama, and Tom Hanks’ actor son, Colin Hanks, were pretty freaked out after a fun-filled Mardi Gras weekend in New Orleans. About an hour after taking off in a private jet back to Los Angeles, a source says, “it got crazy turbulent and the cabin lost pressure. The oxygen masks came down, but a lot of them weren’t working. It was scary as hell.” Twenty minutes later, while the guys were still terrified, the plane made an emergency landing in El Paso, Texas. They later boarded another private jet, which arrived safely in L.A. A source close to Kutcher says, “He’s shaken up but fine.” Only hours before the potentially fatal flight, the guys were at a Girls Gone Wild Mardi Gras party. A source says Kutcher, 25, was “hanging over the balcony, tossing Girls Gone Wild trucker hats to all these women who flashed him their breasts” from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m.
