The following story contains discussion of sexual assault.

Content Warning
accused of rape
In 2017, Danny Masterson was accused of raping four women in the early 2000s while he was starring as Steven Hyde on “That ‘70s Show.” Masterson denied the allegations, and released a statement saying, “In the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused.”
Mila Kunis' age
Mila Kunis auditioned for “That ‘70s Show” when she was 14, and in order to nab the role of Jackie Burkhart, she pretended to be older, saying, “I told them I was going to be 18. But I didn’t tell them when I was going to be 18!” If she hadn't told that “little white non-truth,” maybe Kunis and Ashton Kutcher wouldn't be married today.
A bad kisser
Joseph Gordon-Levitt appeared in a Season 1 episode of the sitcom as Buddy Morgan, who had a secret crush on Eric Foreman (Topher Grace), and shared a kiss with Eric before being turned down. Gordon-Levitt recalled Grace was “probably one of the worst kissers,” a sentiment echoed by Laura Prepon, who played Eric’s long-time love interest on the show.
Tommy Chong
Tommy Chong appeared regularly on “That ‘70s Show” as Leo, a pothead grown-up who develops a friendship with the gang due to his marijuana connections. Leo disappeared from the series after the fourth season before eventually turning up again near the end of Season 7, because in real life, Chong was sentenced to nine months in jail for selling pot pipes in 2003.
Laurie Foreman
Actress Lisa Robin Kelly portrayed Eric Foreman’s big sister Laurie for the show’s first five seasons, but her appearances lessened after Season 3 and she eventually quit, being replaced by actress Christina Moore in Season 6. Kelly explained to ABC News that she had lost a child, and as a result began struggling with a drinking problem.
