London: Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher had asked Jennifer Aniston for a date as part of a bet he had made as a teenager, but was turned down.

The 'What Happens in Vegas' star had even sought permission from Aniston's then husband Brad Pitt in a bid to win the bet he made with a friend in high school, reported Contactmusic.

"So I make a bet with my buddy. I'm probably 17 years old. I said to him, 'I bet you USD 1,000 that some day I will go on a date with Jennifer Aniston.' I'm 17 years old and she's like on my screensaver on my computer and he's like. 'You're on...'," said Kutcher.

The 33-year-old actor had a huge crush on the 'Friends' actress and got the chance to ask her out, only to be disappointed. But Kutcher says he is friends with Aniston now.

"Four or five years later I actually meet Jennifer Aniston and she's married to Brad Pitt at the time. And so I went to Brad Pitt and I asked his permission to ask his wife out on a date.

"I said, 'Listen, I made a bet with my buddy, you're a cool guy, you're gonna let this go down, right?' And he looked at me, he's like, 'You go for it.' And I'm like, 'You're the coolest guy I've ever met in my life!' So I asked her and she turned me down. But now we're friends," said Kutcher.
