Ashton Kutcher Honors Mila Kunis & Their Kids in Emotional Speech (VIDEO)

Ashton Kutcher is thanking some very important people in his life while accepting an award in Iowa.

The 39-year-old actor was honored with the Robert D. Ray Pillar of Character Award for demonstrating “good character as a role model” on Saturday (April 8) in his native home state of Iowa for his work with local school and help co-founding the Native Fund – which helps Iowans affected by disasters.

While he took the stage to accept his award, Ashton joked about being the first person to receive the honor even though he got “”pulled over by a state trooper while tripping on mushrooms” back in his youth.

Ashton then went on to say that the impact of character comes from learning from your mistakes.

“Because life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you. Every. Single. Time,” Ashton said. “And as long as you have love and kindness and optimism and a pursuit of something greater in your heart, you’re the lucky one. So this award is for you. It is for my family, it’s for all four of my parents, it’s for my wife, who kicks my ass on character every day.”

Ashton then thanked his wife Mila Kunis for teaching him lessons on character every single day as they raise their two kids – Wyatt, 2, and Dimitri, 4 months.

“I mean, I’m telling you, this morning, I woke up and she (Mila) kicked my ass on character,” Aston said. “I thought I was awesome because I got up early and helped with the kids before she woke up and I let her sleep a little bit and then she’s like, ‘Well, now you’re gonna act tired? I do it every day.’ But it was a character moment, right? Because she’s right!”
