Ashton Kutcher is not interested in spreading alleged misinformation, at least according to his latest Twitter post. Page six got a tweet from the That ’70s show alum this week setting the record straight to his co-star, Tanya Roberts – who played Mitch on the same show.
The 42-year-old actor told a lot about him That ’70s show co-stars that Tanya was alive, even though her publicist said she had passed away. Topher Grace, for example, mourned her death on social media, until Ashton made sure to correct him (or so he thought).
Topher Grace wrote on his behalf that he was sad to learn that she had passed away. Topher explained how she had worked on a James Bond movie in the past and also as Charlie’s Angel. You can read what the actor had to say here:

In addition, Debra Jo Rupp, who played Kitty Forman, wrote a long tribute to Tanya. Kutcher also responded to her by claiming that she was “still alive.” It was later reported that Mike Pingel, her publicist, was misinterpreting a story by her longtime partner, Lance O’Brien.
O’Brien reportedly said on the phone that “she was gone” and that she was “gone” for the past few days. Interestingly, the story got even more complicated when it was reported just hours later that she had actually died.
CBS News reported about an hour ago that Tanya Roberts, who starred in A look at a murder and That ’70s show, was actually deceased. She was 65 years old.
According to The Associated Press, Roberts did not die of COVID-19 or any related illness; it was related to a urinary tract infection. So far, it’s not clear what Ashton Kutcher had to say about it, as it seemed like he spent most of his morning trying to refute the reports of her death.
Lance O’Brien reportedly spoke to her publicist and genuinely believed she had passed away at the time of their conversation. While she lived one more day, Tanya died not long after.
