Ashton Kutcher appears as presenter at ACM Awards alongside The Ranch's Sam Elliott
They're two Hollywood hunks from different generations.
Ashton Kutcher and Sam Elliott, co-stars on Netflix's Emmy-winning comedy The Ranch, emerged together as presenters at Sunday's 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards.
The 40-year-old star, who stars as Colt Bennett on the show, wore a black three-piece suit over a white collar shirt, with his short-cropped brown hair combed to the side.

Representing: The Ranch's Ashton Kutcher, 40, and Sam Elliott, 73, were presenters Sunday at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas
The 73-year-old Elliott, who plays Beau Bennett on the streaming series, wore a black suit with a dark blue tie, with his trademark bushy mustache and neatly-cut white hair as he presented the ACM's Vocal Event of the Year along with the Iowa native.
Ashton, who has two children with wife Mila Kunis, 34 - three-year-old daughter Wyatt and one-year-old son named Dimitri - earlier revealed he would be making a cameo at the swanky affair via his Twitter account, the same one he made history with nine years ago this month, when he became the site's very first account to amass one million followers. (He currently sits at 19.2 million.)
The dual appearance marked a strong promotion for The Ranch, which got rid of cast member Danny Masterson last December after he was accused of sexual assault by multiple women.
Nextflix at the time issued a statement that read: 'As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of The Ranch. Yesterday was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him.'

Masterson, 42, who played Jameson 'Rooster' Bennett on the series, issued his own statement in which he said that he was 'obviously very disappointed' to be eliminated from the program, defending himself against what he called the 'outrageous allegations,' which he has repeatedly denied.
'Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit,' said Masterson. 'I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one.'
He presumably referenced the #MeToo movement in his parting statement, as his ouster came in the wake of a number of Hollywood figures - such as Harvey Weinstein, Brett Ratner and Kevin Spacey - losing work amid accusations of sexual harassment and assault against them. He said: 'In this country, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, in the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused.'
