The 39-year-old actor was honored with the Robert D. Ray Pillar of Character Award at the Ron Pearson Center in West Des Moines, Iowa, on Saturday. The award recognized Kutcher’s “good character as a role model” and he said his family had a lot to do with helping to shape his reputation.

Kutcher kicked off the speech by joking that he was likely the first person to be honored with the award who was also arrested when they were 18 for “felony burglary,” which allegedly occurred when the Cedar Rapids native tried to break into his high school.

The Ranch star also joked about being “pulled over by a state trooper while tripping on mushrooms,” and getting his name “splashed across every gossip magazine as an adulterer,” years ago.

However, he said his missteps in the past taught him “it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you learn from the mistakes that you make and how you perceive the world that’s coming at you.”

Kutcher also dedicated the award to his wife, “who kicks my ass on character every day.” In fact, he’d just received a wake-up call on the subject that very morning.

“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,” he recalled. “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!”

“When my wife and I had these kids and we got to share that amazing, amazing, amazing honor, my first response was, I wanted to call my parents and say, ‘I’m sorry, because I never knew how much you loved me,'” he recalled.

Kutcher also credited his brother, Michael Kutcher, for teaching him about his capacity for love and acceptance.

“My brother was born with cerebral palsy and it taught me that loving people isn’t a choice and that people aren’t actually all created equal,” Kutcher shared, getting emotional. “The Constitution lies to us. We’re not all created equal. We’re all created incredibly unequal to one another, in our capabilities and what we can do and how we think and what we see. But we all have the equal capacity to love one another, and my brother taught me that.”
