Actor Ashton Kutcher drew gasps and muffled laughter at the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL on Saturday (17JAN04) - when he arrived dressed as a cowboy.

The 25-year-old JUST MARRIED star, boyfriend of 42-year-old actress DEMI MOORE, turned up for the world premiere of his new movie The Butterfly Effect wearing a white cowboy hat, a neckerchief hanging outside an ivory shearling jacket and jeans.

He joked, "Somebody lied to me. They told it was Sundance and I had to dress up like Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid. Now I'm standing here like (a jerk)."
