IMTA Alumni Are All About Real Men!

IMTA alumni Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Biel and Eva Longoria are featured in the public service announcements against slavery and human trafficking in the Real Men Campaign. Demi and Ashton created the organization to educate the public on the issue affecting thousands of women and children in America each day.

Ashton competed at IMTA in 1997 when he was awarded Most Sought After Male Model, which meant he had the most callback requests from the agents, managers and casting directors who were at IMTA scouting. Upon winning Most Sought After Male Model at the New York 1997 Convention, Ashton said:

"If you want to be a model, actor, singer or dancer, IMTA is the place to be! I'm on the top of my world right now!"

Eva competed at IMTA in 1998 where she amazed the judges with her dazzling talent and gorgeous look. She moved to Los Angeles soon after IMTA, and landed spots on 90210 and General Hospital. With her incredible talent, she also joined the cast of The Young and the Restless. In 2004, she became the nation's favorite housewife as Gabby Solis on Desperate Housewives which airs Sundays at 9/8c on ABC. Her latest films include Days of Grace, Without Men, and Cristiada.
Jessica Biel attended IMTA in 1994 and signed with a manager that helped her land the famous role as Mary Camden on 7th Heaven! Jessica has also been featured in feature films such as Next, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, Valentine's Day, and The A-Team. Jessica is currently working on Playing the Field, The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, and Total Recall, all set for release in 2012.
