An American movie star best known for his comedy but who’s taken on other genres, like The Butterfly Effect, Ashton Kutcher arrived in Rio de Janeiro this past Sunday.

On the itinerary, a photo session for an advertising campaign alongside top model Alessandra Ambrósio.

However, as previously reported in the media, Kutcher wanted to make the most of his time in Rio by training Jiu-Jitsu with the Gracie family. His wish, in part, was fulfilled this Monday.

Kutcher trained at the academy of one of Carlson Gracie’s greatest pupils, Master Ricardo De La Riva, as pictured in the photo released over Twitter by the Sensei Sportv television program (@senseiofficial).

Could the actor be planning to use the gentle art in one of his upcoming movies?
