Topher Grace gatecrashed Wilmer's date

Topher Grace voiced Wilmer Valderrama's car during a date once.

The actors starred opposite each other in hit TV series That '70s Show and became close pals during their time filming. There was plenty of fun to be had away from the camera, especially when it came to winding each other up.

"Mercedes was actually the first car that had your voice coming out of all the speakers... Wilmer Valderrama, who played Fez on That '70s Show, he was the first one who had a Mercedes," Topher told talkshow host Jimmy Kimmel. "I was talking to him once on the phone and he was picking some girl up on a date. He said, 'She's coming to the car, I gotta go,' and I said, 'Oh no, leave me on.'

"And so she got into the car - I don't think she was that bright - and she's like, 'Hi! How are you?' And Wilmer said (puts on a funny accent), 'Hey, good to see you.' And I said (in a robotic voice), 'Where would you like me to drive?' She goes, 'Ohhhh, is that the car?' I said, 'Yes ma'am, may I say you smell lovely this evening... You just do the talking, I'll do the driving.' [It went on for] way too long."

Topher's former co-stars also include Orange Is the New Black's Laura Prepon and happy couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. The onscreen lovers brought their romance to real life in 2012 and they tied the knot earlier this year.

Topher recently shared how delighted he is that they married and now have daughter Wyatt, ten months, together.

"It's so cool. Imagine two of your great high school friends, who weren't dating in high school but were buddies and you're all in the same friend group and they grow up and they fall in love, get married, have a kid," he told People earlier this week.
