The “extremely rare” autoimmune illness that altered Ashton Kutcher’s outlook on life was revealed.
For the first time, Kutcher discussed his diagnosis in a sneak peek for his upcoming episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls. He said to Grylls, “Like two years ago, I had this weird, super rare form of vasculitis that like knocked out my vision, it knocked out my hearing, it knocked out like all my equilibrium. I had to rebuild everything in about a year.
According to the Mayo Clinic, vasculitis involves blood vessel inflammation, which can reduce blood flow and cause organ or tissue damage. The Clinic states that the majority of vasculitis types are uncommon and can be either short-term or chronic.
When you think, “I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to see again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to hear again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to walk again,” the 44-year-old stated, “you don’t truly appreciate it until it’s gone. He continued, “Lucky to be alive.”
In the end, he claims that the event changed the way he saw the world. Life begins to get interesting, he said, “the moment you start seeing your challenges as something that are intended for you, to offer you what you need.” “You stop living under your troubles and start surfing on top of them.” Poetry!
Kutcher and his wife Mila Kunis, whom he originally met on the set of That ’70s Show, have two children together. Both actors recently appeared in a sequence for the That ’90s Show remake of the show, returning their well-known roles. He said of his 15-year return to the franchise, “It was incredibly sentimental to be back on the set.
The actors who originally played Kelso and Jackie felt a sense of obligation to return. Listen, we’re only in this situation because of that show, so let’s just go back and do this, we reasoned. We simply returned and had a good time for a week. It was so fun and haphazard.
