‘So then my dad comes, picks me up, and it’s like, we’re going to go see your brother and I’m like … everything is not okay,’

The Just Married actor continued:

‘And he flatlines in the room. And I know that noise because now I’ve been visiting occasionally and watching the thing go and then it flatlines out and they’re like, you’ve got to dun dun dun and they’re grabbing me and they take me out and I’m like, what the hell is going [on]?’

Kutcher confessed:

‘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,’

The actor who is married to Mila Kunis said he was thankfully able to recover from the disease but it took him a full year to ‘build it all back up.’

For those who don’t know, Vasculitis is a rare disease that involves the inflammation of the blood vessels causing the walls to thicken, and reducing the width of the passageway through the vessel.

Kutcher confessed that his experience with the illness gave him a new-found perspective on his health and his senses. The Jobs actor confessed that he never realized how important the senses were until he lost them.

The human rights activist admitted:

‘You don’t really appreciate it, until it’s gone,’
