Ashton Kutcher made his acting debut in the Fox sitcom That ’70s Show as Michael Kelso. He has received various accolades, including the People’s Choice Award. Ashton Kutcher recently revealed in an upcoming episode of “Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge” that he developed vasculitis two years ago, which left him unable to see, hear, or walk.
According to Access, Ashton Kutcher revealed that an autoimmune disorder has left him unable to see, hear, or walk. “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,” Kutcher said.
The “That ’70s Show” alum claimed it took him nearly a year to build each sense. According to the Mayo Clinic, vasculitis is an extremely rare autoimmune disorder that can cause inflammation of the blood vessels, resulting in restricted blood flow. There are several forms of vasculitis, but the majority of them damage at least one organ.
“You don’t really appreciate it until it’s gone. Until you go, ‘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.’”
“[I’m] lucky to be alive.”
Kutcher has totally recovered from his terrifying health crisis. The “No Strings Attached” actor stated that no challenge stands in his way of success. “The minute you start seeing your obstacles as things that are made for you, to give you what you need, then life starts to get fun, right?” said Kutcher, who shares two children with wife Mila Kunis.
“You start surfing on top of your problems instead of living underneath them.”
The former “Punk’d” host’s episode of “Running Wild” airs Monday at 9 p.m. EST on National Geographic. It sounds like he had a lot to go into during that episode. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
