Ashton Kutcher’s brother Michael Kutcher opened up about his feelings toward the actor for sharing his twin’s cerebral palsy diagnosis globally during a 2003 interview. According to Mayo Clinic, cerebral palsy – a disorder that strikes “movement and muscle tone/posture,” & Michael, who was diagnosed at 3yrs old, tells he attempted to cover it for most of his life.
“I was so angry. Very angry. I remember conversing with him about it,” Michael stated “Today” in an interview that was published Thursday. “I did not want to be the face of CP. I never ever talked about it.”
But Michael Kutcher is no-more angry with Ashton, or Chris, known to Iowa’s family & friends in his old hometown. Rather, he is grateful. The 2003 interview did turn the course of Michael’s life.
“So far, Chris has got benefited the most as he allowed me to be myself,” Michael Kutcher told. “Most of the time they would say yes, but sometimes they would say no, and Chris would go like, ‘Well, then I am not coming,'” Michael stated. “Chris would tell me, ‘I hope I could take all of this off of you and take it myself.”
As for Ashton Kutcher, he also reported Today, “My brother’s daily actions evoke me that life is not about running around hurdles it’s about running through them. Michael has a relentless work ethic & deep compassion for others.”
Michael serves as a spokesperson for the Cerebral Palsy Foundation & an advisor at Joshin, an app that will help families find care for a person with any disabilities. He says he will not change his life for anything. Today, the three happy wedded fathers in Colorado are spokespersons for the CPF. Based in Minnesota, the startup was established by both sisters Melanie Fountain & Melissa Danielson. Marked after his brother Josh, who has a developmental disability.
