Ashton Acted Out When Young Because Of Stress
Ashton Kutcher was always interested in acting though he acted out in school, even trying to break in one day to burglarize it. While he escaped sentencing, his behavior did make him a bit of a loner considering no one wanted to befriend him anymore. Kutcher says a lot of it happened because he was stressed out about his brother's health. He also said that he never wanted to come home because he didn't want to hear more bad news about Michael.
Disabilities Apart, Michael Kutcher Is A Successful Man
Michael Kutcher, Ashton's twin, somehow managed to survive all the curveballs life threw at him. Today, he is a motivational speaker and works with children with disabilities as well as actively campaigning for organ donation. He runs an organization called Reaching For The Stars, aimed at helping children with disabilities in whatever way they can. Clearly, Michael Kutcher has made the best out of whatever life handed to him, and that is something his twin, Ashton, may have learned from him.
Ashton & Michael Have A Deep Bond
Ashton has a deep connection with Michael, as do all twins. He once said, “I was born a twin and from the moment I came into this world I had to share it with someone. I shared every birthday, every Christmas, I shared my bedroom, I shared my clothes, I shared everything I had in this world and I didn’t know that there was another way because I always had my brother with me.” Twins have a nearly visceral bond, and Ashton & Michael are no different.
Today, Ashton Admires Michael For What He Is
To Hello magazine, Ashton confessed all the regrets he had. He said, “I spent years and years feeling bad about it, our inequalities. He (Michael) also taught me that he had gifts that I didn’t have. Extraordinary gifts that I didn’t have, and that every time I felt sorry for him in life, I made him less. He taught me that and he gave that to me.” Ashton once may have thought, even felt guilty about being the "normal twin", but his brother and their bond are definitely special and Ashton knows that now...
