Ashton Kutcher almost lost his brother.
On the first episode of Paramount Plus' The Checkup With Dr. David Agus, the 44-year-old actor from Two and a Half Men sits down for his first interview with his twin brother Michael, who was born with cerebral palsy and underwent a heart transplant.
In this rare video, Kutcher recounts a tearful incident that occurred when his brother was in the hospital.
"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," Kutcher remembers with teary eyes.
"And he flatlines in the room," he adds. "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]?"
In a show trailer, the brothers are seen sharing a heartfelt moment on the couch as Michael holds Kutcher's hands and he wipes away tears.
In a 2003 TV interview, Kutcher disclosed his brother's diagnosis of cerebral palsy, a decision that Michael had initially been "mad" over before accepting.
