In case you didn’t know, Ashton Kutcher has a twin brother named Michael Kutcher. He now shared he was mortified in 2003 when his actor twin brother opened up about him having cerebral palsy in a TV interview.

Michael Kutcher, now 43, didn’t like talking publicly about the disorder, which affects his vision, speech, hearing, and some mobility. And his brother, the star of TV’s biggest sitcom, told the world.

“I was very angry. Very angry. I remember speaking to him about it,” Michael, said in an interview with TODAY Parents. “I didn’t want to be the face of CP. I never talked about it.” Seventeen years later, Michael is no longer angry with his brother, whom he calls by his first name, Chris.

That interview changed Michael’s life for the better. “Chris did me the biggest favor he’s ever done because he allowed me to be myself,” Michael said. He became deeply active in cerebral palsy activism when, months after the Two And A Half Men star’s interview, a woman asked him if he’d be interested in speaking at a gala.
