The actor said he was terrified of the symptoms and said he was “lucky to be alive”

Actor Ashton Kutcher, 44, has revealed that he is unable to see, hear and walk due to vasculitis, an autoimmune disease.

He spoke about his experience with the disease on “Celebrity-Proof: The Challenge” with National Geographic host Bear Grylls.

Kutcher said he was diagnosed with a form of autoimmune vasculitis, without specifying which one exactly, two years ago.

“Three years ago, I had a strange and very rare form of vasculitis, which impaired my vision, hearing and balance,” he said.
