He has an older sister named Tausha and a fraternal twin brother named Michael, who had a heart transplant when they were young children. Michael also has cerebral palsy and is the spokesperson for the advocacy organization Reaching for the Stars.

Also, Michael’s cardiomyopathy caused Kutcher’s home life to become increasingly stressful. He told People that “I didn’t want to come home and find more bad news about my brother” his parents divorced when he was 16. Kutcher attended Washington High School in Cedar Rapids for his first year. Later he moved to Homestead, where he graduated from Clear Creek-Amana High School as the class of 1986.

In his high school years, he developed a passion for acting. During his senior year, he broke into his school with his cousin. They attempted to steal money but were arrested before leaving the scene. The court sentenced him to 180 hours of community service plus three years probation. After this, he lost all his college scholarships because they found out about it. At the same time, he became an outsider among classmates and members in their town who did not understand what happened that night.

Kutcher enrolled at the University of Iowa in August 1996, where his planned major was biochemical engineering. He wanted to cure his brother’s heart ailment. However, he got kicked out of his house because he “partied too hard” and had a few nights that were left unexplained. Since even after waking up, he had no idea what had happened the night before.
