Anger has said that he started his career playing a changeling cherub in the Warner Bros. version. A dream in a summer night. From there, he collected Hollywood gossip and rumors in hollywood Babylon, a gaudy paperback that helped fund his experimental film career. Anger’s use of popular music, his overtly weird and occult themes, and his brash use of color influenced later filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese and John Waters. In many ways, Anger also pioneered what would become the music video, using editing and popular music to tell slick stories of lust and violence.

In a rare interview, twin brothers Ashton and Michael Kutcher opened up about both their connection and their split.

The couple appeared in the new Paramount+ series. “Doctor’s examination. David Agus.

Agus, Ashton Kutcher’s doctor, spoke to the actor for the first time about his struggle with autoimmune vasculitis.

He later sat down with his brothers to talk about Michael Kutcher, who had cerebral palsy, and the moment he nearly died as a child after contracting viral myocarditis, which caused his heart to enlarge and fail.

Both brothers became worried about Michael’s cardiac arrest when Ashton visited him in the intensive care unit.

“I walk into a room and I’m like, ‘Wow,'” Ashton Kutcher said, holding back tears. “I’m like… ‘Everything’s not okay.’ And he stands straight in the room, and I know that because of this noise now I sometimes visit.

He said he thought about jumping off the balcony to help his brother, since his heart would fit. Michael Kutcher received a donor heart 24 hours later.

He later had to undergo open-heart surgery after a blood clot was discovered. Meanwhile, Ashton Kutcher’s career as a model and actor took off, and he said he felt guilty.

“There was a point where I thought he was getting more attention than me,” said Michael Kutcher. “It got me to the point where I became jealous.”

The brothers discussed it, Michael Kutcher said, adding, “And once I took all the fame and all of it, I was able to just, you know, go back to it.”
