Ashton Kutcher Admits To Starving Himself In The Woods After Split With Demi Moore

It may be five years since his divorce, but Ashton Kutcher isn't done talking about his relationship with Demi Moore.

When the couple split in 2013, Kutcher decided to reflect on his life by heading to the mountains and fasting for a week.

Kutcher and Moore were married for six years before they decided to call it quits, and it wouldn't be long before he found love again with his former That 70's Show co-star Mila Kunis.

Rumors swirled around Kutcher had cheated on Moore (who is 16 years his senior), which eventually led to an acrimonious divorce.

"Right after I got divorced, I went to the mountains for a week by myself," Kutcher told Dax Shepard during an interview for his podcast, Armchair Expert.

Not only did the actor go on a fast, he also shied away from all forms of technology.

"I took all my computers away, my phone, my everything," he explained. "I was there by myself so there was no talking, and I just had a notepad and a pen and water and tea for a week."

Kutcher said he decided to go into the wilderness to gain clarity, and came out with more than he expected.

The Jobs star said he relished his alone time while in Montana, and even started to hallucinate.

"I started to hallucinate on like day two which was fantastic," he said. "It was pretty wonderful. I was doing tai chi with my own energy."

He also decided to become introspective about his former relationships with past romantic partners

"I wrote down every single relationship that I had where I felt like there was some grudge or some anything and then I wrote letters to every single person and sent the letters on day seven," Kutcher said. "I hand wrote them all and then typed them out and sent them."

While the actor didn't discuss how his exes responded to his letters, he said along with it being a therapeutic experience, and "really spiritual and kind of awesome."

"It was almost like an A.A. exercise, where I was like, 'I probably have done some damage,' so I just cleared [my] palate," Kutcher explained.

Now six years later, Kutcher is married to Kunis and have two children together, three-year-old daughter Wyatt and one-year-old son Dimitri.
