Cape Town - Talk about working through your feelings!

Ashton Kutcher recently revealed some rather surprising details about his divorce from Demi Moore when he sat down for an interview with fellow actor Dax Shepard on his podcast, Armchair Expert.

The 40-year-old, who’s now married to That ’70s Show co-star Mila Kunis (34), says that in 2013 he retreated into the woods with nothing but water, tea and a notebook.

“Right after I got divorced I went to the mountains for a week by myself,” the Two and a Half Men star told Dax.

“I had no food, no drink – just water and tea. I took all my computers away, my phone, my everything.

“I was there by myself, so there was no talking. I just had a notepad, a pen and water and tea – for a week.”

While he enjoyed his experience in the woods, The Ranch actor admits he started hallucinating a bit on day two, which prompted him to start doing t’ai chi.

“I started to hallucinate on like day two, which was fantastic,” he said. “It was pretty wonderful. I was doing t’ai chi with my own energy.

“I was just doing what came to me,” he laughed.

The dad of two also said he did it to get some closure from all his relationships.

“I wrote down every single relationship I had where I felt like there was some grudge or some anything, regret, anything.

“And I wrote letters to every single person, and on day seven I typed them all out and then sent them.

“It was like an [Alcoholics Anonymous] exercise. I was like, ‘I’ve probably done some damage.’ So I just cleared the palette.”

Ashton and Demi (55) got divorced back in 2013, almost two years after they announced their split, People reports.

“I’ll forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail,” Ashton wrote in a press release at the time.
