Ashton Kutcher Followed Steve Jobs’ Diet And Ended Up In The Hospital

Ashton Kutcher played the role of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in the movie jOBS.  Kutcher applied a method acting technique to the role, which means that he tried to apply the emotions, thoughts, and essence of their characters.  Kutcher even took on the same diet Jobs had, which involved eating only fruit.  This ended up putting Kutcher in the hospital.

“The fruitarian diet can lead to like severe issues … I went to the hospital two days before we started shooting the movie. I was doubled over in pain. My pancreas levels were like completely out of whack. It was really terrifying, considering everything,” stated Kutcher.

At the Sundance Film Festival, jOBS premiered and it received some positive reviews.  However Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak believes that the movie is not accurate.
