Ashton Kutcher: ‘Steve Jobs Movie Took Toll on my Health’

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Ashton KutcherASHTON Kutcher says his new movie took a toll on his health.

The actor, 34, was rushed to hospital before shooting his new movie Jobs about the late entrepreneur Steve Jobs after embarking on a fruit-only diet for the biopic, favored by the Apple co-founder who died of pancreatic cancer in 2011.

“First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to like severe issues. I went to the hospital like two days before we started shooting the movie. I was doubled over in pain,” he said.

“My pancreas levels were like completely out of whack. It was really terrifying … considering everything.”

Ashton studied hundreds of hours of footage of Steve for the role and claims he discovered they had a lot in common.

“We both have a ravenous interest in the tech space. He’s a guy that failed and got back on the horse,” she said.

“I think we can all sort of relate to that in some place in our life where we are moving forward with something and we fall down. You have to have the guts to get back up and go again. I think I share that as well.”
