Ashton Kutcher Hospitalized Due to Fruit Diet for jOBS Role

By - Source: TIME | B 66 comments

Kutcher's diet consisted of fruit, nuts and seeds.

Ashton Kutcher has revealed that he was hospitalized two days before filming began in order to play Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic of the late Apple co-founder, jOBS.

"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 like doubled over in pain," he said after the film's premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

"My pancreas levels were completely out of whack. It was really terrifying," he added. Kutcher's diet constituted of solely fruit, nuts and seeds; the film claims Jobs diet consisted of said food products. The Apple co-founder passed away at the age of 56 during 2011 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Kutcher also said he worked on replicating Jobs' hunched walk and how he generally behaved by studying tapes. He shared "a ravenous interest in the tech space" with Jobs: "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."

jOBS, which has a fabricated opening scene according to Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, is scheduled for a release in the U.S. on April 19.

    but yet steve jobs lived that long off said foods, but ended up dieing from pancreatic cancer? And Kutcher, had pancreatic problems in a few months? Weird stuff.

    Shows what kind of doctors steve jobs used, they must have signed a TOS that was strict to his every words and what he wanted. Which ended up killing him in the end.

    on a second note, I bet he had 1000% Hershey squirts all day, every day on an all fruit diet.

    He may have been eating all of the relevant apple colours to complete the Apple logo. Then he became blue (the bottom color of the old Apple logo).

    no offense but based on what ive read, all those did not help his acting :) 

    If they showed jobs dropping the F bomb, i will watch this movie.

    why the need to copy the exact diet? marketing.

    Nah, it called artist, some require to themselves to live in a fashion close to the person they are acting, has to mentally prepare themselves into the role, in extreme case you end up with caricature like Josh Birk in Saint Row 3.

    This is why I hate celebrities; they're idiots. First of all, a teenage girl doesn't even use the word "like" that many times in a sentence. That's extremely unprofessional. Secondly, most people understand the simple concept that when you radically change your diet, your body is going to react. It's usually not good either. Moderation is key, and going at it in a more gradual fashion.

    For those wondering if there is a relation yes. One acute pancreatic crysis already increases the risk of pancreatic cancer. Repeated crysis, in conjuction with altered pancreatic enzymes (which are very very toxic), create a state of fibrosis and continuous inflammation which gives rise to a state of hyper-proliferation of immune cells. That increases the risk of cancer manyfold.

    The practicing of the walk I get but taking the diet was going a bit far. I get the whole to get into character be the character thing but there has to be sane limit to that. At-least we now know to never cast Kutcher as Vincent van Gogh. (Wonder how many will get that.)

    Steve Jobs love him or hate him. A very intelligent, well respected innovator and developer.

    Ashton Kutcher = self proclaimed actor. Self proclaimed techy guy. Completely horrible at acting. Relies solely on the exposure of a quirky 70s lovefest show. Pretty much, all around dousche bag. Anyone who disliked Jobs, well, this is the medicine. What a horrible POS to have portray Jobs and his contribution to modern computing.
