Days before the movie JOBS released, Kutcher rang the NYSE opening bell. And as you've already read, tech luminaries such as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, along with critics, weren't too pleased with the indie film's representation.
Kutcher admitted that he was prepared for a critical reception from film critics and moviegoers but emphasized that he had some solid groundwork to depict the business legend.
"I consumed what Steve consumed — the books he read, the food he ate and the things from the people he admired", Kutcher said. He observed Jobs' past behaviors, mannerisms, accent, and more. He went on to YouTube for videos and soundcloud files, to talk like him. To present like him. He event ate like Jobs, which landed him in the hospital just days before filming started.
He met with Jobs' friends and colleagues from former software executive Avie Tevanian, Dreamworks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and computer scientist Alan Kay.
"Steve was an entrepreneur," Kutcher says. "I hope this movie inspires people to be entrepreneurs, build things, fail big and change the world."
In his recent viral speech from the Teen Choice Awards where he won the Ultimate Choice award he said:
"Steve Jobs said when you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way that it is and that your life is to live your life inside the world and try not to get in too much trouble and maybe get an education and get a job and make some money and have a family," Kutcher said in the speech.
"But life can be a lot broader than that when you realize one simple thing, and that is that everything around us that we call life was made up by people that are no smarter than you. And you can build your own things, you can build your own life that other people can live in. So build a life, don't live one — build one." Check out the video below:
