Ashton Kutcher, most recently known for his role in Two and a Half Men, was hospitalized prior to beginning filming of his new movie, jOBS.
The actor is portraying Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) co-founder Steve Jobs in the biopic and was attempting a fruit-only diet to prepare for the role, E! Online reports. The diet caused Kutcher to be hospitalized for two days with severe pancreatic issues.
The choice of Kutcher for the role of Jobs has been controversial. The other Apple founder, Steve Wozniak, has been very critical of the movie and Kutcher in the part. “Not close … we never had such interaction and roles … I’m not even sure what it’s getting at … the personalities are very wrong although mine is closer,” Wozniak told E! Online.
The biopic opens in April.
