Ashton Kutcher is currently starring in a new movie called “Jobs” about the life of Apple entrepreneur Steve Jobs and he admits that the role took a toll on his health.
Ashton took on a fruit only diet as part of the role during the filming for the movie, but was rushed to the hospital as a result. The diet was a favorite of the co-founder of Apple, but it left Ashton sick.
He revealed in a new interview, “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 went on to say, “My pancreas levels were like completely out of whack. It was really terrifying…considering everything.”
After studying Steve for the role, he said that he found that they had quite a bit in common. He said, “We both have a ravenous interest in the tech space. He’s a guy that failed and got back on the horse. 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.”
