Ashton Kutcher has appeared in the first ever Instagram film trailer as Steve Jobs.

The Two And A Half Men actor plays the late Apple boss in an upcoming biopic, and fittingly for the technology pioneer it is the first movie to launch a preview on the social networking site.

The Jobs trailer begins with a topless Ashton slamming down a phone in anger and rolls through office scenes, Ashton at a technology conference as Steve Jobs, and holding up Apple products.

The voiceover says: "Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."

Ashton recently told Esquire magazine: "Jobs was an extraordinary guy, but a very ordinary guy in many ways. There was this one speech that I found where he said, 'So when you grow up, if you spend your life trying not to bounce into walls, just inheriting what you get, you gotta know your life can be a lot broader than that.'

"Once you realise one simple thing: Everything around you that you call life was made by people who are no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things that other people can use."

Jobs is due to be released in cinemas in August.

Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
