Kutcher: Not too soon for Jobs film

Ashton Kutcher stars as Steve Jobs in biopic Jobs

Ashton Kutcher has insisted he doesn't think his Steve Jobs biopic has come too soon.

The Two And A Half Men actor stars as the Apple co-founder in Jobs. Jobs was 56 when he died two years ago after suffering from pancreatic cancer.

Ashton said: "As time passes, I think the tales get taller. He'll become more glorified for the things he did right, and more vilified for the things he did wrong.

"We had a great opportunity to tell a story about a guy with an exponential amount of resources to inform us about what really happened - or as close to what really happened as they can recall."

The actor was a big fan of the pioneering entrepreneur and enjoyed researching his life in detail for the film.

He said: "I think Steve cared about the end result and wasn't worried about being liked and knew he would eventually be liked if his creations were properly executed.

"He was very blunt, but it's because he cared. I tried to look at his faults as his gifts, and I tried to understand it and not judge it.

"I think the way that guy received love in life was by creating products that people loved, and when they loved the products, they thereby loved him."

You may be busy with work and family, but these duties will never let up. If you continue to spend all of your energy on these things, you'll miss a golden opportunity. Ask colleagues and relatives for help with mundane errands while you focus on the long term financial future. If you don't protect your economic interests, nobody else will.More
