Aussies found Ashton Kutcher insulting as the actor joked about Aussies being naive on the life and works of Steve Jobs as CEO of Apple.
Ashton Kutcher looks uncannily like the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, as first look photographs of the biopic on Jobs' life are released.
Ashton was not able to redeem himself from his own blunder even when he commented that he like Hugh Jackman and had a hit on Nicole Kidman.
It seemed like Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was right about Ashton after all.
In a review of the film, which Wozniak personally wrote for Gizmodo, he said that Ashton was what was wrong about the film.
"I suspect a lot of what was wrong with the film came from Ashton's own image of Jobs. Ashton made some disingenuous and wrong statements about me recently (including my supposedly having said that the 'movie' was bad, which was probably Ashton believing pop press headlines) and that I didn't like the movie because I'm paid to consult on another one. These are examples of Ashton still being in character."
"I was turned off by the Jobs script. But I still hoped for a great movie," Mr Wozniak wrote.
"I thought the acting throughout was good, I was attentive and entertained but not greatly enough to recommend the movie. One friend who is in the movie said he didn't want to watch fiction so he wasn't interested in seeing it."
"I felt bad for many people I know well who were portrayed wrongly in their interactions with Jobs and the company. The movie ends pretty much where the great Jobs finally found product success (the iPod) and changed so many of our lives. I'm grateful to Steve for his excellence in the i-era, and his contribution to my own life of enjoying great products, but this movie portrays him having had those skills in earlier times."
The obviously disappointed and unimpressed review of Wozniak was sparked by Ashton's interview with the Associated Press accusing Wozniak of accepting payment from director Aaron Sorkin to endorse another Steve Jobs biopic to be made.
Ashton said that Wozniak was "extremely unavailable to us when producing this film."
"It's personal for him, but it's also business. We have to keep that in mind. He was also extremely unavailable to us when producing this film. He's a brilliant man and I respect his work, but he wasn't available to us as a resource, so his account isn't going to be our account because we don't know exactly what it was. We did the best job we could. Nobody really knows what happened in the rooms."
