Kutcher was ready for criticism for 'Jobs'

Feb 5 2013, 2:10am CST | by

Los Angeles, Feb 5 (IANS) Actor Ashton Kutcher says he knew he would face some kind of criticism when he decided to work in "Jobs", a biopic based on Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

Los Angeles, Feb 5 — Actor Ashton Kutcher says he knew he would face some kind of criticism when he decided to work in "Jobs", a biopic based on Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

Kutcher plays the lead role in the movie, which was tagged as inaccurate after it was premiered last week at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

"He's a guy who failed and got back on the horse. I think we can all relate to that," thesun.co.uk quoted Kutcher as saying.

He added: "It was like throwing myself into massive amounts of criticism because somebody's going to go, 'Well, it wasn't exactly accurate'."

The movie also stars actor Josh Gad, who plays Jobs's partner Steve Wozniak in the movie.

Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, the movie is set to release April 19.
