Steve Wozniak gave his opinion about the new Aston Kutcher movie “Jobs,” that is a portrayal of former Apple cofounder/CEO Steve Jobs. Wozniak says that he was entertained by the acting in the film, but he thinks a lot was wrong in the version of the story. According to huffingtonpost.com:
“Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, took to the discussion section after seeing the film, writing, ‘I saw “Jobs” tonight. I thought the acting throughout was good. I was attentive and entertained but not greatly enough to recommend the movie.”‘
“He went on to speak to Kutcher’s portrayal of Jobs by saying, ‘I suspect a lot of what was wrong with the film came from Ashton’s own image of Jobs.”
In the video above, Woz is being interviewed by Bloomberg TV. While he tries to come off as neutral and unbiased about the film, his emotional tone seems to suggest otherwise. He also didn’t seem to remember the fact that he was watching a movie based on the true story, as opposed to a documentary.
Wozniak also says that Ashton could have called him to get the facts of the movie correct. He also addresses Kutcher’s accusation that he was bad-mouthing the film because he is consulting on another film about Jobs which is being written by award winning writer Aaron Sorkin.
“Jobs” premiered over the weekend and hasn’t gotten the best reviews, and now Wozniak is adding to the chorus.
