Illustration for article titled Following Steve Jobs Insane Fruit Diet Put Ashton Kutcher in the Hospital

Ashton Kutcher, method actor, truly goes the distance to capture the essence of a character. In the case of portraying Steve Jobs for the upcoming indie flick jOBS, Kutcher put himself on a diet of strictly fruits, nuts, and seeds, mimicking Jobs 'fruitarian' lifestyle.


The results? Inspiration, insight, and one fucked up pancreas.

With his adherence to Steve Jobs' crazypants consumption, Kutcher ended up biting off more than he could, er, chew. As he told USA Today:

I went to the hospital like two days before we started shooting the movie. I was like doubled over in pain. My pancreas levels were completely out of whack. It was really terrifying … considering everything.


Sounds terribly unpleasant, but anything in the name of art. [Business Insider via USA Today]
