Ashton Kutcher's latest starring role took a toll on his health.
The 34-year-old actor has revealed he was rushed to hospital before shooting his new movie Jobs about the late entrepreneur Steve Jobs after embarking on a fruit-only diet for the biopic, favored by the Apple co-founder who died of pancreatic cancer in 2011.
He told USA Today at the premiere of the movie at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on Friday, "First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to like severe issues. I went to the hospital like two days before we started shooting the movie. I was doubled over in pain. My pancreas levels were like completely out of whack. It was really terrifying ... considering everything."
The Two And A Half Men star studied hundreds of hours of footage of Steve for the role and claims he discovered they had a lot in common.
