“Kutcher says that he started a fruit-only diet to prepare to play the Apple co-founder for the biopic jOBS, which premiered Friday night at the Sundance Film Festival,” Alexander reports. “The diet, which the film claims Jobs adhered to, ended up sending Kutcher to the hospital with pancreas problems.”

Alexander reports, “‘First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to like severe issues,’ Kutcher said after the film’s screening. ‘I went to the hospital like two days before we started shooting the movie.
