Steve Wozniak - Apple Co-Founder Disses Ashton Kutcher's 'Jobs' Performance

Steve Wozniak was far from impressed with Ashton Kutcher's performance in 'Jobs'.

The Apple co-founder has blamed the 'Two and a Half Men' actor's misinformed portrayal of his former business partner, Steve Jobs - who passed away from pancreatic cancer in October 2011 - for the failure of Joshua Michael Stern's new biopic.

Woznick branded Ashton ''disingenuous'' and described the account of Jobs' life, from his college days to the release of the iPod in 2001, as ''fiction''.

Taking to the comments section of a Gizmodo review of the movie, Wozniak posted: ''I saw 'Jobs' tonight. I thought the acting throughout was good. I was attentive and entertained but not greatly enough to recommend the movie.

''I suspect a lot of what was wrong with the film came from Ashton's own image of Jobs. Ashton made some disingenuous and wrong statements about me recently (including my supposedly having said that the 'movie' was bad, which was probably Ashton believing pop press headlines) and that I didn't like the movie because I'm paid to consult on another one. These are examples of Ashton still being in character.''

The 35-year-old actor famously spent three months preparing for his role as the computer visionary, immersing himself in footage of Jobs, copying his extreme fruitarian diet and even learning to walk like him.

Wozniak remained unmoved by his efforts, however, and went on to say the film's doesn't give enough credit to certain crucial Apple employees.

He continued: ''The movie ends pretty much where the great Jobs finally found product success and changed so many of our lives.

''I'm grateful to Steve for his excellence in the i-era, and his contribution to my own life of enjoying great products, but this movie portrays him having had those skills in earlier times.

''One friend who is in the movie said he didn't want to watch fiction so he wasn't interested in seeing it ... I felt bad for many people I know well who were portrayed wrongly in their interactions with Jobs and the company.''
