Ashton Kutcher ended up in a hospital twice while on a “dumb” diet for his role as Steve Jobs, his wife Mila Kunis reveals.
In 2013, Ashton Kutcher made a remarkable performance in the movie Jobs, playing the iconic Apple CEO Steve Jobs. A few years later, during an appearance on First We Feast’s Hot Ones, the actor revealed he had to go on a fruitarian diet to prepare for the role.
At the time, Kutcher was forced to eat mostly fruits, nuts, and seeds. He also admitted that he would end up in a hospital from drinking too much carrot juice.
However, his wife, actress Mila Kunis, claimed he was “downplaying” the severity of the impact of this particular diet on his health, Unilad reports. In a Spousal Fact Check during a recent episode of Hot Ones, she said her husband was “so dumb” when preparing for the role as Steve Jobs because he “only ate grapes at one point, it was so stupid.”
Shockingly, the Bad Moms star stated Kutcher was hospitalized “twice with pancreatitis” while on the fruitarian diet.
“So fact check, yes, it was really dumb.”
Previously, in an interview with USA Today, The Butterfly Effect actor confessed the fruitarian diet “can lead to like severe issues.” He said:
“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.”
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher met on the set of the That ’70s Show.
On-screen, the pair played the controversial couple Jackie Burkhart and Michael Kelso. In April 2012, they made the show’s millions of fans incredibly happy after starting dating in real life. They got married in 2015 and have two beautiful children – Wyatt, 7, and Dimitri, 5.
