Ashton Kutcher Hospitalised After Following Steve Jobs's Fruit Diet

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's 'fruitarian' lifestyle.

The results? Inspiration, insight and one messed-up pancreas.

With his adherence to Steve Jobs's 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]
