It is a commonly known fact that actors need to find the right connect with their on-screen characters in order to make their performances more believable. But actor Ashton Kutcher was surprised by his strong reaction to the death of Steve Jobs.
“When he passed away, I had this bizarre emotional reaction and I didn’t know what it was. I was like, ‘Wow, why am I so shook up about this?’ And I started thinking about all the ways my life was affected by this guy and began learning about him anywhere and everywhere I could,” he recalls.
Only a few months later, Ashton was offered the role of the tech whiz in the upcoming biopic, Jobs. Though his connection was more on a personal level, it undoubtedly helped the actor portray him better.
