Ashton Kutcher regrets never meeting Steve Jobs

ashtonAshton Kutcher regrets missing a chance to meet Steve Jobs before his death because he was working.

 

The 35-year-old actor plays the Apple tycoon in the upcoming biopic ‘Jobs’ and has revealed he was given the chance to meet the American businessman just months before his death in 2011, but had to refuse the offer due to work commitments.

 

He told ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’: “In hindsight I look back and I think, yeah, I had the opportunity to meet the Leonardo de Vinci of our generation – and I missed it”.

 

The ‘Two And A Half Men’ star admits he was devastated when he heard of Jobs’ passing and claims he took up the role because he wanted to do him justice and prove to people what he has given society.

 

He explained: “For me I’ll never forget the moment I heard that he died. I pulled my car up to the side of the road and kind of took a moment.

 

“When I got home, I sat down on my computer and I realised that all the relationships I have in my life are held together by glue that he laid down.

 

“I realised that I’d taken him for granted and taken for granted the contribution that he actually gave to society. I actually had a real emotional moment that day.

 

“I wanted to ensure that his legacy was told from someone who admired him.”
