Sundance 2013 | Ashton Kutcher JOBS Movie Premiere Interview
31 Jan, 2013
During the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Cindy Maram of Dig In Magazine interviews actor Ashton Kutcher at the JOBS movie premiere. Edited by Cindy Maram. Filmed by Chris Barrett.
Dig In Magazine-Cindy Maram: Hi Ashton! How are you? I’m Cindy with Dig In Magazine.
Ashton Kutcher: How’s it going?
CM: What made you want to [get] involved in this film [‘Jobs’] as I know you’re a big techy and follower of Apple?
AK: Well, I’m very interested in technology. I’m very interested in innovation. And I’m very interested in entrepreneurship as a whole. So, if you look at that collective, there’s a natural hero in that collective consciousness and that’s Steve Jobs. To me, he’s heroic in the things that he accomplished in his life. To go from a kid that was dropping out of college that didn’t have enough money in his pocket to starting a company…and sells his van to start a company…to having the most successful business in the history of the world. It’s a pretty inspiring story! And it wasn’t really an opportunity as much [as it was] an honor to play him.
CM: What do you want audiences to take away from this film and your role [as] Steve Jobs?
AK: I want people to get excited about building things. I want kids to grow up and think [that] my only option is not only to only work in this institution or this factory or this thing, [but] that they could come up with an idea or solve a problem, and turn that into a business for themselves. And create innovation. And create positive change in the world with the tools that they created.
CM: Wonderful! Thanks so much and best of luck with the film!
AK: Thank you!
