(NEW YORK) — Ashton Kutcher was hospitalized with pancreas problems after following to a fruit-only diet to play the role of Steve Jobs for the biopic Jobs film, which premiered Friday at the Sundance Film Festival, USA Today reports.
The film claims that Jobs adhered to a fruitarian diet, which ultimately landed Kutcher in a hospital room two days before shooting the film. The actor said after the film’s screening that the diet can lead to severe issues and that the “terrifying” experiencing left him “doubled over in pain,” according to USA Today.
Jobs died from pancreatic cancer in October 2011.
The movie is slated for theaters in April.
