Apple Co-Founder Calls Jobs Biopic “Embarrassing”
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak apparently won’t be waiting in line to see the forthcoming Steve Jobs biopic “jOBS”.
A scene from the movie was released Thursday, presenting Jobs (played by Ashton Kutcher) pressuring Wozniak (played by Josh Gad) into seeing the big picture on their path to creating personal computers. Nice story, but Wozniak says it never happened.
In an e-mail to Gizmodo, Wozniak said, ”We were both kids. Our relationship was so different than what was portrayed. I’m embarrassed but if the movie is fun and entertaining, all the better. Anyone who reads my book iWoz can get a clearer picture.”
“jOBS” is scheduled for release April 19.
