Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad have defended their biopic of Steve Jobs as an accurate depiction of the origins of Apple.
Kutcher and Gad, who play Jobs and Apple's co-founder Steve Wozniak respectively in the forthcoming release – called, simply, Jobs – rebuffed complaints from Wozniak that the film bungled elements of the company's origins and phenomenal rise in the 1970s and 80s.
On Thursday, the pair told Macworld/iWorld, an annual gathering of Apple enthusiasts in San Francisco, that they went deep into the roles and even filmed at Jobs's family home in Los Altos to boost authenticity.
"We filmed at the actual house. We got to meet his stepmother and sister. It was surreal for them to see this transpire all over again in the same place that it happened," said Gad.
