What’s Your Take On Ashton Kutcher Becoming A Fruitarian?


Listen to the podcast:

Ashton Kutcher, 34, is an American actor. He is most famous for his relationship with Demi Moore that lasted several years & also for the hidden camerapractical joke TV series Punk’d. He recently portrayed Steve Jobs in a biopic that will be released in April of this year. To prepare for the role, he became a fruitarian like Steve Jobs & ended up in the hospital two days before they started shooting the movie. Apparently, his pancreatic levels were completely “out of whack”!

I can’t believe he took the method acting approach that far. I also never thought that a fruit-only diet could give such violent reactions.

Here are 3 questions for you: What do you know about Ashton Kutcher? Would you ever consider becoming a fruitarian? Are you looking forward to watching this biopic?
