The intense all-fruit diet Ashton Kutcher followed to impersonate Steve Jobs may have landed the actor in the hospital, but it sure seems to be working.
Kutcher's appearance is so similar to Jobs' that it's eerie, judging by an image Kutcher tweeted earlier this month to tease the upcoming biopic "jOBS," in which Kutcher stars.
The root of the image is an iconic photo of Steve Jobs wearing one of his trademark black turtlenecks. In the original image, Jobs stares directly into the camera, flashing a smile like the "Mona Lisa," placing his hand thoughtfully on his chin. In the version tweeted by Kutcher, the celebrity's own likeness takes up half the image, while Jobs occupies the remainder. At first glance, it's nearly impossible to determine which half is which. Only after careful scrutiny could we pick out Kutcher on the left, Jobs on the right.
Apple may be famous for the tagline, "Think Different," but Kutcher (or his makeup artist, at least) seems to have done an amazing job of making him look awfully similar to the late Apple co-founder.
