Jobs ashton kutcher

It looks like playing late Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs has rubbed off a little on Ashton Kutcher.

During his acceptance speech at the recent Teen Choice Awards, Kutcher channeled the Apple icon, condensing his speech into three powerful points.

The first, that opportunity looks a lot like hard work sounds like something that would have resonated with Jobs, given how hard he pushed his teams.

Kutcher’s second point, that there’s nothing sexier than intelligence, thoughtfulness and generosity probably would’ve also sounded at home coming from Jobs’ mouth. Unlike Kutcher however, he probably wouldn’t have mentioned that you shouldn’t buy the “crap” people try to sell you with the promise that it’ll make you feel better about yourself. Or at the very least, Jobs would’ve added the caveat that you shouldn’t buy anything except the latest iThingy.

The actor’s third point though, about loving life is vintage Jobs: “Everything around us, that we call life was made up by people that are no smarter than you. And you can build your own things, you can build your own life that other people can live in. So build a life, don’t live one”.

Oh, and he also revealed that his first name is actually Chris.
