Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad kicked off the Macworld/iWorld conference, talking about their new feature film ‘Jobs’ that premiered at Sundance. Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad play Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in the movie. The Next Web wrote down most of their conversation and can be found after the break.

“Steve believed it was possible to do something impossible,” says Kutcher, alluding to the third thing that he took away from the film. He made reference to [a] famous quote that Jobs gave in an interview.

Kutcher says that this stuck with him. “When I heard that,” says Kutcher, “he was talking to me, and he was talking to you. He was saying ‘don’t settle’ for what life gives you, make life better.”

And this, addressing criticisms aimed at the movie, including from Steve Wozniak himself:

“There will always be debates about what we got right and what we got wrong,” says Gad, “but if I had a chance to sit down with him I’d explain that it was done with the utmost love, admiration and respect. And I hope when he sees it…in its entirety, that he can understand that.”

“We weren’t there,” says Kutcher. “Part of it is, in filmmaking, you have to make a narrative that plays. If you look at the events of these guys’ journey together, there were probably a lot of moments where there was nobody else there. You have to ride the arc of entertainment of the film and stay true to who the people were, how the people were and what the intent was.”

‘Jobs’ premieres nationwide on April 19th.
