An apple a day keeps the doctor away right? Well, in moderation. "Two and a Half Men" actor Ashton Kutcher was hospitalized just before he started shooting the film "Jobs" after adopting a fruitarian diet, reported TheSeattlePi.com . Fruitarians try to eat a diet solely based on fruit. While talking to reporters at the recent Sundance Film Festival, Kutcher divulged he adopted Steve Jobs' fruitarian diet to help him better play the computer mogul. "I ended up in the hospital two days before we started shooting the movie," Kutcher told the Associated Press . "I was like doubled over in pain, and my pancreas levels were completely out of whack, which was completely terrifying, considering everything.

SAN FRANCISCO - Aaron Levie, the 29-year-old chief executive of Box Inc., walked the red carpet at the Oscars this year in a dark suit and tie, pressed white shirt and his trademark neon blue sneakers. "I asked about the sneaker dress code," said Levie, who like many Silicon Valley entrepreneurs doesn't like anything slowing him down, least of all a pair of dress shoes. "Apparently it was not a problem. " It was the movie industry's biggest night and Levie didn't waste any time talking up cloud computing to Hollywood stars including Harrison Ford.

Ashton Kutcher may have stepped into the starring role on "Two and a Half Men" just last year, but his spot at the top-rated CBS sitcom has made him TV's highest-paid actor, according to Forbes magazine, which just released its annual list of the highest-paid performers on TV. Kutcher replaces Charlie Sheen, the previous star of "Two and a Half Men," who topped Forbes' list last year. The magazine estimates that Kutcher earned $24 million from May 2011 to May 2012. "House" star Hugh Laurie hung up his stethoscope last year, but he still managed to land at No. 2 on the list with $18 million.

Ashton Kutcher is the latest famous name to be associated with a "swatting" - a malicious prank in which a seemingly serious distress call to police turns out to be a false alarm with a spoofed phone number, aimed at luring a SWAT team to swarm a particular location. Police hurried to Kutcher's Lake Hollywood home late Wednesday morning after a woman called police - more on that "call" later - and claimed to be hiding in a closet because there was an armed man inside the home, L.A.

I hadn't thought through that "yes we can" and "we are the change we've been waiting for" stuff. Now that Barack Obama is president and serious about this, though, someone might expect me to actually do something. I just didn't expect that person to be Ashton Kutcher. Here at the Sundance Film Festival, Kutcher asked celebrities to make a "presidential pledge" of what they'll do to help the country.

Demi Moore has filed divorce papers in response to those filed by Ashton Kutcher in December. Moore is seeking spousal support from Kutcher, reportedly the highest-paid man in television, and wants him to pay her legal fees, according to a document obtained by TMZ.

Ashton Kutcher, actor and Twitterer extraordinaire, is heading to space. According to a blog post by British billionaire Richard Branson, Kutcher is the 500th person to sign up for a Virgin Galactic flight that will take up to six passengers at a time on a sightseeing trip to suborbital space. The trip costs a cool $200,000, but can you really put a price on seeing the curvature of the Earth and enjoying a few moments of weightlessness? It is still unclear when Kutcher's flight will happen.

Ashton Kutcher is putting the moves on girlfriend Mila Kunis, or someone who appears to be Kunis, since the photo is so darn dark. But still: Kelso and Jackie, sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G. The "That '70s Show" costars, who have been dating for months, are seemingly caught in a liplock in a photo Kutcher posted on social media. The couple is barely visible as they smooch under a neon sign that says "Sun," but the arty shot is so backlit that their profiles almost blend into the background, save for Kunis' - or what appears to be Kunis' - messy bun and a little peek of Kutcher's eye. PHOTOS: Celebrity splits of 2013 "Sunset #nofilter," Kutcher captioned the photo that he shared Tuesday on both Twitter and Instagram . The deed went down in front of Sun Records in Memphis, Tenn., according to Us Weekly, and just after the "Two and a Half Men" star finalized his 2-year-long divorce from actress Demi Moore, 51, in late November.

Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer, stars of the CBS comedy "Two and a Half Men," have been named the highest-paid TV actors of 2013 by Forbes magazine. Despite flagging viewership as of late, the show makes most of its dough in syndication, which keeps its male stars -- old and new -- in the magazine's top 10 . Besides syndication, most of the actors on the list have some meager box-office bucks that helped boost their totals this year. The magazine calculates the earnings by speaking with producers, managers, agents and other individuals in the industry to figure out how much the actors made through their entertainment-related endeavors between June 2012 and June 2013, Forbes said.

WASHINGTON -- Speaking for more than 18 hours, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was bound to hit upon some familiar points and retread old arguments in his fight to stop spending on the Affordable Care Act . But the sprawling nature of his speech, intermittently interrupted by questions from colleagues, opened the door for some interesting references and, at times, strange rhetorical tactics. But few could expect that when Cruz took to the Senate floor at 2:41 p.m. Eastern time, he would go from drawing comparisons between the fight over the healthcare law and World War II, reading tweets using the #MakeDCListen hashtag , comparing Congress to World Wrestling Entertainment and reading “Green Eggs and Ham” to his daughters.

This weekend, audiences will get the chance to watch Steve Jobs, a man they've spent decades seeing in the news or their mind's eye, on the big screen, looking a little like a famous actor. “Jobs,” Joshua Michael Stern's take on the late icon, hits theaters after earlier premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, as Ashton Kutcher puts his best bare foot forward as the Apple founder. So it goes for actors these days. Older actors want to play monarchs and presidents. Younger performers once wanted to play rock stars.

Steve Jobs was known for innovating new platforms to deliver traditional content -- a symmetry that also seems at play with the marketing campaign for the new biopic about him. The trailer for “Jobs,” the Ashton Kutcher-starring film that looks primarily at the Apple founder early-mid career, premiered on Instagram, in what the social-media site is saying is the first-ever trailer to premiere there. Of course, Instagram allows for only 15 seconds of video, which here make for little more than a burst of images and Jobs' famous quote about the people who think they're crazy enough to change the world.

Ashton Kutcher has been getting rave reviews from audiences for his role in a biopic about Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last week, but the star doesn't seem ready to let go of the famed tech whiz just yet. Appearing at the Macworld trade show Thursday morning , Kutcher partook in some banter about his role model and said that he wanted to do justice in telling his story. "If this story is going to get told, I want to get it told in a way that honors my hero," Kutcher told the audience about reading the screenplay.  FULL COVERAGE: Sundance Film Festival 2013 The "jOBS" star tweeted a split-screen photo of himself and the Silicon Valley pioneer earlier this week with the caption, "Thank you Sundance for your support of Jobs.

"Jobs" opens with a scene of technology entrepreneur Steve Jobs introducing the iPod in 2001. As the Apple Inc. co-founder makes his way to a small stage, he passes ads for his own company that feature images of Einstein, Gandhi and Bob Dylan. For the next two hours, the film remains about that unsubtle in its attempts to portray Jobs as a genius for the ages. The movie's awe-struck attitude is even more odd and unconvincing considering that the film actually doesn't shy away from portraying its subject as ruthless, overbearing and generally self-centered.

The audience was a who's who of the technology industry, including venture capitalists John Doerr and Vinod Khosla.
