This is what the other Steve thinks about the Steve Jobs movie

2015-07-06 15:05

Los Angeles - Steve Wozniak thinks "accuracy is second to entertainment" in the new Steve Jobs movie.

The 64-year-old Apple co-founder - who's played by Seth Rogen in the eagerly-awaited new film - has revealed he's not been asked to see a copy of the script and accepts the film won't be totally accurate to real-life events.

Asked whether he's seen the script, he said: "I do not think that would be appropriate.

"It is the creative work of the producer and writer and actors and director and others ... Accuracy is second to entertainment in a movie like this."

And although Steve doesn't recognise himself in the performance of Seth Rogen, he admitted the general tone of the movie is accurate.

He told Bloomberg: "I don't talk that way. I would never accuse the graphical interface of being stolen. I never made comments to the effect that I had credit (genius) taken from me.

"The lines I heard spoken were not things I would say but carried the right message, at least partly. I felt a lot of the real Jobs in the trailer, although a bit exaggerated."

The Danny Boyle-directed Steve Jobs is set for release in October 2015.
