Ashton Kutcher went pretty method to become Steve Jobs – even risking his health following the late entrepreneur's crazy diet, which landed him in the hospital. But it was the Apple co-founder's stance on education that really struck a chord.

"I found a speech that he gave and he was speaking to high school kids that were about to graduate. He encouraged these kids to maybe go to Paris and try to write poetry or fall in love with two people ... maybe this standard education wasn't the greatest means to creative solutions," Kutcher, 35, told reporters at a press conference for the film in New York City.

"I wanted to do this film to inspire young people to create the world they live in. I think that was an ethos of Steve Jobs," he said Monday.

 "A diverse set of experiences in life could be the greatest education you could have. I found it to be very surprising that would be his opinion. And I think it was an opinion that he carried throughout his life. I think it's a value."



Jobs is in theaters Aug. 16.
