Steve Jobs's Childhood Home Becomes a Historic Site

Originally posted 10/29/2013 12:50PM

The Silicon Valley home where Apple co-founder Steve Jobs grew up and built some of his first computers is now on the city's list of historic properties.

The historical commission in the city of Los Altos voted unanimously for the historic designation on Monday night, the Palo Alto Daily News reported. Any proposed renovations to the modest, ranch-style home now require additional review.

The home, where Jobs and his foster parents moved in 1968, is currently owned by Patricia Jobs, Steve Jobs's sister. The commission didn't need her permission for the designation, although she could appeal it to the city council.

Josh Gad is slimming down!

The Jobs actor, 32, has lost at least 30 lbs. for upcoming movie roles by working with a nutritionist and cutting down "from about 18 meals a day to about five," he told PEOPLE at the L.A. premiere of the Steve Jobs biopic, which also stars Ashton Kutcher and hits theaters Friday.

So what's on the menu of his new meal plan?

Gad, who plays Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in Jobs, says he eats seven egg whites with avocado on top and a grapefruit for breakfast. Two hours later, he drinks a protein shake and then will snack on some almonds, followed by a lunch of 7 oz. of turkey on a salad with nonfat dressing. Before a dinner of salmon and veggies, he drinks another protein shake.

What About Steve Jobs Surprised Ashton Kutcher Most?

Ashton Kutcher on Skipping College and Inspiring Kids as Steve Jobs

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.

For Ashton Kutcher preparing to play Apple co-founder Steve Jobs meant chowing down on – fittingly – apples.

The jOBS star, 34, followed a fruit-only diet to get into character as the late visionary for the biopic, which premiered Friday night at the Sundance Film Festival.

But channeling Jobs's reported diet took a toll on Kutcher's health: Two days before filming began, he was admitted to a hospital for pancreas problems, according to USA Today.

Ashton Kutcher's much-hyped movie jOBS premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, and the star was on hand – minus girlfriend Mila Kunis – for all the festivities.

Kutcher was one of the first to arrive at the official after party, hosted by Nur Khan Presents NK on Main Street for the cast and filmmakers and sponsored by Red Touch Media.

Kutcher was captivated by a floor-to-ceiling portrait of late Apple visionary Steve Jobs, whom Kutcher portrays in the film. Guests were quick to snap a photo of the actor admiring the subject of his role.

The new biopic of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher in a nerdy beard premiered at the Sundance Film Festival Friday to an early round of mixed reviews.

The Two and a Half Men star won respectful praise for tackling such an iconic role in jOBS, but indications are that this apparently adulatory portrait of the techno-genius is not The Social Network for computers.

Ashton Kutcher is due to play Steve Jobs in the indie movie Jobs, which is scheduled to start shooting in May, says the Hollywood Reporter.

The trade paper – noting that the Two and a Half Men star bears an uncanny resemblance to the Apple co-founder, who died in October – says the movie, to be directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) from a script by Matt Whiteley, will trace Jobs's rise from Northern California hippie to computer innovator.

Another movie about Jobs is also in the pipeline, based on Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography and being prepared by Sony Pictures, though this biopic starring Kutcher is looking to be first out of the gate.

Grammy Awards Pay Tribute to Whitney Houston, Etta James

Originally posted 02/13/2012 02:30PM



On a night intended to pay homage to the biggest names in music today, two of the Grammy Awards's biggest honorees were the megastars no longer in the room: Etta James and Whitney Houston.

After host LL Cool J opened Sunday's ceremony with a prayer for Houston, announcing "a death in our family," the audience rose in a standing ovation.

"When a truly great artist leaves us, their legacy lives on," Alicia Keys later told the stars gathered at Los Angeles's Staples Center, before joining Bonnie Raitt in a graceful cover of James's "A Sunday Kind of Love."

But the most moving tribute came from Jennifer Hudson, whose elegant but understated rendition of Houston's "I Will Always Love You" brought audience members to their feet once again.
