Here we see Jennifer Aniston with some unidentified marks on her back. Some softball websites and magazines are calling them harmless “cupping” marks, however, some fans are becoming increasingly concerned due to the fact the marks are also a sign someone is desperately trying to fight off a serious illness. Think, Andy Kaufman.. Or even, Steve Jobs.. Enough said.. Many Hollywood actors and the elite in general seek out the help of radical alternative medicine when facing a serious illness. Let’s hope this is NOT the case with Aniston!
In preparation for playing Steve Jobs, Ashton Kutcher mirrored the Apple chief’s all-fruit diet, a method acting technique that landed the actor in the hospital.
“First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to like severe issues,” Kutcher said following the jOBS screening at Sundance. “I was like doubled over in pain.”
Kutcher was admitted to a hospital two days before shooting was scheduled to begin with “pancreas problems.”
Steve Jobs dies in October 2011 after battling pancreatic cancer.
“My pancreas levels were completely out of whack,” Kutcher recalled. “It was really terrifying … considering everything.”
jOBS opened to less-than steller reviews at Sundance.
Ashton Kutcher’ jOBS, the biopic of Apple chief Steve Jobs closed Sundance to less-than rave reviews. Here’s a sample.
Ashton is also not bad in his Nikon commercials, but great actor he is not. And so “jOBS” closes the 2013 Sundance Film Festival to very lukewarm reviews. Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, IndieWire–all give it middling notices, pointing out that it’s a paint-by-numbers effort. And Ashton is cited in Variety as one of its least appealing ingredients. showbiz411.
Variety: “…precisely that familiarity with Jobs, who reached iconic status in the years before his death, that often undercuts the effectiveness of Kutcher’s carefully judged performance. Despite the superficial physical resemblance between actor and subject, enhanced by thick glasses, longish hair and an impressive attempt at vocal mimickry on Kutcher’s part, the illusion never fully seizes hold.”
Hollywood Reporter: “passably entertaining” and “somewhat like a two-hour commercial covering the first 20 tumultuous years of Apple’s development…”
Well this kind of isucks because I was really looking forward to seeing this movie.

Today, Apple’s board of directors granted Steve Jobs a medical leave of absence so he can focus on his health.
Jobs sent out an email to all Apple employees and said that he is still going to be CEO of Apple and he will still be involved in “major strategic decisions” for the company, but has asked Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple’s day-to-day operations.
Jobs stated, “I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011. I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can.”
2 years ago, Jobs went on medical leave for a liver transplant. In 2004, Jobs had surgery to remove pancreatic cancer. People are worried that cancer has come back to him.
It is unknown how long Jobs will be on medical leave. This story is developing…
