Jobs' fruit diet gave Kutcher a health scare

People Post

Ashton Kutcher's latest starring role took a toll on his health.

The 34-year-old actor has revealed he was rushed to hospital before shooting his new movie jOBS about the late entrepreneur Steve Jobs after embarking on a fruit-only diet for the biopic, favoured by the Apple co-founder who died of pancreatic cancer in 2011.

Kutcher told USA Today at the premiere of the movie at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah last week: "First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to like severe issues. I went to the hospital like two days before we started shooting the movie. I was doubled over in pain. My pancreas levels were like completely out of whack. It was really terrifying ... considering everything."

The Two And A Half Men star — who is dating 29-year-old Ted actress Mila Kunis — studied hundreds of hours of footage of Steve for the role and claims he discovered they had a lot in common. Ashton, who is also an established investor in Silicon Valley, said: "We both have a ravenous interest in the tech space. He's a guy that failed and got back on the horse. I think we can all sort of relate to that in some place in our life where we are moving forward with something and we fall down. You have to have the guts to get back up and go again. I think I share that as well." The movie is set to be released in April.

A body to be 'Jalouse' of

After years of walking the Victoria's Secret catwalk, it's common knowledge that Miranda Kerr looks great in lingerie.

But just in case there was any doubt, these photos prove she looks just as good out of it. The Australian model can be seen posing for French fashion title Jalouse in these sultry black and white shots which connote an element of 1960s' playfulness. In one image, the 29-year-old can be seen staring seductively at the camera as she coquettishly crosses her arms together, sandwiching her breasts. The photos were taken by Sebastian Mader, an German photographer who is based in New York and who is renowned for his glossy editorial shoots. In another photo, Miranda, who is mum to two-year old Flynn, her son with Lord Of The Rings actor Orlando Bloom, wears flat shoes with perspex sides and black toe and heel caps, giving her a doll-like apperance. Her hair is piled on top of her head in a chignon, and a slight length of ribbon wrapped around the crown gives the style a playful edge.

50 Cent claims Ross faked drive-by shooting

In a bizarre outburst, 50 Cent has accused his fellow rapper Rick Ross of faking a drive-by shooting that left his Rolls Royce riddled with bullet holes.

After looking at blurry Instagram pictures of the crime scene, 50 Cent tweeted that he thought it looked 'staged'.

"Hahaha fat boy hit the building? Lol it looks staged to me," tweeted 50 Cent. And he continued: "No hole's in da car. Hahaha that boy was spooked."

"I ride like OBAMA level 6 bulit proof bomb proof, you already know. [sic]"

But later photos of the scene clearly showed bullet holes in the tires, bumper and lights of the car, which Ross crashed into an apartment building as he attempted to flee the scene. Ross has been locked in a dispute with 50 Cent since 2009, when Rick hit out at the rapper in his song Mafia Music.

Despite 50 Cent's doubt, police have confirmed that they are treating the shooting as 'an active and ongoing criminal investigation'.

In a statement they revealed that neither Rick nor his girlfriend Shateria L. Moragne-le, who was a passenger in the car, were hurt in the crash.
