SVChronicle Exclusive: Interview With Steve Wozniak On ‘Jobs’
Here is an excerpt of an exclusive SVChronicle interview with Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak, on the recently released Ashton Kutcher movie ‘Jobs’.
FV: Hello, Steve!
Woz: Exactly. That is what they should have called the movie. Why focus on him when I did all the hard work?
FV: Did you watch the movie? What did you like about it?
Woz: Of course I did. I liked the fact that it ended in 128 minutes. BTW, I have written a book called Woz but nobody has shown interest in making a movie out of it.
FV: Would Jobs have liked the movie, you think?
Woz: I can’t say that. But I will say this: He was not a genius when I was there at Apple. When he came back, he had become a genius. When we got Apple Cake for Christmas, he wanted to eat it alone. I took my piece and gave it to everyone.
FV: Do you think this would be the definitive movie on Jobs?
Woz: I think we should wait for the Sorkin movie. I have co-written the script on that one. I will let everyone know that Jobs did not know anything until I was there. But he is a visionary and a genius and I am thankful to him.
FV: Why would you be thankful to him if he did not know anything?
Woz: I mean he is a visionary. But he was not like that until he came back from the Himalayas.
FV: Thanks for your time Steve.
Woz: My pleasure. Watch the movie that I have co-written. I am not saying that this kutcher movie is useless, I am just saying that it is of no use.
