Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has claimed "accuracy is second to entertainment" in the new 'Steve Jobs' movie
Steve Wozniak thinks "accuracy is second to entertainment" in the new 'Steve Jobs' movie.
The 64-year-old Apple co-founder - who's played by Seth Rogen in the eagerly-awaited new film - has revealed he's not asked to see a copy of the script and accepts the film won't be totally accurate to real-life events.
Asked whether he's seen the script, he said: "I do not think that would be appropriate.
"It is the creative work of the producer and writer and actors and director and others ... Accuracy is second to entertainment in a movie like this."
And although Steve doesn't recognise himself in the performance of Seth Rogen, he admitted the general tone of the movie is accurate.
He told Bloomberg: "I don't talk that way. I would never accuse the graphical interface of being stolen. I never made comments to the effect that I had credit (genius) taken from me.
"The lines I heard spoken were not things I would say but carried the right message, at least partly. I felt a lot of the real Jobs in the trailer, although a bit exaggerated."
The Danny Boyle-directed 'Steve Jobs' is set for release in October 2015.
