Aaron Sorkin Says Steve Jobs' Widow Told Leonardo DiCaprio & Christian Bale Not to Do the Movie

Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels get serious for the lastest cover of The Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s what the Steve Jobs cast had to share with the mag:

Michael on playing Jobs: “I was nervous. I was very nervous. It was going to be a big challenge, the volume of words alone. I was like, ‘I don’t look anything like him.’ And Danny [Boyle] was like, ‘That’s not what we’re going for. I’m looking for someone who can capture an essence.’”

Kate on her role: “My makeup artist] said, ‘God, the script is really so fantastic.’ She described the nature of the film and how it’s constructed in three acts. And I finally said, ‘What’s the girl’s part?’”

Writer Aaron Sorkin on Steve’s widow Laurene Powell’s objections: “Since the very beginning, Laurene Jobs has been trying to kill this movie, OK? Laurene Jobs called Leo DiCaprio and said, ‘Don’t do it.’ Laurene Jobs called Christian Bale and said, ‘Don’t [do it].’”

Aaron Sorkin Calls Sony Hack Worse Than Nude Photo Leak

Aaron Sorkin is speaking out again on the Sony hack and he is now calling it “worse by magnitudes” than the leak of celebrity nude photos this summer.

“I thought we all did a really good job of preemptively telling the press that if you publish these things, you’re being sleazy,” the 53-year-old writer/producer said on The Today Show on Tuesday (December 16). “This is the exact same situation, only worse by magnitudes because in this case the hackers stole this material and are threatening the lives of children.”

“The thing we should be taking seriously first and foremost is privacy and dignity,” Aaron added, “and the fact that once again hackers who have threatened violence because the studio just wants to exercise the same First Amendment right that everybody else does, studio just wants to release a movie, have stolen this material and now the press is selling it out of the back of a truck.”

Aaron also wrote an op-ed piece for the New York Times condemning media for publishing the stolen documents.
