NEW YORK – After embodying Steve Jobs in his new movie, Ashton Kutcher came to admire how the Apple Computer cofounder was able to balance his public and personal lives.

“He was better at it than I am,” the 35-year old actor said Wednesday at the New York premiere of his new film, “JOBS,” which opens Aug. 16.

“This business has a propensity to force you to be more public than you probably want to be,” Kutcher said of show business.

Kutcher saw his share of tabloid headlines after his breakup with actress Demi Moore. His current relationship with actress Mila Kunis has also been widely publicized.

“I think I’ve learned how to restrict that public image, and over the years I’m starting to understand the value of privacy,” he said.

In the film, Kutcher plays the techno prophet who, with Steve Wozniak, ignited the personal computer revolution. Jobs died two years ago at age 56 after a battle with cancer.

Kutcher said he found there was a “Steve that Steve didn’t always want to show.”

“The guy with the glasses and the jeans and black turtleneck and the New Balance shoes giving a keynote speech to present some new, great, next, amazing product … he wasn’t always that guy. He actually evolved into that person in the same way that I’m not the same today at 35 as I was at 25,” Kutcher said.

Charlie Rose finds time for new show

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – As if Charlie Rose didn’t have enough jobs, he’s adding a fourth one.

The 71-year-old talk show host will oversee “Charlie Rose: The Week,” a 30-minute weekly program looking back at events in politics, business, sports, culture and the arts that will air on PBS.

In addition to the new show, Rose hosts his eponymous interview program on PBS, and on CBS he co-anchors “CBS This Morning” five days a week and contributes to “60 Minutes.”

Rose told a Television Critics Association session Wednesday that he sleeps about six hours a night, and takes two daily naps because he believes it makes him more efficient. He rises at 5 a.m.

He says he started his napping habit back in law school.
