Well, this is inneresting!

Steve Jobs — the bio-pic about the late Apple founder — opens Friday and is already receiving some pretty favorable early reviews.

But this film almost didn't happen thanks in part to Laurene Powell Jobs, Steve Jobs' widow.

Who did the better job of playing Jobs?

Although Michael Fassbender's newest flick Steve Jobs has yet to hit theatres, it has already received glowing reviews from critics alike.

In fact, many publications are praising the 38-year-old for his depiction of the technology icon.

While the Danny Boyle-directed film is looking like a surefire hit, it wasn't the first movie in recent years to portray the Apple CEO.

In case you forgot, there was another Steve Jobs biopic in 2013 starring Ashton Kutcher that was widely panned by the media.

On Sunday, at the New York Film Festival, Fassbender couldn't help but take a jab at the Two and a Half Men star's flop!

When asked how he prepared for the role, the German-Irish hunk sarcastically responded:

"I studied Ashton Kutcher."

Total burn!

Regardless of who played the computer legend better, there is one thing we can all agree on…

Michael and Ashton are two very foxy men!

​Maze Runner Wins The Race & Topples Johnny Depp's Black Mass At The Box Office!

Sorry, Johnny!

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Black Mass, Everest, Sicario and Captive all opened this weekend with all kinds of results.

The big winner this weekend was somewhat surprisingly the Dylan O'Brien-starring Maze Runner sequel that took the cake with $30.3 million.

Johnny Depp's Black Mass followed with $23.3 mil — though it did have the disadvantage of being rated R.

Even though Maze Runner did well, its number fell a bit short of analysts' projection for its three-day total.

It might also be seen as a slight disappointment as the original — which opened last year around the same date — took in $32.5. While this is consistent with last year's numbers, sequels generally look to have a bigger opening weekend as they hope to gain some popularity once they hit home video.

Even though Johnny Depp's flick didn't land in the top spot, it did mark the turning point for

The 38-year-old hunk and the 26-year-old actress met on the set of The Light Between Oceans and were last photographed in May at the Formula One Grand Prix in Monaco.

Miz Vikander most recently starred with Eddie Redmayne in the highly anticipated flick The Danish Girl while the German-born thespian played the title role in the soon-to-be released Steve Jobs.

In case you didn't know, Fassbender has had a history of dating his screen partners!
