Los Angeles: Actor Ashton Kutcher says he knew he would face some kind of criticism when he decided to work in "Jobs", a biopic based on Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

Kutcher plays the lead role in the movie, which was tagged as inaccurate after it was premiered last week at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

"He`s a guy who failed and got back on the horse. I think we can all relate to that," quoted Kutcher as saying.

He added: "It was like throwing myself into massive amounts of criticism because somebody`s going to go, `Well, it wasn`t exactly accurate`."

The movie also stars actor Josh Gad, who plays Jobs`s partner Steve Wozniak in the movie.

Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, the movie is set to release April 19.
