The CEO of Apple, Tim Cook joined Stephen Colbert's new Tonight Show for a chat, when Colbert steered the conversation towards the upcoming feature film based on Apple co-founder Steve Jobs - which clearly wasn't a subject the man wanted to discuss.

Confirming that he hasn't seen the new Steve Jobs film, or the 2013 picture which starred Ashton Kutcher, Cook said "I haven't seen them, but the Steve I knew was an amazing human being... I think that a lot of people are trying to be opportunistic, and I hate this; it's not a great part of our world".
