Apple CEO Tim Cook Talks Steve Jobs With Stephen Colbert

Apple CEO Tim Cook isn't the biggest fan of movies about his old boss, Steve Jobs.

"I think that a lot of people are trying to be opportunistic," he said Tuesday on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. "I hate this -- it’s not a great part of our world."

Since the film "Jobs" was released in 2013, Hollywood has produced two new Jobs-centric films: the currently running documentary "Steve Jobs: Man in the Machine" and the soon-to-be-released "Steve Jobs" starring Michael Fassbender.

The latter has a fan in Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. But Cook hasn't seen either, and took time to praise Jobs, who has been portrayed as a difficult man in movies about his life.

"The Steve I knew was an amazing human being," Jobs said. "He invented things that I think other people could not. He solved problems other people could not."

"He was a joy to work with," he continued. "I love him dearly and I miss him every day."

Cook and Colbert also talked about the new iPhone 6S and its 3D Touch and Live Photo features. The talk show host has welcomed several tech luminaries to his show in its first week, including Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who shared his idea to nuke Mars.

The Apple CEO also shared why he decided to come out publicly as gay last year.

"I wanted to tell everyone my truth," he said. "For many people, it was no revelation. It’s like discovering something on your iPhone it’s always done but you didn’t quite know it."
