Jeremy Strong shared his mind about his 2021 New Yorker profile, saying it was a “profound betrayal.” The “Succession” famous person addressed the profile and the following discourse with Vanity Fair’s David Canfield in an article posted Friday. The profile, in which Strong mentioned his approach to method acting, prompted several of his fellow actors to protect him publicly. “Yeah. What do I say about it?” Strong, 43, said Vanity Fair. “It was something that, for me, felt like a quite profound betrayal of trust.”
Strong continued that the profile “maybe ultimately stated extra about the person writing it and their angle, that is a legitimate angle than it did about who I experience I am and what I’m about. “
He then mentioned his reaction to the discourse that ensued.
“The noise and the fog after it: I suppose it is something that, I guess, what I care about ultimately is making an attempt to experience as free as possible as an actor. Part of that is trying to insulate yourself from all of that, and what humans would possibly say about you or consider you. You should lose yourself from that,” Strong stated.
He added: “It was hurting. I felt folly. As an actor, one of the most important mystery weapons that you could have is the ability to tolerate feeling foolish.”
Representatives for The New Yorker did not immediately reply to Insider’s request for comment.
The New Yorker profile implied that Strong’s approach to acting could reason tension on set with his costars. Afterward, some of Strong’s fellow actors, together with Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway, got here to Strong’s defense.
“I have recognised Jeremy Strong for 20yrs & worked with him on 2 films. He is an adorable person. Very inspiring & enthusiastic about his work,” Chastain tweeted. Chastain tweeted. “The profile that got here out on him was incredibly one sided. Don’t agree with everything you read folks. Snark sells but maybe it’s time we move past it.”
Hathaway shared an Instagram post with a image of Strong keeping an Emmy Award.
“As the weekends, I would really like to send some love to Jeremy Strong who I’m fortunate enough to have worked with two times and who I am proud to consider a friend,” she wrote. “I deeply value his characteristics of thoughtfulness, sincerity, authenticity, sweetness, depth, kindness, generosity, in addition to his effective intelligence and extraordinary sensitivity.”
” Strong’s costar Justine Lupe said the profile confirmed Strong’s “relentless commitment.”
