jeremy strong he’s not holding back his true thoughts about that profile.
the Succession the star finally headed to a 2021 New Yorker interview that went viral after his Hollywood friends and colleagues criticized how he was portrayed.
“What do I say about it?” strong said vanity fair in an interview published on September 2. “It was something that, to me, felt like a pretty profound betrayal of trust.”
The December article described Strong’s supposedly intense method of acting, with his co-star Brian Cox saying, “I only care about what he does to himself. I care about the crises he puts himself through to prepare himself.”
Now, Strong says, the profile “maybe ultimately said more about the person writing it and their perspective, which is a valid perspective, than it did about who I feel like I am and what it’s about.”
As for the general reaction to the article? “The noise and the fog afterwards: I think it’s something that, I guess, what matters to me ultimately is trying to feel as free as possible as an actor,” said the actor behind Kendall Roy. “Part of that is trying to isolate yourself from all of that, and what people might say or think about you. You have to break free of that.”
