Jeremy Strong ‘New Yorker’ Profile Gathers More Celebrity Criticism While Praising ‘Succession’ Star’s ‘Sensitivity’

Stars line up for ‘Succession’ actor Jeremy Strong, as they continue to garner support and praise for him in the wake of Michael Schulman’s ‘tarnished: The New Yorker’ dossier, in which celebrities like Anne Hathaway and Adam McKay launched an Emmy and SAG Award – winning for his ‘strong intelligence and extraordinary sensitivity’.

Strong was the subject of a lengthy profile reveal in The New Yorker earlier this week that delved into his autobiography and career… and also elicited highly divided and divided reactions from Strong’s fans and friends, with some even declaring the profile a hit piece.

Brian Cox, who plays Strong’s father on the HBO series, appeared on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” and was asked his thoughts on what was said in The New Yorker article.

“The thing about Jeremy’s approach is that it works in terms of what comes out of the other end,” Cox told Myers. “He’s an extraordinary dad. He’s a unique individual. But he’s obsessed with work. And I worry about what he’s doing to him, because if you can’t separate yourself — because you’re dealing with all this stuff every day. You can’t live in it. In the end, you become exhausted. “.

Follow Cox, using Daniel Day-Lewis as an example. “Daniel Day-Lewis is exhausted at the age of 55 and has decided to retire because of [he] Cox said. “It’s very spent. And I worry about it. But the result – what everyone says about Jeremy – the result has always been fantastic, excellent.”

A New Yorker spokesperson said of criticism of the story, “This is an accurate and versatile portrait of a very dedicated actor. It inspired a range of reactions from people, including many who said they liked Jeremy Strong’s art more after reading the article.”

Actress Anne Hathaway posted a photo on Instagram on Saturday of Strong holding the “Succession” Emmy with the caption, “By the end of the week, I’d like to send some love to Jeremy Strong who I’m lucky enough to have worked with twice and who I’m proud to look at Friend. I highly appreciate his qualities of thoughtfulness, sincerity, originality, sweetness, depth, kindness, and generosity, as well as his strong intelligence and extraordinary sensitivity.”

“[Jeremy] He is an incredibly talented and innovative artist who is fully engaged and committed to the set, as well as someone who is passionate and open about life,” Hathaway continued. “I find all of these things inspiring. (Oh, it’s fun.) Anyway, he and the entire crew smashed this season of success (for the record, the action is where the story begins and ends for me.) Congratulations to all of them and completing the ending! “

Writer and director Adam McKay benefited from an in-depth response from Aaron Sorkin, who posted via Jessica Chastain’s Twitter account a lengthy response to Schulman’s story in which he accuses Schulman of painting “a distorted picture of Jeremy that asks us to close our eyes at him in the acting process.”

McKay tweeted on Saturday, “Couldn’t agree more. Jeremy is not just a beautiful guy but a brilliant actor who was cast in ‘Succession’ precisely because of his passion that the New Yorker writer mocks.”

Chastain herself also jumped to Strong’s defense, tweeting, “I’ve known Jeremy Strong for 20 years and worked with him on two films. He’s a likable person. So inspiring and passionate about his work. The profile he featured was incredibly one-sided. Don’t believe everything you read.” Folks. Snark is selling out but maybe it’s time we got over it.”

Actor Vincent Donofrio had nothing but positive things to say about Strong.

“Jeremy Strong has become one of our best actors,” he wrote tweetss. “The process of creating art can be very subtle. Sometimes cruel. I think serving the story is the job of the actors. Art, the process of achieving it. It is always evolving. We must respect it. There is no harm in this process.”

The final episode of Season 3 of “Succession” will air Sunday night on HBO and HBO Max. Here is a summary of the last episode.
