Jeremy Strong: New York profile a ‘profound breach of trust’

Jeremy Strong had thoughts to share about a late 2021 New Yorker profile that offered insight into his method of acting, telling Vanity Fair at Friday’s Telluride Film Festival that the story felt like a “pretty profound betrayal of trust.”

“The noise and the fog afterwards: I think what ultimately interests me is to feel as free as possible as an actor. Part of this is trying to isolate yourself from everything and what people might be saying or thinking about you. You have to break free from that,” Strong said of the social media discourse that followed the profile published in December 2021. “It was painful. I felt stupid. As an actor, one of the most important secret weapons you can have is the ability to feel stupid.”

Strong continued, “Acting is something that’s hard to talk about without sounding self-serious, but it’s something I take very seriously and have dedicated my life to.”

Many in the acting community came to Strong’s defense following the discourse on the profile, including actress and longtime friend Michelle Williams.

“I think that unfortunately because of what happened with Jeremy Strong, the word ‘method’ has become a vivid word when he tried to describe his process,” Williams said diversity in May. “He takes his work as seriously as his game.”

The ‘Succession’ lead is currently filming the show’s fourth season but is with Telluride this year to promote Armageddon Time, director James Gray’s semi-autobiographical work, in which Strong plays an emotionally intricate version of the filmmaker’s father.

The New Yorker didn’t immediately respond diversity‘s request for comment.
