Jessica Chastain calls interview with successor star Jeremy Strong ‘incredibly simple’

Jessica Chastain debuted to support Heir star Strong Jeremy, right after a new personal page attracted mixed reactions from fans online.

Written by journalist Michael Schulman for New Yorkers, titled feature “Above Heir, Jeremy Strong doesn’t understand the joke” published on December 6.

It includes quotes from Strong’s co-stars, including Brian Cox and Kieran Culkin, both of whom commented on Strong’s sober approach to his performance. The article painted a portrait of an intense, committed actor to his craft who took on every role he took on – including that of Kendall Roy, son of media mogul Logan Roy . Heir – as “as serious as one’s own life.”

“The results Jeremy gets has always been pretty big,” Cox, who plays Logan Roy, said in the interview. “I’m just worried about what he’s doing to himself. I worry about the crises he has to go through to prepare.”

He added: “Actors are hilarious creatures. I’ve worked with intense actors before. It’s a particular American disease, I think, this inability to isolate itself while you’re working. “

Culkin said, “After the first season, he said something to me like, ‘I worry that people might think the show is a comedy.’ And I said, ‘I think the show To be comedy film.’ He thought I was joking.”

Responding to the implication that Strong could be “hard to work with,” Chastain defended him on Twitter.

“I have known Jeremy Strong for 20 years and have worked with him on two films. He is a lovely person. Very inspirational and passionate about his work,” said the actor, who co-starred with Strong in Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty and Aaron Sorkin’s Molly’s Game, tweeted.

“His profile is very one-sided,” she continued, adding, “Don’t believe everything you read.”

“Snark sells, but maybe it’s time we get over it.”

Spokesperson for New Yorkers declined to comment on Chastain’s tweet.

Not all social media users agree with Chastain reading Shulman’s work.

In response to her tweet, Diversity Editor-in-Chief Kate Arthur wrote: “It’s an incredibly nuanced portrait of him. I’m sure you won’t see a response to your tweet – and I’m jealous that you probably never do! – but calling it “snark” seems like a real misnomer. “

Editor Rosemary Donahue tweeted: “I think Jeremy Strong probably read his bio and was like ‘no notes’.”

Novelist Shinan Govani said: “I think it is complex and psychologically thorough (the good, the bad and the ugly)….and one of the few celebrity profiles that is more than just a biography.” .

Meanwhile, Heir Fans rallied behind the actor, praising his eccentric, honest and persistent personality, with one admitting that the interview made them like Strong more than before.

The Heir The finale airs this weekend.
