Jeremy Allen White reflects on 'terribly low lows' after difficult year
'The Bear' actor Jeremy Allen White has suffered "a lot of terribly low lows" this year.
Jeremy Allen White has suffered "a lot of terribly low lows" this year.
The 32-year-old star has reflected on a difficult period as his life has been thrust into the public eye, with his wife Addison Timlin filing for divorce in May after three years of marriage.
Speaking to December/ January issue of British GQ magazine, he said: "It’s been insane, a lot of high highs, a lot of terribly low lows.”
The 'Bear' actor also reflected on the backlash over his comments on Alexa Demie’s Calvin Klein shoot in August when he commented "wow" underneath a video of her posing in underwear sets for a new campaign.
He has insisted it was meant to be an innocent comment complimenting the shoot.
He revealed he called his publicist at the time, adding: "I was like, 'I just need to shut the f*** up. I just shouldn't say anything'. And she was like, 'Kind of.' "
Jeremy - who has daughters Ezer Billie, four, and Dolores Wild, three, with ex Addison - also recalled a moment he tried to get on board with a Marvel-style movie but his "attitude" cost him the role.
He said: "I had a meeting for a kind of Marvel-y movie, and I had an attitude. I think I played it all wrong.
“‘Tell me about why I should do your movie.' They were like, ‘F*** you, and I was like, ‘Right on.’ ”
He's currently taking a break from Hollywood to focus on himself and be around his daughters.
He explained: "With everything going on in my personal life, I thought, ‘OK, let’s just pump the brakes in general, and maybe you don’t work for a while'.
"I made this choice to not work for the rest of the year and just be with my daughters and just slow it all down.”
Working with Steven Spielberg would have been an exception, although he doesn't think it's particularly likely.
He confessed: “I don’t think he’s going to be knocking.”
Jeremy will be toasted at the annual GQ Men Of The Year Celebration 2023 in association with BOSS in London on November 15.
