Anne Hathaway Defends “Friend” Jeremy Strong Following Criticism

He concluded his statement by congratulating the entire cast of Succession who has “crushed this season” and subtly took his stand against the New Yorker piece, adding: “(for the record, work is where the story begins and ends for me.)”

Hathaway joins a growing roster of A-listers, including Jessica Chastain, Aaron Sorkinand Strong’s Succession co-star Sarah Snook—Who have shared their thoughts on her profound acting process since her profile was released on December 5th.

Chastain, who worked with Strong on Molly’s game And Zero Dark Thirty, was the first to express her support for the “adorable” actor, calling the article “incredibly one-sided“on Twitter.

“I’ve known Jeremy Strong for 20 years and I’ve worked with him on 2 movies. He’s a lovely person. Very inspiring and passionate about his work. The profile that came out of him was incredibly one-sided. Don’t believe everything you read people.” , she wrote. “Snark sells but maybe it’s time to go further.”

She was later joined by writer Aaron Sorkin, whose thoughts she shared online on his behalf. In the long post, Sorkin, who worked alongside Strong on Molly’s game And The Chicago test 7, claimed the responses from his email interview with the reporter Michael Schulman, which were included in the article, were used to construct a “distorted image of Jeremy asking us to roll our eyes at his acting process”.

“Jeremy Strong is a great actor and a great member of the company. There isn’t a writer, director or producer on Earth who wouldn’t take the opportunity to hire him,” explained the screenwriter. Sorkin also shared in full his alleged answers to Schulman’s questions.

Strong’s onscreen sister Sarah Snook also vouched for him. On December 8, the actress, who plays brother Shiv Roy in Succession, said Variety Awards Circuit podcast that “Jeremy is awesome”.

“He is a very unique and unique person and actor and works in a different way than other people,” he said. “We all work in different ways. We all have a different process.”
