Jeremy Allen White has addressed the ‘racy’ comment he left on a picture of Alexa Demie and told how he has had ‘low lows’ after splitting from his wife Addison Timlin.
The Bear star, 32, has spoke about the reaction to a comment he left on a picture of Euphoria actress Alexa posing for a Calvin Klein underwear shoot.
In August, Jeremy had simply commented ‘wow’ underneath a video of Alexa, 32, posing up a storm in an array of underwear sets for the campaign.
Now addressing the post, Jeremy has insisted it was an innocent comment meant to compliment the shoot.
Speaking to British GQ for its December/January issue, Jeremy told how he called his publicist at the time: ‘I was like, “I just need to shut the f**k up. I just shouldn’t say anything,” And she was like, “Kind of”.’
Jeremy, best known for playing Carmen ‘Carmy’ Berzatto in the hit Hulu series The Bear, also admitted things haven’t been all smooth-sailing for him this year.
The actor split from his wife Addison Timlin late last year and has now opened up about how he has experienced some ‘low lows’ throughout 2023.
Reflecting on being propelled into the spotlight after The Bear’s release, he said: ‘It’s been insane, a lot of high highs, a lot of terribly low lows.’
His comments came as he spoke to GQ as part of their Men of the Year celebration 2023 in association with BOSS, in the first of six covers set to be released.
In May, it was reported that Addison had filed for divorce from Jeremy after three years of marriage, listing their separation date as September 2022.
The reason for their split remains unknown, but Jeremy had given his wife a shout out when receiving a Golden Globe just four months earlier.
The couple – who share daughters Ezer Billie, four, and Dolores Wild, three – first met as teenagers on a film set in 2008, and they are believed to have started dating around 2013.
Alison gave an interview at the time revealing she had entered a new romance – but refrained from saying who her suitor was.
‘I’ve got a sweetheart who I will not disclose, but, yes, he’d be the guy. We have a nice foundation from being friends for a long period of time, and then it took a hard right turn into romance,’ she told Harper’s Bazaar.
Jeremy then proposed to Alison in 2019 and they tied the knot in October of that year at the Beverly Hills courthouse – a year after welcoming their first child Ezer.
Addison has had roles on Law & Order, Californication, and most recently, American Horror Story.
White found fame on Shameless before finding even huge success as the star of Hulu’s The Bear.
