Jonathan Majors has been accused of taking Method’s acting to the extreme.
The ‘Creed III’ actor, who was arrested March 25 on charges of assaulting, strangling and molesting a romantic partner, is now accused of acting ‘violently’ on the set of ‘Magazine Dreams’ and abusing members of the “Devotion” crew. ”
A Rolling stonethe investigative report found that Majors was “physically intimidating” a member of the “Devotion” crew by yelling at them. In the film, Majors plays the United States Navy’s first black aviator, Jesse Brown.
For the Sundance film ‘Magazine Dreams’, the producers reportedly warned production members to stay away from Majors due to his ‘method acting’ techniques.
“I’ve heard of several Method actors and their behavior, but none of them are violent or rude to their crew,” said a production source, noting that Majors was “completely disrespectful and quite violent towards everyone and the crew. members were afraid of “getting hurt”.
Majors attorney Dustin Pusch released a statement to IndieWire in response to the further allegations.
“Jonathan Majors vehemently denies Rolling Stone’s false allegations that he physically, verbally or emotionally abused anyone, let alone his previous romantic partners…Push said. “Everyone who has worked with Mr. Majors knows who employs an engaging Method acting style, and while it can sometimes be misunderstood as rudeness, those who know Mr. Majors and work in the industry have attested to his dedication to his craft as well as his kindness.
Several other women in Rolling Stone’s report who were previously romantically involved with Majors said he enlisted “emotional torture” and allegedly “filled with rage” to the point where he needed to “hit something or punch something.”
For the March 2023 arrest, Majors’ criminal defense attorney Priya Chaudhry said at the time: “All evidence shows that Mr. Majors is entirely innocent and did not assault her in any way. Unfortunately, this incident occurred because this woman was going through an emotional crisis, for which she was taken to the hospital yesterday. The NYPD is required to make an arrest in these situations, and that is the only reason Mr. Majors was arrested. We expect these charges to be dropped soon.”
Majors’ accuser was granted a restraining order. The ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ actor, whose Kang the Conqueror character was the pivotal point of Marvel’s next phase, has been dropped by his manager and PR teams as of April 2023.
