“I really don’t pay too much attention to it,” Jeremy admitted to Vanity Fair.

“My mom tells me what they’re saying on Twitter, which is nice,” Jeremy said. “I’ve been acting since I was 18. I was on this show [Shameless] for 11 years that was popular, but I wasn’t getting as much attention then as I am now.”

He continued, “I feel very lucky that everything’s been this gradual because I’ve been able to find my footing already. I feel really bad for a young actor or somebody who just hasn’t had much experience when all of a sudden they break through; it could be more overwhelming in that case.”

Jeremy went on to credit wife Addison Timlin and daughters Ezer, 4, and Dolores, 2, for keeping him grounded.

“I probably wouldn’t have done well if I were single or without children or just younger and dumber,” Jeremy shared. “If you don’t have a foundation outside of your career, that can be a lonely existence.”

Jeremy said that his approach to social media hasn’t changed because all of this new attention he’s getting from fans. He also admitted that he doesn’t “understand” his relationship with social media.

“It’s scary. There were times that I’ve posted pictures of my children on there, and then I felt like, Oh, maybe I shouldn’t do that, but I’m so proud of them, so why wouldn’t I share them?” Jeremy explained.

“I’ve had this back-and-forth, and I’ve landed in a place where I think it should be used mostly for either holding up my friends — and projects that they’re doing — or just promoting the work that I do,” Jeremy added. “Because anything beyond that…I just don’t understand what version of myself I’m supposed to be putting or not putting out there. So, keep it simple.”

Back in 2020, Jeremy read thirst tweets about him!
