Jeremy Allen White, renowned for his roles in 'Shameless' and 'The Bear', has experienced a whirlwind of emotions this year.

In an interview with British GQ, White reflects on the challenges of dealing with newfound fame and personal turmoil during a divorce.

He describes his year as both 'insane' with high highs and 'terribly low lows.'

White's personal life took a sharp turn when his wife, actress Addison Timlin, filed for divorce in May.

Despite the split, the former couple has maintained an amicable relationship for the sake of their two young daughters.

In a candid conversation, White shares that it has taken him a year to find stability after being 'rocked the hardest' by the initial phase of the divorce.

As part of the custody agreement, White must undergo routine alcohol testing to ensure his sobriety.

The agreement stipulates that non-compliance with testing would result in the termination of the custody arrangement.

Aside from navigating the divorce, White has also had to confront the challenges of newfound fame.

Thanks to his role in 'The Bear', the actor has become a target for paparazzi attention.

White expresses his dismay at the invasion of privacy and the constant presence of photographers in his life.

To deter intrusive photography, he resorts to wearing the same outfit every day, a tactic employed by other actors.

Although this strategy has somewhat limited paparazzi interference, the actor admits the experience has been far from enjoyable.

In a revealing moment, White recounts an incident where he commented on a model's Instagram photo and faced backlash for his words being misinterpreted.

The actor admits his mistake in engaging and vows to be more cautious in the future.

And even in professional settings, White acknowledges missteps, recalling a meeting for a potential superhero movie where his demeanor came across as confrontational.

Despite the setbacks, he maintains his authenticity and tries to find lessons in these experiences.

Through it all, Jeremy Allen White's resilience and undeniable talent continue to shine, making him an actor to watch in Hollywood's ever-evolving landscape.
