Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Star Martin Freeman Slams Method Acting, Jim Carrey in Man on the Moon

When it comes to acting, there are many different approaches, and one of the most controversial styles is method acting. Method actors often embody their roles on and off camera/stage which can lead to some unfortunate behavior depending on the character they're playing. An example of method acting is Jim Carrey's performance in Man on the Moon in which he played famous comedian Andy Kaufman. There was even a documentary released titled Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond which chronicled Carrey's journey to becoming Kaufman and the production difficulties his method acting caused. Recently, Black Panther actor Martin Freeman slammed method acting during an episode of the Off Menu podcast (via The Telegraph), calling it a "highly impractical way of working."

Martin Freeman Has No Patience for Method Acting, Calls Out Jim Carrey in ‘Man on the Moon’ Specifically

Method acting is a divisive topic in Hollywood. Sometimes it results in the work of Marlon Brando, and sometimes it ends in Jared Leto sending rats to his costars. Clearly, not everyone is Brando.

Freeman recently took aim at method acting and at Jim Carrey’s “method” performance in Man on the Moon in a very well-articulated, profanity-laden rant against what he calls a “‘selfish, narcissistic” approach to acting.
