Ben Stiller is not losing his sense of humor about the situation. During the course of the epidemic, the director of Severance reconciled with his wife, Christine Taylor, and is overjoyed with how his life has evolved as a result.
Stiller told ET’s Denny Directo, “I’m so happy where I’m at in my life and the fact that we’re even able to be here together doing this right now, all those things are now not taken for granted.” Stiller is referring to the fact that they are able to be here together doing this right now. “The entirety of the most recent few years have been a moment for everyone to kind of get in touch with a lot of it,” the speaker said.
After 17 years of marriage, Stiller, 56, and Taylor, 50, made public their decision to separate in 2017, but neither one of them formally initiated the divorce process. Stiller relocated back into the family house while the COVID-19 pandemic was in full swing in order to be close to their two adolescents.
Stiller experienced some enjoyment as a result of the pandemic; nevertheless, in the year 2020, he also experienced the loss of his father, Jerry Stiller. At the beginning of this month, Estelle Harris, who played Jerry Seinfeld’s on-screen wife, passed away at the age of 93. Stiller discussed the relationship between his father and his Seinfeld co-star in an interview with ET.
“I was simply a fan, and the chemistry she had with my dad was fantastic,” he added. “I really wish I could have met her.” “I am aware that he loved her very deeply, and the way in which the two of them interacted with one another as — you know. Throughout his life, my grandfather married twice.
He was quite effective in his collaborations with both Estelle and my mother, Anne Meara, whom he had at the time. Therefore, it is a pretty significant loss, and she was just very unique and special humorous. She brought so much happiness to a great number of people.
Fans of the Apple TV+ series Severance will find that Stiller’s appearance will not only bring them joy, but also a lot of questions. The program, which is executive produced by Ben Stiller and stars Adam Scott, just finished airing the first season of its run recently. Stiller, who remained in the role of director, has expressed how much he has enjoyed seeing how people have responded.
He stated, “I’ve been so excited to communicate with the fans, especially on Twitter.” “I’ve been so excited to engage with the fans.” “How they’ve responded to the show while it’s happening in real-time.” I’ve never really had the experience of doing something as part of a series before, where people are so invested in what’s going to happen and have a lot of questions about where it’s going to go.
As he continued, he said, “Just that level of attention to detail that the audience has, since we put a lot of depth into the world and knowing that audiences are incredibly clever.” It’s wonderful to get that sense of familiarity again.”
Regarding season 2, viewers may get a glimpse of Stiller acting in front of the camera at some point. He expressed that he thought it would be exciting to be a part of this world. “This is something that occupies a lot of our thoughts. The majority of today was spent in conversation centred on the topic. The show’s creator, Dan Erickson, has a number of ideas that have been thrown out there in response to questions that were asked in the first season but that we didn’t completely answer.
Stiller’s high hopes for season 2 are instilling a sense of pride in the audience. “I think it’s going to be the sort of programme where you feel fulfilled enough that you get answers to things that you’ve been thinking about for a long time,” he added. “I think it’s going to hopefully be the kind of show that’s going to be like that.”
“I want it to be something where people really feel as though they’re in a world while they’re moving through it. I want it to be immersive. They do not have the impression that items are being flung at them for no apparent cause.
On Apple TV+, viewers can now watch the first season of the drama series Severance.
