Jared Leto has revealed he told Adam Neumann, the real-life subject of his character in WeCrashed, not to watch the forthcoming miniseries.
The new Apple TV+ show – starring Leto and Anne Hathaway as real-life couple Adam and Rebekah Neumann – follows the couple’s relationship alongside the success and downfall of their global co-working brand, WeWork.
In a recent interview with Variety, Leto said he hasn’t watched his new series and advised the real-life Neumann not to watch it either. “I don’t even watch it, so why would I tell [Neumann] to watch it?”
In preparation for the role, Leto was able to meet with the real-life businessman, who he remembers as being charming.
