Look, guys. Being a father is hard. Dealing with a long distance relationship is hard. Dealing with a stressful work load is hard. Dealing with a job that requires you to access a lot of strong emotions that affect you physically even if you know the emotions aren’t real can be exhausting.
Jensen probably did have a hard time last year dealing with personal issues and radical changes in his lifestyle. I’m not discounting that or saying what he went through wasn’t real or that his emotions/experiences/whatever aren’t valid.
But…I’m not gonna “poor baby” him. You know? It’s called life.
Ha ha. Well, baby Jensen was a lot more awkward with the media and interviews in general. So, who knows if he was nervous about being interviewed, flustered because they were talking about his personal life, or floundering because he was lying. :)
Think about it this way: He has to go to work and pretend to be someone suicidally depressed from the crack of dawn until late into the night. He doesn’t want to half ass it, so he has to give Dean his full attention, on demand, over and over again.
Except he prides himself on not being a method actor…sooo….no?Plus…dealing with actual life and death situations…zero sympathy for him playing pretend about it. Sorry. It’s a perspective thing.
I think they’re talking about how hard it was for him after JJ was born. He commuted back & forth btwn Malibu and Vancouber, only saw his daughter for 24-48 hrs at a time, and didn’t get real “rest” on his breaks from work b/c he was on diaper duty.
Even still. Everybody who is a first time parent has these problems. Except, of course, he got a break from it during the week unlike normal parents. I’m sure it sucked to be apart from her, but he also did get like three full months with her before filming started. And that was a decision that Danneel and Jensen made that could have been avoided—Danneel could have moved to Vancouver for that first year. So, it’s not like they didn’t have options.
Plus at all the cons he looked super tired, and he even confessed to it being really hard (and often frustrating) since being a parent didn’t come with an instruction manual (and he even publicly hinted that D didn’t want sex as much).
I never heard anything like that last point (not saying it’s not true, I just didn’t read it anywhere. Seems like a weird thing to say to fans and I’m not sure that he would?). And I’m sure he was tired. Parenting is hard. But it certainly wasn’t any harder for him than it is for other parents.
I think the post - at least the one I’m thinking off - was referring to it being tough/exhausting for jensen to film dean’s arc in s9
Oh. Is that all? Whatever. He’s fine. I had to do stuff at my job that was actually affecting lives last year. I’m not gonna boo-hoo over a guy who had a hard time playing dress up and pretend and making 20x as much money as me for it.Lol. Perspective, guys.
Lol! omg Too bad he didn’t use his mother’s maiden name as his stage name.
We could cry over Tickles.
Actually, I don’t know what this is in reference to. Are there any circumstances you know like when or who was involved or anything? As far as I know Jensen was fine last year.
Well, I don’t know what you mean by relationship. I think Danneel was the longest relationship he ever had (pre-marriage/engagement).
He dated a few women here and there. He always had a date to award shows or special functions or whatever. I don’t think he ever dated anybody terribly famous or if anyone he took as a date to an award show would be considered his girlfriend.
He did date a playboy model—and she gave this interview where she said kind of odd things like “He’s really good at sex! He gives me really good orgasms!” And I”m like….that’s sounds so fake. Like, she was a beard but she wasn’t an intelligent one so she said stuff like that to emphasize that they “have sex” but in a completely non-normal way…? I don’t know, the interview was weird. Maybe she was stoned or something when she gave it.
As for his friend Ty or any other of his male friends, he never officially dated any of them. It’s not a “fact” or anything.
You really ought to ask a Jensen blog though. I don’t know a lot of detail about his early life.
