As the premiere of “Silicon Valley” got ready to start in San Francisco, Zach Woods got out of his seat and left the room.
It wasn’t just a poorly timed bathroom break. Despite starring in the hit HBO show as Jared, Woods says that he’s never watched the program.
In a Q&A session after the premiere, Woods said that he doesn’t watch to avoid being too critical of himself. He’s seen himself in some clips when the actors have to revoice a line, and he then starts questioning everything about his acting.
“My first thought is always like, ‘Oh, my god, my face is so weird. And I can’t believe that I’m employable on television.’ And then I see things about the acting that I don’t like, and then I start fixing problems that may or may not even be there,” Woods said.
To dodge making those unnecessary tweaks, Woods just doesn’t watch the show.
“As a way of protecting myself from my own interference, I don’t watch it,” Woods said.
