Ben Stiller questioned his work-life balance amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 56-year-old star directed the Apple TV+ series ‘Severance’ during the global health crisis, and the experience led him to question his priorities.
Ben told ‘Backstage’: “The show ended up being a challenging shoot because we started it basically at the heart of the pandemic, and the hours were long and then the work-life balance started to get out of balance for me working on the show.
“Then everybody started to look at that, I think, within the pandemic and how many hours you’re spending a day away from your family, taking these risks to work. All these things that everybody’s dealing with in their lives, everybody’s questioned it and really, I think had to take a good look at, ‘well, what’s more important?'”
