Chris also talked to the Times about reading feminist literature while he dated Jenny and wanting to become a better ally for women. "The hardest thing to reconcile is that just because you have good intentions, doesn’t mean it’s your time to have a voice,” he said.

The actor also said he's moving away from big blockbusters and more toward smaller-budget projects, like Gifted, in which he co-starred with Jenny. “When I think about the times that I’m happiest, it’s not on a movie set,” he said. “I’ve stopped thinking about my trajectory, or my oeuvre, or whatever pretentious word you want to use. I’m just following whatever I feel creatively hungry for … I’m not afraid to take my foot off the gas. If someone said tomorrow, ‘You’re done, you can’t do anything else,’ I’d be OK.”
