@jtfirstman chatted with WWD about his viral impressions, celebrity fans, and how lockdown set him free.
The TV writer has become a star of quarantine life thanks to his “impressions” series on Instagram — and is having the time of his life. For Firstman, 2020 started with a breakup, a canceled TV show and movie, but now he’s convinced it’s his year.
The celebrity set is not known for an ability to relate to the masses — particularly during the early days of quarantine, as they toughed it out from their mansions — but many famous women have found Firstman’s content relatable, accelerating his platform.
“I mean, honestly this is going to sound so gross, but there are so many. At first, the first month, every time I got a big one, it would be really exciting. And now it’s like, ‘Reese calm down, we don’t have to DM every day. Natalie Portman, let’s chill for a second,’” he deadpans.
