Jenna Ortega and Martin Freeman's Controversial Collaboration Breaks the Internet!

In a bold move that has left fans reeling, Jenna Ortega has stepped into her latest role in Miller’s Girl, starring alongside none other than Martin Freeman! The dark comedy drama, brought to life by the visionary writer-director Jade Halley Bartlett, sees Ortega portraying the complex character of Cairo Sweet, an 18-year-old student, opposite Freeman's portrayal of the enigmatic Jonathan Miller, a married English professor.

The plot thickens as the duo embarks on a rollercoaster journey of tangled emotions and inappropriate entanglements sparked by a simple creative writing assignment. Despite the stark age gap - Ortega at 21 and Freeman at 52, a staggering 31-year difference - the storyline has ignited a fiery storm of reactions among fans.

Taking to social media platforms, Ortega's dedicated following has expressed a myriad of emotions, ranging from shock to outright disbelief. One tweet exclaimed, "Jenna Ortega and Martin Freeman… I’m uncomfortable," echoing the sentiments of many, while another user added, "MARTIN FREEMAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO JENNA ORTEGA," encapsulating the shared disbelief at the unexpected pairing.

But the controversy doesn't stop there. A third commenter expressed disdain, remarking, "This Jenna Ortega/Martin Freeman film is so gross! So, so, so, so gross!" Others diverted their concerns from the age gap to Freeman's involvement in intimate scenes, articulating discomfort with the notion of Freeman engaging in such acts, especially with someone significantly younger. One comment read, "I don’t like to think of Freeman having sex with anyone, let alone someone less than half his age. I imagine he is smooth inside his pants, like a Ken doll."

Ortega's rise to stardom has been nothing short of meteoric since her standout role in Netflix's Addams Family spin-off Wednesday in 2022. The series garnered massive attention, amassing a staggering 341.2 million hours of streaming in its debut week, shattering records previously held by hit series like Stranger Things. Despite her commendable performance, critics noted the series' inclination towards certain clichés, likening it to a Gen-Z rendition of the Addams Family infused with the aesthetics of Riverdale.

But Ortega's talent knows no bounds. Her stellar portrayal earned her an Emmy nomination, making her the youngest Latina actor to achieve such recognition in an acting category. Prior to this, Ortega had also received nominations for prestigious accolades like the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards for her role.

In a surprising turn of events last year, Ortega withdrew from her role in Scream VII, citing scheduling conflicts. However, fans eagerly anticipate her appearance in Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, the highly anticipated sequel slated for release on September 6, 2024, where she will join original stars Winona Ryder and Michael Keaton reprising their iconic roles.

The announcement of a sequel to Tim Burton's beloved cult classic, after over three decades, has ignited fervent anticipation among movie enthusiasts. As Miller’s Girl makes its rounds in US cinemas, fans in the UK eagerly anticipate its release on Amazon Prime Video starting from February 19.
