Stranger Things fans are shaking. Despite being amongst the fan favorites in the Netflix series, Jim Hopper is pretty problematic and Evan Rachel Wood thinks so too.
The Westworld actress took to Twitter to warn followers about the red flags in the fictional character’s behavior in Stranger Things 3. He is played by actor David Harbour.
“You should never date a guy like the cop from #strangerthings Extreme jealousy and violent rages are not flattering or sexy like TV would have you believe. That is all,” the actress wrote following a series of Tweets.
Wood later added, “Yes I am aware it’s ‘just a show’ and it’s set ‘in the 80s’ even though this stuff was unacceptable then too, but that’s exactly my point. It’s just a show and this is a gentle reminder not to fall for this crap in real life. Red flags galore.”
The actress also responded to a fan who expressed relief that Wynona Ryder’s character Joyce Byers did not end up with Jim Hopper by the end of the season. Wood pointed out that Joyce Byers still agreed to go out with him.
“She rescheduled the date he yelled and got in her face about while policing every guy she spoke to. No thanks,” Wood tweeted adding, “She is allowed to stand him up without being screamed at. Especially when she is worried about her children. Priority number 1. He also insisted it wasn’t a date and clearly he lied. She shouldn’t have rescheduled. He should have gone to therapy.”
