Peter Bergman (Jack, The Young and the Restless) Reveals Why He's Not On Social Media! Learn more here--->>
Peter Bergman holds the record for the actor to have received the most Daytime Emmy Award nominations in the category of Outstanding Lead Actor in a drama series. Bergman is nominated for the 23rd time this year for his role as Jack Abbott on The Young and the Restless. The actor spoke with CBS Watch Magazine about his latest Emmy nomination, his work and years on the show, why he's not on social media and so much more.
In regards to why he doesn't have any social media accounts, he revealed, "I have no social media presence. I was too old for it when it happened, and a guy my age suddenly going on Twitter to sell myself just sends out all the wrong messages. My son and daughter are in their thirties. I ran all this stuff by her. She said, “Yeah, it gets a little creepy.”
He loves his kids very much, "I was so determined that my kids were not going to be in this business that I didn’t bring them around for the glamour moments, because if that’s all you see, why wouldn’t you be an actor? They didn’t get to [hear] my friends crying on the phone, friends with incredible résumés who can’t get an audition for something they know about. My kids wouldn’t see that; they’d see just the glamour, so I didn’t introduce them to this. So I’ve never done any of that."
He continued, "I also have held very strongly to what I owe CBS, and that is a great performance. I come in and I pick [scripts] up as soon as I get in the room. I can’t wait to find out what happened to Jack. I don’t ask the writers to tell me what’s going to happen. In fact, I asked them not to tell me what’s going to happen so that when I open these things, I find out. I love doing this. My job is to make [the material] as good as I can make it and go home and have a completely separate life. I have a life at home with my wife and stay in touch with my family, and that’s important to me. Those are two different things."
