Stars are, in fact, a lot like us — which includes sitting on their couches and endlessly consuming new TV shows they heard were great.
Celebrities haven’t escaped this new national pastime. And who would expect them to? According to a recent TiVo survey, about nine out of 10 people are regularly binge-viewing at least three episodes of a program in one sitting.
TV and film stars often count themselves among the biggest entertainment fans out there. Not only that, but watching a lot of programming in spurts could be considered homework for them — at the very least it’s helping to sharpen their craft.
Business Insider asked several stars — from Jane Fonda to Donald Glover and Rami Malek (“Mr. Robot”) — what they’re binge-watching these days.
Here’s what they said they’re obsessively keeping up with:
'I just binge-watched 'Getting On.'' -- Sarah Paulson, 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story' (FX)
''Mr. Robot,' 'Masters of Sex,' and 'Orange Is the New Black.'' -- Jane Fonda, 'Grace and Frankie' (Netflix)
'Well, I did two very different shows. I did 'Making a Murderer' and then I did 'Chef's Table.' Literally, I did them back-to-back as a palette cleanser from the darkness.' -- Rachael Taylor, 'Jessica Jones' (Netflix)
'Truthfully, 'The Walking Dead.' That's just the latest one. I binge-watch everything.' -- Donald Glover, 'Atlanta' (FX)
''Orange Is the New Black,' and I'm eagerly awaiting the return of 'House of Cards.'' -- Lily Tomlin, 'Grace and Frankie' (Netflix)
