Multiple news outlets used photos that a shopper took without Geoffrey’s permission to shame the actor for having to work a normal job. Geoffrey appeared on Good Morning America soon thereafter and explained that he had been working at Trader Joe’s for 15 months and liked that the job gave him a steady income while also being flexible to allow him to go out for auditions. Frankly he should be applauded for working at Trader Joe’s. Working hard at any job is honorable.
