Henry Winkler says, “Most people in my industry don’t have enough” during strikes


Henry Winkler took a moment for This is About Humanity’s fifth annual Saturday night fundraising soirée—which he co-hosted with daughter Zoe Winkler Reinis at his Los Angeles home—to address the ongoing writers’ and actors’ strikes.

“I’ve said this many times, but if it’s not on the page, it’s not on the podium. In New York the playwright reigns supreme; here the writer gets fired. That’s insane,” said Winkler The Hollywood reporter. “That’s number 1. Number 2, I love my job, I’m very lucky. Most people in my industry don’t have enough. It is very important that we all make sure that everyone has enough. That’s my feeling.”

“This is what I feel: it is going to end. How it ends, I have no idea. But until it ends, I’m very lucky,” Winkler continued. In the meantime he is busy and notes that soon his 39th children’s book will be released, as well as his autobiography, Henry being: the Fonz. . . and furtherwhich comes out on October 31.

The star was also recently nominated for his ninth Emmy and fourth for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as acting teacher Gene Cousineau on the final season of Barry – with which he will now wait until January to see if he won, after the awards ceremony was postponed for four months due to the strikes. The Writers Guild of America has been on strike since May 2, with SAG-AFTRA joining the picket line on July 13.
