    Canadian psychologist and Toronto University Professor Jordan Peterson has become known internationally due to the popularity of his “Maps of Meaning” lecture series, which explores the origins of modern value systems and Western civilisation in an attempt to examine their validity and relevance.

    In an interview with Men’s Health, British actor Charlie Hunnam specifically heaped praise on noted Canadian psychologist  Jordan Peterson when discussing his new role in Netflix’s Triple Frontier, where he plays a former Special Forces operative.

    “I’m a big fan of Jordan Peterson, as are a lot of people right now—he’s become quite an internet phenomenon, a card-carrying member of the intellectual dark web,” Hunnam said.

    He went on further by comparing the Special Forces “mentality” to Peterson’s way of thinking.

    “I love the message that he promotes, which is "take your life seriously." Carry as much responsibility as possible.  I think in his words he says, ‘pick up the heaviest thing that you can and carry it’”, Hunnam added.

    Twitter uses remained at loggerheads over the actor’s remarks, with some posting a spate of sarcastic messages about Hunnam being a Peterson fan.

    Others, in contrast, noted that they also had a good opinion of the Canadian psychologist, describing him as “smart, articulate and data driven”.
