Adam Driver is 'Petrified of the Internet' - Find Out Why!

Adam Driver is 'Petrified of the Internet' - Find Out Why!

Adam Driver strips down shirtless in a series of photos for V Man Issue 33.

Here’s what the 31-year-old Girls star had to share with the mag:

On his fame making him a voice of his generation: “It’s not really my job to go to set thinking, “This means something for our generation!” It’s really about, “How do we make all this stuff make sense and be truthful?” But I definitely feel disconnected from my generation. The need to share everything doesn’t make sense to me. Or that idea that you’re somehow not speaking by not texting fast or e-mailing a certain amount.”

On not watching Girls: “I try not to watch anything because I don’t have control over it. But I get what she’s going for and I’m excited to be a part of that. I’m petrified of the Internet anyway. It doesn’t quite make sense to me, that mass shaming without any empathy…I guess it goes back to being so certain about being right or wrong.”

On his acting process: “There’s something about not being satisfied…I think some of it is probably genetic. I really enjoy the process. Which is a lie, I guess, because I hate the process! I hate the waiting to actually do the thing. Then while we’re doing it I hate it, because I’m not satisfied. It’s torturous. And you’re trying to find a way to live your life better while you’re doing it, and then your emotions get the better of you—and then you have to sell the things and walk down a carpet in a fancy suit that makes you feel uncomfortable. Or you go to the store and walk out with a bag and somebody chases you! (I remember that day, that guy.) And you can’t act alone in a room, you know? So you have to rely on other people, as much as talking to people scares the shit out of me. So that’s all bad.”

    I am frustrated with all these actors, singers who are fortunate enough to find success while thousands of other talented artist are barely scraping by and they have the audacity to complain. Enjoy your success and keep the ungrateful feelings to yourself. No one has a gun to your head saying you must act. You can get off at anytime and let another who perhaps will enjoy it more get on!

    He looks like Cro-Magnon Man. I’m sorry.

    I know, right? The false humility is sickening.

    Yeah, he would be a real love match … if we still lived in the Cro-Magnon era.

    He reminds me a bit of the occasional poster on Lonely Planet Thorntree who keeps insisting they are a “traveler” and not a tourist. Grow up.

    Wow!I really liked reading him, he seems so different from those “twitter/FB /instagram” PR formatted actors. Glad to hear some divergent spirit here…
    Thank you Lena Dunham for casting him. And BTW i find him REALLY beautiful (and i don’t know why but i’m sure he is Charlotte Gainsbourg’s soul mate).
