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