Adam Driver Lost 50 Pounds for 'Silence,' Reveals How He Did It

The trailer for Adam Driver‘s upcoming movie Silence was released this past week and something you might notice is how he looks incredibly skinny in the film.

The 33-year-old actor, who played Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, lost 50 pounds for his role in Martin Scorsese‘s new movie.

Adam told The Telegraph that he lost 30 pounds before filming started and another 20 during the shoot.

“It made sense: we were playing Jesuit priests in the 17th century who were starved and beaten. But it was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do, just because of the physical toll it takes on you,” Adam said last year. “Sometimes you would show up to do scenes and all you had energy for was just to listen and respond. But then sometimes a scene wasn’t working and you’re like, ‘I have no idea how to figure this out!’ Plus you’re waking up three times a night to go to the bathroom because you’re taking all these water pills to drop weight.”

Adam said that he had to begin filming Girls again just three weeks after Silence wrapped!

“The first time I had a scoop of peanut butter, I could literally feel my brain turn on. Suddenly you’re like, ‘Oh my God, I can think again!’” he said.
