Adam Driver 3

There’s so much emphasis on Daniel Day-Lewis and his process, which is appropriately his own. But I was just blown away by his generosity as an actor. He’s so giving as an actor that he just naturally commands the focus on set.
Adam Driver

You always read stories of people going out to California and making it as an actor with, like, two dollars, so I figured I’d try it.
Adam Driver

There’s something really exciting about playing someone where you’re given license to be unpredictable.
Adam Driver

Any actor is happy to be involved with something that’s challenging, controversial, and not easily palatable. Things that are too dumbed down or easy to swallow are uninteresting… It’s good when people have such a polarizing response.
Adam Driver

With brain and body, it’s great if you have a connection between the two, but when separated, that leads to a lot of conflict.
Adam Driver

People always are desperate to have others acknowledge that they are different.
Adam Driver

I want to show that theater isn’t just talking about feelings or people wearing tights.
Adam Driver

If there’s one organization in the United States that could work on its communication skills, it’s the military.
Adam Driver

My wife changes the way that I dress. She makes me dress nicer than I want to dress. I feel like I perpetually dress like a 14-year-old boy, and she makes me stand up straight and wear clean clothes.
Adam Driver

I don’t know what else you could do that is more vulnerable – maybe dancing – than singing.
Adam Driver

I own a guitar, a piano, a bass.
Adam Driver

The most you play a character in the theater is, like, a couple months, and then you put it away.
Adam Driver

I don’t really have foresight as an actor as far as career trajectory – I just stick to no-brainer situations.
Adam Driver

Working on ‘Girls’ opened up a lot of opportunity for me. It’s like a dream job. It’s a dream.
Adam Driver

College wasn’t something I saw myself doing.
Adam Driver

Sophocles was a general: a warrior writing plays about military situations.
Adam Driver

I think it’s a common misconception in the civilian community that the military community is filled with just drills and discipline and pain. They forget that these are humans who are in an abnormal situation.
Adam Driver

I’ve seen incredible acts of humanity in the military because people put themselves aside, and it’s about the other person.
Adam Driver

The military community in particular, I think, could always be more supported, especially people who are being processed out of the military and trying to readjust to being civilians.
Adam Driver

I can tell more about my weaknesses than my strengths.
Adam Driver

I wish I could pull shorts off. My wife tells me that I just can’t. But that’s okay. I’m tall, I can do other things, like change light bulbs.
Adam Driver

I don’t consider myself a celebrity. That would be kind of sad.
Adam Driver
