Adam Driver for GQ Magazine

Posted on August 20, 2014

Adam Driver is getting the hard sell, darlings. He IS your new fantasy man, goddammit. Now get in line.

 

Adam-Driver-GQ-Magazine-September-2014-Issue-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)“Girls” actor Adam Driver covers the September 2014 issue of GQ magazine in Burberry London photographed by Paola Kudacki.

 

That’s a terrible shot of him. He looks like a muppet.

Inside, he says the kind of things that cocky actors having a moment tend to say when you give them a chance to spout off:

 

On his overnight stardom: “In a way, I don’t feel like I’ve really put in my dues. Like it doesn’t feel earned. My plan was to be able to make a living as an actor. And then everything else just…”

On the reason why he hates the Internet: “Not to get on, like, a stomping pedestal about the culture or anything,” he tells me at one point. “But everyone is so used to having everything immediately, and that doesn’t seem to lend itself to things being good. You know? The things on there, they’re just mediocre. There’s not really a lot of work or weight involved.”

On life: “Life’s shitty, and we’re all gonna die. You have friends, and they die. You have a disease, someone you care about has a disease, Wall Street people are scamming everyone, the poor get poorer, the rich get richer. That’s what we’re surrounded by all the time. We don’t understand why we’re here, no one’s giving us an answer, religion is vague, your parents can’t help because they’re just people, and it’s all terrible, and there’s no meaning to anything. What a terrible thing to process! Every. Day. And then you go to sleep. But then sometimes, things can suspend themselves for like a minute, and then every once in a while there’s something where you find a connection.”

That’s fascinating, Adam. Do go on.

Not one good shot that sets off his unique looks to best effect. This is barely above catalogue work. Disappointing. That’s a face and body that could take some amazing shots under the right circumstances. This is just unimaginative.

      Elton from Clueless realness.

      • Karen Belgrad

        Yes! I was trying to figure out why he bugged (when I’ve never seen Girls) and then I saw your comment. Can we send him to the quad to get his Cranberries CD?

        • sugarkane105

          “My foot hurts. Can I go to the nurse?”

          • eowyn_of_rohan

            “Turn away….turn away-ay-ay-ay…turn away…”

            • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

              “Do you even KNOW who my father is?”

      • eowyn_of_rohan

        See, if they’d had put Jeremy Sisto on the cover I might actually have been interested.

        • Imasewsure

          Agreed.. He’s aging nicely too… we can keep him around for awhile… :)

        • Jennifer Schiller

          Aww now I just really miss Suburgatory.

    • hughman

      Not so pretty when it speaks, is it?

      • mshesterp

        Oddly enough, he sounds just exactly how I’d expect Adam Driver to talk–kind of douche-y–and I’m not interested in hearing anymore, sweetie. ‘kthanksbyenow.

        • sugarkane105

          I know most of Bitter Kittens avoid Girls like the plague, but after having read his quotes, I’ve realized he IS his character on the show. I’m starting to question if he actually acts at all on it.

          • papillon

            Honestly, I feel like that goes for the entire main cast, except for maybe Zosia. It’s almost like Lena wrote with them in mind (I know she did it for Jemima).

            • demidaemon

              That’s my impression of it too, though I can’t comment on specifics as a non-watcher.

          • hughman

            The first season it was all “ZOMG, GIRLS!” everywhere you looked with the recaps and the gifs and the blah all over. I had friends for whom my watching the show was a dealbreaker and they actually bought me HBO for the express purpose of being able to share with me their perfect moments every Sunday. Now the internet doesn’t seem that interested and god knows I’m not.

            • Introspective

              thank god we’ve moved on, really.

      • Pennymac

        ^^Understatement of the year, right there. UGH.

      • TigerLaverada

        Not so pretty when he doesn’t speak, either, IMO.

        • Glam Dixie

          That cover shot looks like a caricature drawing come to life. His hair is fabulous, the rest, no thank you.

        • lunchcoma

          He does nothing for me all around.

        • WendyD

          Glad to know that I’m not the only one who doesn’t get his appeal in the least. I’m rather annoyed that he’s in the Star Wars film.

    • James

      The less said about his pseudo intellectualism, the better. Also, I’ve never found him hot. Below average, by quite a bit.

      • Violentcello

        Agreed. I’m not going to get on a stomping pedestal about what other people find attractive, but this guy does nothing for me.

      • yethica

        I will “third” that motion. Blech.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      If Alfred E. Neuman and Dustin Hoffman had a baby, he would be it.

      • deelup

        Wish he has the humor of the former and the talent of the latter.

      • greymain

        Perfect!

    • http://instagram.com/nevareese International Model

      Sweat pants should have no place in front of the camera for a guy editorial.

      • Anna

        The Big Normcore Style Issue!

    • Sarah

      I’m going to get on a Stomping Pedestal and say: STFU, yo. Some of us are trying, each and every day, to ignore the those aspects of life you so eloquently pointed out and look for the good stuff, instead.

      • kimmeister

        Is a Stomping Pedestal taller or shorter than a soapbox?

        • Sarah

          I’m not sure, but it seems like it might be. Tall enough to not allow oxygen to the brain of the person atop it, apparently.

        • Violentcello

          It must be shorter, right? If it’s too tall, you’ll overbalance and fall off when you stomp.

      • NMMagpie

        Well said!!

      • decormaven

        Not so sure it was eloquent. What a load of flapdoodle.

        • Sarah

          Indeed. Sarcasm, of course. Jackass.

      • sugarkane105

        And while many of the things he says may be true, it’s all incredibly hard to swallow coming from a friggin’ MOVIE STAR. Like, enjoy your life dude. It’s much better than most of ours.

        • Sarah

          I am thinking my life is WAY better because I’m not a vapid moron.

          • Glam Dixie

            A vapid self-important moron. In the words of the immortal Bugs Bunny, “What a maroon.”

        • Mousentrude

          The difficulty is that if you are the sort of person who looks at life in a negative way it can be extremely difficult to see it any other way, and being rich or famous doesn’t actually make any difference. Most famous actors are just human beings who happen to be in the limelight because of the job they do. While one can argue that they chose the job and ought to be grateful for the perks the lifestyle brings, I don’t think this means that they can automatically see life as rosy.

    • MemHey

      From the thumbnail I thought it was Andrew Keegan and I was 11 years old again.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Here is a guy who will physically back you into a corner while at a party and talk at you for 45 minutes.

      • Imasewsure

        Wait you forgot about the end of the sentence… “talk at you for 45 minutes… about himself!” So true so true

      • demidaemon

        The first part of your sentence scared the shit out of me. Thank God you ended it the way that you did.

        • KateShouldBeWorking

          Super sorry about that; not my intention at all. We see enough “scary” stuff on this blog (e.g., satin Zac Posen) as is.

        • aurumgirl

          As if having to listen to some guy who’s backed you into a corner talk about himself for 45 minutes isn’t terrifying.

          • demidaemon

            It is, but in an entirely different way than what I was thinking.

      • portlandmermaid

        Right, “blah, blah, blah, me, blah, blah, me…oh yeah, let me back up a bit.”

      • Qitkat

        I met that guy once, he was working in the vitamin aisle at an organic market. Asked a simple innocent question…he turned into a tent revival preacher yaddayadda-ing as I slowly backed away, but not nearly soon enough.

        • KateShouldBeWorking

          Eesh. Sounds like the bad kind if interesting.

      • lunchcoma

        I went to grad school with a couple dozen of versions of him, and 45 minutes is what you’ll get if he’s reasonably sober. If he’s high, time to sneak away and go home, because your evening’s over.

    • Nora Charles

      I’m seeing 70s era David Naughton on the cover. Suddenly craving a Dr. Pepper.

    • roverrun

      I did read /or heard somewhere that he enlisted to join the Marines the day after 9-11. He was just over 18 at the time.

      • Imasewsure

        Had to look him up since I don’t know who he is… I think I have to actually like him now in spite of his quotes here … he is a Scorpio (like me), is married to his “long time girlfriend,” was a Marine for two years, has a non-profit and lists John Cassavetes as his role model… might still be pretentious but those are some surprising pluses for a young actor…. He should keep the quotes to a minimum however… these are awful!

      • altermyego

        I think it was the Rolling Stone interview.

    • Anna

      The second photo reminds me of the time my boss’s kids came to visit him at work at a former job and within minutes, they’d built a fort out of the boxes and bubblewrap in the copy room. Not that I was bitter about having to re-organize the copy room or anything.

      He bugs me. I think I’ve added him to my Irrational Hate List.

      • portlandmermaid

        Is it bad that I want him to fall while he’s twinkletoeing off those logs?

        • Anna

          Not bad at all. I’m wishing for a powerful gust of wind while he’s mid-twinkletoe.

    • toriadoria

      I do love the Han Solo reference in his first outfit.

      • Kimbolina

        Really? Because I hate it. He ain’t no Harrison Ford.

    • MartyBellerMask

      Such a striking young man, these pictures give me teh sadz. :(

    • TM

      Charlie from Girls had a small profile in the NYTimes after leaving and his quotes resonated far more. Gosh I miss Charlie.

    • decormaven

      No expense was spared for the set decoration, I see.

    • sugarkane105

      That third shot is TERRIBLE. They were so focused on choosing a pic that makes him look like he’s levitating, that they ended up picking one where his face is unrecognizable.

    • muelonil

      Stomping pedestals…are those the ones carved from Whomping Willows?

      • Anna

        I wish I had a Whomping Willow to smack him off his “stomping pedestal.”

      • Jacob Bowen

        I literally JUST finished re-reading this (for the 10th time) yesterday!

    • alyce1213

      I find him unattractive, and not in the sense of whether he’s handsome or not, just not attractive. And now I can add to that: inarticulate.
      No thanks. (He has good hair, though.)

    • Leslie Streeter

      You know how sometimes when an actor has a moustache and then they shave it, like Tom Selleck did once, and their face looks naked and misshapen without it? The photograph somehow did that to Adam and he never even had a moustache. They stretched something, screwed something up.

    • @Biting Panda

      damnit it. i love big noses and bad attitudes. i’m an idiot.

      • Kitten Mittons

        I love big noses, too, but I draw the line there.

        • alyce1213

          I too love a prominent nose. Mr Cheetah has a French-type gros nez (see Charles deGaulle). But this guy doesn’t do it for me.

          • Kitten Mittons

            Not at all.

        • krelnick

          It’s like a big nose sitting on top of another big nose.

        • demidaemon

          Agreed. Even as a fellow big nose lover, the attitude really kills the love.

      • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

        Care to arm wrestle for Adrian Brody? *eyebrow wiggle*

        • formerlyAnon

          Sorry. I don’t think 3-way arm wrestling is a thing.

          • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

            Oh, like you’ve never tried a 3-way.

            • formerlyAnon

              I must inform you, my dear, that I am Pure as the Driven Snow. And have been for lo, these many decades. Mostly. *ahem*

            • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

              *Ahem* indeed.

      • formerlyAnon

        He’s dead solid my type, but not the more attractive end of the scale. I have to admit, I prefer this attitude to the usual magazine interview blather. But he’s too old to really mean it. By 30 one should have grasped that those good moments – that’s what’s important. That’s what one focuses on and strives to create and to appreciate. And that they are surprisingly common, if one is open to them & not walking about in nihilistic fog.

        Decent coffee at sunrise, a laugh you weren’t expecting, the dog doing something stupid/cute, seeing someone being polite or even generous for a fellow shopper in the grocery store – you can skate from one to the next most days, if you’re looking.

    • Kitten Mittons

      “Life’s shitty, and we’re all gonna die. You have friends, and they die. You have a disease, someone you care about has a disease, Wall Street people are scamming everyone, the poor get poorer, the rich get richer. That’s what we’re surrounded by all the time.” Says the rich boy getting richer.

      Oohhh, yes, please tell me more about your take on distribution of wealth trends, and how to deal with real loss in my life. The depth and breadth of your life experience intrigues me so.

      ETA: Clothes and photos are as bad as the quotes.

      • loripop

        I love you for your sarcasm as well as your screen name.

        • Kitten Mittons

          Why thank you! A Sunny fan, I presume? May I interest you in some rum ham?

          • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

            I’ll start blowing up the raft!

            • Sarah

              I’m not giving you the knife. There may come a time when Decisions need to be made.

            • Kitten Mittons

              Ohh, these are my people. Love y’all so much.

              *toasts the room with a bit o’ ham on my fork*

            • Angela_the_Librarian

              And perhaps a bit of sunscreen to wash it down?

            • Anna

              This place is amazingggggggg! And the sunblock drink, nice guys.

            • Sarah

              Toasts back with a bit of hot milk, McPoyle style.

            • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

              I salute you with an icy Haberkern.

            • Kitten Mittons

              I’m just realizing you still have Johnny Derpp as your avatar. This makes me so happy.

            • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

              Er jerst cernt quert herm.

          • Anna

            Goddamnit, Frank. Eating your drinks? That is genius.

            • Angela_the_Librarian

              Might you say we’re getting “hammered?”

          • loripop

            Yes please, and some wine in a soda can. Unless this is an intervention, in which case I’ll need my gun.

            • Kitten Mittons

              Diet Coke Wine it is! Whatever you fancy, dear.

          • AthenaJ

            Keep it away from the stray dogs!

            • Kitten Mittons

              I don’t think these dogs have masters, I think they play by their own rules.

    • jonnyf8

      Ick.

    • Alaska Raptor Rehabilitation

      “The things on there, they’re just mediocre. There’s not really a lot of work or weight involved.” Spoken like dumbass who has never been anywhere on the internet except Facebook.

      • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

        And Buzzfeed.

    • MilaXX

      A bunch of really bad pictures together with stupid sound bites

      • alyce1213

        You’d think, knowing you had a big time GQ cover and interview, you’d give some thought to things you might want to say. Either he’s not savvy about such things, or he really has nothing to say.

        • decormaven

          It makes me long for the days when publicists wrote the responses for their clients. There are many stars of yore that would probably be crossed off my favorites list had they been allowed to air their real thoughts. I appreciate this actor’s work, I admire his good looks, but hon, spare me the Deep Thoughts. [Off to practice my pirouettes off my Stomping Pedestal.]

        • Scott Finley

          Or he has a publicist who is incompetent

    • Scott Finley

      Ah yes I see the march towards even more vapid and generic celebrity continues. This douche is boring and common as dirt.

    • krelnick

      “There is nothing wrong with your TLo. Do not attempt to adjust the picture…”

    • Dany

      I find him violently unattractive.

      The last quote, while true, is a bit rich coming from him. Unless he has clinical mental illness, in which case I apologize and it is a serious thing.

    • papillon

      I can’t believe they even included that rambling quote about life in the magazine. Why? Just why? Why would they even ask him about life in that way? He’s an actor, (clearly) not a philosopher. He certainly didn’t say anything new or unusual.

      All the pictures are terrible as well and there’s just something really, really odd going on with his head in the first picture. I also still can’t believe he’s going to be in the new Star Wars. Just what?

      • random_poster

        Is he the new Jar-Jar Binks? The whiff of annoying is strong with this one.

    • GoAwayKardash

      Ok, he may be talented…but any woman with looks like that would never, ever, ever make it in movies or TV or on the cover of a magazine. No matter how talented.

      • AthenaJ

        Thank you!! If a woman with a nose like his DARED to try to make it in Hollywood she’d be laughed right out of every door. Unless she was cast deliberately in the part of an ‘ugly’ woman. I mean, SJP has been getting the ‘horse’ insults since forever and she is, in my opinion, beautiful (though yes I know she overdoes it with the eyeliner).

    • marlie

      These are disappointing, and a tiny bit unflattering. Totally not the best use of his really interesting and striking features.

    • ashtangajunkie

      Shitty photos – what a shame! He’s cute. He should stick to lines other people write for him…Even Lena Dunham.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      “The things on there, they’re just mediocre. There’s not really a lot of work or weight involved.”

      You need to find a better porn site.

      • demidaemon

        HA!

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      Throw actor on pile of empty boxes, call it art.

      And calling the entire internet mediocre is just begging for a roasting.

    • Wink

      Nice head of hair. (That’s the kindest thing I can say about this.)

    • SewingSiren

      I don’t watch Girls , but I think he’s cute.

    • World of Sass

      Wow those pullquotes really make me want to get baked with him.

    • kt

      The right circumstances were in that editorial he did for Vogue a year or so ago. The cover is almost there, the rest is weak sauce.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      He reminds me strongly of Jeff Goldblum in these photos, which is odd because the resemblance never occurred to me before.

    • BlairBear

      Please tell us about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. Nice Prada by the way

    • Linda LaPaz

      It’s like the middle third of his face is huge – way out of proportion. Not a good photo.

    • KinoEye

      Peals of wisdom from Adam Driver, noted philosopher. He should be a guest contributor for Preserve. His first article: “On Stomping Pedestals and the Futility of Life with a Multimillion Dollar Bank Account.”

      • Anna

        HA! That Adam, he feels so many feelings about life, he just can’t shut his face-hole…

        • decormaven

          Winner!

        • AthenaJ

          Perhaps we should stuff some victuals in it.

          • Anna

            HAHAHA. I get the feeling that he’s the type to talk with his mouth full though.

      • jen

        Ha! Yes!!

    • http://heartprintandstyle.com/ Vivi N

      He looks better with a beard/shadow/some hair on his face. The clean shaven look isn’t his friend.

    • heartbot

      I don’t know who he is, and between the pictures and the soundbytes, I don’t care to find out more.

    • Bernadette

      He doesn’t seem to do well on a blank set. His photos in Vogue on location have been amazing!

    • ChelseaNH

      I thought Chris Pratt was our new fantasy man. Are we moving on already?

      • random_poster

        Absolutely not.

    • JaymeKay

      Never heard of him and he looks as creepy as he sounds. Good luck.

    • GeoDiva

      I don’t get him.

    • elemspbee

      yaix. muppet realness. not pretty

    • conniemd

      He does nothing for me in these shots. I’ve never watched “Girls” so I don’t know how he could be better.

    • Nika E

      He’s so interesting looking, and tall and muscular. You see none of that here. Why are there no brooding b&w shots. Can I get a shirtless pic? Or at least show off those crazy rocket laser arms. This set of pictures are doing nothing for him or all the ladies (like me) who thinks there is a really dark sexy guy in there some where.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        Shirtless is his best angle.

    • thecitysleeps

      I cry. He has such a beautiful, unique face and these pictures are an abomination.

    • TigerLaverada

      Don’t know who this guy is, but his interview reads like he’s about 15. I’ll pass.

    • demidaemon

      This entire issue sounds like a real joy to read. “Everybody dies,” “Male Rape” and “Sleazebags.” Can’t wait to run out and get my issue!

      Also, he’s a terrible model and does nothing for me.

    • boweryboy

      Umm…wut did you just say?

    • SophieCollier

      I’ve never seen this man before, but his face is enormous! Like, it looks as though it was badly photoshopped onto a smaller head. Not to say he’s ugly. Just… man that is a lot of face.

    • ChiKat67

      He looks like what Jonathan Taylor Thomas thought he would look like as an adult…before he realized that he would never grow beyond the size of a hobbit.

    • FibonacciSequins

      He’s a little too Serious Actor for my taste, but I like what I’ve seen of his work. These photos are embarrassingly bad.

    • snarkykitten

      I have no idea who this person is…he looks like a weird realistic version of the MAD guy.

    • frannyprof

      He’s about as deep as those empty cardboard boxes he’s sitting on.

    • Constant Reader

      Quelle douche.

    • Alloy Jane

      I know people are all annoyed with the juvenile quality of the things he has to say about life, but I ain’t mad at him for feeling despair regardless of how cushy his personal life has become. I mean, ffs, Robin Williams, one of the funniest people of the age, a fountain of joy for many of us, just commit suicide. A man who brought nothing but happiness to his audience was so lacking in happiness in his own self that he took his life.

      So if Adam Driver thinks and says that life sucks because he looks at all the terrible things in the world and can’t see beyond them, and not because he doesn’t have enough celebrity endorsements or movie deals or cars, I’m not going to be disparaging of him. I’m going to feel bad for him the same way I feel bad for all people who are so mired in their own misery that they can’t see the good in the world. I’m going to hope that for his sake and his family’s that someone in his camp picks up the big fat hint that this guy is depressed and gets him some help.

      He thinks he hasn’t earned his success so he can’t feel happiness at it. That is sad. Just fucking sad. And I am shocked and disappointed at the lack of compassion being expressed to someone who clearly has a problem.

        Not everyone interprets his statements the same way you do. Diagnosing from an interview is a dangerous game.

        • Melissa Maladroite

          I get where she’s coming from though. Everyone above is interpreting these statements as coming from a douchey place, so we’re all judging from small snippets. Maybe it was said with sadness. It’s possible to be miserable and existential (and not everyone is particularly articulate about it) even when fortunate

            I’m glad someone here understands where I was coming from, but for the record, depression is not always sad. It can be also be expressed as anger or apathy. Some people don’t express outward signs depression at all. Mental illness is complicated.

        • Alloy Jane

          What you call “interpretation” I call “pointing out the obvious,” and a quick google search of “Adam Driver depression” yields results linking to him admitting that he currently suffers from depression and experienced deep depression after he was discharged from the military. Maybe it’s my experience with suicide casualties, mentally unstable people, or guilt-riddled combat veterans (as in “I survived but my friends didn’t” guilt), but anyone who expresses the sentiment that “life sucks” is waving a red flag.

          You know, I don’t get how armchair diagnosis is dangerous. Setting your hair on fire is dangerous. Jumping out of a tree is dangerous. Expressing an opinion about a stranger with whom I will never have contact is absolutely innocuous.

          • krelnick

            Ok

        I also thought he sounded seriously depressed. A little pretentious, but seriously depressed, all the same. And depression is a brain disease. Fame, fortune, and loving family and friends does not inoculate you against it anymore than they prevent a person from getting cancer, diabetes or having a heart attack. It is dangerous to diagnose any illness from an interview, of course, but if you read even just a few of Robin William’s interviews or watch his routines, you see evidence of it over and over. Of course, it was buried in a shit ton of funniness, so it was easy to overlook. Mr. Driver does not seem to have a comedic side. More’s the pity. These photos are not likely to improve his mood, either.

        “So if Adam Driver thinks and says that life sucks because he looks at all the terrible things in the world and can’t see beyond them”….oh bullshit. Just bullshit. His statement has no value, no depth. If he thinks the world sucks then fucking help fix it. Use your resources wisely and generously. Use your celebrity to help bring change. For fuck sake don’t spew worthless statements that fall to the ground like a lead weight. What a waste.

        • Alloy Jane

          FYI he runs a military nonprofit called Arts in the Armed Forces. This is their mission statement: To honor, educate, inspire, and entertain all active duty and veteran members of the United States Armed Forces and their families by engaging them in the power and social service of the performing arts. So clearly he’s making his effort to improve the world.

          You can think what I say is utter, nonsensical bullshit, but thinking life sucks is often an indicator of some psychological dysfunction. I’ll rephrase it to make sure I’m being clear: It is 100% abnormal to think that life sucks and is meaningless.

          And your statement is yet another example of the lack of compassion I mentioned.

            I’m going to have to ask you to stop. You are berating people because they’re not interpreting the sound bites from some actor’s interview in the exact same way you are.

      • lunchcoma

        It’s entirely possible he’s impressed. If he is, and I don’t think that’s necessarily the case, he’s being a douchey depressed person. People with mental illness can behave badly too. As someone who also struggles with depression, I feel sympathy for him, but also think that it would be good for him to work on restraining the bitter, judging impulse and to learn to talk about things in terms of “I” rather than “you.”

        • Alloy Jane

          Because depression needs to be beautifully expressed to be worth acknowledging? You have to be a nice depressed person to be worth helping? I read the interview and I thought “damn, that guy has problems.” But the commentary just shows why people who do suffer from depression don’t get help. There is little sympathy from society for people who aren’t depressed in a socially acceptable manner.

    • LeelaST

      The douche is strong with this one.

    • Chartreusite

      SO disappointing he usually looks way hot in editorials whoever photographed this one didn’t know what they had on their hands…

    • Miss wks

      maybe it would help if he learned how to smize and booty douche, I mean touche….

    • greymain

      Huh? Just don’t see it.

    • H2olovngrl

      That first shot, looks like jar jar binks.

    • Man Dala

      I agree, nothing special about this shots. Plus he looks way better with facial hair.

    • Coralie

      Everything on the entire internet is mediocre? What is he even talking about? Ugh.

    • BrooklynBomber

      “That’s fascinating, Adam. Do go on.”
      Haha. Exactly.
      Who the hell is he?
      Oh, never mind.

      • sweetlilvoice

        I wondered the same thing but I had to assume that he’s Han Solo or something due to the Star Wars reference on the cover. Isn’t he dressed like him? I rather like his nose, it’s unusual…it makes him not just straight up boring handsome.

        • BrooklynBomber

          Oh, I missed that. For some reason I always forget to read what’s on the covers.

    • http://fibonaccisequins.storenvy.com/ Danielle

      *wipes hands with a baby wipe* I feel greasy.

    • JynxTheCat

      I like his sound bites. And he’s lovely.

    • Mr. J.

      Love the Prada coat. That is all.

    • yllas

      Interesting looking man. I like the big coat in the last shot, where he looks a teeny tiny bit like a younger, better-looking Kramer (Jerry Seinfeld Kramer) with that ‘duh’ look. (I hate Kramer).

    • Therese Bohn

      Reminds my of a young Frank Langella :-)

    • Lily

      Meh. I don’t even know who he is.

    • AthenaJ

      A stomping pedestal sounds like some sort of steampunk device.

    • LibKat

      Wow, what god awful photos of an interesting face. It’s like they looked at the Star Wars tie in and went for Jar-Jar instead of Han or Luke.

      Of course, if his sound bites reflect his level of pompous douchiness, maybe it was deliberate.

    • Melanie

      great minds ;)

    • judybrowni

      Okay, maybe I had the tiniest crush on him during the first season of Girls: they managed to kill the last remaining slivers of lust with this editorial.

      Can’t believe the stylist’s, photographer’s and editors’ work all amounted to this hill of beans.

    • librarygrrl64

      Interesting face but otherwise nope.

    • Fuchsiaforever

      I thought he was interesting-looking. But here his face looks like an old shoe- in a bad way. And like a muppet.

    • Michelle Lim

      Aaaww. He’s cute.

    • stubborntomato

      If they mated: Jonathan Taylor Thomas and a MAD Magazine cover.

    • annla

      I don’t like these photos. And I’m not wild about the quotes…. but he is the best actor on Girls. He totally makes that show.

    • formerlyAnon

      He reminds me of one of my more serious boyfriends (in the High School & College Years Division). So the only thing that really bothers me at all, is that by 30 his interview talk [and his internal life if the two are actually related] should be a little more sophisticated. But I won’t lie. I like his answers as well or better than 75% of the ones that get printed.

      Yes, he could be better photographed. But I like prominent bones and the more ugly-than-pretty side of the jolie laide balance, so he’s in the right ballpark.

    • Johnny Neill

      Am I the only person that gets a Bob Denver vibe off him? I like him a lot, and I liked Bob Denver somewhat, too, but wow, he is one ripped Gilligan.
