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