Quote Of The Day: Adam Driver Feels Disconnected From His Generation

This is Where I Leave You Premieres in Hollywood

Actor Adam Driver is 31 and a little afraid (okay a lot afraid) of the world wide web and social media.  The Girls star shared in a new interview with V Man magazine that it makes him feel like he can’t completely relate to his generation because of it.

 “I definitely feel disconnected from my generation.  The need to share everything doesn’t make sense to me.”

“I’m petrified of the Internet anyway. It doesn’t quite make sense to me, that mass shaming without any empathy.”

I do agree with Adam on two things: the need to share everything is mind-boggling.  I’m SO thankful that social media wasn’t around when I was going through my teen and early adult years.  Second, the mass shaming without empathy.  That’s a huge issue on the web – in comment sections, on Twitter, Facebook, etc.  If only we could use our technology for good, right?

As an aside, have you seen Adam in This is Where I Leave You yet?  I don’t watch Girls and this is the first movie I’ve watched with him in it and I loved him!  Not enough to watch Girls, but he was still great.

You may know of Adam Driver from his work on “Girls” or have heard that he’s gearing up for an unknown role in “Star Wars Episode VII”, but it’s obvious that Driver isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. He appears on the cover of the September issue of “GQ” and inside he talks about transitioning from the Marines to being a Hollywood actor.

With regard to the Marines, he said, “It’s hard to describe. You’re put in these very heightened circumstances, and you learn a lot about who people are at the core, I think. You end up having this very intimate relationship where you would, like, die for these people. It just seemed like a badass thing to do, to go and shoot machine guns and serve your country.”

After breaking his sternum during a training exercise, Driver was then medically discharged from service. He said, “To not get to go with that group of people I had been training with was…painful.”

He also touched on the subject of why he went to Julliard. He said, “I wanted a challenge. The Marine Corps is supposed to be the toughest and most rigorous of its class. Obviously the stakes are different. You have the risk of getting shot or killed in one and just embarrassed in the other. I thought, this will be easy… I made a lot of people cry.”

When speaking on the topic of fame, he said, “It’s very nice. But in a way, I don’t feel like I’ve really put in my dues. Like it doesn’t feel earned”, adding that talking about acting makes him sound like a “pretentious f***ing a**hole.”

Lastly, he talked of his views on the world and they are quite negative. He said, “Here’s the thing. Life’s sh***y, 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. Da. 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.”

FIRST PHOTO: ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ cast REVEALED!!


WOOHOO!! Today we’re getting our first look at the cast of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ and I am SO excited! It makes me giddy like a little kid to see Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill all back, along with the new cast, including one of my favorite new actors, Adam Driver. HOW FREAKING COOL is this!?

Here’s more from EW!

New to the galaxy far, far away are John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. Meanwhile, the original trilogy stars — Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker — will all be returning.

No word yet on who the new characters will be, but obviously Ford is back as intrepid smuggler Han Solo, Fisher reprises Princess Leia (she made no secret she would be back,) and Hamill will be giving us a glimpse of what life for the last of the Jedi in winter.

Can Daniels still squeeze into that golden C3PO suit? (You know he puts everyone at his high school reunion to shame.) Despite advancements in robotics over thirty-plus years, fans will be glad to know that Baker will still be giving R2-D2 the human touch. And the towering Mayhew will again be riding shotgun and laughing-it-up-fuzzball in the Millennium Falcon as Chewbacca.

“We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII,” director J.J. Abrams says. “It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud.”

Are you just so excited!? I hope they don’t screw it up… that’s all I’ll say about that.

Jennifer Lopez: “I don’t like to be alone.” What a shocking revelation.

The 2014 Fox All-Star Winter TCA Party

Jennifer Lopez is currently promoting the heck out of her return to American Idol. In the upcoming Season 13, she, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. will serve as judges.

During a panel for American Idol, Jennifer opened up about her divorce from ex-husband Marc Anthony, and whether or not she’ll get married again (she’s currently dating dancer-choreographer Casper Smart).

Shortly after her summer 2011 separation from Anthony, 45, the singer went on tour, marking a new chapter for the star. “That was a transformative year for me in so many ways. I had just divorced, and I went on tour with the kids and it was just like, ‘hooooo!’ And I left Idol. It’s like all my security blankets were gone and I was out there doing something I had never done before,” she said. (Lopez, 44, and the Spanish singer split in July 2011 after seven years of marriage. The pair are parents to twins Max and Emme, 5. The singer went on to join the FOX series as a judge for seasons 10 and 11 in 2011 and 2012 respectively.)

Lopez was married twice before Anthony. In January 1998, she divorced Ojani Noa after one year of marriage, and, after a notable relationship with Diddy, she married dancer Cris Judd in 2001 until their divorce in 2003. In arguably her most high-profile romance, she dated Ben Affleck for over two years. The exes — known as “Bennifer” at the time — called off their engagement in 2004.

“I’m one of those people who does not like to be alone. I have no shame saying that at this point in my life,” she explained during the panel. “I think we have to own who we are.”

As for walking down the aisle for the fourth time? “I don’t know, I don’t know, we’ll see,” she said. “I always believed in that institution. My parents were married for a very long time, for 35 years. I believe in it. It’s difficult. I’ve had my challenges but at the same time I believe in love. That’s the main thing.”

I think it’s a fairly obvious thing, her not liking to be alone. She jumps from man-t0-man. If anything ever happened with Casper, she’s be on to the next! I don’t think marriage is for her, though. Three marriages already? Crazy talk.
