'Even if He Doesn’t Know it, Adam and I Are Friends': Confessions From Adam Driver's Celebrity Fan Club

Jemima Kirke & Lena Dunham

Jemima: “My best day was the day that I experienced what it’s like to be picked up [in the air] by Adam Driver.”

Lena: “I like it too. Adam Driver cradled me like a … baby for, like, eight takes, and I won’t lie, it felt good.”

Jemima: “You know the big thing that you jump over in gymnastics?”

Jenni: “The vault.”

Jemima: “That’s Adam Driver. Like, you can just run and jump on it. It doesn’t move, and it supports you fully.”

Lena: “It’s like a hot-ass future-Oscar-winning vault. I’m glad we live in a world where women can reduce men to vaults…”

— Jemima Kirke and Lena Dunham to co-writer Jenni Konner, on their favorite day of filming Girls, in an interview for Glamour

Ben Affleck

“I told [my son], I’m actually in this movie with Kylo Ren. And his mind just opened in two. He was like, ‘But Dad, but how? How do you know Kylo? Are you going to space?’ … So I told Adam that, and he was a sweetheart and [taped] a birthday video for my son. […] Adam made me a hero to my kid and I will never, ever, ever forget it.”

Scarlett Johansson

“It’s a scene that’s really specifically choreographed… and I had such an incredible scene partner. So much of it is just being in those moments with Adam and reacting to what he was giving me and vice versa.”

“Even if he doesn’t know it, Adam and I are friends. I freakin’ love Adam, I call him all the time, I stalk him. So I believe that chemistry that you’re talking about [in BlacKkKlansman] felt pretty honest, it felt real. But Adam’s such an intense and a great actor, you have to — If you’re not honest when you’re working with him, you will get exposed, quick. Sometimes, some takes, when he’s looking at me, and I’m like ‘Alright,  I was lying on the tape, let’s do it again, I can tell by the way you’re looking at me Adam.'”
