Adam Driver Walks Out of NPR Interview Over “Marriage Story” Clip

Actor Adam Driver recently walked out of an interview with NPR’s Terry Gross after the <i>Fresh Air</i> host played a clip from the movie <i>Marriage Story</i>, <i>Variety</i> reports. “We don’t really understand why he left,” Danny Miller, exec producer of <i>Fresh Air</i> said in a statement. “We were looking forward to the interview—Terry thinks he’s a terrific actor, he was a great guest when he was on [<i>Fresh Air</i>] in 2015—so we were disappointed that we didn’t have a new interview to share with our listeners about <i>Marriage Story</i>.” The clip in question was one of the most memorable scenes from the movie, which shows Driver singing the song “Being Alive.” Miller went on to say that they were aware that Driver does not like looking back at clips from old movies, and that they tried to accommodate him, but instead, the actor left as the clip played. “We still don’t understand why Adam Driver chose to leave the interview at that point.” Driver has talked about how much he dislikes looking back at his old performances, telling <i>Fresh Air </i>in 2015, “I’ve watched myself or listened to myself before, then always hate it.”
