Adam Driver became a household name after landing the role of Kylo Ren in the latest Star Wars movies. And he subsequently developed into an awards-ceremony staple as well thanks to performances in Marriage Story and BlacKkKlansman. During an interview to promote the latter, however, Driver proved that even A-list Oscar nominees have their insecurities.
Driver was in the middle of a chat with Fresh Air, a show on NPR, when things took a turn for the unexpected. The star was on the show to talk about his turn in Marriage Story, the Noah Baumbach-directed drama in which he appeared opposite Scarlett Johansson. And Driver was gaining significant Oscar buzz at the time for his performance.
