Hollywood is filled with some very talented and attractive leading men, who have all made a place for themselves in this industry, and one such person with an interesting journey, who has come incredibly far is none other than Adam Driver. In the last decade or so, we have seen Adam Driver play several roles in movies and tv shows. He has been the romantic guy, he has been the villain, he has been the savior and he has managed to have an entire movie centered on depicting a range of very strong emotions, and yes, we are talking about Marriage Story, which has been one of his most noteworthy performances in the recent years.
There’s a lot more to Adam Driver than his charismatic personality, height, and good looks. He is one of the finest actors that Hollywood has produced, and continues to be one even today. In 2023, we will witness Adam Driver in a completely new role in the highly-anticipated movie, 65. Here’s everything you need to know about Adam Driver, from his net worth to his biography, to his dating history and more:
Adam Driver’s net worth, as of 2022, stands at $16 million, which is fairly less compared to his fellow peers. This could be because Adam doesn’t just stick to blockbuster movies, but likes expanding his roles to different genres with different filmmakers and producers. A huge chunk of Adam Driver’s net worth is from his role in the Star Wars franchise, for which he received a lot of critical appreciation and a huge fan following. People definitely began noticing Adam Driver more after his performance in Marriage Story opposite Scarlett Johansson. It seems to us that Adam Driver focuses more on the role than the scale of production, which is very admirable. In 2023, he will play the lead role in a Sam Raimi production, 65, so it is almost certain that his net worth is bound to increase from there.
Adam Driver was born on the 19th of November, 1983, in San Diego, California, which makes him 39 as of 2022! As we mentioned before, he has had an interesting journey, which includes being a misfit in his teenage years, to being rejected from the Julliard School of drama, to eventually enlisting himself in the United States Marine Corps after the unfortunate 9/11 attacks, where he served for two years and eight months until he was medically discharged. Once again, Driver attempted to get accepted into Julliard, knowing well that it would be the pathway to his dream career, and this time around he was successful. After graduating from Julliard, Driver moved to New York City where he worked a few odd jobs while also appearing in some Broadway productions. During this time, he was a part of several tv shows and short films.
In 2012, Driver was cast in the popular tv series, Girls, which was a comedy-drama, loosely based on the life of Lena Dunham. He played the role of Adam Sackler, the on-again-off-again boyfriend of the lead character, Hannah. He received three Primetime Emmy Award nominations for this role, and it was more than well deserved because it was the first glimpse that viewers got into just how versatile Adam Driver can be. 2012, was a good year for Driver, as he also featured in two critically acclaimed movies, Lincoln and Frances Ha. Driver continued to work in movies and shows, but it wasn’t until 2015 that he achieved some mainstream and commercial success.
Adam Driver featured as the villain Kylo Ren in the 2015 Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and also reprised the role in The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker which were released in 2017 and 2019 respectively. These were the years, where Driver garnered a huge fan following, especially from the Stars Wars franchise, which is undeniably one of the biggest franchises in the world. Driver continued to work with some of the biggest directors and writers including Martin Scorsese and Spike Lee.
Two of Adam Driver’s most popular movies are BlacKkKlansman and Marriage Story, and for both, he received critical acclamation and praise from fans all across the globe. He was also nominated for an Academy Award for his roles in both these movies.
While Adam Driver has always been considered an attractive man, he isn’t the conventional Hollywood man when it comes to looks. In 2021, Driver went viral after his campaign with Burberry’s masculine fragrance Hero, where he was shirtless, and on popular demand, he returned for the same campaign in 2022 as well! While being shirtless for Burberry, Driver continued working his way up after featuring in movies across any and every genre.
This leads us to now, where Adam Driver gears up to star in 65 in the March of 2023. This role will be different from anything that he was done before, and we can’t wait to see it!
Adam Driver’s dating history is very brief and we don’t have much gossip here, not even rumors about his gem of a man. Driver has been married to Joanne Tucker since 2013. During his time at Julliard, he was a member of the Drama Division’s Group 38 from 2005 to 2009, and that is where he met Joanne Tucker. She is also an actress and has appeared in movies like Gayby, Give or Take, and Zero Days. She is a year older than Driver, and as of now, the couple doesn’t have any children.
Adam Driver is the son of Nancy Wright and Joe Douglas Driver and has some very interesting ancestry that traces back to Scottish, Irish, German, and English roots. He was raised Baptist by his stepfather and lived with his mother and older sister, April after he turned 7. Driver even sang in a choir, believe it or not, considering how deep his voice is today!
Adam Driver most definitely has a lot in store for him in 2023 and he doesn’t seem to have retirement on his mind anytime soon, and we are more than thrilled about it. Driver has played several roles over the years, do let us know in the comments which have been your favorite performance so far.
