  1. I'm becoming dangerously obsessed with Adam (and Kylo.)
    Goddamn he's just adorkable.
    And yes, Adam, you are sexy as hell!

  2. So humble and modest, very down to earth guy. I hope his career continues to be fortuitous. Giving inspiration to others that you can be both a lover and a fighter.

  3. Watching this awkward, 6'3 former marine giggle and heat up when complimented is quite possibly the most adorable fucking thing I've ever seen.

  4. Is he real Paterson in the movie Paterson? His behavior and reaction seem like so Paterson and that was why he was chosen for Paterson.. wow..😍

  5. Dude come on…if youve ever talked to a marine for 20 seconds you learn double quick that its not "were" "was" "used to be" a Marine, its "am" "is" and "are" a Marine.

  6. Colbert is such a douche, he wouldn't know the first thing about working as a team to accomplish a goal, fucking blowhard, fucking POG!

  7. Talking about Martinez seemed to get Adam choked up and teary eyed. So much respect for decent, considerate people like Adam, despite serving within an apparatus that has a tendency of corrupting one's humanity and morals.

  8. In America everyone goes crazy when there hear that someone was in the Army when you say Germany that you was in the Army they say „uh, dont care“.

  9. People that are shy, are definitely more attractive!!!! His reaction reminds me of Hayden Christensen. Both shy and low profile actors, that we don't see them at parties etc… And perfect for their roles in Star Wars <3 <3 <3

  10. He was actually making a great comparison. As a former Marine myself that was a great answer. Wish he would’ve let him finish his answer and not interrupt.

  11. Stephen gets annoying when Adam is literally trying to explain in the Marines you are selfless and everybody works as a team rather than as an individual and he cuts him off that would of pissed me off lol

  12. Patricidal millennial sex symbol! I will never forgive you for killing Han Solo. Wait you’re a Marine…thanks for you service, Adam! 😡😱🤗

  13. Stephen Colbert shoulda stayed in comedy, and not get into politics and shit. Otherwise, he’d be a pretty cool host.

  14. Back in recruit training (PIMCRD) there was this kid from Puerto Rico named Bowet and them DI's used to call him Boba Fett.

  15. When actors get to serious and existential about their life and connections to acting, the hosts feels like they have to interrupt them and throw something in to take them off course and make it funny.

  16. He is just so adorably awkward and humble and that just makes him even more attractive and sexy. Throw in the fact that he’s an incredibly talented actor, served his country, and is just an all around generous human being and I just fall head over heels in love with him. His wife is an incredibly lucky woman.

  17. As I said under a comment below: I don't find Zac Efron sexy at all! And my mother never found Brad Pitt beautiful or even sexy at all. She always thought that he was insipid. Because there are many beauties like these ones – insipid, I mean. And it is more from charisma that attraction comes from. I am french and I know the perfect example to illustrate this point: Serge Gainsbourg! Serge Gainsbourg wasn't a "beauty" but by his charisma and charm, he had Brigitte Bardot as lover, the most beautiful woman in the world some would say. And she was rich by her own. Also beauty do not truly exist at all… It comes from a general acceptance of some criteria that change through ages. For example: In the Middle Age, blond women were consider as beautiful and sexy and even more if they had blue eyes and a large forehead. In the Tudors Era, they liked them redhead or venetian blond. In the Renaissance they wanted them curvy but in the 19th, they liked them pale, nearly maladive with black hair… What I mean here, is that even if men like Adam aren't consider as commonly beautiful in this century, they maybe will be in the next one. Beauty is defined by societal criteria but also by your childhood's experiences so it is why certain people will respond to some others and some others won't.

  18. Charming: noun. the power or quality of pleasing, attracting, or fascinating, to delight greatly, or irresistibly. I think that pretty well sums up Adam's allure.

  19. When I was sitting in TLJ and his shirtless scene came on, I heard 3 different women sitting near me literally gasp. One was like, "Oh!" Like she was surprised and slightly in awe. 😂 I couldn't help but giggle. The thirst was strong in that theater…

  20. What I wanna know is how hard it was to edit out all of the tattoos that said things like, "USMC", "0341", and "Steel Rain" for the shirtless scene in The Last Jedi.

  21. Kylo Ren is absolutely gorgeous but Adam Driver is far more perfect. He's soooo fucking talented and handsome. SHEW. ♥

  22. I was expecting him to say “my nick name in the core? It was Millennial Sex God. Obviously.”

  23. Adam driver is my role model because I'm for sure signing to the USMC then to see what i become next I'll wait and see but since he is a funny guy who makes big budget movies gives me hope that I can have a chance to do something eirh movies when i get older because im a huge movie freak lol
