The “Celebrity True or False” segment also saw Adam Driver address some other “Star Wars” rumors, some of which he confirmed to Rich Eisen were valid. Among them was the fact he took home Kylo Ren’s costume and lightsaber after filming was complete on “The Last Jedi.”
“I steal stuff from movies and go and pray to myself or whatever,” Driver said with a laugh.
Another rumor that Driver validated was that he initially turned down the “Star Wars” sequel trilogy. “I wanted to think about it. It was when we were shooting ‘Girls,’ and I was a fan of ‘Star Wars’ and I didn’t want it to be bad,” the actor said.
Driver also took the show host through the steps that led to him signing for the role of Kylo Ren, which, not surprisingly, was a process that was shrouded in secrecy. He said “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens” co-writer and director J.J. Abrams verbally guided him through the steps of the film, but he wasn’t allowed to see the script until he signed on to do the film. Driver also remarked how he didn’t feel the path of Kylo went in the exact direction he was told it would when he initially signed on to star in the film trilogy.
