Adam Driver walks out of interview when Marriage Story clip is played

According to the Daily Beast, the 36-year-old walked out of an interview earlier this month after expressing irritation at the idea of listening to a clip of himself singing "Being Alive" from Noah Baumbach's new Netflix movie Marriage Story.

Sources confirm to Variety that Driver, who was recording his side of the radio interview at NPR's NY offices while Gross was at Fresh Air's main studio in Philadelphia, left mid-interview after Fresh Air played a clip of the actor singing an emotional rendition of 'Being Alive, ' one of the most memorable scenes from Noah Baumbach's Marriage Story.

"We don't really understand why he left", Danny Miller, exec producer of Fresh Air, said in a statement.

Driver admitted in an interview in The New Yorker from October this year that it was his performance in the Coen brothers movie Inside Llewyn Davis in 2013, in which he played musician Al Cody, which turned him off ever watching his own performances.

Driver voiced his disdain for listening to his work when he appeared on Fresh Air in 2015.

Driver stars in Marriage Story as Charlie Barber, a successful New York-based director of avant garde theater who's going through a divorce with his wife Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) who regularly stars in his productions.

Adam Driver apparently hates the sound of his own voice so much that he walked out of an interview when the host played a clip of him from Marriage Story.

Adam Driver in Star Wars. "Yeah, no, I've watched myself or listened to myself before, then always hate it", Driver said at the time.

"We don't really understand why he left", Fresh Air's Miller told the Daily Beast. When forced to watch 2015's The Force Awakens, which features Driver's first appearance as the now-iconic Star Wars villain Kylo Ren, he said he felt physically ill: "I just went totally cold, because I knew the scene was coming up where I had to kill Han Solo, and people were, like, hyperventilating when the title came up, and I felt like I had to puke". "Wish I could change it, but you can't", he added.

The Netflix original film now has a sterling 95 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and Adam and Scarlett have both received widespread praise for their performances, as has Baumbach for his script and direction.

Marriage Story is streaming on Netflix now. "And I think I have, like, a tendency to try to make things better or drive myself and the other people around me insane with the things I wanted to change or I wish I could change".

"It's in a box, but it's hung in the box", he explained.
