Adam Dreyfu: Behind the dazzling, he just wants to be a forgotten invisible man
Before starring in “Star Wars”, Adam Dreyfu never thought that he would be recognized by a neighbor’s child in a Brooklyn resident building one day. Now when they see Adam, they will greet him enthusiastically:”Early, Kylo Ren!”He quickly accepted this transcendental character label, and forced himself to get up to respond to the child’s friendly greetings:” Good morning, now Kylo Ren needs a cup of coffee.”This role has changed his life trajectory for six years, and has affected many children. Even his” son “in” Marriage Story “is a loyal fan of Kylo Ren.Put on a full set of equipment to beg for sugar.”Marriage Story” not only allowed him to appoint Oscar to compete in major international film imitations, but also won the personal praise of Oscar’s best actor Joaquin Phoenix, and was also praised by Martin Scorsese as “the most in this generationOne of the outstanding actors. “But these fame and fortune were never pursued by him. He hoped that he would live like an invisible man, enjoy the New Yorker time with his wife, and gradually take responsibility for his father, and began to learn to adjust his life rhythm.Try to live a normal life.In the concept of this former naval soldier, the individual is always insignificant. What matters is what you bring to the team, to the group, to the world.He always feels that he is not doing well enough, and is always on the way to make the world a better and more tolerant.Running away from home alone in Hollywood, when he was halfway home when he was 7 years old, Adam Dreyfu ‘s parents divorced, and he followed his mother from San Diego, California, to Mishawaka, Indiana.This is a very traditional American town. Adam ‘s family is also a devout Christian. Even his mother as an assistant lawyer chose to remarry with the Baptist pastor, but he did not like religion.The bondage, even in such an environment, is a little difficult to understand.He stayed away from his biological father and could not have a good relationship with his stepfather. He entered a state of missing fatherhood early; if he did not want to study, it was difficult to get a satisfactory result for his mother. This also led to his continued low at home, evenPay the rent at home.At that time, the only solace in his life was through the church choir, but the most concerned people in the school were always the rugby players and cheerleaders.He and a group of “Hubeng Dog Friends” went into trouble all day, climbed the radio tower, and set fire to nothing. After watching David Finch’s “Fight Club”, he also learned the plot in the movie and established his own fight club.-There are really neighbours and bear children present!After entering high school, Adam began to come into contact with drama and also joined the school’s choir. He was still in the marginal crowd, but the pursuit of art planted a seed in his heart, and there is always some hope in the future.In his senior year, he applied for the prestigious Julia College in New York, and wanted to move from the No. 1 male high school drama club to a broader stage.But he failed, and even dissipated his interest in college.When Adam Dreyfu boarded “The Hollywood Reporter”, his family had lost patience with him and asked him to find a job to support himself and pay the rent for utilities and water. So he tried to sell the vacuum cleaner from door to door and in a basement.The waterproofing company worked as a telemarketer, and these did not mention his enthusiasm for life.In the face of the cold face of his family, he packed all his luggage, including the microwave oven he paid for, and drove into the broken car to Los Angeles.There is always a legend in Hollywood that the poor boy in a small city entangled in Los Angeles with only a few dollars left. With luck, he became famous overnight and turned over.Adam believed, but his car did not.The car broke down in Texas, and all of Adam’s money was spent on repairing the car, but eventually only reached Santa Monica, the west coast starting point of Route 66.The sea breeze on the west coast blew his heart, and he had to go back to his house in a gritty way.At the military barracks, comprehending the commonality of actors and soldiers. In 2001, Adam was 18 years old, and he was full of blood. After 9/11, he was overwhelmed by a sense of mission and chose to join the army to serve the country.He became an ordinary soldier in the 81st platoon of the first battalion of the 1st Battalion of the Marine Corps, stationed in California.”I love the Marines. It is one of the proudest things I have done in my life. It feels great to drive and detonate expensive weapons.”This military passion for weapons became one of the few highlights of his youth.The experience of being a soldier seriously exacerbated his perspective on the world in the future. The barracks is a place that deviates from the real life of ordinary people. There are the harshest disciplines, rigid and painful training, but there are also unity forces and common forces that ordinary people can’t imagineCollective consciousness.But many years later Adam recalled his years as a soldier. The pride of using expensive weapons and the pain of training have faded. Instead, the glory of humanity among the soldiers has lasted for a long time.”Some friends quit their jobs because they missed their homes, and some of them divorced. We mourned and celebrated together in the military camp.”You can hardly imagine that strangers with accents in different parts of the United States are placed in a fixed area and forced to build trust and learn to cooperate in a short time.”In the lives of ordinary citizens, you can have a few chances to put your best friends into life and death, and you know they will never abandon you.”Fortunately, this kind of team consciousness is applied to the future performance work. In Adam’s opinion, actors and soldiers have a common alternation,” is a group of people trying to complete a greater task than themselves, not about you,, You just play a role, you must also understand your position in the team.Each team has a leader or director. Sometimes they are smart enough, sometimes they are not.You are forced to get close to completely strangers in a short period of time, all of which require self-discipline and self-control.”This self-knowledge shaped Adam that we see now, he always thought he was just a connection among the great works, and when introducing” Marriage Story “won the Australian Aita Award International Award for Best Actor, he read outBefore the title of the entire script, he said this comment: “I do n’t think performance is an internal self-exploration. I think it is an exercise and an understanding of others, not just to understand the role you play.It is also necessary to understand the creative team that is inseparable from the role. When the whole team solves the problem together, the performance is alive for me.”Comrades are in service, but he is practicing” delivery “. Unfortunately, Adam failed to achieve the dream of serving the country’s soldiers. After serving more than twice in the Marine Corps, he broke his sternum in a mountain bike accident.He was carried out of the barracks by a stretcher and bid farewell to the army’s life.”It may be difficult for people who have not participated in the army to be told that they cannot participate in military deployment, which is a kind of destruction for me.”” When his comrades were abroad to protect the motherland, he could do nothing, and twisted and guilt for many years.It was not until later, under the guidance of his comrades, that he was freed from this guilt.He was thrown back into the society, put the military uniform and medal in the closet, and became a civilian again.Those honours also went away, he lost the external armament of certain value, no one knows his past experience on the street, he must rediscover the meaning of existence.At this time, the last straw in Adam’s hand was the Julia College application.”I think with the ranks in the military, all civilian issues are minor issues.”After all, I used to be a navy soldier. I know how to survive. I’m going to be an actor in New York. If I don’t succeed, I sleep in Central Park and turn the trash bin behind the bakery upside down.””Fortunately, this time he was admitted.However, entering Julia College did not close the gap from the barracks to the society. He still has a long and complicated journey to go.When he was practicing performances like “Birth to Himself”, all his friends were in service. This gap is hard to imagine.”I also do n’t know how to apply the knowledge or spiritual things learned in the army to the lives of ordinary people. I need to work, but few jobs have anything to do with shooting and shooting. On the spiritual level, I struggle withLook for meaning, accumulate everything in the army, or follow the tradition, or have a clear practical purpose, and avoid smoking prohibition to avoid exposing the location and so on.”In the eyes of Julia College alumni, this is not handsome and often has a serious look, and the left and right faces are asymmetrical.”The 9-meter big man brought them more oppression and fear, and it happened that Adam was another scoring Scorpio who won scores and failed to achieve his goal.In order to gain weight to meet the character’s physique, he will take roast chicken to class; in order to feel the character’s loneliness, he will move to the paint storage room on the roof of the school for several weeks . This performance habit has continued to this dayDirector J.J. Abrams has revealed that when filming the “Star Wars” series, Adam sometimes focuses on his own world, which makes people feel at a loss.But in fact, he handled the characters and stories internally, not because “the mood is bad now.”Starred in “Patterson” directed by Jim Jarmusch.In fact, this sense of separation from reality has also been projected many times in characters. Before “Star Wars”, Adam often played some weird people who were difficult to integrate into their surroundings because of their own personality or specific reasons.Bus driver who writes poems seriously.He also often played the role of the topic terminator in the interview. He was a helpless person who focused in the spotlight outside the stage. When he last hosted “Saturday Night Live”, he also generously teased that he was polite andAn embarrassing smile, “a distress message is revealed in his eyes”.Building “Art in the Army” with his wife and moving the stage into the barracks was a performance that once again saved this out of place man. He found a resonance with the military experience among dramatists, characters, and works that had no relationship with the military.”So I became less aggressive and aggressive, and I was able to express feelings in words, and how precious a certain language was.”Also during this period, to be precise in the second year of Julia College, he met his future wife Joanne Tucker.It is certain that this lady participated in and helped the process of “domesticization” of Adam’s higher society.”She is a very calm person and will not allow any nonsense.”Joanne is a wise woman in Adam’s mind who learns the wealth of five cars, and is also an authentic New Yorker.She taught him how to integrate New York’s cosmopolitan life, and he shared with her how cool the Rolling Stones are.The two actors combined the characteristics of New Yorkers and soldiers and established a public welfare organization-“Art in the Army” in 2008, referred to as AITAF.Adam Dreyfu and his wife Joanne Tucker.”I think it would be great to create a space and combine these two seemingly different groups to bring people an entertainment event.Based on their profession, explore some thought-provoking topics instead of sketches that force the audience to laugh.比如故事里那个‘被志愿’参军的少年;比如设定里那个回答关于流行文化的问题就能赢得约会的游戏,结果却是和一位已婚且正在孕期的拉拉队队长结伴散步,这些都是In good faith, at the same time there is a little offense.They make the characters presented in the drama no longer domineering, or more approachable.”The most experimental aspect of AITAF is that they have assembled a group of talented theatrical actors, armed them with content, reduced production costs, no set, no rental clothing, no lighting, the stage may be a small theater on Broadway,It may also be the restaurant in the military camp, where there is only a row of actors reading lines, performing physically, and putting all the focus on the content itself.”To show everyone that any environment can become a theater, this is a very powerful thing.Under the eaves with a group of completely strange people, reminding us of our own humanity, reminding us that self-expression has the same value as the shoulder rifle.”Adam and Joanne’s belief in performance is concentrated in every performance of AITAF and continues to this day.They transmit the current social thinking to the army, and share the unique culture of the military camp with the actors.Adam failed to fulfill his mission as a soldier. He infused this belief in serving the people into performances and into a “service” lifelong career.Zeng almost rejected “Star Wars” and never looked at his work because of his enlistment experience, because of his own personality, and Adam treated the world differently than many people, even many actors.In the face of those gains that other people felt were rare, he had almost passed by for several times because of his rejection of reality and fame and fortune.He often discusses existentialism with himself, and asks why he is here and why he wants to do this. What does it have to do with me?What made Adam stand out in Hollywood was the HBO TV series “Urban Girl”, but when he received the opportunity to audition, he couldn’t look down on the TV series at all, thinking that it was a devil that corrupted people’s hearts.Until he learned what kind of writing talent Lena Dunham (director, screenwriter and starring “Urban Girl”) had, “She can make the story precious and sentimental.”He went into the house with a motorcycle helmet when he went to the audition, but was accidentally arrested for Lina ‘s attention. She immediately stood up and played a scene with Adam. The friendship between the two has continued to this day.It also nominated Emmy for three times.”Urban Girl” stills The 2014 “Fat Heart” won Adam the Best Actor Award at the 71st Venice International Film Festival Walpi Cup, he received wider attention in Hollywood, “Star Wars” auditionThe invitation was handed to him.At this time, Adam’s acceptance of performances was still limited to stage plays, independent films, literary films, and TV dramas created by Lena Dunham, and commercial films were not considered at all.”Because you have the ability to restart a classic, it does not mean that there is a need to do so. I have seen too many commercial films to sacrifice characters and stories for visual impact.”But when J.J. Abrams patiently introduced him to the characters and stories, he was attracted and became the first minority in the world to understand and sympathize with Kylo Ren.”He is a spoiled child who is undergoing transformation, he is on the way to finding the true self.The metaphor he carried was to take the power to dominate his own destiny by killing his father.”The movie” Star Wars 9: The Rise of Skywalker “Adam has some very paranoid artist attributes. Sometimes he never revisits his performances, ranging from audition tapes to the film’s premiere.”I’ll find a room to stay by myself, and I will sneak back when it’s over, pretending I never left.”The most exaggerated stress response he has ever made was during the recording of a program. Because the scene played the clip he sang in” Marriage Story “, he went directly out of the studio, leaving a room of staff to look at each other,Executive producer Danny Miller also “doesn’t understand why he left” . and he is always not satisfied with his performance, feeling that his mistakes are stored in the picture; and making him unable to understand the scenes of watching his actingWhat help, “I am familiar enough with this story”.It is hoped that his desire to completely disappear in 2020, or it is difficult to realize that he knows that he needs to maintain a sense of humor as an actor and keep a safe distance from the role.”My job is like a spy, and I have to live my private life in front of the public.When you find yourself in the spotlight, everything becomes very difficult.”He believes that the role of the actor is to hide in the crowd and observe life.” If you walk into a room and someone looks at you, it won’t help “, and always thinks” compared to global problems, everything about meIs trivial. “However, the rising fame and the halo brought by the characters of the work ruined the anonymity he once enjoyed. His work is no longer just about stories and characters, but also the red carpet and awards ceremony.The “Star Wars” series has engraved amazing box office results on his resume, which has completely lost him the safe distance from reality.Looking forward to the new year, he said: “I hope I can disappear in 2020 and be completely forgotten, so that I can accept other very special projects.I usually try to keep a low profile while on vacation, because I can’t stand the attention of others, and I like to be incognito.But the “cruel” reality is that in 2020 he also has a musical “Annette” in collaboration with Marion Codia.The young man started with a choir, the main chorus, sang “Drunken Folk Songs”, confessed with an Italian song at the wedding (“Pregnant Heart”), and hummed lonely in the last year of “Marriage Story””Somebody” kind of stuff.Someone hugs me too tightly, somebody hurts me too deeply, somebody sits in my chair and disturbs me to sleep, so that I can keep me alive.Alive . but lonely is lonely, not alive . “The angel voice player is finally going to act seriously in the song and dance!And after that, there is also the new film “The Last Battle” by Mr. Ridley Scott, who will play with Matt R. Damon and Ben Affleck.The movie “Marriage Story” stills include “Marriage Story”, “Star Wars 9”, “Torture Report” and “Zombies”, which have far-reaching influences in different latitudes, and have the third host “Saturday Night Live” experience.Because a movie has been recognized by more than a dozen different performance categories, 2019 may belong to Adam Dreyfu who does not want to be so dazzling, and it may be 2020.[Adam Dreyfu in their eyes]Some people say that poetry can convey your inner thoughts to you in a more magnificent and majestic way.
