The actor enjoys an old school fitness regime and a big breakfast
Getting into shape for Hollywood action movies can be a challenge for many actors, but for Adam Driver, an ex Marine, punishing workouts are a walk in the park. “I have to move violently once a day or I’ll lose my mind,” says Driver, who trained hard to play Kylo Ren in the Star Wars franchise.
Driver, 37, displayed his impressive physique in a set of daring photographs to mark his unveiling as the face of Burberry’s new fragrance Hero. Made by perfumer Aurélien Guichard, the vibrant and warm scent combines bergamot, juniper and black pepper.
It’s the first time Burberry Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci has had input with a fragrance. “I wanted Hero to encapsulate modern masculinity, to play on the essence of primal human and animal instincts, channelling the duality between strength and sensitivity,” he said.
When training, Driver eats a high protein diet including six eggs for breakfast, followed by a chicken breast. A rigid weights programme is supplemented by some of his favourite exercises such as dynamic stretching, plyometrics, the ab wheel, a good old-fashioned plank, squat thrusts, deadlifts and bicep curls as well as jogs around Manhattan where he lives.
