Actor Adam Driver shocked the audience at a Q&A with his candid reply to a “rude” question about his new film.

The actor plays Enzo Ferrari in Ferrari, which is about the Italian motor racing driver and, on Sunday (12 November), he attended a screening at Camerimage Film Festival in Poland.

Driver, who is also an executive producer of the film, was asked by an audience member: “What do you think about [the] crash scenes? They looked pretty harsh, drastic and, I must say, cheesy for me. What do you think?”

The actor did not hold back with his reply, telling the person: “F*** you? I don’t know. Next question.”

In footage of the moment, which is being circulated online, gasps could be heard from other audience members as well as stifled laughter.


Driver is being praised for his response, with may calling out the audience member for asking such a “rude” question. One such person is the actor’s Star Wars – The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, who shared the clip while writing: “My man.”

Director Phil Hawkins added: “Why people have to try and sound smart/rude/opinionated at Q&A’s is beyond me. Ask a question and be respectful. If you hated the movie shut yer cake hole.”

Ferrari is the next film from Heat and Miami Vice director Michael Mann. It premiered at Venice Film Festival in September, receiving a six-minute standing ovation that left Driver “fighting back tears”.

The year before, another of his films, Leos Carax’s Annette, received a similarly lengthy standing ovation at Cannes Film Festival, during which he appeared to grow so bored, he lit up a ciagrette as everybody applauded around him.
