    Adam Driver plays Adam Sackler, Hannah's aloof boyfriend, in the HBO series Girls. In an interview with GQ, the actor talks about watching the show and way people have reacted to his character.

    On his sex scenes:

    "'Cause the thing about those sex scenes is that we work to make sure you learn something about the characters—it's not just sex for sex's sake. The more I focus on pushing the story forward, the less I'm aware that I'm saying things like 'Step on my balls' and 'Let me shoot on your face.'"

    On his character:

    "After the first couple of episodes, people started coming up to me and saying, 'You're an asshole, but I like you.' But as the show unfolded, people were saying more flattering things. I was surprised by how important it was for people to decide whether I was likable. It's good that they like my character, but it was never part of the dialogue."

    On what his take on the show is:

    "You know, I haven't seen any of the actual episodes. I don't have cable."
