Adam Driver has traveled from a galaxy far, far away to “House Of Gucci.”

Although the film has received mixed reviews from critics, many did praise the chemistry that he shared with Lady Gaga, who portrayed his wife on screen.

Some critics have had some harsh things to say about the accents in the film, especially Driver’s. One dialogue coach who ranked the “House of Gucci” accents from worst to best said that Driver was “effortlessly American” in his portrayal of Maurizio Gucci and “extremely stiff with his gesticulation.”

Although the film isn’t shaping up to be the major Oscar contender that many thought it would be, Driver still managed to get away with some mementos from the Gucci set.

What Did Driver Take From The ‘House Of Gucci’ Set?

Driver famously wore a Burberry suit to the first screening of “House of Gucci” in London, while the rest of the cast was decked in Gucci from head to toe. Co-star Jared Leto even went as far as to wear different colors of the same Gucci suit for several premieres.

In a recent interview, Driver revealed that he took a pair of Gucci shoes from the set. He also thought about taking a belt but decided against it.

Although Driver has been in some pretty high-profile projects over the past few years - which include Academy Award nominations for “BlacKkKlansman” and “Marriage Story” - he still doesn’t see Gucci as fitting into his laid-back ensemble.

“I thought I could pull them off,” Driver admitted. “But then, when you get back to reality, you’re like, ‘Oh, I’m not wearing these.’”

Although he may not be fond of wearing Gucci when he’s not on set, there are a few other things Driver did admit to wearing in his free time.

What Did Driver Bring Back From The Galaxy Far, Far Away?

Adam Driver received worldwide recognition for his portrayal of the villainous Kylo Ren and the redeemed Ben Solo in the “Star Wars” sequel trilogy from 2015 to 2019.

He admitted that he had taken “lots of stuff” over the course of the three films, including two helmets and a lightsaber.

“I wear my helmets when I drive, just to confuse people,” he joked.

Driver revealed that he tries to take something from every movie that he’s cast in. He admitted to taking the machete that he killed zombies with from the set of the horror-comedy “The Dead Don’t Die,” in which he starred opposite comedy legend Bill Murray.

In addition to taking a lot of pictures, Driver confessed that he took several items from the sets of his two other 2021 films: “Annette” and “The Last Duel.” Allegedly, he took home a suit of armor after appearing in the Ridley Scott medieval flick.

So what does Driver do with all of the mementos that he has collected from his past films?

"I keep them in a room and I just pray to myself as an homage to all the things that I've done," he joked.

Driver has a few projects lined up for 2022, including “White Noise,” “65,” and “Yankee Comandante.” After that, though, the “Paterson” actor revealed that he is ready to take a break from acting for a while.

Does that mean no more viral Burberry ads?
