Adam Levine Has “Dream Experience” With ‘Begin Again’

Directed by Once filmmaker John Carney, Begin Again centers on Gretta (Keira Knightley) a struggling musician whose career is nurtured by a former record label executive (Mark Ruffalo). Gretta’s journey, though enlightening, is also bittersweet, as her longtime boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) lands a record deal and eventually ruins their relationship.

During the Begin Again press conference, the Maroon 5 frontman admitted that he could relate to Dave’s situation. “This character was in the midst of becoming successful, so it was a very specific time,” said Levine, who’s also a regular coach on The Voice. “When it happened to me, I was probably tempted by the same things he was. Granted, my story is very different from his, but it was very easy to tap into to experience all these things that we never are expected to experience.”
