Star Wars might bring people from across the world together, but sadly it couldn’t get John Boyega a date. – gizmod
While speaking on The Graham Norton Show, John shared details about a bad dating experience he had right before the release of The Force Awakens. He looked really embarrassed after hearing the question. Boyega said his friend Orlando Bloom (who was also on the show) advised him to “try and secure the love of your life” before the movie came out, because otherwise, it might be harder to make a real connection (later in the future?). So, that’s what Boyega did. He went on a date with a woman in New York without telling her who he was before the date. Sadly, once he told her about himself, things didn’t go too well. Checkout the video below. It is hilarious
“She didn’t know what I did until we were driving through Times Square. She goes ‘What do you do for a living?’ [I] looked up and I said, ‘That.’ It was me over a lightsaber,” Boyega pointed out (picture above for reference).
Apparently, finding out Boyega was starring in the new Star Wars film “affected her stance,” and things ended badly— so much so that Boyega blocked her on his phone. I wonder if blocking the number was necessary… We don’t know exactly what was said. But it’s not all bad, at least Finn and Poe shippers can rest easy knowing he might still be available. You can check out the interview above, it’s a lot of fun (and fellow guest Amy Schumer lands some randy lightsaber jokes as well). The Last Jedi comes out this December.
