When Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened in theaters, fans all around the world had the awesome opportunity to revisit the beloved franchise once more. The film picks up some thirty years after Return of the Jedi and introduced us all to a relatively unknown actor at the time, John Boyega. He played the disaffected stormtrooper, Finn. The role launched the British actor into the mega-star stratosphere, seemingly overnight. You’d think this lucky once-in-a-lifetime opportunity would only help his love life.
The reality has been a tad trickier.
On a recent visit to The Graham Norton Show, John recounted what it’s been like to come into fame and how it has affected his love life.
He said that there have been some surprises when it comes to meeting women.
Poor guy! Even superstars are prone to heartbreak.
When the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer first came out, many people criticized the film for showing a black actor in a stormtrooper uniform. When asked by The New York Times about how that made him feel, John had the most grounded response.
Well John, we think you’ll find another date in no time!
