Be ready to swoon because the internet’s favorite boyfriend, Oscar Isaac, recently said the most crush-worthy thing ever!
Isaac, currently on the press tour promoting the upcoming installment in the Star Wars franchise, The Last Jedi in which he reprises his role as the X-wing fighter pilot, Poe Dameron, gave the comment after a reporter asked about the impact of a Han Solo’s (Harrison Ford) death in The Force Awakens. John Boyega (“Finn”) and Daisy Ridley (“Rey”) both answered, with Ridley saying that perhaps her character is the most affected, and she has to deal with that loss while also learning new things and taking on new adventures.
Referring to a question asked earlier at the press conference, addressing Ridley’s comment, Isaac stated, “An interesting thing, going back to the question about the strong women in it [The Last Jedi], because, I think, as a guy, I’d like to say that, for me, the most formative people in my life have been women.”
The actor, whose Guatemalan mother Eugenia, died earlier this year, continued, “that has shaped my destiny so much, and so, to see that reflected in the film is really, really a beautiful thing, and it does. It is more true to real life, and what’s happening now, and what’s always happened which is, you know, they’re the ones, you know, that shape you.”
So, not only is he good looking and super talented, but he’s a feminist too! Supporting women in film, while also praising the strong women that raised him…is there anything sexier than that? I don’t think so. His mami clearly raised him right.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters on December 15th.
