Becoming famous hasn't necessarily helped John Boyega's love life.
The "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" actor recently appeared on "The Graham Norton Show," where he revealed how his role in the blockbuster once sank a date for him. It's a funny little tale, but the presence of Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn, and Orlando Bloom made it even better. The fellow actors added to the fun with amusing commentary, especially Schumer, who couldn't resist a joke about reacting to "a guy with a huge saber."
As Boyega's dating disaster story goes, he had taken a woman out in New York City. Everything was going well until she asked what he does, just as they happened to be driving through Times Square, where his Star Wars promotional images were on display. He answered the question by showing her, and unfortunately, that put a damper on their date.
"That picture in itself just kind of affected her," he said, confirming that the relationship didn't go anywhere.
Alas, they were no Han and Leia (pre-split, that is).
Watch the hilarious group discuss the story, among other topics, below.
