It turns out that playing a stormtrooper in a Star Wars movie doesn’t really help the chances of getting a date these days. John Boyega experienced getting ditched after revealing that he was an actor for Star Wars.
Speaking on the Graham Norton Show, Boyega shared the details about a date gone wrong before the release of The Force Awakens back in 2015. The actor decided to go cruising through the Times Square in New York when he was asked by his date what he did for a living.
“She didn’t know what I did until we were driving through Times Square. She goes ‘What do you do for a living?’ Looked up and I said, ‘That.’ It was me over a lightsaber That was the end of the relationship.”
“I blocked her on my phone. I mean, that picture in itself just affected her kind of stance.”
