It seems like yesterday that Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced us to a new set of heroes: Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron. And immediately, many fans wanted to see Finn and Poe's bromance escalate to the next level — would they continue to be just friends or something much more?
Soon enough, fan artworks followed, depicting the two as a couple. One half of the dynamic duo, John Boyega, has finally spoken out about them. At the D23 Expo last weekend, the actor told Variety:
"[There are] some pictures of me and my boy, you know, Oscar Isaac's butt naked in showers and stuff. Now, we personally don't do that, but, you know, I am open, free to anyone having their expression of art. This is all art at the end of the day, isn't it? So, it's nice, it's nice, whoever."
Boyega's response is accepting and funny. However, it doesn't come close to the late Carrie Fisher's take on Finn and Poe's romance. While hosting a gala at the Just for Laughs festival last year, this is what Fisher had to say on the subject:
"It seems like people are really embracing the new characters. In fact, the big question people ask me about Star Wars now is, 'Are Finn and Poe gay lovers?' And really, how the f**k would I know? My second husband left me for a man, so my gaydar isn’t exactly what you’d call Death Star level quality."
We'll have to wait a little longer to find out whether Finn and Poe do end up together. Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters December 15th, 2017.
