Oscar Isaac played Poe Dameron in the recent Star Wars trilogy and he’s only just opened up about the fan reaction to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
The final film in the recent Star Wars trilogy wasn’t overly well received by Star Wars fans and critics.
There was a pretty big backlash against the movie and it ended up having a rather poor score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker sits at 52% on the website, whereas Star Wars: The Last Jedi currently stands at 91%.
The Rise of Skywalker is actually the lowest rated Star Wars film on Rotten Tomatoes.
So, Isaac was talking to MTV News’ Josh Horowitz on the Red Carpet at the Oscars, and he asked him to comment of the film’s reviews.
Horowitz began by asking Isaac whether he was surprised by the backlash against the film.

Not really. You know, it was the same on the movie before that as well. You know – it means a lot to people, so.
This sounds pretty non-commital, but Isaac then delivered a little bit of a joke.
Yeah, look. Was there some crying in the shower? Yes!
Isaac does have a reputation of joking around, and it really does seem as though the backlash against the latest Star Wars movie didn’t really affect him.
The actors must be used to it by now.
There seems to have been a backlash against every single Star Wars movie that’s come out in the last ten years.
The only Star Wars film that seems to be unanimously loved by fans was Rogue One.
What do you make of this and are you surprised by Isaac’s reaction?
