John Boyega doesn’t understand why he cannot complain about Star Wars when others complain about franchises such as Twilight and seem to get away with it.
While the public is seemingly delighted when Robert Pattinson pokes fun at his Twilight past, John Boyega doesn’t feel that same ability from the Star Wars community. He recently spoke to the reaction he got from the public, saying:
“I just saw a cycle of endless baiting that I wanted to call out. I was kind of surprised that people were so like, ‘Bloody hell . . . [that he was speaking out] I love Robert Pattinson but he gets to talk shit about his films, [so] why can’t I?”
Well, he’s got a point. Plenty of actors have reflected on their less-than-ideal time working on major franchises. Just look at John Boyega’s co-star Oscar Isaac, who has been open about how miserable it was to film X-Men: Apocalypse. Regardless, the response to his words versus that of Twilight alum Robert Pattinson is quite different.
John Boyega’s comments to The Times helps to show what it’s really like working within the world of Star Wars. Or more specifically, what it’s like once you step out of the Millennium Falcon and back into the real world.
Do you think Boyega should be able to speak his mind?
