Oscar Isaac Explains His Cheetos & Chopsticks Meme on 'Jimmy Kimmel': 'I'm A Sophisticated Gentleman'

Oscar Isaac stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday (February 13) and finally addressed the infamous photo of him going around online that has become a beloved meme.

In 2016, a photo of the 38-year-old Star Wars star sporting a mustache and eating Crunchy Flamin’ Hot Lime Cheetos with chopsticks went viral.

“I had a bad cold. I really was into flaming lime Cheetos, which at the time, you couldn’t get on the East Coast,” Oscar told Jimmy. “It’s just from here. Chili lime, it’s a very Latino kind of thing.”

“So I just did that and you know, I’m a sophisticated gentleman, so I didn’t want to get the powder on my fingers,” Oscar continued. “So I went for the chopsticks.”

Oscar also talks about making his new sci-fi/horror movie Annihilation and what it was like shooting Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the same time.
