Oscar Isaac caused quite the stir when a photo of him eating flaming lime Cheetos with a pair of chopsticks went viral.
“I’m a sophisticated gentleman,” said Isaac while visiting “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Tuesday, “so I didn’t want to get the powder on my fingers.”
The “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” star’s meme-worthy picture sparked countless fan recreations. Going through some of Kimmel’s favourite fan cosplays, Isaac explained how the memorable photo came together.
“I really was into flaming lime Cheetos, which at the time you couldn’t get on the East Coast,” he added. “It’s just from here. Chili-lime, it’s a very Latino kind of thing.”
Isaac, 38, was suffering through a cold when the snap was taken, and his impressive moustache was for his role in HBO’s “Show Me a Hero” miniseries.
The Guatemalan-American actor will next star in the science fantasy action horror film “Annihilation” alongside Natalie Portman and Gina Rodriguez.
