John Boyega's home comforts

John Boyega's home comforts

John Boyega doesn't want to move to Los Angeles.

The 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' star insists he will never leave his native London as he wants to remain close to his family and friends.

He said: "There is no need to move to LA. I will stay in London. This is my home. I've been to LA and spent lots of time in LA. I like going back and forth. But I like being here because of my family and friends.

"Sometimes I get a bit hungry and I want the home-grown food so I just put on a big hat and go to Peckham."

And whilst his leading role in the science fiction franchise has seen the 24-year-old actor catapult to fame, he insists his life is mainly the same as it was before.

He added: "There are two sides to my life. You break it up. There is your personal life which is normal. My life is very normal. But I don't use buses, I drive. I like to drive my Audi A1. I really don't feel like a massive star. I really don't, and the more you don't the better. I'm just happy working."

However, John is disappointed his role as Finn in the 2015 movie hasn't helped him secure more attention from women.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I really don't get more attention. I'm quite disappointed with that. I thought my face mathematically added up. I'm going to use some chat up lines like 'Hey, I'm Force sensitive'. I'll write a book about it."
