Oscar Isaac practiced selfie face

Oscar Isaac practiced his "selfie face" ahead of the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' premieres.

The 36-year-old actor - who plays X-wing pilot Poe Dameron in the long-awaited movie - admits he looks "cross-eyed and duck-lipped" in photos he takes of himself so needs to up his game when posing with fans on the red carpet.

Speaking at the European premiere of the movie in London's Leicester Square earlier this evening, he said: "I've been practicing [my selfie face], it's kind of cross-eyes and like duck-lipped."

Though he already has a successful movie career behind him, Oscar has found he gets recognised more now thanks to his role in the iconic film series.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I have occasionally noticed that I'm being recognised a bit more. I can blend a little bit easier so it's not so bad for me."

Plot details on the movie have been sworn to secrecy, so Oscar - who was joined on the red carpet by co-stars including Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Lupita Nyong'o and Daisy Ridley -is feeling relieved it finally gets released this week as he's very proud of the film.

He said: "I'm very happy to share it finally. We had a great time on set led by J.J. Abrams and his enthusiasm - we joked around a lot, we kept it light and I think that energy and open-heartedness translates to the screen."

And despite speculation 'Episode VIII' will start shooting in the next few months, the actor insists he has no idea.

He said: "Really? Is that what you've heard? Well that's exciting!"
