'The Force Awaken's' Oscar Isaac and Daisy Ridley Bring You Christmas Cheer
Well this is sort of lovely, during a day of promotional tweeting for the new Star Wars movie, a fan asked about the non-Force related talents of Oscar Isaac and Daisy Ridley. Specifically their singing abilities. They were, of course, happy to oblige fans with a short snippet of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” that will just melt you.
The only downside is that no one asked Isaac to also demonstrate his dancing abilities.
Yes, I will bring that up every time I’m writing about Oscar Isaac. I don’t see how you could expect anything else.
(Note: There are some strong feelings out there on the topic of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” My feeling is that the lyrics are a relic of a time when women had to make excuses to justify their desires instead of owning them. Ex: *Two snowflakes fall* “OH NO, THE ROADS WILL BE UNPASSABLE, BETTER STAY!” *takes sip of punch* “MY GOODNESS, THERE IS ALCOHOL IN THIS? I AM TIPSY. BEST NOT TO DRIVE.” Given that there are few well-known and loved Christmas duets out there and that “Fairytale of New York” by the Pogues also features some questionable lyrics, I’m not bothered by the choice to sing this.)
