Chosen One of the Day: Diego Luna's Dreamy Eyes

Chosen One of the Day Rogue One week continues on SyfyWire Fangrrls. Yesterday was our tribute to lizardman Pao, the background-iest and appreciationless-est character in a movie all about the background characters of the galaxy far far away who don't get enough appreciation. (Holding out for that Wedge Antilles movie.) Today, we turn our affection in a slightly more superficial direction. Zero spoilers for Rogue One, unless you consider it a spoiler that Diego Luna's eyes are dreamy AF.

GUYS.

GUYS.

THIS IS BECOMING A PROBLEM FOR ME.

I always knew, in an abstract sense, that "Hmm, yes, Diego Luna is a very attractive man." I've seen movies he's been in. I know things. I have eyes. But watching Rogue One, in which Luna plays Rebel intelligence officer Cassian Andor, I was hit by an unslakeable thirst. One week on, and that thirst has not abated. Look at that gif. That is ridiculous. For the first time in my life, looking at Diego Luna's sonofagunning eyes, I have found myself thinking the phrase "limpid pools of infinity." I am disgusted with myself. My self-control is gone. I watched a Katy Perry video. Repeating it for the people in the back: I watched Katy Perry video.

Here, I've giffed the most important parts for you:

I have already rewatched Y Tu Mamá También and am perilously - -perilously - -close to watching Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights. And sure, I can dress that up by saying "Oh, but I've actually heard it's a decent romance movie" and "Romola Garai is in it, and you like her!," but I know full damn well what hogwash that is. I am about to watch the Dirty Dancing prequel because Diego Luna's eyes are pretty. What have I become?! And also, Diego Luna is a sorceror.
