Here's Why Kylo Ren Was Shirtless In 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'

“Star Wars” fans were prepared to see planets and stars, but no one seemed ready for Kylo Ren’s heavenly body.

Star Wars” fans were prepared to see planets and stars, but no one seemed ready for Kylo Ren’s heavenly body. 

In “The Last Jedi,” First Order wunderkind Kylo (Adam Driver) and scavenger-turned-rebel Rey (Daisy Ridley) experience a telepathic connection fueled, it seems, by the Force. The connection appears suddenly, allowing the pair to communicate across great distances as if they’re in a room together. There’s no fancy-schmancy CGI during these scenes; the shots just get quiet, featuring Rey in one place, and Kylo in another, as they carry on a conversation with each other.

During one of the more unexpected moments of connection, Rey links with Kylo’s mind, while Kylo is shirtless. (Spoiler: This is not the beefcake she was looking for.)

Upon noticing his lack of shirt, an uncomfortable-looking Rey admits she’d “rather not do this right now,” and asks Kylo to put something on. He doesn’t.

And fans were flustered.
