Josh O’Connor discusses queerness of Challengers

After the trailers for Challengers dropped fans were quick to point out that triangles, famously, have three sides.

And despite seeing Tashi (Zendaya) kiss both Art (Faist) and Patrick (O’Connor), previews for the film didn’t show the boys kissing, though some homoerotic banana-munching, semi-nude sauna scenes and Zendaya smiling at something off-screen hinted at such.

Following first reactions to the film, it’s been confirmed that the tennis players do indeed smooch – but speaking to Variety at an event for Challengers (April 17), O’Connor has given his take on whether they’re actually queer.

“Yeah, I think they’re all fluid. I think they all kind of love each other and they’re figuring that out,” O’Connor explained.

“They’re trying to understand where that plays out and how it plays out, and so I don’t know if there’s a queer cut answer to that, but I think that they’re all completely tied [to each other]. They’re all in.”
