4 Actors Who Were Broken Emotionally And Professionally After Star Wars Prequels Failure.

3) Hayden Christensen

He could have been the next Harrison Ford after clinching the biggest role in the Star Wars Prequels, but destiny had other plans for him. He was in the prime of his acting career when he was selected to play the iconic Darth Vader’s younger self. He had taken a long hiatus after the backlash of Star Wars and has permanently scaled back his professional career in Hollywood. The only notable movie he did after the Star Wars was “Jumper”. However, even after all the ridicule he had to face due to the failure of Prequels, this is what he had to say ->
“I felt like I had this great thing in Star Wars that provided all these opportunities and gave me a career, but it all kind of felt a little too handed to me. I didn’t want to go through life feeling like I was just riding a wave.”
On asking about his hiatus and limited involvement in the movies, he told:-
“You can’t take years off and not have it affect your career. But I don’t know — in a weird, sort of destructive way, there was something appealing about that to me. There was something in the back of my head that was like, ‘If this time away is gonna be damaging to my career, then so be it. If I can come back afterward and claw my way back in, then maybe I’ll feel like I earned it.’”


4) Ewan McGregor
We all know that Ewan is a stellar actor, who has given us countless fantastic performances throughout his career, but the failure of prequel didn’t even spared his image in the Hollywood. His acting was questioned, his character of Obi-Wan was rebuked and still is a soft target for the disrespectful internet viral memes. But Ewan is a mature personality, and he took the negativity like a champ and moved ahead in his life. Here is what he has to say about the haters ->
“I watched it once, at the premiere, so I’m not in a good position to judge. They had a tall order, the three films I did. The fans waited so long and wanted to feel like they did when they watched the first film, but they were grown-ups by that time. I don’t mind the criticism. I’ve heard it to my face. The people I meet are the fuckers who want me to sign Star Wars photos so they can sell them on the Internet or the people at premieres who are crushing children against barriers to get me to sign their fucking picture of Obi-Wan Kenobi. They’re not fans—they’re parasitical lowlifes and fucking wankers.”
Do you think Star Wars fans acted like a bully to these artists? Let us know in the comments!
