    Saw star wars new year day. Didn’t know why leo and Hayden had to mention star wars . And why leo didn’t want to be in it. And why los Angeles Times had to mention Hayden christensen why he didn’t work after he did the movie. Leo didn’t want it and Hayden didn’t audition for better movies. So both got what they wanted. Leo the movie star and Hayden the part-time movie star. Both have bad relationship issues. One can’t keep a girlfriend and the other has a part time ex girlfriend who don’t want to say she has a baby. Can’t say they’re in a relationship until he get to be in a movie. So star wars was great. The hateful 8 wasn’t at all it was no. 3 Jared!
