Hayden Christensen Reunites with 'Star Wars' Family at Celebration in Orlando!

Hayden Christensen looks so handsome while hitting the carpet at the “40 Years of Star Wars” panel held during the 2017 Star Wars Celebration on Thursday (April 13) at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

The 35-year-old actor, who played Anakin Skywalker in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, reunited with co-star Ian McDiarmid and director George Lucas on the panel.

Hayden talked about how he struggled to film the lightsaber battle scenes because he always would make lightsaber noises with his mouth while on set!

“I had been conditioned from a very young age to make the sound effect when I swing the lightsaber… but it was a difficult habit to break,” Hayden said. “I remember on a couple of occasions, George, you would come over after we had filmed a fight scene, and in a very encouraging way you would say, ‘Hayden, that looks really great, but I can see your mouth moving. You don’t have to do that. We add the sound effects in afterwards.’”

“I was just so focused I wasn’t aware I was even doing it,” he added.

Lena Dunham Writes Passionate Essay in Support of Hillary Clinton for President

Lena Dunham poses with famous author Gloria Steinem on the red carpet at the 2016 Matrix Awards held at The Waldorf Astoria on Monday (April 25) in New York City.

The duo were also joined at the event by Katie Couric, Savannah Guthrie, filmmaker George Lucas and businesswoman Mellody Hobson.

Lena just wrote a passionate essay in support of Hillary Clinton for President.

“I’m with Hillary because of her commitment to women’s reproductive health and rights. The quest for reproductive care can be lonely, scary and crushingly expensive. As someone with a chronic reproductive illness who frequently receives treatment from kind, expert doctors and nurses, I believe all women and girls—even if they aren’t on premium cable—deserve that same level of care,” Lena wrote in Time magazine. “I respect Senator Sanders and his supporters. I am turned on by how informed and invigorated they have been throughout this campaign. And there’s a lot in Senator Sanders’s voting record to cheer about. But there’s no comparison between his commitment to fighting for women and Hillary’s. None. This has been her life’s work and she comes at it from every direction.”
