What is Hayden Christensen Up To? Find Out What the Former 'Stars Wars' Star is Doing Now!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is hitting theaters this week on Friday (December 16) and you may be wondering what the former Star Wars star Hayden Christensen is up to these days!

In case you forgot, the 35-year-old actor starred in Star Wars Episodes II and III as Anakin Skywalker, who later turned into Darth Vader.

Hayden has maintained a low profile out of the spotlight since Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith in 2005.

Since then, he’s worked on a few films – most notably Jumper in 2008 alongside longtime girlfriend Rachel Bilson.

In 2014, Hayden and Rachel welcomed their first child together – daughter Briar Rose – and the family have continued living a quiet life out of the spotlight.

Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Hayden would not be making a cameo in the new Rogue One film – which is set between Episodes III and IV of Star Wars while the Empire is in full reign over the universe.

According to his IMDb page, Hayden is currently working on two new films - Numb, at the Edge of the End and First Kill – so it looks like we’ll see more of Hayden in 2017!

Also pictured inside: Hayden arriving at LAX airport on Monday (December 12) in Los Angeles.

Hayden Christensen Reveals Why He Disappeared From Hollywood After 'Star Wars' Prequels

Hayden Christensen is opening up about why he essentially left the Hollywood spotlight after starring in the Star Wars prequels years ago.

“I guess 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,” the 34-year-old actor recently told the Los Angeles Times. “I didn’t want to go through life feeling like I was just riding a wave.”

“You can’t take years off and not have it affect your career,” Hayden added. “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.’”
