…It’s really quite simple:
1. Natalie Portman (in my opinion) really seemed out of her element in the role of Padme Amidala. The sappy scenes with her and Anakin Skywalker seemed more like a bad soap opera than anything remotely believable (I think I actually was rolling my eyes a lot during their scenes because my eye muscles feel really stretched out today ;-)). I would much rather have seen myself in this role and Joaquin Phoenix in the role of Anakin .
2. And the number two reason I should have played the roll of Padme is I look really super fantastic with side hair buns, as any fool can clearly – clearly – see in this photo. Oh well, I guess I could consider a hair bun role in Star Wars IV if I’m not too busy with my day job.
PS…here’s a shout out to Frosty for helping me with my buns the day the above photo was taken…that sounds funny, but you know what I mean.
