Revenge of the Sith | Behind the Scenes | Obikin is REAL
“What I’ve enjoyed specifically is that we’ve created a relationship on-screen that mirrors our relationship off-screen and we both get on terribly well. But we’ve made an incredible bond and a real friendship there, so that there is something important that’s lost.” - Ewan McGregor
‘Real Men Cry’: Photographer Sam Taylor-Wood photographed some of Hollywood’s leading actors in an intimate and rare moment. Taylor-Wood said, ’Some of the men cried before I even finished loading the camera’. Pictured in order here are some of her subjects, Hayden Christensen, Daniel Craig, Ben Stiller, Jude Law, Michael Masden, and the late and great Robin Williams.
The epic duel between Anakin and Obi-Wan now begins - the climax of the prequel trilogy - but their encounter starts out humourously, with nearly every take ending with Christensen and McGregor joking, fake fighting, or fake dying.
I have an apartment on the 22nd floor of a high rise and got out of bed, went out on the porch and stood in the morning breeze for probably an hour. I didn’t know what to feel, it was so overwhelming. When I came back in, my roommate was standing there and I just made a gesture of raising a lightsaber. He gave me a huge hug, jumped on me and started screaming profanities. He was a DJ and we’ve got a turntable at our place, so I called my mom and my roommate put on the Star Wars album and turned the volume up full, so that was the first thing she heard when she picked up the phone. She started crying and I heard this domino effect all around my house of people screaming.
