“(…) The thing that struck Padmé the most was the look upon Anakin’s face, an expression unlike anything she had ever seen on the Padawan: part rage, part grief, part guilt, and part resignation, even defeat. She knew that Anakin would need her, and soon. But she had no idea of what she might do for him.“

- R.A. Salvatore, Star Wars Episode II - Attack of the Clones.

Suddenly my entire life makes sense.

I’ve been thinking lately… Hayden Christensen doesn’t do a lot of interviews.  But when he does, I don’t see him talking about how he hates Star Wars or how he auditioned for the role of a lifetime and everyone started spewing hate from every platform imaginable, or how he had to come back and finish the trilogy while the entire planet hated his guts and said so to his face.
What I do hear him talking about? How much he loves talking to little kids about Star Wars.  How happy he is to have been a part of it.  How hard he worked, how much fun he had, how much he learned.  While fans are still vomiting hate over a decade later, he seems pretty happy to live quietly on his farm and not retaliate.  If he has any secret desires to Force Choke the fans or the media, he’s been pretty good about letting that go.
Guys, Hayden Christensen is a better Jedi than all of us put together.

“The Darth Vader scenes were the last day of filming — we saved the best for last. Everyone from the crew and the production office came out to bear witness and see Vader again. As I walked past people I knew and was friends with, I watched their reactions. It was phenomenal: There was awe and excitement in their eyes, but there was also a certain level of respect that needed to be paid, and a tinge of fear. As I walked by, they would gasp, and then they would lower their heads and take a couple of steps back-as you would if Vader was passing.”

Happy 35th Birthday Hayden Christensen (born 19. April - Vancouver, Canada)

“All I want is all what my mother wanted for me when she raised me - to be happy. For that, I don’t need to be in a relationship. I don’t need to have a certain level of respect. I just want to care very much about what I do and be kind to everyone in the process. It’s important that I can feel that. That’s happiness.”
