Samuel L. Jackson Loved Opening A Can Of Jedi Whup-A**

22 November 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie star Samuel L. Jackson can't keep quiet about filming the latest Star Wars (1977) prequel - because he got to swing a light saber. The actor was disappointed not to have any fight scenes in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999), but says the new sc-fi fight scene is one of his highlights as an actor. He says, "There's like nothing in this room but a blue screen and George Lucas says, 'OK, you're in a big battle now, ' and I'm like, 'How many people?' 'A lot - and there's a big thing coming at you, ' 'How big?' 'Pretty big.' "So there I am swinging this thing around until George says 'Cut, ' and I'm one of the best light saber swordsmen in the universe." »

Forever Leia

20 November 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

It's over 20 years since Star Wars (1977) first hit screens - and actress Carrie Fisher still can't shake off the role that made her famous. Carrie, who played Princess Leia in the movie classic, has since written best-selling books and acclaimed films - yet people still only know her as the rebel princess. Carrie, whose new television film These Old Broads (2001) (TV) stars Elizabeth Taylor, says, "I was 19 when I was Leia. I had no idea what was going to happen. What would I have thought if someone had said, `You're going to get famous, but you're going to get weird kind of famous.' I was in New Zealand recently on one of those bungee catapults which I was far too old to go on, and just as we were about to be launched into the air, the 21-year-old girl sitting next to me said, 'Aren't you Princess Leia?' and I was like, 'Not now'." »

Ben Affleck Flattered By Rumors Of Romance With Carrie Fisher

15 November 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Ben Affleck (photos) is flattered by gossip which links him romantically to Star Wars (1977) actress Carrie Fisher (photos) - and wants to "canoodle" with her. Ben admits he fell in love with the 44- year-old actress when he saw her as Princess Leia in the first Star Wars (1977) trilogy, and he's thrilled with reports of a romance. He says, "They used this word 'canoodling'. I don't know what it means exactly, but it's great. Everyone has a Princess Leia thing. I mean that whole show is slightly perverse. Carrie is very nice and I'll gladly canoodle with her. But the truth is she was trying to fix me up with her daughter who's about eight." Affleck admits he has to laugh at his reported romances - otherwise he'd be crazy thinking about the press' perception of him. He adds, "I've been linked with Britney Spears (photos) and now Carrie - I can't tell if I've got a Lolita complex or an Oedipus complex." »
