John Williams Claims He’s Never Watched Any Star Wars Films

At this point, it’s rare to find someone who hasn’t watched Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, let alone the original Star Wars films, let alone never ventured into a galaxy far, far away at least once. It’s doubly rare, however, to find out that someone who worked on the films themselves hasn’t seen them, either. Yet, if we’re to take the word of John Williams, that’s the case with the legendary film composer.

Indeed, even though Williams’ music is as iconic to the franchise as Darth Vader, lightsabers and, well, stars, the man claims he’s never seen any of the films that, in part, made him into a household name. He confesses as much during a recent interview with The Mirror:

He also revealed the budgets of all his films: “Budgets for past movies: The Groomsmen 3 Million, Purple Violets 4 Million, She’s the One 3 Million, Sidewalks of NY 1 Million,

Edward Burns On His New $25K Film and the 'Dogsh*t' Movies That Made It Possible

In the 15 years that have passed since he launched his career as a multi-hyphenate with the Sundance hit The Brothers McMullen, Edward Burns has continued to write, direct, act in and produce his own projects while appearing in other people's films. Some of those acting gigs have been great (Saving Private Ryan) and, let's face it, many have not, but they've all allowed Burns the luxury of making his own personal projects every few years (She's the One, No Looking Back, Sidewalks of New York, Ash Wednesday, Looking for Kitty, The Groomsmen, Purple Violets).
