C-3PO Seems Like a Douche Even Off Camera
Apparently, playing a douchebag robot is rubbing off on the actor. Anthony Daniels, the dude who has played the voice of C-3PO in Star Wars since 1977, is talking smack about everything Star Wars. He's even pissed off Disney.
First, he said the secrecy involving Star Wars Episode 7 has been "ludicrous." Then, he said the plot of Episode 7 made him "glaze over." Now, he is ripping on Mark Hammil for "not aging well." “Poor Mark. He was a young lovely looking lad when he was first Luke Skywalker and now… well…”
He already pissed Disney off by posting on Twitter how he met a certain actor. “Immediately I received a message from Disney: ‘Remove the tweet! You’re not allowed to say that!’ Honestly. It’s a kind of Kremlin attitude." Get the full story here.
He and the actor who plays R2-D2, Kenny Baker can't stand each other. Baker has previously dubbed Daniels the ‘rudest man I’ve ever met’. “He’s not actually on the set,” Daniels added. “I haven’t seen him for years. His name is on the credits as a sort of… I don’t know, a good luck charm, a courtesy. He’s a talisman.”
The only person he had anything good to say about was Harrison Ford.
I see a new C-3PO voice in the future. Seriously, the least endearing of all the Star Wars characters for me. The only thing I have ever wanted to do to C-3PO was cause him harm. He is a metaphor of technology and how frustrating it can be. Like all technology, something better is waiting to replace him. Not having Anthony Daniels in the next 2 movies will NOT ruin it for me.
