Why did he hate Star Wars so much?
>>
>>64603667
Guinness was a cunt IRL
>>
>>64603667
because he fell to the dark side of the force and fell under the Emperor's influence

what kind of question even is that? he was like a brother to him, he even said that.

He was just unhappy that this sci fi flick was overshadowing his very impressive portfolio of Kino and saddly it did ;.; people would stop him and say "oo can we get an autograph from obi wan!" Poor Guinness.
>>
>>64603667
He envied others' spinning abilities.

But in reality he didn't, he was just peeved that he became forever known as old Ben. And he considered Star Wars to be insanely too popular.
>>
>>64603667
He acted in great movies like Lawrence of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago among others

But people just remember him from being in that one movie with the laser stick fights

If Alec had lived long enough for TFA do you think he would have come back?
>>
>>64603886
>he starred in two overrated flicks and he was mda people only remember him from being in that other overrated flick
>>
>>64603937
Cameo, possibly. I'm hoping we get a glimpse of him somehow.
>>
>>64603886
>>64603923
Probably because he LOOKS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
I had no idea those were the same fucking person.
>>
>>64603667
Guiness hated the material, in comparison to the writing in his other roles.
>>
>>64603937
Absolutely not. He had grown to hate Star Wars very deeply and the franchise has only gotten worse with time.

HAVE YOU HATED /TV/ FOR THE PAST 3 WEEKS?

HAVE YOU HATED IT BECAUSE PEOPLE POST THREADS ABOUT EVERY LITTLE STAR WARS THING?

ARE YOU SICK OF THESE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT STAR WARS, AND I'M PRETTY SURE YOU ARE?

NOW YOU KNOW WHY ALEC GUINESS HATED STAR WARS, PEOPLE WOULD WANT TO TALK TO HIM ABOUT STAR WARS NON-STOP, JUST LIKE ALL THE FUCKING PEOPLE ON /TV/ WANT TO TALK ABOUT STAR WARS NON-STOP

JUST

I wouldn't mind if he plays a force ghost or whatever, but that'd be crossing a line.
>>
>>64604236
Its even a remote possibility too considering what george did to anikin.
>>
Let's see he starred in Lawrence of Arabia and Bridge Over the River Kwai only to be remembered most in some shitty flick

It be like if DDL accepted some small role in capeshit today and only be remembered for that
>>
Luke, did I ever tell you about the time I was one of the most respected actors in the world, performing in renowned films such as Kind Hearts and Coronets, The Bridge on the River Kwai and A Passage to India? I even got an Oscar and a Knighthood in recognition for my excellence in my field. Then a nerd named George Lucas begged me to play a space wizard in his sci-fi/fantasy flick. I took it to be nice, even though it meant saying lines such as "Only a master of evil Darth". Somehow, despite Lucas's bungling, it was a huge success and he roped me into appearing in the two equally idiotic sequels. Now that's those movies are the only thing people remember me for. George Lucas was a bad friend.

I meant a 4s ghost in VIII or IX, but yeah that's fucked.

He was a real patrician so he wish he could had starred in the Prequels instead
>>
>>64603667
>star in pretentious hipster shit
>win an Oscar
>be knighted
>end up being most remembered for an inane children's sci-fi movie that he hated

JUST
>>
>>64604421

Cool, I had no idea who he was prior to Star Wars or how he was pretentious enough to call himself a Sir
>>
FUCK
>>
>>64604421
kek
>>
>>64603667

He didn't. He appreciated it for what it was, a low-brow childish fantasy.

What he hated was the cult following it created.

Why do actors thing they're so high and mighty?

They literally play pretend for our amusement.

He should be glad he's so well remembered.
>>
>>64603667
He foresaw the fate of the Star Wars franchise.
>>
>>64604176
I wouldn't mind that.
>>
>>64603667
>Why did he hate Star Wars so much?

he didn't

but like the present crowd here, the rest of his work and movies were overshadowed by it strictly because of its popularity, not because of its quality

at least 3 of his other movies are much much better than star wars
>>
cause he was a fuccboi
>>
>>64605424

Honestly Alec Guinness wasn't particularly pretentious about his work, I think the fact that he even agreed to be in Star Wars despite his great filmography shows that, I just think he was confused as to the popularity of the movie.

Especially considering from his perspective, he got to experience how horribly disorganized everything was, the (for that time) strange interpretation of science-fiction and the crappy dialogue. After all, it's no secret what a mess Star Wars was before it was saved in editing.
>>
>>64604653
you dont just call yourself sir and you become a sir you faggot
>>
He actuay spoke we of them in his diary, and thought other than the dialogue they were good. But got annoyed by that being all he was known for in his later years
>>
>>64605698

>from his perspective Star Wars was evil
>>
>>64605698
R.O.T.H.S.C.H.I.L.D.
>>
>>64604893
this is so dumb yet I can't help but laugh every time
>>
>>64604653
He was knighted, you cunt.

Watch Kind Hearts and Coronets and stop being such a dimwitted child.
>>
>>64603667
It wasn't for him.
