    Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, McGregor shared: “I found it quite hard. For it to come out and get knocked so hard was personally quite difficult to deal with. And also, it was quite early in my career. I didn’t really know how to deal with that. I’d been involved with things that just didn’t make much of a ripple, but that’s different from making something that makes a negative ripple.”

    Christensen joined the Star Wars prequels in Attack of the Clones, while in his late teens, facing the backlash as he came to terms with his newfound fame.

    The young Dark Vader star said: “When the films came out and the critics were very critical, of course that was a difficult thing — because you care so much about this thing that you’ve invested so much of yourself into. So, for sure, that’s challenging.”
