They may be loyal friends 'til the end on screen, but Star Wars faves R2-D2 and C-3PO can't stand each other in real life!
Little person actor - famous for his role as chirpy droid R2-D2 - thinks that is anything but his kind, ultra-polite robotic persona, C-3PO. Baker raged:
Anthony doesn't mix at all--he keeps himself to himself. He never wants to have a drink with any of us. Once when I said hello to him he just turned his back on me and said, 'Can't you see I'm having a conversation?' I was blazing with rage. It was the rudest thing anyone had ever done to me. I was furious. It was unbelievable.
I guess it helps that the warring pair have their robot alter-egos to hide behind on-set...
By the time Anthony is in his costume I don't see him. I turn up five minutes before filming starts and they pop me into the R2-D2 shell. There's no talking once you're inside. He's had 30 minutes getting out at the end and by that time I'm away. We never meet socially--we don't live anywhere near each other.
Yowzer! No love lost between this pair then! I don't know if I can look at Star Wars in the same way again...
Share if you were shocked that R2-D2 and C-3PO hate each other!
