Jake Lloyd was only 10 years old when he got the role of the Young Anakin SkyWalker in Star Wars Episode I:  The Phantom Menace back in 1999, however nothing could’ve prepared him for the hell he would’ve had to go through.  Bullying,  constant interviews, and sleepless hours.

According to an article by Teleshow-Infobae,  Lloyd now understands the price of fame.

“Star Wars turned my life into a living hell”  confessed Lloyd, 23, “Back then, kids were so cruel to me.  each time I walked by they made the LightSaber sound to make fun of me.  I also had over 60 interviews.”

According to Teleshow-Infobae, the actor destroyed everything and anything related to the Star Wars Saga.

“I really started to hate being in front of a camera.”
