As much as fans want to believe that everyone ever unequivocally loves the Star Wars films, there are a few people out there who just don’t feel the same way. And believe it or not, some of those people who have badmouthed Star Wars... have actually been in Star Wars. It’s not unheard of for an actor to complain about a bad experience they’ve had on a film, but when it’s a part of the holy trinity (or sextet, if you’re one of those people who likes the prequels) you’d think they’d be a little cooler about the whole thing. Some of the Star Wars actors who hate Star Wars finally came around when it was time to shoot The Force Awakens, but some of them went to their graves cursing the name of George Lucas. This list explores the phenomena of Star Wars actors hating on the biggest science fiction franchise ever, not to mention the biggest payday many of them ever saw.

Everyone knows that Harrison Ford has been a big grump about Star Wars since Return of the Jedi was released, but did you know that Anthony Daniels, the guy who played C-3PO, has a few Death Star-sized problems with how Disney has handled the Star Wars films? Some of the Star Wars actors who hated the movies have a made a tenuous peace with the series, and have tried their best to compartmentalize the intense mind bleepery that comes along with becoming a collectable action figure, but a few of the actors still hold a grudge against Star Wars for how it wrecked their lives (poor Jake Lloyd).

Keep scrolling to take a look at the Star Wars actors who hate the Star Wars films and let your nerd rage flow freely.
