A/P for sure - H/L always annoyed me

I'm inclined to attribute the popularity of Padme/Anakin to people being attracted to Hayden Christensen.

Not necessarily. The fact that a lot of people like something isn't proof that it has any quality. There is after all lots of crap that is very popular.

Maybe. They are both so pretty

But that crap must be doing something right.
I think a lot of it is wish fulfillment. They want that kind of epic love and so they live vicariously through the story.

HC is cute but he wasn't the one I wanted as Anakin, so it's certainly not because of that and I was a fan from the moment of "are you an angel"

well, H/L might have annoyed me because I first watched the OT when I was about 9-10 and romance wasn't so my deal yet - I was always, "oh no, not them again ... get back to the light saber fights"

Who did you want as Anakin?

In TPM I was a bit creeped out at the age difference and was like how is this ever going to work? She's a 14 year old Queen and he's a 9 year old slave boy training to become a Jedi. But now knowing how it turns out it is works. Also their different social standings can be an issue explored in fanfic.
And I don't even care about the age difference. In a galaxy where different species can date Padmé being 5 years older means nothing. (Also now I shouldn't talk because I find Robert Pattinson attractive. I feel a bit creppy for crushing on a younger man, but you can't help who you like. )

If, or when, you watch the OT now do you think you would feel differently, or would you still want to skip their scenes?

I loved their interaction in ESB best. When they are in the asteroid field.

I also find it a big creepy that I crush on Rupert Grint even though he's only 4 years younger (but if that's really worse than a 16-year old crushing on a guy about 8 years oler ...)

Leo DiCaprio it was once mentioned as a rumour and since then ... ... but ... even though I wanted him as Anakin, I knew it would not really work out - he's a few years older than Natalie and would have had to play someone younger than her ...

Oh I remember the Leo rumors. He does have Luke's blond hair and light eyes.
I think it was good though that GL went with an actor who wasn't mainstream.

About Han and Leia, when you watch the OT now do you feel differently or do you still want to skip their scenes?

I don't have problems with romance anymore now but ... I dislike Han's character I must admit, so I guess that's why I can't warm up to them (even though I'm glad they got a happy ending)

Han Solo is one of the best characters in Star Wars. Harrison Ford did a great job with the role.

Hayden was terrible miscasting. Heath Ledger would have made a good Anakin.

I have come across other people who didn't like his character because they felt he was arrogant.
Oh well, I've always love him. He made me laugh and squee.

I don't doubt Heath's (God bless his soul ) ability to take on the role. He was very talented. But he doesn't look like a Skywalker. Ya know? I don't see him in Luke, or Leia.

I thought he was a good looking man when he was younger. Now he is just average.

Calista is a frail, petite woman. I doubt she could hurt a fly.
