In sad celebrity news: this photo was taken a few years after the release of Revenge of the Sith. Times haven't been good for R2D2. Let's hope the new Star Wars movies will revive his acting career.
Have you ever misheard lyrics to a song? Yes? (But how would you really know?) Well, this is for you.
