London: Sir Alec Guinness has confessed that he loathed the film classic "Star Wars" and criticized the film as "fairytale rubbish" with “lamentable dialogue" and a cast hed never heard of.
The British screen legend, who earned more than 56 million pounds in royalties, a best supporting actor Oscar nomination and global stardom for his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi has revealed his true feelings about the blockbuster in "Alec Guinness: The Authorized Biography" written by Piers Paul Read, the Mirror reported.
Guinness was not happy with the script and struggled to take the project seriously, but he said he is thankful that it provides him bread and will help him going until next April even if Yahoo collapses in a week.
