Obviously, George Lucas is a maniac. He’s a big fat billionaire who makes children’s movies about racist space creatures and gay robots. He lives in a militarized compound and gave birth to all the nerds from his mind-vagina. But the ways in which his insanity expresses itself might surprise you! Or not! I’ve got no idea what you’re expecting right now! From the Toronto Sun:
Funnyman Seth Rogen was left stunned by a recent encounter with his moviemaking hero George Lucas – because the Star Wars director spent 20 minutes telling him the world would end in 2012. Rogen was left speechless when Lucas and Steven Spielberg joined a movie meeting he was a part of – but the encounter has left him worried his life will be over next year.
He recalls, “George Lucas sits down and seriously proceeds to talk for around 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real. He thinks it. He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes, like, ’My nerdy friend won’t shut up, I’m sorry…’ I first thought he (Lucas) was joking… and then I totally realized he was serious.”
Hahaha. Oh, George Lucas. You are literally crazy for this one. Hopefully you built some kind of mental in-patient facility on Skywalker Ranch. I’m talking a place with REAL doctors, George, not just HOLOGRAM doctors in slave-Leia outfits.
