Stunna Shade Obi-Wan

This would have gotten a million likes on Instagram. The legendary Alec Guinness balling out in a desert wasteland with the oversized Prada sunglasses? Talk about style on fleek.

To set the stage for Luke Skywalker’s emergence on the planet Tatooine, the Star Wars crew filmed for months in the sweltering

heat of North Africa. Unfortunately, Mr. Guinness didn’t particularly seem to enjoy his time on A New Hope.

According to his close friend, Anne Kaufman, he sent her a note that stated, “I must off to studio and work with a dwarf (very sweet - and he has to wash in a bidet) and our fellow countrymen Mark Hamill and Tennyson…they make me feel ninety - and treat me as if I was 206. Oh, Harrison Ford, ever heard of him?”

In that same letter, he wrote of the one saving grace from his apparently arduous time on set: “I just think, thankfully, of the lovely bread, which will help me keep going until next April.”

So yes, he was probably dreaming about Tunisian wheat under those stunna shades.
