Jake Lloyd's role as the young Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menance brought him fame, however, he was negatively affected by the stressful criticism of his performance in the film. Lloyd also resented the publicity that his role brought him including relentless bullying at school and being interviewed sixty times a day. Lloyd's resentment towards George Lucas led him to quit acting in 2001 and to destroy all his Star Wars memorabilia. Lloyd reprised his role as the young Anakin in five video games.[2][3]
