R2d2's X-Rated Star Wars Costume

Diminutive STAR WARS actor KENNY BAKER stopped complaining about his discomfort inside robot R2DT during filming for the sci-fi saga's final episode - because the film crew plastered its interior with pictures of naked models.

The 70-year-old star dreaded filming the first five Star Wars films because the awkward metal outfit was unbearable, but his work on the sixth installment, STAR WARS: EPISODE III - REVENGE OF THE SITH was more tolerable because he shared the costume with pornographic images.

He explains, "The lads surprised me one day by sticking a load of Page Three pictures inside R2D2's head. I got inside and wondered what the heck was going on.

"I got cross-eyed looking at everything in front of me. But it was rather nice. It made it a lot more bearable."
