Amy Schumer's Star Wars shoot for GQ: Mark Hamill reacts
Amy Schumer’s sultry, Star Wars-themed GQ cover has caught the attention of at least one Jedi in this galaxy.
Mark Hamill tweeted his reaction to the photos — showing Schumer, C-3PO and R2-D2 in some compromising positions — and joked that he thought it was a casting announcement.
“Got excited when I saw @amyschumer @GQMagazine pics & thought she was cast in Ep 8! We should be so lucky,” he wrote.
Lucasfilm said Friday that it didn’t authorize the racy spread, which appears in the magazine’s August issue.
“It’s not surprising that GQ would want to capitalize on the cultural cachet of Star Wars, but Lucasfilm and Disney did not authorize, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner,” the studio’s public relations representatives said.
Schumer’s Trainwreck opened in theaters Friday. Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released Dec. 18.
