Natalie Portman has found a reason to not show her son the Star Wars prequel films she appears in — and it has nothing to do with Jar Jar Binks.

During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Portman was asked if her 5-year-old son had yet seen her in the Star Wars prequels, in which she stars as Padmé Amidala.


Portman first appeared in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace and played a major part in the next two films. Her role was central to the entire franchise as she was not only Anakin Skywalker’s wife, but also mother to Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa — which also makes Kylo Ren her grandson.
