Talked into throwing it all into the wind for love by a man her junior. Yeah see I have a hard time buying that bit. The age gap there never felt right.

See and I always thought that Anakin deserved a high five for that age gap. He got a gorgeous older woman who was in love with him, that deserves kudos.

I don't think 20 and 25 is really that big of a deal. I bought it. Besides, Anakin was cute. Razz

Hey, I said nothing about swooning. I only noted that he's attractive. And I thought his acting really improved in RotS. Smile

Perhaps in universe- but I can't get over the age gap. Perhaps it's just HOW Young the young Anakin looks vs Padme who still looks about the same today.

You talking about AotC? I didn't think he looked that young.

I'm talking TPM, but no romance. Just that KNOWING these two characters will someday get together, it's hard to make that connection. then we get AotC and they look the same age so it's all ok again. Wink

Well, since there's no romance in TPM, why does the age difference bother you? Unless it's just knowing that these two kids are going to get together that makes your head hurt. Wink

Yeah- Guess I didn't make that too clear huh? Yeah the KNOWING made it too much for me. The "look" of the characters- Anakin looks 6, she looked 19. THAT'S my big Grrr (aside from Jar Jar) with TPM.

Nah, Jake looked 9, and Natalie looked about 16. Still a big age difference though. I don't have a problem with it, because they kept the feelings of Anakin about Padme really contained in the first scene when they meet. Besides that, it felt more like Anakin really wanting to be around Padme because she was so different and nice and not for a "romance" reason.

I had no problem believing Padme was a teenager.

Like I said by ep 2 the "look" of the characters feels more right. But for me, my daughter just turned 7, and so I have a hard time seeing him as a 9 year old. He looks too 6-7 to me. Padme though in ep 1 looks almost the same as she does by ep 3- (Portman ages well)

Again it's not the Romance- just that I know these characters are destined to be together because of the moment shared in ep 1. I just have a hard time buying that scene.

That aside (and Jar Jar) Ep1 has some of my fav scenes as well.
