Looks like not everyone is part of the Beyhive.
Hayden Christensen News Archive
So that's why!
Sure, he showed up in a couple recognizable films such as Jumper and Takers — both of which were pretty much panned by critics — but he hasn't taken on projects like you'd expect a star in his prime to do.
After a few years off and spending time on his farm with baby mama Rachel Bilson, Hayden opened up to the Los Angeles Times about his break from acting, saying:
Leonardo DiCaprio Was Almost Anakin Skywalker In The Star Wars Prequels — Find Out Why He Turned It Down!
We can't even begin to imagine this!
You know how Leonardo DiCaprio is pretty much the most famous actor alive?
Well, it turns out he could have been even bigger because according to a recent report he almost starred in the Star Wars prequels way back in 1999!
Apparently, fresh off of his breakout role in Titanic, George Lucas was interested in getting Leo attached to The Phantom Menace and Attack Of The Clones.
But after a few meetings, the Revenant actor decided against joining the franchise because he wasn't "ready" for such a commitment.
Anakin Skywalker was then famously played by Hayden Christensen for three critically underwhelming movies while Leonardo went on to rule the A-List thanks to The Aviator, Blood Diamond, Inception, Wolf of Wall Street, and a whole bunch of other hits, so we think he made the right decision.
Although, who knows… maybe that could have been his Oscar winner??
Would U have been interested in a Leo-filled galaxy far, far away??

Hayden Christensen Was Almost In The Force Awakens! See How The Prequel Star Would Have Appeared HERE!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced us to some pretty dark villains!
But the film almost included a sinister character from the prequels that some fans like to pretend never actually happened — Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker!
While Anakin was one of the few Star Wars characters who didn't made a cameo in The Force Awakens, we could be seeing him in Episode VIII or Rogue One!
As of now, we don't know if the not-so-fan-favorite character will return to the franchise. But if he does decide to rear his head, we know what Anakin is supposed to look like!
According to a new book titled The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, concept art reveals Anakin would have been depicted as a disfigured ghost:

Introducing Briar Rose to the world…
And on Sunday, the former Hart Of Dixie star took to Instagram to — sort of — show her off to the world!
The snap features boyfriend Hayden Christensen blowing bubbles as their daughter wears a cute flower-patterned hat!
Style definitely runs in the family!
The hip couple are notoriously private so we're glad they gave their millions of social media followers a glimpse of their bundle of joy!
Also curious as to why they named their baybay Briar Rose?!
It's a reference to the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty where Princess Aurora is given the lovely moniker by the fairies who shelter her!
How clever! We just hope Rachel shares more pics of her brood in the future! ADORBZ!
Rachel Bilson & Hayden Christensen Put On The Rare PDA In This Sweet Selfie — But Where's Briar Rose?
The cute couple share a kiss in a new selfie Rachel posted to her Instagram on Thursday.
And judging by her use of the arrow-stricken heart emoji as a caption, it's safe to say the 33-year-old is smitten.
While the picture is perfect, the one thing that could have made this shot better would have been the addition of baby Briar Rose!
The parents have yet to share a pic of their eight-month-old daughter!
Maybe one day, but until then, we're just glad to see that they're one happy family!

The Hart of Dixie actress took to IG in a rare moment and shared an adorable pic of her daughter, Briar Rose Christensen — well kind of!!
And from the pic she shared (above) it seems that daddy and daughter got some matching Star Wars swag. LOVES it!
The brunette beauty has certainly laid low since the birth of her mini-me. But when she IS spotted out and about, her fit post baby-bod has been unreal!
The new mom has had some down moments — especially since the CW announced the cancellation of her southern comedy last month after only four seasons. Whomp, whomp!
But it seems Rachel's not focusing on work news and is all about her little one right now!
Rach, feel free to share more pics of Briar Rose — only if you want to!!
