So that's why!

Hayden Christensen hasn't appeared in many movies playing Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars prequel movies.

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??

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!
