The Real Reason Why the Actor Who Played Young Anakin in Star Wars Went Into Rehab

Most of us remember Jake Lloyd as the bratty little pod racer kid Anakin Skywalker in “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.” The movie didn’t get the best reception from the fans, but it did make Jake a huge bag of money. Unfortunately, being a part of the worst Star Wars trilogy made people hate Lloyd with a burning passion, leading a child to a very slippery slope.

According to his mother, Jake is now in a psychiatric rehabilitation center. In an exclusive interview with People magazine, the kid’s mother, Lisa Lloyd, opened up about her now 35-year-old son’s ongoing battle with mental illness.

With the 25th anniversary of The Phantom Menace being right around the corner, Lisa thought it would be the perfect time to share how her son has been doing since his Star Wars days. It’s no surprise that Jake’s problems started in high school. Or at least that’s when Lisa first noticed her son’s personality change.
