Ca­role: My Luke warm date with Star Wars George

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SONG­WRITER Ca­role Bayer Sager branded her date with Star Wars cre­ator George Lu­cas as a DIS­AS­TER.

She’s writ­ten more than 400 songs for the likes of Michael Jack­son, Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross but 69-year-old Ca­role re­called George Lu­cas as her worst celebrity en­counter.

The lyri­cist was set up on a date with the 72-year-old film­maker by their mu­tual friend Car­rie Fisher, but she branded him a “weird recluse”.

Ca­role said: “Car­rie fixed me up with George, who took me to a French restau­rant in San Fran­cisco. He asked me what type of wine I pre­ferred – the last ques­tion he would ask me all night.

“Two hours later, I knew more about his 3,000-acre Sky­walker Ranch home than I did about my own.

“He hated LA, so he had cre­ated his own world he’d never have to leave.

“When we parted, he awk­wardly gave me a dry, me­chan­i­cal kiss on my lips – wor­thy of R2-D2.”
