Hey everyone - I did a little bit of searching about what Padme's age was when her and Anakin first met. As well all know when they met he was nine years old while Padme was fourteen at that time. So in episode two, Anakin is training with Obi-Wan for ten years which makes him nineteen when he meets Padme again on Crosunt. Padme is now twenty four years of age. And in the final I take it takes place perhaps two to three years later after Episode two? So wouldn't that make Ppadme twenty-seven years old and Anakin would be only twenty two before he is turned from the path of light? Am I correct? I knew Padme would be a bit older than Anakin but Natalie Portman doesn't look like she's older than Hayden Christian in the movies. I also don't like what Portman said about her playing Padme. She stated something along the lines of it not being her part to play. That kind of made me mad. One thing I didn't care for was her acting in Episode 3. No offense to you Portman lovers out there but she really got on my nerves in Episode III. To me she didn't really show any emotions with the news she had for Anakin. I just think they could have found someone else for the role of Padme. Believe me there were plenty more ladies out there who would have been a great Padme. What do you guys think??
