Everyone knows that the level of secrecy surrounding a Star Wars movie is insane and the cast is not allowed to tell anyone what's going to happen in the film. You might think an exception could be made for immediate family members, but this is not the case for Laura Dern who will be joining the Star Wars galaxy later this year in Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. In a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies, Dern confesses that she won't even tell her children (aged 15 and 12) anything about the film.
Dern said, "It’s hard in our own house. ‘Mom, you can at least tell us who you play.’ I’d never put them in that position".
According to Dern, she doesn't want her kids to have to have to worry about keeping the secrets from their friends so she's keeping it from them instead, which really is the mom thing to do.
Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15th. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, and Laura Dern.
