Washington (ANI): Hollywood filmmaker George Lucas apparently considers Barack Obama to be a real-life hero, for he says that the 44th U.S. President is more powerful than Luke Skywalker, the main protagonist of his Star Wars films.
He expressed this view when he was honoured with the Ford Theatre Society's Lincoln medal in a ceremony attended by Obama in Washington on Wednesday night. Lucas said that in contest between Skywalker and Obama, the latter wins hands down, even without the lightsaber.
Also honoured with the Lincoln medal during the event was screen legend Sidney Poitier. According to Policito.com, Poitier said that Obama's rockstar status was still going strong.
