Embarrassed George Lucas Still Just Telling New Wife He Works In Digital Media

SAN ANSELMO, CA—Following his lavish wedding over the weekend to financial company president Mellody Hobson, a self-conscious George Lucas is reportedly still too embarrassed to tell his new wife exactly what he does for a living, and continues to just say he’s employed in the digital media industry, sources confirmed Tuesday. “Oh, I just do a lot of web stuff, you know, in the digital tech kind of realm—it’s not really all that interesting,” the visibly uncomfortable screenwriter and film director reportedly told Hobson during their wedding reception, before noting that Steven Spielberg, Samuel L. Jackson, and others in attendance were fans of his “work with computers.” “No, I don’t know who Han Solo is. Someone asked you about him? Hmm, I have no idea. Must be some guy who worked at my data-tech company way back. What about your work, though? I love hearing about that. How’s that going?” According to sources, Lucas informed his new wife that Skywalker Ranch, where the two were wed, was named for the property’s previous owner, Carl Skywalker, and was still full of “a bunch of that guy’s old junk.”
