Anakin Skywalker — The Schizphrenic Jedi Knight

Somehow, life just seems to be harder for child stars. You give a child a little attention and they go bonkers. Jake Loyd, known for his portrayal of Anakin Skywalker in 1999’s Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, is no exception to that rule. The child actor, whose mother says he suffers from schizophrenia, has been in jail since June of last year after leading cops on a 100 mph police chase. According to TMZ, he has since been moved to a psychiatric facility due to his mental health, where his mother says he’s doing better than he was behind bars.
