Acting in a “Star Wars” movie sure does bring you back to childhood. Just ask Laura Dern.
Eagle-eyed fans on Twitter have found a shot in “The Last Jedi” where the 51-year-old actress can be seen making a “pew” sound with her mouth as she fires her laser blaster.
Dern actually revealed last year that she had been doing “pew” noises when she appeared on Global’s “The Late Show”.
“There is a moment where I get to have a space-weapon in my hand, and I guess, didn’t realize that I was back in my bedroom at eight years old doing the scene,” she told host Stephen Colbert, “and I went, ‘Pew! Pew!’ as I was [shooting]. They’ve taken the sound out. I don’t think you’ll hear that in the movie, hopefully.”
Though the sound was indeed taken out of the movie, the evidence of her mouthing “pew” is still intact to the absolute delight of “Star Wars” fans on Twitter.
