Director Defended Child Star Attacked in Star Wars News

A news article criticized child actor Jake Lloyd before anyone saw the movie.

Ron Howard, a director, defended Lloyd in a letter.

He argued it's wrong to attack a child actor without seeing their work.

This wasn't the only criticism Lloyd faced after the Star Wars movie.

However, his mental health struggles likely weren't caused by Star Wars.

Other actors, like Ahmed Best, have suffered from harsh criticism.

It's important to be respectful even when giving negative feedback.
