Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen‘s daughter is still too young to understand what Mom and Dad do – and the actress hopes to keep it that way for a while.
“We’ll probably avoid that for as long as possible,” Bilson, 35, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue of introducing Briar Rose, 2½, to her and partner Christensen’s onscreen personas. “Especially because her dad is who he is.”
Christensen, 36, famously portrayed Anakin Skywalker – a.k.a. (spoiler alert!) Darth Vader – in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.
“She might be like, ‘Oh no! Darth Vader’s my dad!’ ” Bilson points out of her daughter, joking, “No one’s gonna mess with her on the playground.”
