George Lucas Causes a Buzz by Marrying His Young, Black Girlfriend

Post By RelatedRelated Post

I must admit after watching Oprah Winfrey’s ‘Dark Girls’ documentary I was happy to see the wedding pictures of George Lucas and his beautiful dark skinned wife Mellody Hobson. On the documentary, ‘Dark Girls’, was broadcast on the Oprah Winfrey Network, some African American men openly admitted that they do not prefer to date or marry dark skinned women.  Ironically, some of these men were dark skinned themselves. George Lucas is putting those men to shame by flaunting such a beautiful dark-skinned bride.  Young dark women should see this wedding picture and be excited about their complexion and beauty, because George Lucas seems to know that there are no color limitations to beauty.

The visionary “Star Wars” filmmaker wed the Ariel Investments president before an intimate gathering at Skywalker Ranch, in Marin County, California, at 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 22.

The ceremony was officiated by journalist Bill Moyers, who famously interviewed the writer Joseph Campbell at Skywalker Ranch for a landmark documentary series in 1988. According to Arianna Huffington, who was in attendance, Moyers spoke so movingly that several married couples said afterward that they felt they’d renewed their own vows.

“It only takes one person to have met the love of your life,” Moyers, who was a Baptist minister before launching his illustrious career in journalism, told the bride and groom. Moyers went on to quote the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi: “When I heard my first love story, I was thinking of you.”

Lucas’ longtime friend and collaborator Steven Spielberg gave the toast from the groom’s side, joking that The Force finally had a name: Mellody. John W. Rogers, Hobson’s fellow executive at Ariel Investments, spoke on behalf of the bride. And director Francis Ford Coppola read a poem by Maya Angelou.

Van Morrison flew in from Ireland to perform at the reception, which took place on the Skywalker Ranch soundstage. Janelle Monae also performed, and former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley, who has known Hobson since she was 17, gave away the bride and offered a toast before the cake-cutting ceremony.

This is the first marriage for Hobson, 44, who wore a white dress by Peter Soronen and changed skirts between the ceremony and the party. Lucas, 69, has been married once before, to film editor Marcia Griffin. They adopted a daughter together, and Lucas adopted two more children after they divorced, in 1983. Lucas’ son, Jett, was his best man, and his daughters, Katie and Amanda, served as bridesmaids.

In addition to serving as president of Ariel Investments, Hobson is chairman of Dreamworks Animation and a financial contributor with CBS.

Lucas’ contributions to popular culture include the Indiana Jones saga, which he co-created with Spielberg, and “American Graffiti,” which he directed in 1973. Last October, Lucas sold his production company, Lucasfilm Ltd., to the Walt Disney Company for $4.05 billion. “Star Trek” director J.J. Abrams soon signed on to direct the first in a series of planned “Star Wars” sequels, set to begin filming early next year.

  1. I always like the way whitemen treat the ladies and I must say, ‘whitemen rocks’.
    We don’t hate you our black brothers, but sincerely speaking, our brothers need to change the way they treat and view women, every woman likes sincerity and respect.
    If you do that, your sisters will always date you.

    • Stay on your side ghetto gaggers, we don’t need you. We never did. All this propaganda about black women being “loyal” but as soon as you get your chance to cross the race lines, you do so.

      I have a challenge for you. How long can you keep it up for before discovering you’re mostly just wanted for sex?? Just don’t come back with some mixed bastards, because more Black men will not bother with your ass’.

      • I felt pure hatred in your reply. Whoever and whatever made you this way…I’m truly sorry. Its not healthy and its unproductive. Hatred is like cancer….if you don’t find the source and fix it, it will infiltrate every area of your life. I pray one day you will see individuals as individuals and not group them in a class. Granted no entire race is without its issues…there is good and bad in all. God is love….

      • The most self-hating, jealous response i ever heard. Go listen to your dang Kanye West CDs. Youre no doubt a retarted hypocrite. Celeb Black men NEVER marry Black women.. Poor Mellody, this is her first. Why didnt you marry her? I guarantee the women you fantasize about are mixed, Puertorican, etc. Go spread your useless ignorance elsewhere..caused you goona get called out her. Ghetto gaggers..that woman, is so much better, smarter, RICHER, than you…how dare you try to publicly demean her. Youre getting demeaned now loser.

  2. She looks gorgeous!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous!

  4. Congratulations to Melody and George. I met Melody when she was a senior in high school, about to attend Princeton. She was an enterprenure then with her own business. I learned valuable information from her, on how to teach your child how to deal with an unfair grade. It’s simple. Make a copy of all turned in work and keep all returned papers and tests. This is your proof in a dispute.
    I’m very happy for Melody, she has earned everything she has accomplished, with her larger then life beautiful personality. It’s sad to say, most Black men do not marry powerful Black women. George is smart, he married his own personal financial advisor. A marriage made in Heaven and in the boardroom. Can’t beat that.
