Controversial left wing journalist Michael Moore has revealed that he was the body double for Jabba the Hutt in the blockbuster Star Wars series.
"Yes it's true" said Mr Moore speaking from a lunch date at Burger King.
"George Lucas phoned me out of the blue and asked if I could stand in for Jabba in a number of scenes"
Apparently Jabba was sensitive about having his real body exposed on screen and asked Lucas to supply a body double for some of the shots.
Moore continued "It was naturally a great honour to appear in the Star Wars movies, I've always been a great fan"
Moore is currently being employed as a road block for the LAPD.
