Star Wars actor Kenny Baker has been found guilty of drunk driving and slapped with a one-year road ban.

The 70-year-old vertically challenged actor--who played robot R2-D2 in the original trilogy--has also been ordered to pay a $209 fine for driving his Maroon Mercedes in Lancashire, England, on December 17 with 92 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millimeters of blood.

But far from being pessimistic about his driving ban, Baker hopes his criminal offence will lead to love.

He jokes, "I'm on the lookout for a lady chauffeur, but I'd prefer it if she was two foot six inches.

"I did break the law, so I have to be punished."
