Your loss, then. The Professional
was certainly very well regarded and a much beloved film to boot. Ditto for Heat
and, while not necessarily high art, Mars Attacks
was really fun, too.
But, hey, if you personally never noticed her before Star Wars, she must not have existed. And I have no doubt that there's plenty of other blissfully ignorant people in the world, too.
