Los Angeles - Mark Hamill has defended Amy Schumer's Star Wars GQ spread after it was blasted as "inappropriate".

The 63-year-old actor - who played Luke Skywalker in the original movie trilogy - praised Amy after her sexy shoot for the magazine was blasted in a message on the official Star Wars Twitter feed.

Mark - who will appear in the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens tweeted: "Got excited when I saw @amyschumer @GQMagazine pics & thought she was just cast in Ep 8! We should be so lucky (sic)."

34-year-old comic Amy posed for a sexy shoot for the magazine which included a picture of her naked in bed with classic characters R2-D2 and C-3PO.

The cover shows Amy suggestively sucking C-3PO's finger while inside the magazine an image shows her dressed as heroine Princess Leia dancing with stormtroopers, but it was not well received.

When fan @RogueKnite wrote: "I love @AmySchumer & her comedy routine(s). But this GQ #StarWars spread is just in poor taste", a reply from the official Star Wars Twitter page replied: "Lucasfilm & Disney did not approve, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner."
