“They always talk about how you’re a sex symbol, and how do I feel about that,” Daisy Ridley, the newcomer to the franchise told Carrie when she was interviewed for Interview magazine. Carrie responded with, “I am not a sex symbol, so that’s an opinion of someone. I don’t share that. Well, you should fight for your outfit. Don’t be a slave like I was.”
Daisy replied with “all right, I’ll fight,” and Carrie didn’t stop there. “You keep fighting against that slave outfit.”
Daisy, 23, isn’t a huge star yet and will portray the role of Rey, in the new film coming out at Christmas. We know that Daisy is extremely excited. When the trailer came out on Oct. 19, she literally started crying — and it was all captured on camera. “Staying in a little b’n’b with my friend… Set an alarm to watch the trailer… My friend filmed my reaction. Totally emotional seeing it for the first time and so so so incredibly awed to be part of this incredible legacy #starwars#theforceawakens,” she wrote on her Instagram video.
Well, do you think Carrie’s advice was good? Or was the gold bikini empowering? Let us know!
