Daisy Ridley Reveals How Stressful 'Star Wars' Fame Can Be

Daisy Ridley Reveals How Stressful 'Star Wars' Fame Can Be

Daisy Ridley is looking so stunning on the cover of Vogue magazine’s November 2017 issue.

Here’s what the 25-year-old Star Wars: The Last Jedi actress had to share with the mag:

On what she was like as a kid: “I was a little tomboy. Loud. Often very sassy. Insane amounts of energy. I remember asking, ‘Was I shy?’ And my mum laughing hysterically. She said I used to run into a room and go, ‘Helloooo!’ ”

On if she’s single: “I’m not saying.”

On dealing with Star Wars fame: “People were recognizing me—I still don’t know how to handle it. My skin got really bad because I was stressed. It was crippling. I just felt so seen and so self-conscious….I heard a knock on the door. These two guys went, ‘Hey, Daisy, can I get an autograph?’ and I literally went, ‘No f*ckin’ way.’ My mum said to me, ‘Everyone’s trying to take ownership of you.’”

On starting therapy to deal with the pain: “I went and saw a lovely lady. I felt like I was sort of reducing myself because I was so worried that people would recognize me,”

FYI: Daisy is wearing a Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello dress and earrings on the cover.

    Sorry, Daisy, not sorry but John Boyega is the REAL Star Wars star. I wouldn’t mind if the triology focused entirely on Finn.

    It annoys me when these celebs moan about being recognised. I get it cant be very pleasant but in all honesty what did you expect? Are you honestly telling me you were not prepared for it upon entering into the movie business especially being in a film franchise as known and big as star wars is. You must have known it was going to happen to some extent!

    Agreed. Celebrities don’t owe anyone autographs, selfies, etc. However, she took on a major role in the Star Wars franchise, she is quite naive if she didn’t think she’d get so much attention.

    I liked Finn and Poe better than Rey. Rey is too much of a Mary Sue.

    Okay then you can just go away then, give back your pay check, tell the studios to not use your likeness on anything and not play in Star wars. Jeez. Are these people for real?! You broke out in hives and acne because of Star wars?! I never liked her character and now I don’t care at all. I wish we never had her Mary Sue character from the start.

    You hate the fame but you take the pay check and the perks though… classy stuff. Meanwhile Carrie Fisher is dead and we’re stuck with this crap when we could have just gone for Darth Vader, Empire and Ahsoka Tano, rebels and Jedi Vs Sith of the Old Republic.

    If you hate the fame, LEAVE. Go on! Oh look you’re not…

  • Just Saying

    Exactly. Hopefully The Last Jedi fixes that.
