Carrie Fisher Offers Advice To Newcomer Daisy Ridley
Princess Leia’s gold bikini became a phenomenon after Fisher wore the outfit in 1983’s Return of the Jedi, in a scene where her character is Jabba the Hutt’s slave. “You should fight for your outfit,” she told Ridley during the chat for Interview magazine. “Don’t be a slave like I was.” When Fisher asked if the young actress if she is prepared to become a fantasy figure for millions of Star Wars fans, the 23-year-old Brit replied, “No, they always talk about how you’re (Fisher) a sex symbol, and how do I feel about that. I’m not a sex symbol!” Fisher added, “Listen! I am not a sex symbol, so that’s an opinion of someone. I don’t share that.” When the sci-fi veteran asked Ridley if she is ready for the worldwide fame that Star Wars will bring, Ridley answered, “I don’t know if I can prepare for what’s to come because I don’t know what will.” The Force Awakens will be released on December 18.
