Daisy Ridley struggles to ditch her “scruffy” clothes in favour of more glamorous looks.
The 27-year-old has opened up about wanting to change and evolve her style in an interview with Marie Claire magazine, and also revealed her dismay at not liking most of the clothes she has in her wardrobe.
“I’m constantly trying to be a better, glammer version of the person I am,” she told the publication. “I’ve never liked my wardrobe. I think I’m just more scruffy. But I love wearing heels and fancy clothes.”
Since she shot to worldwide fame as Rey in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in 2015, Daisy has worn the likes of Mugler, Oscar de la Renta, Vivienne Westwood, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Calvin Klein on the red carpet.
And the British beauty also shared how she became physically and mentally exhausted after making back-to-back films – including Murder on the Orient Express, drama Ophelia, sci-fi thriller Chaos Walking, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi – for almost two years.
“I got really, really run-down… I got home and just had nothing left. Emotionally, I was done,” Daisy said, adding that she took six months off early last year before filming the final chapter in the Star Wars saga, The Rise of Skywalker. “I just chilled the f**k out. I saw people and did things. And that was when I was like, ‘You cannot just go from one job to another.'”
Now, Daisy uses healing crystals thanks to advice from her eldest sister Poppy, who is a Reiki practitioner, and has overcome a debilitating battle with insomnia.
“I don’t know how I dealt with it, but it finally went away,” she explained.
