On the stress of Hollywood:
I had problems with my gut last year. I was so stressed, my gut wall literally had holes in it. It was what everybody kept saying to me: ‘Your life is going to change. Are you ready? I was like, ‘How can I be ready? I don’t know what’s coming.

On selecting roles:
My main thing now is that I want to do Rey justice. Because after you’re offered a role like that, I don’t think you can go and play The Waitress or The Girlfriend or any of those nondescript female roles that are written like 'The This, The That'.

On using her platform to be vocal about issues in the world:
I find it really difficult. I was on Instagram, trying to do that whole thing, and people weren’t very nice. I posted a thing about gun regulations, because I was at an event in tribute to the Orlando shooting at Pulse [where 49 people were killed and over 50 were wounded]. People weren’t nice about how I looked. And I was like, I’m out. Simple as that. That is not what I signed up for.

On advice Carrie Fisher gave here:
I guess, in essence, it was: You do you. She said that you can deal with things your own way. She chose to deal with things with humor, which isn’t how I deal with things, but that’s OK. You can serve yourself in many, many ways, do it however the hell you want, and succeed massively. And it’s all good.
