Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley Says At Least ‘Every Sane Person’ Has an Issue with President Trump


Star Wars star Daisy Ridley in a recent interview with The Guardian said rather declaratively that “everyone has an issue with” President Trump – “every sane person anyway.”

So, every person that supports Trump or doesn't outright hate him is insane? 

She also doesn't believe she has so-called "white privilege," despite going to boarding school and being brought up by a wealthy family.

Ridley was asked by The Guardian whether she was “conscious of what issues she can talk about publicly” given that Disney owns Star Wars, to which she replied, “No. I don’t feel I have to edit what I say.”

“[T]he things that make me angry are the things that make everyone angry,” she said. “Everyone is annoyed with BoJo [British Prime Minister Boris Johnson]. Everyone has an issue with Trump – every sane person anyway.”

Ridley continued, “It’s not that I don’t talk about this stuff, but other people are so much more articulate than me and say it better.” 

In the same interview, Ridley, who played Rey in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015), Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017), and will star in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker which premieres Dec. 20, got offended when asked about "the privilege in her life."

When asked whether she believes “it has been easier to be confident and navigate her celebrity" considering her years of private education and upbringing, Ridley replied defensively, “The privilege I have – how? No, genuinely, how?”

She even said there was little to no different between her experience and that of her co-star John Boyega, “who grew up in south London to British Nigerian immigrant parents” and "had to apply for a hardship fund to join Theatre Peckham," wrote The Guardian.

“Also, I went to a boarding school for performing arts, which was different,” Ridley insisted. Oh, right.

"I was always fairly confident, and I think that comes from being part of a big family who are all quite chatty," she added.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker hits theaters Dec. 20.
