Daisy Ridley 'Will Not Apologise' For Her Body

Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley has responded to criticism on social media that she is too thin by saying she is a "real woman" who "will not apologise" for her body.

It comes after an Instagram user posted a photo of her character Rey, with a speech bubble and words inside suggesting the British star set "unrealistic expectations" for others.

The post read: "I can't believe the unrealistic expectations I'm setting for young girls. Who cast me anyway? Don't they know real women have curves?"

The 23-year-old Londoner replied and defended her figure: "'Real women' are all shapes and sizes, all ethnicities, all levels of brave.

"I am a 'real woman' like every other woman in this world," she added, before deleting the Instagram post because it included the original poster's name.

The Instagram user who posted the negative critique has deleted their account.

In a long re-post on the same theme, Ridley opened up about her thoughts on body image and insisted she was happy with her looks.

"What's weird is most of the time I see such gorgeous messages from people around the world," her updated post began.

"People who relate to something in Rey they haven't found in a female character before ... People who loved that The Force Awakens has multiple incredible female characters.

"It is much more hurtful to continue to slate other women than BE a woman, BE a character, BE whoever you want to be."

Ridley concluded by thanking people who "celebrate each other" and included some advice for those who have a problem with anyone else: "Remember that expression, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

"Kindness isn't going to cure the world of all its awfulness but it's a good place to begin."

Thrust into the spotlight following the global success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Ridley has now started work on the next instalment in the blockbusting franchise.

She will be seen on screen in Star Wars Episode VIII in 2017 alongside BAFTA winner John Boyega and Mark Hamill.
