Daisy Ridley can’t imagine herself in a comedy film because she doesn’t think she’s funny enough.

The 27-year-old recently bid farewell to her character Rey as the Star Wars trilogy came to an end with The Rise of Skywalker, and now she’s keen to expand her acting chops, but there’s one genre she’s steering well clear of.

“The one thing I can’t see myself doing is comedy because I don’t think I’m a funny person – but I could be the straight person,” she told Variety. “Also, you know, it’s time to be brave. So, I’ll go for it!”

Daisy really wants to land a role in a horror movie, even though she’s scared of watching them on the big screen.

“I’m terrified of horror films, but I like them. So I’d like to be in one. But I think it would also, like, screw me up a bit,” she laughed. “I feel like you’d have to be living with your family to exorcise the bad juju when you left set.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Daisy also admitted that since working on Star Wars alongside a huge star-studded cast – including Adam Driver, John Boyega, Mark Hamill and the late Carrie Fisher – she’s drawn to starring in movies in which she feels part of a big group.

“Well, my main thing – which is why I did Orient Express immediately afterwards – is I really like to be part of the group,” the British actress said, noting her 2017 film, Murder on the Orient Express. “And I’ve only really done one like leading thing, which was Ophelia, which was overwhelming. I like to be part of a group of people.”

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.

Michelle Pfeiffer has finally realised her dream of releasing a fragrance collection at the age of 60.

The actress is taking on an exciting new venture outside of the film world after unveiling a collection of five scents, called Henry Rose, and she couldn’t be more thrilled to finally share the perfume line with the world.

During a new interview with InStyle magazine, Michelle reveals she had been considering the idea for decades, after she began raising children.

“When the kids were young, I began to look at the world in a different way,” she tells the publication. “I started reading labels and looking at ingredients lists in a way I hadn’t done before. That opened my eyes. I found myself looking for a fragrance I could feel good about putting on my body and that smelled amazing.

“Those two things were difficult to find, so I decided I was going to see if I could develop a fragrance that would raise the bar on both quality and safety. I didn’t realise what a challenge I had set out for myself, which is typical of me.”

The exciting new release doesn’t mean she has lost her passion for acting – the star returned to film and TV last year (17) after taking a five year hiatus, appearing in mother!, Murder on the Orient Express and Ant-Man and the Wasp. She also appeared on the small screen in Wizard of Lies, a role which earned her an Emmy nomination. And she admits running a perfume brand while taking on a series of roles has not been easy.

“Starting a business at the same time as I started working again… I’m not complaining,” she says. “It’s a high-class problem. It’s better to feel as if there’s not enough time in a day than to wake up wondering how you’re going to fill it.”

Olivia Colman: ‘Movie sex with Emma Stone was awfully fun’

Actress Olivia Colman thoroughly enjoyed her lesbian movie romp with Emma Stone in period drama The Favourite.

The Murder on the Orient Express star portrays real-life British royal Queen Anne in the new film, which is set in the 18th century and chronicles her close relationships and rumoured lesbian affairs with Lady Sarah Churchill and her cousin, Abigail Masham, who develop a bitter rivalry as they compete to become the monarch’s closest confidante.

Emma plays Masham, opposite Rachel Weisz as Churchill, and Olivia admits the shoot was particularly memorable for the intimate scenes she shared with the La La Land actress.

“It was awfully fun having sex with Emma Stone,” she smirked during a cast press conference at the Venice International Film Festival on Thursday (30Aug18), ahead of the movie’s premiere.

“It was really fun having sex with you too,” replied Emma, before making it clear the steamy scenes weren’t for real, adding, “We didn’t really!”

Aside from the love scenes, Colman explained the role was a “joy” to tackle “because she sort of feels everything”.

“She’s just a woman who is underconfident (sic) and doesn’t know if anyone genuinely loves her,” the Brit mused. “She has too much power, too much time on her hands.”

The Favourite, which also co-stars Nicholas Hoult, Joe Alwyn, and Mark Gatiss, is Colman’s second project with director Yorgos Lanthimos, after previously working together on the critically-acclaimed The Lobster in 2015.

It screened in competition for the festival’s prestigious Golden Lion award.
