The 24-year-old actress has admitted she wants to be in Felicity's shoes and be on the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' press tour, and although Daisy has admitted '''jealous' is the wrong word'' she does feel a little bit of the green-eyed monster creeping in that Felicity will be on the road for 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'.
Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, the brunette beauty - who played Rey in the movie - said: ''It was weird, I've talked so much retrospectively about what was going on [in the lead-up to 'Force Awakens'].

'Mad Max: Fury Road' and 'Spectre' were also big winners.
Just when you thought film awards season was over, the 2016 Jameson Empire Awards rolled in last night (March 20th 2016) to heap some much deserved praise on the epic of the year 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'; a film which didn't manage to land an Oscar and wasn't even recognised at the Golden Globes in spite of its enormous appeal.

If she's not a 'real woman', we don't know who is.
In a world where people are trying to break down beauty stereotypes and body-shaming, seeing a celebrity get criticized because of their slender frame seems rather pathetic.

The record-breaking box office smash received a staggering 11 nominations, including for its young stars John Boyega and Daisy Ridley.
