Carrie Fisher to New Star Wars Actress Daisy Ridley: Don’t Wear the Gold Bikini.

The Princess Leia actress interviewed the British newcomer, 23, for Interview Magazine’s Nov. issue, and asked if she’s prepared to enter the fantasies of millions of fans after Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters. Carrie Fisher is sharing her years of accumulated “Star Wars” wisdom with her new “Force Awakens” co-star Daisy Ridley, including a sage piece of advice about potentially sexist costume choices. “You should fight for your outfit,” Fisher said in an interview between herself and Ridley for Interview Magazine. “Don’t be a slave like I was.” “You keep fighting against that slave outfit,” Fisher insisted.Be free, girl! had an entertaining conversation with Star Wars’ newest female lead, London native , for the upcoming issue of Interview magazine — and the veteran actress gave the newcomer some sage advice.

Fanboys may still salivate over the scene from the 1983 flick, “Return of the Jedi,” in which her character, Princess Leia, is forced into scantily clad servitude to Jabba the Hutt. She also warned Ridley, “it’s hard to date once you’re a big ‘Star Wars’ star because you don’t want to give people the ability to say, ‘I had sex with Princess Leia.’” The costume discussion was prompted by Fisher warning Ridley that her life will change once “The Force Awakens” hits theaters: “You’re going to have people have fantasies about you! Fisher also talked to the young actress about how she’s preparing herself to go from a virtual unknown to the star of one of the biggest film franchises of all time.

Ridley says she gets asked this question a lot but still isn’t sure how to brace herself. “I don’t know if I can prepare for what’s to come because I don’t know what will.” They sent me a ‘Star Wars’ suitcase,” Fisher told Ridley. “I want you and I to go to Vegas with all the swag and act like we’re normal people carrying ‘Star Wars’ suitcases that they just sent me — hats, dresses. That “slave” outfit was long thought to be an addition in response to Fisher’s complaints that Leia’s costumes were too manly in the first two movies. The freewheeling interview between Ridley and Fisher in Interview magazine is full of so many gems it’s tempting to copy-paste the entire thing—Fisher is her frank, funny self, and Ridley keeps up surprisingly well. Girl-vel!” But it’s the exchange about costumes—and particularly the infamous Slave Leia costume—that’s both hilarious and moving, in that Fisher genuinely seems to be trying to undo the mistakes of the past and benefit Ridley in the process.

We haven’t yet seen any costumes for Rey that suggest anything as revealing—or troubling—as the Slave Leia bikini, and Fisher wants to make sure Ridley keeps it that way:
