Celebrating 26 years of this ~Rey~ of hope.
That time she stole my calming regimen, and I wasn’t even mad about it.
Interviewer: How have you been calming yourself over the last eight hours?
Daisy: I ate some guacamole and I had a half a glass of rosé, and that was great!
That time she called out everyone who wouldn’t let Rey be her own person.
Daisy: I do think it’s hilarious that there’s this great character [Rey], and everyone is trying to attribute it to another character.
That time she trained like a BOSS.

And that time she was like, “Oh yeah, there are men in space, too.”
Daisy: I mean, as we can see, there is Gwendoline, Carrie, and Lupita, so it feels incredible to be a art of a film with other incredible women. And other men! It's cool.
Every single time she goofed in The Last Jedi and was a precious angel about it.

Josh: [Imitating Daisy under anesthesia] It's Luke Skywalker! He's my daddy!
And that time she appreciated the importance of naps.

That time she said she’d marry Leia during a game of “Snog, Marry, Avoid,” and I had a stroke.
Daisy: I'd marry Leia, 'cause she's cool.
And that time she noted that “Leia was a babe,” and I had ANOTHER stroke.
Daisy: I mean, I think I was always like, “Leia was a babe.” I wasn't like, “The guys aren't good-looking,” but Leia was so kick-ass and vulnerable and all those kind of great qualities that make you warm to someone.
That time she rapped with John Boyega, and it was the best thing that ever happened.

And that time she knew all of the lyrics to Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”
Daisy: [Rapping] “His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy. There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti. He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop bombs, but he keeps on forgetting what he wrote down. The whole crowd goes so loud. He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out he's choking, how? Everybody's joking now. The clock's run out, times up, over, pow.”
That time she DRAGGED haters for body-shaming her.

That time she proved she’s the most down to Earth human being alive.
Daisy: I think what's lucky about me is I've always been blown away by everything. I'm very grateful for everything that happens. For instance, I was driving through L.A. on Sunday morning, turned the corner, and there was a hawk trying to take off with a squirrel! I was like WHOA!
And, of course, any time she has #Blessed us with her delightful snarly face.
