If you haven’t seen Star Wars: Force Awakens, then I just feel sorry for you. You’re missing out on one of the best movies of 2016 and an incredible reboot/sequel (we really need a word for this. Requel?) to the classic sci-fi franchise.
Of course, one of the highlights of the film was Daisy Ridley’s performance as Rey, the abandoned scrap collector turned (SPOILER ALERT) Jedi badass. They’re in the midst of filming the eighth Star Wars movie right now, which means Daisy’s currently in badass Sith fighting mode. And she was willing to prove it with a video she posted on her Instagram. Take a look:
Much like her character Rey who (again, SPOILER ALERT) is training with Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, Daisy has also been pushing herself to the physical limit, which she also documents on her Instagram:
@gravzy12 has returned and #fridayfitness is here! Working on controlling the eccentric (slow on the way down) for injury prevention. For this week only this video features: me falling out of a press up, jack correcting my deadlift tekkers, me and him having a DMC during spider bicep curls and a post workout ice bath. THAT’S how I get through work outs, lots of chat to distract me from the pain! 😄💪🏻💩 #GAAAAAAINZ #toostrongfortoolong #likemaryjbligesaid
There was an UNBELIEVABLE amount of swearing (cursing to you Americans!) during today’s workout. I decided to eliminate them but oooooosh it was a tough one; I needed an incredible amount of encouragement from my trainer-just-for-this-week Ben! #fitnessfriday #gainz #swoledier #butforrealmybackishench #allthoselukeskywalkerpiggybacks #lalala
And here are a few other gems from Daisy’s Instagram page:
3 of these statements aren’t true… Social media is great but also a bit scary cause what people post is the most filtered, most carefully chosen and cleverly edited moments of their lives. And self esteem is a huge issue for people around the world. My skin isn’t great so I don’t post no make up selfies, much as I’d like to; I have a trainer urging me on in workouts and don’t include all the times I say ‘I can’t do it’ and I don’t smile all the time but I like to share the pictures where I am. But I actually do love myself, I try to think good thoughts always and am surrounded by the most wonderful people, so I’m keeping it balanced (like the Force, obvs). Just thought I’d say :)
We tried all sorts of poses but I definitely look best in this glorious selfie. FIRST BASKETBALL GAME!!! I got a jersey, a cap and a foam hand and ate pizza cause that’s how we DO! Thank you so much for the birthday love y'all! Seriously feeling it! So grateful for the past year and excited for this one! 🙅🏻🙅🏻🙅🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🍰🍰🍰
And if you were curious, here is my personal favorite GIF of Daisy:
Seriously, if you’re not pumped for the new Star Wars trilogy, I don’t know what could possibly bring you joy on this Earth.
