KEVIN POLOWY: In defending, I guess, his favorite Star Wars actor Gina Carano recently, Texas Senator Ted Cruz seemed to take a shot at Rey--

DAISY RIDLEY: Did he?

KEVIN POLOWY: --saying Gina's character-- He was-- Yeah. He said she was not some, quote, unquote, emotionally tortured Jedi.

DAISY RIDLEY: Hilarious.

KEVIN POLOWY: I was going to ask you if you had any response to that but apparently you did not see that.

[LAUGHS]

DAISY RIDLEY: I did not know and I'm very happy to be an emotionally tortured Jedi who doesn't leave their state when it's having a terrible time.

KEVIN POLOWY: Speaking of chaos walking.

DAISY RIDLEY: Yes.

KEVIN POLOWY: Those pictures of him coming back from the airport.

DAISY RIDLEY: From Cancun or whatever. Yeah.
