Daisy Ridley says she is not that into social media.

Unlike most starlets of her age, the 23-year-old British actress does not like to go to social media to share her life, saying that she has been turned off by the negativity and trolling that is all too common on the internet today.

“I kind of loathe to go on social media. I find the trolling unacceptable and I never wanted to look like I was someone who would accept that,” Daisy Ridley recently admitted to Refinery29. “But the 99 — no, I would actually say 100% of the people [who've interacted with me on social media] have been so wonderful so far.”

She added, “My life is real average, and it’s nice to share that with people. And to see people’s conspiracies and their theories, that’s fun. It’s really fun to be part of.”

Meanwhile, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens star shared a cute moment on stage with her costar John Boyega during the much-anticipated premiere held Friday night at the Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay Hotel in Urayasu, Japan.

The two actors were joined by co-stars Adam Driver, BB-8 and director J.J. Abrams for the opening of the film that is expected to earn billions of dollars for Disney and LucasFilms.

According to Just Jared, Jr., Daisy Ridley was a gracious star and took some time to take a photo or two with fans when she arrived back stateside at LAX airport in Los Angeles.
