- Carrie Fisher, who is returning to her role as Princess Leia in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has some advice for the female lead of the new film: “Fight for your outfit.”

Fisher interviewed Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey in the new film, in Interview magazine this week, and the discussion turned to Fisher’s famed bikini outfit, which she wore while held prisoner in 1983’s Return of the Jedi:

FISHER: Listen! I am not a sex symbol, so that's an opinion of someone. I don't share that.
RIDLEY: I don't think that's the right—
FISHER: Word for it? Well, you should fight for your outfit. Don't be a slave like I was.
RIDLEY: All right, I'll fight.
FISHER: You keep fighting against that slave outfit.
RIDLEY: I will.

The Force Awakens will be released December 18.
