    Los Angeles, Oct 12 (PTI) "Star Wars" actor Daisy Ridley says she struggled with the pressures of fame and turned to therapy for help.

    The actor says she had a tough time dealing with the success which came with "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", reported Vogue magazine.

    "Everything was so confusing. People were recognising me - I still don't know how to handle it. My skin got really bad because I was stressed. It was crippling. I just felt so seen and so self-conscious...

    "I went and saw a lovely lady. I felt like I was sort of reducing myself because I was so worried that people would recognise me. (Then I thought) 'You know what? I want to dance through life. I don't want to scuttle.'" Ridley says.

    The 25-year-old actor says she was shocked when some fans came to her house looking for autographs.

    "I heard a knock on the door. These two guys went, 'Hey, Daisy, can I get an autograph?' and I literally went, 'No way.' My mum said to me, 'Everyone's trying to take ownership of you.
