Now there’s a winning headline, ‘Billie Lourd loves chicken fingers‘ but thankfully we learn a lot more about the actress behind the sequel trilogy character of Lieutenant Kaydel Ko Connix as she chats with Paper Magazine about a multitude of things, including her late mother Carrie Fisher.
Do you get much attention on social media from fans of your mom or your grandma, or are those people all too old, like me, for social media?
Actually, my mom has tons of fan accounts, and it’s so, so nice to get to see because they have all these pictures that I haven’t seen and I wouldn’t see unless they posted them. So it’s really, really nice, because I kind of get to connect with my mom and grandma every day through social media, through these people that support them. It’s really lovely.
One of my favorite pictures on the J Brand post is the one where you have a bare midriff. Is that a look you would really wear out on the street or is that just a photo-shoot only look?
I’ve been trying to show my stomach a little bit more. One of the things my mom said when I was younger all the time was, “I wish I would’ve flaunted my body more when I had it.” So, you know, I’ll show a belly button out here and there, but I usually try to keep it covered. But, you know what, I don’t know, I’m 26, I’ve only got like two more years of showing it, so I might as well do it now.
