"I mean, I am a lady who still has the Star Wars comforter she got in 1977 on her bed. I have action figures displayed all around my house. I wrote a song about seeing Star Wars when I was in an indie rock band. I waited in line for six weeks in a tent for Phantom Menace. I have an Amidala symbol tattooed on my body. So, you know, Star Wars is a pretty big deal to me."
