Stewart can empathise with the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' actress because she was propelled to stardom through the 'Twilight' blockbuster franchise when she was just 17 years old.

Asked what advice she'd give Daisy, 23, Kristen told The Hollywood Reporter: "Focus on the fact that you're stoked 'cause you're doing the work that you want to do. It's literally mainly just about focusing on what makes you happy. And if losing your anonymity or whatever doesn't make you happy, then focus on something else."

Daisy - who plays Rey in the box-office-smashing sci-fi flick - was also offered advice by co-star Harrison Ford, which she said was more of "warning" than anything else.

She previously said: "It wasn't really advice. It was more of a warning. He said that the anonymity thing is difficult, because as creative people you look to other people for inspiration and suddenly people are looking at you."

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' was Daisy's first role on the big screen and next she will voice the lead character in the North American flick by Studio Ghibli 'Only Yesterday'.

The movie is set to be released in the United States early next year.
