Billy Dee Williams recently revealed in an interview with Esquire that they use both 'himself' and 'herself' pronouns.

And the Empire Strikes Back actor, 82, took the stage at the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker global press conference  in Pasadena, California on Wednesday... just days after the news broke.

The Lando Calrissian actor looked sharp for the star-studded event, donning a loose-fitting gray shirt and a black silk scarf.

On Williams' lower half they wore dark trousers and walked with a cane.

While speaking with Matt Miller in the Esquire piece, Billy Dee opened up about comfortable feelings on gender.

'You see I say "himself" and "herself," because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine,' the actor revealed.

'I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself.' 

The Brian's Song actor was joined by a galaxy of other Star Wars supernovas, including the latest trilogy's new young heroes Daisy Ridley and John Boyega.

Daisy Ridley, 27, dazzled in a tartanoff-the-shoulder top, worn with houndstooth patterned pants.

The Murder on the Orient Express actress wore her dark tresses pulled back so as to expose her fine feature.

She wore just a dab of berry lip for the appearance, which was hosted by famed director Ava DuVernay.
