"My body hasn't aged as well as I have," Carrie Fisher tweeted
Carrie Fisher wants people to stop talking about her appearance.
“My body hasn’t aged as well as I have,” she continued. “Blow us.”
Fisher previously spoke about being pressured to lose over 35 lbs. to reprise her role of Princess Leia.
“They don’t want to hire all of me – only about three-quarters!” she told Good Housekeeping U.K. “Nothing changes, it’s an appearance-driven thing. I’m in a business where the only thing that matters is weight and appearance. That is so messed up. They might as well say get younger, because that’s how easy it is.”
She told the magazine there is an unhealthy societal obsession with weight, especially in Los Angeles.
“We treat beauty like an accomplishment and that is insane,” said Fisher. “Everyone in L.A. says, ‘Oh you look good,’ and you listen for them to say, ‘You’ve lost weight.’ It’s never ‘How are you?’ or ‘You seem happy!’ “
