Carrie Fisher tells it straight (p)

This was posted on Growing Bolder:
Way to go Carrie! Carrie Fisher wore the famous Star Wars slave bikini when she was 27. She’s now 59 and back as General Leia Organa in “The Force Awakens.” Apparently, some viewers thought she should look exactly as she did 32 years ago. Fisher has been the subject of online body-shaming and hateful social media posts following the opening the film. She responded with her own tweets: “Please stop debating about whether or not I aged well. Youth and beauty are not accomplishments, they’re the temporary happy by-products of time and/or DNA. Don’t hold your breath for either.” Fisher admitted earlier this year that she was pressured to lose 35 pounds for the role. “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.”
