Hooray for Carrie Fisher
There is this thing liberals do called Body Shaming in which they mock people's weight. They alternate this with complaining about the Barbie Doll giving girls an impossible-to-meet body image.
(Yes, no girl can be only 11.5 inches tall -- Editor.)
Carrie Fisher fought back against those who are aghast that she no longer has the same body she had at 21 when she filmed the first (and only one worth seeing) "Star Wars" 38 years ago.
She tweeted: “Please stop debating about whether or not I aged well. Unfortunately it hurts all three of my feelings.”
That fed the trolls, so she responded again: "My body is my brain bag, it hauls me around to those places and in front of faces where theres something to say or see."
Actually, she looks good. Maybe not leading lady good, but she looks like a young Kelly Osbourne.
Some believe Carrie Fisher is complaining, but I look upon it as being honest. People prefer not to see old people on their movie screen.
She is now a writer who reprised her role as Princess Leia in this latest "Star Wars" project. Acting is based on looks, which she explained to Good Housekeeping: “They don’t want to hire all of me – only about three-quarters! 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.”
Well, she had a nice run and at the end of her movie career, she landed a book deal, and wrote well enough to warrant a movie deal. So there you have it. Life's not fair? Well, she was famous at birth (Mom and Dad were singer/actors). I like her. I like her answers. My only complaint is that Princess Leia is now General Leia. Not queen?
