Star Wars Actress Carrie Fisher Hits Back At Body Shaming And Ageist Remarks
The Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress returned alongside co-star Harrison Ford for the new film, and now she's slammed body shamers in an epic Twitter rant...
Carrie Fisher, star of the orginal Star Wars trilogy and the new film, The Force Awakens , has taken to Twitter to respond to "fans" who have criticised the way she looks in JJ Abrams's sequel.
The 59-year-old actress made a much-anticipated return as Princess Leia in the latest instalment of Star Wars: The Force Awakens , which has broken records across the world. But, despite the rave reviews and worldwide success of the new film, Fisher was forced to defend herself on social media, pleading with people to stop debating her appearance.
Here's what 'Princess Leia' looked like back then...
And here's what the stunning actress looks like now...
Taking to Twitter, she wrote: "Please stop debating about whether or not I have aged well. Unfortunately it hurts all 3 of my feelings. My body hasn't aged as well as I have. Blow us."

After re-tweeting some of the negative criticism she'd received about her appearance in The Force Awakens , the actress also shared some words of wisdom: "Youth and beauty are not accomplishments, they're the temporary happy."
