'Star Wars' Actress Carrie Fisher Slams Body Shamers: 'Youth and Beauty Are Not Accomplishments'
While Star Wars: The Force Awakens dominates the box office and is set to become the highest grossing movie of all time, actress Carrie Fisher is going after those who have shamed her online about her weight in the new film.
She also hit back on the social network to say: “Please stop debating about whether or not I aged well. Unfortunately it hurts my feelings. My BODY hasn’t aged as well as I have.”
She also tweeted:

Earlier in the month, the actress said she was told to lose weight for returning to the franchise.
She told Good Housekeeping: “They don’t want to hire all of me – only about three-quarters!”
Fisher added that she was pressured to lose about 35 pounds to portray the intergalactic princess.
"Nothing changes; it's an appearance-driven thing," Fisher said.
"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."
