Anyone that has been following Carrie Fisher’s press appearances leading up to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens knows that Carrie Fischer is not to be fucked with. Just as she shut down those dumb dumbs who spoke out against Princess Leia’s iconic bronze bikini, now she’s shutting down the jerks who keep saying she isn’t “aging well” with this glorious tweet:
Please stop debating about whetherOR not?aged well.unfortunately it hurts all3 of my feelings.My BODY hasnt aged as well as I have.Blow us??

Guys, Fisher is 59-years-old and she looks pretty damn good to me. Sure, another actress might have gone under the knife countless times and spent an absurd amount of time and energy to remain bronze-bikini ready, but Fischer was busy writing books (thirteen, to be exact, including her autobiography “Wishful Drinking,” based on her one-woman stage show of the same name) and taking care of her bulldog, Gary. She’s aged like a regular human being and done a lot of awesome shit in the meantime. Leave Carrie Fisher’s body, which shall henceforth be referred to as a “brain bag,” alone.
Fisher admitted to Good Housekeeping UK she was pressured to shed some 35lbs in order to reprise her role as Leia, saying, “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.”
Keep using that brain bag to spread the good word, Fisher. We love you just the way you are.
