Carrie Fisher Tells People To Stop Debating Whether She Aged Well


Star Wars star Carrie Fisher took to social media earlier today to take fans to task for dwelling on her appearance, saying that it doesn't matter whether she's "aged well," because youth and beauty are temporary.

Fisher became a sex symbol in the '70s and '80s following the release of the original Star Wars, which has made her a frequent target for snarky observations about her age and weight since.

You can see a few of her tweets below:

While she's also retweeted a few supportive comments from fans, not everyone has been understanding; at least a couple of trolls have already popped up, and she's retweeting them, as well.

Fisher, who talked openly about studio demands that she slim down for The Force Awakens, is not shy when it comes to discussing her feelings about Hollywood's obsession with appearances. She's talked about that, among many other things, in previous interviews, books and more.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan & Abrams, features a cast including actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. They will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters December 18, 2015, kicking off a new trilogy of Saga films as Episodes VIII and IX are already scheduled. The film garnered a record $247 million at the domestic box office and $529 million globally in its opening weekend.

    "When 900 years old you reach, look as good, you will not." Honestly, I never even thought about how Carrie Fisher aged until I started seeing these articles popping up on the internet. She looks like someone who has aged. She does not look like someone who has spent time and money having surgery or caking on make-up to hide the fact that she is human.
