Carrie Fisher has spoken with Good Housekeeping about Star Wars The Force Awakens and the pressure she felt to drop weight for the movie...
I love Carrie Fisher so I hate to hear that she felt she had to drop weight for her role in The Force Awakens.
Listening to Ms. Fisher talk about her childhood, her mother and the way her sense of self worth and self esteem were connected to how she felt she was perceived by her father, makes one question why we would insist a person conform to an ideal, even if it's difficult to attain.
As i understand it Mark Hamill also has to go to great lengths to slim down to return as Luke Skywalker, id be interested to read his thoughts on the subject. Read the full Carrie Fisher interview here.
