Carrie Fisher: ‘Princess Leia Had To Lose 35 Pounds!’

Carrie Fisher had a nasty awakening when she returned as Princess Leia for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens!”

The 59-year-old feminist was ordered to drop 35 pounds!

“They don’t want to hire all of me,” Carrie told Good Housekeeping.

“Only about three-quarters!”

Carrie had fought lots of real-life star wars in Hollywood over the years, though, and was resigned to how Hollywood didn’t want any full-figured gals in space!

“She knew it was coming when she got the phone call,” added a pal.

“Carrie had finally felt successful enough as a novelist to quit worrying about her image — but the allure of one last comeback was just too much!”

At least Carrie skipped the trip to a plastic surgeon — and told Good Housekeeping that she dropped the weight the old-fashioned way.

“I did it the same way everybody has to — don’t eat, and exercise more!”

Carrie is still remaining outspoken about being torn over agreeing to lose the weight, though.

“I don’t like that it makes me feel good about myself,” she said.

“It’s not who I am!

The ENQUIRER has already reported on how Carrie takes pride in being a sex symbol from her turn in a gold-bikini slave uniform in “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi” — but now she’s tired of L.A.’s obsession with fitness!

“We treat beauty like an accomplishment,” said Carrie.

“Everyone in L.A. says, ‘Oh, you look good,’ and you listen for them to say you’ve lost weight.

“It’s never ‘How are you?’ or ‘You seem happy!'”
