File this under “Stuff We Absolutely Don’t Want to See.”
In this age of internet inspired oversharing and TMI, we are subject to far too many “visions” that we simply don’t need to see. The site of a 54-year-old Carrie Fisher in the “Star Wars” sequel metal bikini she donned as a prisoner/slave of Jabba the Hutt is one of ‘em. In her ’20s, she looked good. But at age 54 . . . please, make it stop.
Fisher is the new Jennie Craig girl. And she’s so proud of the 50 pounds she lost, she’s threatening to don the “Return of the Jedi” bikini of Hutt fame again. Please, don’t do it. She also says of herself, “I wouldn’t kick me out of bed.” Um, that’s debatable. In the oversharing/TMI category, Fisher also tells us how much weight she’s lost in her breasts, er . . . “the sisters.” Oy. I repeat, PLEASE, Make It Stop!
Actress Carrie Fisher, 54, best known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies, says she’ll squeeze back into that famous Return of the Jedi bikini on one condition:
“I will do it if a whole bunch of women over 40 come to Yankee Stadium. We’ll put everyone in metal bikinis, and we will sit around and laugh and talk about the old days when we ate a lot.”
Sadly, you know there are other over-40s who will oblige. Get ready for your eyes to hurt.
Fisher would like to lose an additional 8 pounds or so, especially in her stomach and “the sisters” (her chest), she says.
“I’m at war with my chest. I’ve lost 10 inches in the sisters. That must have meant that I had an end table under my chin. I have exhausted the alphabet on bra sizes and had to go to Sanskrit.” . . .
Fisher says when she saw the new photo of herself in the suit, she thought, “I wouldn’t kick me out of bed.”
Where’s Darth Vader when you need him?
