Carrie Fisher - Carrie Fisher Becomes Face Of Weight Loss Company

CARRIE FISHER, the American actress best known for playing the STAR WARS character 'Princess Leia', has acknowledged that she has a weight issue after being named the spokesperson for diet organisation 'Jenny Craig', reports the UK's Daily Mail. The 54-year-old admits that she turned to junk food after her father EDDIE FISHER died last September.
After being unveiled as the new spokesperson for the company, Fisher will now take the diet programme herself and admitted, "I'm fat. All the clothes in my closet belong to another chick. They have to make a new alphabet for my bra size". The actress weighed just 105lbs during the filming of STAR WARS but she admits to gaining weight three years ago after going on the road for her one-woman show 'Wishful Drinking', saying, "I would just graze, but I didn't do it healthy - it was like putting on the feed bag". Fisher says that her decision to sign up as the face of 'Jenny Craig' was partly influenced by reading comments from bloggers, she said, "I look on the Internet and they say, 'Whatever happened to Carrie Fisher? She used to be so hot and now she looks like Elton John. I was really hurt".
Fisher's made an EMMY AWARD nominated guest-appearance on the sitcom '30 Rock' back in 2007 and she appeared in the seventh season of hit US show 'Entourage' last summer.

The death of her father as an excuse for weight gain....and her upbringing as an excuse for booze, failed marriages. and pills...."Oh poor poor pitiful me....".....Yeah, Jenny Craig..you really need a spokesperson like Ms Fisher!

Hey haters, go back to your twinkies and leave Carrie Fisher alone! We've all been there at one point or another.Carrie is not acting like a "victim," she is actually being proactive and is doing something about her weight gain, while making extra money at the same time. What's so wrong with that?

Carrie, you are a beautiful lady inside and out. You are funny and sweet, very pretty now as well as when you were 105. The weight in this country is out of control. Who says you have to look like Barbie (who doesnt exist w/o thowing up and starving to death). You go girl. Do what you want, BUT only do it for yourself. not for the bad things you read. And dont google yourself. People are very rude and mean as you well know. Take care babe!

Good for her. Trials and tributions connect us all in life. Too bad about the two earlier comments. Seeing anyone soar after being in the darkness of life is always reaffirming.

To mohrsa49.....no objections to people who have risen above their circumstance ...praise them...but with Ms. Fisher, I suspect that she relishes in the knowledge that people love a good "Pity Party" and are willing to shelve out money to hear about it.. ( more the pity for them)....and so I question her actual sincerity...better to praise the silent heros among us who seek no public approval and no public dollars....they are all around us!and to surpriseitswendy.....I never ate a twinkie and I never will...that means more for you.
