Carrie Fisher Tells Trolls To Blow Her


CARRIE FISHER, ALSO KNOWN AS
PRINCESS LEIA FROM THE ORIGINAL STAR WARS TRILOGY, TOOK
TO TWITTER THIS WEEK TO GET BACK AT SOME TROLLS WHO
CRITICIZED HER BODY NOW COMPARED TO HER DAYS
IN THE GOLD BIKINI. USING A PICTURE OF HER NOW, THIS
IS BACK IN 1983, AND THIS IS THE PICTURE, OBVIOUSLY, THE ICONIC PICTURE OF PRINCESS LEIA. SHE HAS BEEN GETTING A LOT OF
CRITICISM FOR HER BODY AND HER AGE PROCESS, AND SHE
RESPONDED BY TWEETING, “PLEASE STOP DEBATING ABOUT
WHETHER OR NOT I AGED WELL. UNFORTUNATELY IT HURTS ALL
THREE OF MY FEELINGS. MY BODY HASN’T AGED AS
WELL AS I HAVE, BLOW US.” SHE SAID THAT WE TREAT BEAUTY
LIKE A COMPLIMENT, AND THAT IS INSANE. I DON’T KNOW WHAT HURTS ALL
THREE OF MY FEELINGS MEANS, MAYBE YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS,
BUT I TOTALLY DIG HER RESPONSE. I LOVE THAT SHE IS GIVING THE
MIDDLE FINGER TO THE TROLLS. THIS IS A TOPIC THAT IS NEAR AND
DEAR TO MY HEART, SO I LIKE THAT SHE IS STANDING
UP FOR HERSELF. WHAT SHE IS SAYING IS, YOU THINK
YOU WERE GOING TO BOTHER ME? I AM TOUGH, I AM PRINCESS LEIA. I GOT THREE FEELINGS,
YOU REALLY HURT THEM. BASICALLY THIS, THE
EQUIVALENT ON TWITTER. I LOVE THE WAY SHE IS UNABASHED. FIRST OF ALL, WE ALL AGED, THAT
IS WHAT HAPPENS TO HUMAN BEINGS. SHE EXPLAINED THAT, EVEN IN THIS
STAR WARS, EVEN THE PEOPLE THAT MADE THE MOVIE SAID COULD
YOU KIND OF MAYBE LOSE THIRTY-FIVE POUNDS? SHE IS LIKE, NO I CANNOT, THAT
IS LIKE ASKING ME TO GO BACK IN TIME. COULD YOU KIND OF BE
TWENTY YEARS YOUNGER? THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE. SHE SAID THEY WANTED HER
TO LOSE A THIRD OF HER. I THINK SHE LOOKS PHENOMENAL. SHE SAID THAT A THIRD OF HER
BODY IS BASICALLY JUST A BAG FOR HER BRAIN. THAT IS ASHLEY MY WORST, AND
THIS CARRIES ME AROUND WHERE I NEED TO BE. I DIG THAT SENTIMENT. SHE SAID MY BODY IS MY BRAIN
BAG, I’VE NEVER HEARD THAT PUT THAT WAY BEFORE. SHE SAID MY BODY CARRIES ME
AROUND TO ALL THOSE DIFFERENT PLACES SO THAT I CAN
SEE THINGS AND DO THINGS, BUT THIS IS THE REAL ME. BUT NOTHING BEATS THE END OF
THAT FIRST TWEET, THESE ARE MY SOPHISTICATED POINTS ABOUT YOUR TROLLING, AND BY THE
WAY BLOW ME. ODYSSEY A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE
SUPPORTING HER, SAYING THAT SHE ANNIHILATED THE TROLLS, BUT SOME
HEADLINES ARE ON THE OPPOSITION. A NEW YORK POST HEADLINE READ
THAT IF SHE DID NOT LIKE BEING JUDGED ON LOOKS THAT SHE SHOULD QUIT ACTING. YEAH, BECAUSE THAT IS
HOW THAT WORKS. I THINK WE SHOULD PLAY GAME OF,
GUESS THE GENDER OF THAT JOURNALIST, BUT WE
WILL SKIP THAT. THE LOGIC DOESN’T EVEN MAKE
SENSE, AND I FEEL AWFUL THAT THAT IS A SENTIMENT THAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY HAVE. ARE SOME STARS PICKED
BASED ON LOOKS? OF COURSE! DOES THAT ALSO APPLY TO SOME
MALES AS WELL AS FEMALES? OF COURSE. GEORGE CLOONEY, BRAD PITT,
TWO HUGE STARS, PRETTY GOOD-LOOKING DUDE’S. REINKE OSLO, BRADLEY COOPER. I DO NOT MISS THE TREND. CENK, YOU SEEM TO HAVE THESE
ACTORS ON THE TIP OF YOUR TONGUE. THEY ARE REALLY GOOD-LOOKING,
YOU HAVE TO GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE. ON THE OTHER HAND, NO DISRESPECT
ñ ONE SUMMARY SAYS THAT, IT IS ABOUT TO BE DISRESPECTFUL ñ DANNY DEVITO, JOHN MALKOVICH,
AND I COULD GO ON AND ON, BUT I SHOULD NOT. AND THOSE ARE SOME OF MY
FAVORITE ACTORS. BUT NOBODY SAYS I’M NOT CAN PUT
JOHN MALKOVICH IN A MOVIE BECAUSE OF HIS LOOKS. HE MAY NOT FIT THE WORLD, THAT
HAPPENS, THEY ARE ACTORS, THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO FIT
A CERTAIN ROLE. I GET THAT THE LEADING ACTORS
ARE MORE ATTRACTIVE AND YOUNGER, AND AS PART OF
HOLLYWOOD. BUT TO THINK, IF YOU ARE NOT ATTRACTIVE THEN YOU SHOULD GET A
DIFFERENT PROFESSION, WILL THAT IS ABSURD. THEY DON’T SAY THAT ABOUT MALE
STARS WERE CHARACTER ACTORS. BY THE WAY, SOME OF THE OLDER
ACTRESSES, HELEN MIRREN, LOOKS PHENOMENAL FOR HER
AGE, BUT STILL. I HOPE WE GET PAST THIS AT SOME
POINT, IT IS A SHAME THAT WE HAVE NOT YET.

  1. Love how Cenk seems to imply that trolls can't bother her. She was bothered. You don't say "blow us" to people that don't bother you. If you're going to say anything, you say it and leave it. Stoicism is how you beat a troll if you're going to respond. Ultimate way to beat a troll is to not say anything to them. If they're trolling and you give them your attention, they win.
    I don't know where this idea of praising someone for responding to naysayers who don't offer anything legitimate comes from.

  2. Imagine that…a clueless talking head bimbo doesn't get it /wonk wonk….imagine if she was an 6 instead of an 8…you wouldn't be listening to her reading the news out loud.

  3. I think people are starting misuse the word "troll". A troll is a insincere person who says ugly things to get a rise out of people. Not people with with ugly opinions. You don't get back at trolls, you feed them.

  4. Right on Carrie Fisher! Newspapers all over the world are shutting down their online comments sections because of the rivers of hate spewed by trolls. Trolls are usually racists and they're ALWAYS misogynists. None of them like women.

  5. They should've just did the digital video editing they did of Professor X in x-3.At this point CGI is so advanced if you just want to be made of graphics in a film you probably can & will be.

  6. she's still a beautiful woman. it's even better than she's a strong beautiful woman who isn't afraid to speak up about an unforgiving industry that has so much influence on our perception of ourselves. she's aged wondefully. she's a real woman. why do we judge a real woman for looking like a real woman. all these fillers and botox isn't the norm. it's sad but props to her for standing up for herself. I hope by the time I've aged as well as she does, we're able to move beyond all this superficial bull and go back to what really matters, ho we are as people and how we treat others and not these perfect personas nobody can live up to that have no right to judge someone else

  7. We like pretty people because we've evolved to find traits beneficial to our survival attractive. Our living conditions have changed such that strength and confidence are no longer as important as intelligence and empathy, because we don't hunt for our food any more, we've built up infrastructure and become a single living organism, unfortunately it happened so fast that our instincts haven't caught up

  8. what do u mean lets play guess the gender of the critic …………………dumb women r always bitching …..like …aaa look what she is wearing aaa look at her eyebrows or big ass or some shit…..who did she blow to get the part ………………….aaaand dumb man r also like aaa who wants to look at that who did she blow
    by saying guess what gender is that person u r being sexist ….u r basically saying ah no wonder that person parked like that they r a redhead or they have a crooked tooth …………..r u fucking kidding me …..r u retarded or smth
    and yes dumb people say the same thing about the male stars toooo and Mark Hamill…lost a ton of weight to be in like 3 seconds of the movie and it was pointless since he is dressed with something that can cover a late pregnancy

  9. New York Post has confused the superficial Beauty Pageants of The Dump for the emotional retards with the art of Acting… A Thespian is not a Bimbo in a bikini, but then again when was the last time someone confused the New York Post spew of xenophobic based propaganda with producing journalism???????????????????

  10. All the people who criticize celebrities for not aging well — I'd like to see how these critics age.

    It's just bullshit.

  11. I dont see any posts about Mark Hamill and how fat and old he looked in Ep. VII. It's a shame there's a double standard.

  12. "The Role" as Cenk put it, called for Leia to weigh less than she did. They didn't feel Leia should have packed on pounds, being a General and all. They asked her to fit the role. Sorry, that is the business.

  13. it's got nothing to do with age or looks, but seriously, stop injecting those lips, it's like she can't stop puckering those damn things

  14. I'm sorry but no one said that about Alec Guiness when he played the part of an aged general who had seen much of the galaxy and done great things. If anything, I doubt he could have rocked a gold bikini even when he was young.

  15. Do we really expect this 59 year old woman to look how she was decades ago? How many male actors look the same at 59 as they did at 20 or 30

  16. 59 YEAR OLD WOMAN, LOOKS LIKE A 59 YEAR OLD WOMAN!!! OMG, HOW DARE SHE FORCE HER NORMAL APPEARANCE UPON US?!?! MORTIFIED #ruinedStarWars

  17. She looks like a normal 60 year old woman to me. What's wrong with how she's aged?

    I do have one bone to pick with her comments. Beauty is often an accomplishment. There's a certain amount genetics involved but if you think people maintain perfectly toned bodies and styled hair, makeup and wardrobe without significant effort, you're just ignorant. Hate to break it to you, but 99% of ratchet people have no medical reason to be fat. You're just too lazy to go to a gym or put more effort into your appearance. Stop whining.

    Also, this young, blond woman who has perfectly styled hair, coordinates her outfits and wears makeup pretending she's all about her body just being a vehicle for her brain. Please. You could spread that irony on toast with some jelly.

  18. She didn't need to lose thirty five pounds to look better or to be healthy. She needed to lose thirty five pounds because she is supposed to be a general in an intergalactic space movie set in the future. I am pretty sure such a person would be able to maintain a healthy weight.

  19. Well, I agree with Cenk and Hannah here, but, Hannah, the reason you don't get the "3 feelings" remark is because it's clever and witty.  Do yourself a favor and read one or two of her books, especially "Postcards from the Edge" and "Wishful Drinking"; they're windows into the fascinating and funny mind of a phenomenal woman.

  20. Folks, do yourselves a favor and read some of Carrie Fischer's books and novels. The woman is a national treasure, and as far as I'm concerned, when I'm 59 I'll be happy to look half as good as she does.

  21. I wish more people would think like this in the MUSIC industry as well. Or would you rather have more formulaic, synthetic, auto-tuned garbage?

  22. The only thing that bothered me about Carrie Fisher in The Force Awakens was how wooden her acting was. It was wonderful to see her in that role again, but her performance was pretty blase.

  23. please leave her alone it's her body and I think she looks great there is just one beautiful Leah she can not stay young forever you go girl do what ever you like

  24. I liked Carrie more as is in the new movie. It made more sense that her character would follow certain paths and end up being the character she portrayed in the new movie. Carrie, F*&% the naysayers, 'cause they don't mean a thing, just remember what style you bring.

  25. I have to point out when Val Kilmer got old and fat people ragged on him and I don't remember any one leaping to his defense. Be mindful that when it comes to gender some double standards cut both ways.

  26. are people really commenting on her looks? or is it really about how horrible she was in the movie. I mean her lines and her delivery were all shit. She was easily the worst part of the force awakens.

  27. I suffer some similar mental afflictions as Carrie Fisher does, and she has been open and honest about her afflictions throughout the years. But, when I heard you say "All 3 of my feelings" it felt like she was actually talking about herself in three parts, which is something that is common for people with BiPolar or Schizophrenic conditions. There is nothing wrong with having these conditions, and nothing wrong with making jokes about them, but they aren't always understood very well. The world she lives in and the world she sees through her eyes is vastly different from the average person. I think that she may very well have been saying that you are hurting the feelings of the three Carrie Fishers in her head, and blow me because I don't care about what you think, I have my own struggles going on in my own head that are more important than your unimaginative trolling.

  28. If lea looked too young, the story would make less sence. She is supposed to have a young adult son. Hon was old, and he is supposed to be the same age ish as her. If he was all wrinkled and she looked 35, it would actually screw up the story.

  29. There's a lot of stupid, superficial, mass consumerist teenagers (and unfortunately, more than a few juvenile 20yr olds) on the internet. I'm not surprised there's idiots who had the gull to disrespect a lady her age by bringing up her physical appearance in the first place, as if she didn't live the bulk of her life already (as a sex symbol, no less!), and she doesn't have other things in the world to explore, admire, think and worry about except "how fuckable she may look in her 60s". I hate people so much sometimes..

  30. Its pretty harsh that she's being judged up against her eighties prime! no-one stays young and beautiful forever! I'd say having seen the film she's aged pretty well!

  31. I had to laugh. Beneath the article Huff Post has a click-bait link '25 Years Later: How Do Baywatch Stars Look Today'. No hint of irony.

  32. I believe it was Yoda who said… "when enough coke and booze to kill a wookie you snort and drink, look like a princess you will not"

  33. i think by "all 3 of my feelings" she just means that she has like zero feelings about trolls. not that it needs saying but Carrie looks INCREDIBLE and she always has!

  34. Carrie Fisher needs no help from any of these whiny feminist cunts. So why do they do it anyway? Because they're whiny feminist cunts with an agenda – and it doesn't matter that the subject of their rant doesn't support them.

  35. carrie fisher is still a very beautiful woman in my eyes and sure wish I could meet her some day. I admired her then and I admire her now.

  36. That is one thing pisses me off of the youth today they have no respect for older people! "You old" they say. I met her about years back. To me she was so sweet kind and I was so happy to meat her. She looked gorgeous! I'll never forget! So bummed today! RIP Carrie Fisher`

  37. Proof that White lives > Black lives. Contrast the grief on display over Carrie Fisher, nice but lets be honest a character actor who was a mediocre talent and the death of Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson or even Prince.

    Not saying its a bad thing just the reality we live in.
