The gold “slave” bikini that Princess Leia wore in Return of the Jedi is the stuff of legend. On Tuesday, Carrie Fisher passed away following a heart attack she suffered aboard a flight from London to Los Angeles on Friday. Fisher was an actress, author, mental health advocate, writer and mother, but to many, she will be most fondly remembered as Princess Leia, the iconic heroine she played in the Star Wars trilogy.
Actress Carrie Fisher, who passed away Tuesday morning, was legendary for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies. When George Lucas, the filmmaker and creator of Star Wars, was questioned by Time back in 2002 about the unique hairstyles in his movies, he responded: “In the 1977 film, I was working very hard to create something different that wasn’t fashion, so I went with a kind of Southwestern Pancho Villa woman revolutionary look, which is what that is.
Carrie Fisher is fed up with people body shaming her because (shocker!) she doesn’t look exactly like she did 35 years ago. “My body is my brain bag, it hauls me around to those places and in front of faces where theres something to say or see,” she continues. “I get really protective over Carrie Fisher because nerds will go on and on about how cool and great Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford still are, but they’ll always be like, ‘Carrie Fisher sure didn’t age well, huh,’,” the post reads.
