She knows she doesn't look like she did in the first Star Wars movies, but Carrie Fisher isn't letting body shamers get the best of her when they criticize her look in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The woman famous for portraying Princess Leia in the franchise has taken to Twitter after seeing comments by trolls saying she hadn't aged well, asking the body shamers to quit doing it because she knows she no longer looks like the 19-year-old she was in the first films, and she's proud of the body she has now at age 59.

"Please stop debating about whetherOR not I aged well. Unfortunately it hurts all3 of my feelings. My BODY hasn't aged as well as I have. Blow us," she wrote in a first tweet. She later followed it up with another tweet where she refers to her body as her "brain bag."

"My body is my brain bag, it hauls me around to those places & in front of faces where theres something to say or see," she added.
She has also shared tweets from fans who have jumped to her defense as well, including ones who have called out the critics for still praising her costars Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford in their older ages while they criticize Fisher.
