Carrie Fisher reveals 50 pound weight loss
Over the past nine months, actress Carrie Fisher has lost 50 pounds, and she’s showing off her slimmer silhouette, reports People.
The Jenny Craig spokeswoman appeared on Wednesday’s “Today” show and spoke about her weight loss journey.
The former “Star Wars” actress, 54, showed off her new bod for "Today" host Ann Curry, who exclaimed, "Holy cow!”
Curry joked, “Where’s the rest of you?” To which Fisher quipped, "I don't want to know, because then I'd have to go get it.”
On what life was like 50 pounds heavier, Fisher says she "couldn't leave the house [to go shopping], because they didn't have sizes [large enough]...I exhausted the alphabet on bra sizes."
The actress and author added that she relied on her Jenny Craig consultant, who functioned as someone "to complain to, stamp my fat foot and say I didn't want to do it." Of the plan’s food, the actress/author says she enjoyed eating cereal, because "it tastes like contraband."
Fisher’s slim and trim again, but no word on if she’ll slip back into her Princess Leia metal bikini.
