Carrie Fisher Wants To Wear Leia’s Gold Bikini Again [VIDEO]
Carrie Fisher will always be known as Princess Leia from the Star Wars saga. And to many, many guys, she will always be remembered for the gold slave bikini she wore while a captive in Jabba’s palace in “Return of the Jedi”. Fast forward almost 30 years and Carrie Fisher is now saying she wants to get back into the bikini.
The 54-year-old actress and novelist has had a well publicized battle with drug addiction, bi-polar disorder, and weight problems. She’s gone to great strides to fix those problems, most recently going to Jenny Craig to help with her weight issues. Over the course of 9 months, Fisher lost 50 pounds and looks better than she has since the 80s. During an interview on The Today Show, Fisher said she wanted to get back into the gold bikini and just walk around the house. Though she was obviously joking around, some have wondered if she’d actually do a photo shoot to show off her new body, much as Kirstie Alley has. Now a spokesperson for Jenny Craig, getting back into the iconic bikini would get huge publicity for Fisher as well as Jenny Craig, but no matter how much weight Fisher has lost, can she ever live up to the legacy she created in “Return of the Jedi”?
