American actress Carrie Fisher, best known for the role of Princess Leia in films Star Wars has long been trying to lose weight.
In 2011 when the actress became the face of dietetic products company, she managed to lose about 25 kg. But after nine months of dieting (calorie intake was about 1,500 per day) Carrie gave up and again gained weight.
They say that’s because of her love to rice pudding and cola. Having gained extra kilos, Carrie Fisher didn’t want to look in the mirror. She thought she was old. But then she looked closer to her own reflection and realized that only she was just her extra weight that makes her much older.
At that time of weakness, Carrie Fisher’s weight reached 95 kilos (209 lbs). She didn’t want to know and see her weight; she didn’t look at the scoreboard and asked the doctor not to comment on her figure.
Some people suspected that Carrie began to overeat after the father of her daughter had left her for another man. She suffered from chronic depression and even was treated with electroshock therapy.
At the time, Carrie confessed her addiction to drugs (in particular, she was fond of cocaine) and she also suffered of bipolar disorder. So, perhaps, Carrie Fisher’s overweight is only top of the iceberg of her problems.
In 2015, Princess Leia said that she was really fat, but she took it easy and even joked that manufacturers would have to invent a new alphabet letter to find the right bra size which she was wearing.
During the filming of the intergalactic saga in late 70’s – early 80’s, she weighed a little less than 48 kilograms. Carrie began to gain weight about seven years ago – in her life there was no place for physical exercises, but only for an unbalanced diet. The situation worsened in 2010 when her father died.
The actress admitted that while she was in the 80 kilograms weight she increasingly began to eat junk food and ice cream … Her weight reached a “historic line” that you can’t but agree was a bit too much with the growth of 155 cm.
From bloggers’ caustic comments about how she looked, Carrie was getting worse and worse; especially hurt her comparison with Elton John. But she was able to pull herself together.
We hope that the actress will succeed and it will return to the previous form.
