On being pressured to lose 35 pounds for her role as Princess Leia in the new Star Wars movie:
They don’t want to hire all of me – only about three-quarters! Nothing changes, it’s an appearance-driven thing. I’m in a business where the only thing that matters is weight and appearance. That is so messed up. They might as well say get younger, because that’s how easy it is.
On how being beautiful is not a true accomplishment:
We treat beauty like an accomplishment and that is insane. Everyone in LA says, “Oh you look good,” and you listen for them to say you’ve lost weight. It’s never “How are you?” or “You seem happy!”
… says 59 year-old Carrie in Good Housekeeping.
