This image features Carrie Fisher in 2011 compared to now after losing over 35 pounds the newest Star Wars Movie. Fisher told Good Housekeeping UK that she felt pressured to lose the weight in order to reprise her role as Princess (now General) Leia Organa. 

In the interview she expressed dissapointment that after 38 years, Hollywood is still appearance obsessed, particularily when it comes to slimming down female actresses and maybe she has a point. Princess Leia, a badass in her own right (see video below if you need proof), is more often remembered for her sex symbol status in the iconic "Slave Leia" gold bikini.
