LOS ANGELOS, Ca. - Turns out some of "The Force Awakens’" biggest drama isn’t onscreen – it’s online.
Some critics haven't been kind to Carrie Fisher and her return to portraying Leia. It's not so much her acting, but how well, or not so well, she's aged.
But a princess turned general doesn't run and hide, Fisher fires back on twitter, and even retweets the critics.
Shame on folks tweeting things like – “You didn't age well and you sucked in star wars. It was a rest home flick.” - or – “So you want money and adulation that comes with being a famous actor but not the criticism. Whoever told you life was fair?”
Fisher's response – “Please stop debating about whether or not I aged well. Unfortunately it hurts all 3 of my feelings. My body hasn't aged as well as I have. B*** us ok.”
She also reminds us that “Youth and beauty are not accomplishments, they're temporary byproducts of time or DNA”
In response to comments on how 30 years was kinder to Han and Luke, a tweet supporting Carrie challenged that “Men don't age better than women, they're just allowed to age.”
All this drama aside, let's just take a second to appreciate that this time around - the lead is female! That's progress, but it's obvious we've got a long, long way to go.
