Carrie Fisher sheds 50 pounds

Carrie Fisher on Breakfast Television, July 11, 2011. CITYNEWS.

Carrie Fisher can now squeeze back into the infamous gold bikini she wore as Princess Leia.

The actress and author is showing off her Star Wars shape, after dropping 50 pounds over nine months as a spokesperson for the Jenny Craig diet program.

“I feel really good about losing 50 pounds. I do,” Fisher said in a statement. “I feel proud of myself.”

“I can even go shopping now.  It’s nice going into stores and not have to ask for sizes that don’t exist. I even bought a suit the other day, and guess what? It fit!”

Fisher is on the road, touring with her one-woman show Wishful Drinking, which originated as a book and an HBO special.

Her sixth book Shockaholic is due this fall.
