Carrie Fisher drops 50 lbs., eyes her 'Star Wars' metal bikini again

Wheeljack35 - August 24, 2011
It all seems to come back to the metal bikini for Carrie Fisher.

You know, that two-piece number she wore as Princess Leia in "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi" back in 1983?

Well, Fisher is closer to being able to wear that legendary outfit all over again, having lost 50 pounds in nine months on the Jenny Craig Weight Loss program.

"I want to get into the metal bikini and just walk around the house like an idiot," she chuckled. "Answer the doorbell: 'What is it? This old thing?' ... I'll come out with a line of metal bikinis for women over 40. If you want dignity, you wear metal bikinis over (age) 40."

That said, while Fisher was thrilled to be able to find clothing in her size again ("I exhausted the alphabet on bra sizes"), she says there's still something she'll never wear again: sleeveless clothing.

"I think after 50, there's a law," she said.

But laws are meant to be broken -- a point that metal bikini just might prove.
