‘I look melted and I look my age’: Carrie Fisher reveals insecurities as she returns to the big screen in ‘The Force Awakens’.

In PEOPLE’s special Star Wars collector’s edition, on newsstands today, Lourd reveals she had an obsession with the original movie when she was growing up. “I made [my mom] watch it at least once a week – and on special occasions I would make her get in a lightsaber fight with me,” Lourd, 23, says. “Let’s just say the more trained Jedi usually won.” Lourd’s destiny at first seemed to take a different path from her mom and dad’s (her father is CAA superagent Bryan Lourd).That’s the apparent reasoning behind the fact that none of the promotional material for Star Wars: The Force Awakens shows Leia using a lightsaber or following in the family Jedi business in any way. “It was a great question and one that we talked about a lot — even with Carrie [Fisher] — if there was another, why did she not take advantage of this natural Force strength that she’s got?” director J.J.Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher may have wowed film fans 40 years ago when she appeared in a gold bikini as Princess Leia, but the actress is no fan of her own body. “My physical self and I are not friends.

Abrams told IGN when discussing Leia’s growth into becoming a general in the Resistance instead of a Jedi Knight like her brother, Luke. “One of the answers was that it was simply a choice that she made,” he continued. “That her decision to run the rebellion and, ultimately, this resistance and consider herself a general as opposed to a Jedi, it was simply a choice that she took. We’re not speaking and I’m ignoring especially my arms lately,” she explained. “I’ve never liked my appearance.” She told The Mirror: “Appearances are treated like, you know, something; an accomplishment. Mine were good-looking and they had sex, and then it ended.” Carrie also admitted to greater insecurity as she gets older, saying: “I look melted and I look my age. Hollywood has recently seen actresses such as Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon and Emily Blunt speaking out about equal pay and how woman are portrayed on film.
