If your New Year’s resolutions look something like this:
1. Join Jenny Craig
You have so much in common with Carrie Fisher!
The 54-year-old actress is Jenny Craig’s latest celebrity client and spokesperson, the weight management company announced Wednesday.
“A day comes when you can no longer face not wanting to leave the house because you don’t like the way you look,” Fisher said in a statement. “I haven’t been able to enjoy what otherwise is a good part of my life because so much of what’s on my mind is about my weight.”
Fisher intends to stop “apologizing,” she said, and start taking action. In fact, Fisher – who started the program a few days after Thanksgiving – has already dropped 12 pounds.
The actress and author, who was 180 pounds at her heaviest, revealed to Us Weekly that she's happy she found a way to lose weight, and may even one day take a second look at that infamous piece of "Star Wars" swimwear.
"I would like to have the option of getting back into the metal bikini," she told Us. "I won't be doing that, but I'd like the option."
