Carrie Fisher Perfectly Shuts Down Ageist Critics: 'Blow Us'

Go, Carrie! Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher has little time for people criticising her looks. 

The one and only Princess Leia has proved she is as regal in real life as she is on screen. 

Carrie Fisher, 59, who reprised her role as Princess Leia in the box office hit Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has hit back at critics who claim she hasn't "aged well". 

It has been nearly 40 years since Carrie appeared in the first Star Wars film in 1977. Naturally, some internet punters just can't wrap their heads around the fact Fisher wasn't immortalised at the age of 20, and thought it appropriate to criticise her appearance.

"Please stop debating whether or not I aged well. Unfortunately it hurts all three of my feelings," the actress wrote on Twitter in response to the ridiculous discussion. 

"My body hasn't aged as well as I have. Blow us."

She also wrote:

"Youth and beauty are not accomplishments, they're the temporary happy bi-products of time and/or DNA."

While Carrie may have won the battle this time, it appears sexism is still winning the war.

Case in point: the total lack of interest in/discussion about/attack of co-star Harrison Ford's aging process. 

Oh, and this utter garbage of a New York Post column telling Carrie she should quit acting if she doesn't like people criticising her looks. No, seriously. That happened.
