According to E Online on Friday, actress Debbie Reynolds brought to light that her daughter Carrie Fisher has lost 40 pounds for her role in J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars 7" movie. Fisher will be making a return to the big screen along with Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill. Recently, a black-and-white photo had been posted along with director Abrams in what debuted a full ensemble cast for the new "Star Wars" sequel and has been rumored to be entitled "An Ancient Fear".
The 57-year-old actress had mentioned in an earlier interview that she is glad about doing a new movie. That being said, a personal trainer will be making routine visits to Fisher's home to help her get in shape for the film. It was even mentioned that she is going to eat as much sugar as humanly possible and by that time will have eaten most of everything.
Reynold's did mention that when it comes to show business, one has to be up to snuff when it comes to their appearances in film. Following the Fisher weight loss announcement, Reynolds was also promoting her final movie memorabilia auction. Some items include products from "The Rat Pack".
Ford is also mentioned to be playing a rather significant role more so than Fisher and Hamill. Though, in an interview with the former Han Solo and Indiana Jones actor revealed that he's much more fond of the Jones character than the Solo one. Apparently, he doesn't think that the galactic mule to Jabba the Hutt isn't all that bright compared to the intellect of Indiana Jones.
Ford also said he doesn't give much credit to the culture that admires the the space vagabond. Back in 1983, when he was interviewed on the "Today Show" even then he was done with the character, but apparently things have changed.
"Star Wars 7" is scheduled to be released on Dec. 18, 2015.
