The 59-year-old actress took to Twitter on Tuesday, December 29, telling commenters they should be focusing on more important aspects of Leia Organa's return to the hit movie franchise rather than caring so much about looks.

"Please stop debating about whether or not I aged well," Fisher tweeted her followers. “Unfortunately, it hurts all three of my feelings. My body hasn’t aged as well as I have. Blow us," she added.

Later, the actress, who joined Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford in her return to the legendary movie series for the first time since Return of the Jedi in 1983, gave her followers some sage words of wisdom.

"Youth and beauty are not accomplishments, they’re the temporary happy by-products of time and/or DNA. Don’t hold your breath for either," she advised.

The actress also retweeted a number of comments others had written about her  some criticizing her appearance, and others noticing that the public seemed overly preoccupied with Fisher's aging process, while Hamill and Ford got an easier ride.

Earlier this month, Fisher revealed she felt under pressure to lose 35 pounds in order to reprise her iconic role as Leia in the latest movie installment.

“I’m in a business where the only thing that matters is weight and appearance," the actress told Good Housekeeping magazine in December. "That is so messed up. They might as well say get younger, because that’s how easy it is."
