Carrie Fisher unveils her new figure after losing 50lb at 54

Carrie Fisher has shown off her slimline new look on US television this morning.
The Star Wars actress has shed 50lbs in nine months since becoming the face of diet company, Jenny Craig, she said.
But some couldn't help but notice that her face, as well as her body, seems to have undergone a transformation of sorts.
Her appearance on America's Today show sparked buzz on Twitter this morning, with one viewer noting: 'What on earth did she do to her face?'

Another added: 'Is anyone else watching the @todayshow? It looks like Carrie Fisher had mad plastic surgery on her face.'
While she kept quite about her rejuvenated features, she was certainly forthcoming about her decision to lose weight.

The star, who is now a size 8, told the Today Show: 'I couldn't look in the mirror. I saw pictures of myself where I didn't look like myself.
'I thought I was getting old. It turns out [I] was mostly getting fat.'
With her new Size 8 figure, the 54-year-old is feeling more confident than ever, and is even ready to find love again.

'I'm ready to date again; this is my announcement.'
Her previously flames include her Blues Brothers co-star Dan Aykroyd, singer-songwriter Paul Simon and casting agent Bryan Lourd, with whom she has a 19-year-old daughter, Billie.
Carrie  also joked that she wanted to get back in shape so she could don the metal bikini she wore as Princess Leia in the 1977 classic sci-fi hit.
'I want to get back in it and walk around the house like an idiot.
'You know, answer the doorbell, [and say], "What, this old thing? I'm just wearing my home style metal bikini."
'I'll come out with a line of metal bikinis for women over 40.'
At one point the actress topped the scales at 180 lbs, she has said in the past.
In order to transform her body, she reduced her intake to 1,500 per day.
Her favourite snacks include Skinny Cow Cookies 'n Cream ice cream and Kozy Shack rice pudding.
She also embarked on a fitness regime, doing 40-45 minutes of cardio five times a week.
'I'm not in love with the treadmill,' she admits. 'We're in a truce situation. But I really like elliptical because I can read.'
Look at me now! Carrie is now a slender Size 8

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
