Raise your hand if you feel personally victimized by the academy for nominating the lone ranger instead of Pacific Rim for Best Visual Effects.
*raises both hands*
The thing that killed me about this setup was, okay, you put me in this bathing suit - but then I have to stop talking from here on? Strip me, and I’m silent! I am defiant with everyone else - Tarkin, Darth Vader - but this slug really shuts me up. Any defiance I had in the other movies, all gone.
I was so very happy to kill [Jabba]. It meant I could talk again. They asked me if I wanted a stunt double to kill Jabba and I said, ‘Really, really not. I really, really want to kill him myself.’
Carrie Fisher on being Slave Leia (via tederick)
THIS RIGHT HERE is why I hate fandom’s fetishization of Slave Leia. Carrie explains it perfectly (obviously). Leia and Jabba’s interaction in ROTJ isn’t meant to be sexy. It’s meant to make us angry that Leia’s agency has been robbed from her. Her temperament on Tatooine is disgustingly authentic and so much darker when you really think about it.
Despite strides in 2013 and the miracle that is Jennifer Lawrence, Hollywood still owes us more heroines than we get.
