While attending The Final Auction Preview Night by Profiles in History in North Hollywood, California, Fisher told reporters, "They didn't hire me, they hired me minus 35 pounds."

Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, joined her at the lavish LA event, who also confirmed that her daughter has been shedding the weight.

Fisher's weight has been a hot topic as of late, mainly due to Debbie telling Mario Lopez on Extra last week that her daughter lost 40 pounds for the Star Wars flick.

"She's been on a diet ever since [she was cast in the film], because you know they have to be up to par, so she looks terrific," the 82 year-old said. "She's very excited, as we all are, because we all love Star Wars."

Carrie's portrayal of Princess Leia became memorable due to her wearing a gold metal 'slave' bikini in 1983's 'Star Wars Return of the Jedi.'...
