I didn't realize Carrie was in bad shape, but I thought when she turned appeared on Smallville briefly that they were giving her the most unflattering lighting and make up. If she's doing better either way then I am glad to hear it.
RE Hamill, he's hard to recognize now. I had no idea this was him at first. (no, not the blond girl)
I won't begrudge him getting older, but I think he should adopt a beard and Jedi Master robes like Obi Wan had. I doubt very much Sir Alec was in superior shape when he played his role, those long elder's robes cover a lot.
Well in the case of Carrie Fisher and the way she looks might be because of the side effects of the medication she takes for bi-polar.
Rob Kerr- 1979-2006. I will always love you.
