James Blunt announces that Carrie Fisher was killed due to pressure from Star Wars bosses.

James Blunt says Carrie Fisher felt so much pressure from Star Wars executives to be skinny to return to the franchise that it forced her to relapse into the drug abuse that led to her death.
The “You’re Beautiful” singer, 50, formed an unlikely friendship with the actress, who played Princess Leia on the sci-fi series, and moved into her Los Angeles home in 2000 while he was recording his first album – years before his death in 2016 year at the age of 60.
An autopsy revealed she had a lethal drug mix of cocaine, ecstasy, alcohol and opiates in her system, which caused her to go into cardiac arrest on the flight from London to Los Angeles.
James told fans at the Hay Literary Festival: “I just knew that the day before she died, when she came back to my house and was really treating her body badly, she had just gotten the job again as Princess Leia in the new series of films.” Star Wars”.
“So she’s really high and positive, but there was a lot of pressure on her to be thin, which is what they do, so she talked about the difficulties that women face in an industry where men are allowed to age and women aren’t.
“She really had to put a lot of pressure on herself and started abusing drugs again.
“So before she got on the plane, she basically killed herself. They said it was heart failure, but she took enough medication to throw a great party.
Carrie previously said she was under pressure to lose 35 pounds to reprise her role as Princess Leia in 2015’s The Force Awakens in the Star Wars installment, telling Good Housekeeping: ‘They don’t want to hire all of me – just about three people. -apartment!
“Nothing changes, it’s a matter of appearance. I run a company where only weight and appearance matter.
“It’s so crazy. They might as well have said, “Be younger because it’s that easy.”
