Following in the footsteps of Queen Latifah, Whoopi Goldberg, Anna Nicole Smith, Kirstie Alley, Valerie Bertinelli and Sara Rue, another celebrity has signed on to drop some l-bs with Jenny Craig: Carrie Fisher.

"You know, I swear when I was shooting those [ 'Star Wars'] films I never realized I was signing an invisible contract to stay looking the exact same way for the rest of my existence," the now-and-forever Princess Leia says, "must have been in the small print."

Saying that she's been unhappy with her weight for a long time, Fisher jokes, "I chose Jenny Craig because, honestly, if they can make Jason Alexander look hot, there's got to be hope for me."

The acerbic writer says Jenny's Chick Fettuccine, Barbecued Meatloaf, Toffee Bites and Cheese Curls are her favorite program foods and she's getting into working out on the elliptical because she can read at the same time.

Even better? She's blogging about her weight loss journey. Do we sense another book in the making?
