Carrie Fisher’s advice to LiLo, Hilton and other young Hollywood starlets

Paris Hilton London, Dec 30 (ANI): Carrie Fisher seems to be worried about the future of young Hollywood starlets who often go off track and end up in rehab or behind the bars.

Fisher has apparently written an open letter to the young bloods of Hollywood like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, urging them to ’stop for a minute to appreciate where you could be’, reports the Daily Star.

The ‘Star Wars’ icon, who has tackled her fair share of problems, is calling on the troubled stars to learn from her mistakes, clean up and stop throwing away amazing opportunities they are given.

Her missive, published in the new issue of style magazine Black Book, comes at the end of a year when Lohan hit the headlines for violating probation and bouncing from jail to rehab and socialite Hilton was caught with drugs in her purse in Las Vegas.

“(Lindsay’s) a mess. She should back out of the whole scene and move to the f**king south of France, the actress wrote in her caustic letter.

The 54-year-old actress admitted that being in the limelight might be ‘cruel’.

“It sets you apart from other people, so that life becomes more about what you are than who you are. That’s what happened to me. It’s a privileged job, which is why everyone wants it, but it used to mean you earned those privileges based on talent. Now you can become famous for being a spectacle…” she said.

“Acquiring celebrity can be an exciting thing, but there never comes a time, once you have it, when you can relax and say, ‘Okay, I’m famous now. Isn’t this great?’ Fame is something you have to maintain, like a weird garden… Don’t imagine that Julia Roberts is just kicking back in her house with her kids,” she added.

She advises young Hollywood to learn another skill if they are actors.

“If you’re an actor, learn another skill. Write a book or play an instrument - at the very least, learn to manage your own finances… I wish I’d known all of this earlier, and I wish I’d paid more attention to my life as it was going by,” said Fisher. (ANI)
