7 Quotes From Carrie Fisher That Will Make Your Day

It is always sad to see talented actors and actresses pass away, and that is especially true with the recent passing of sensational talent, Carrie Fisher. Daughter of the Hollywood movie star, Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher’s talents seemed unlimited. She was an actress—her most famous role being Princess Leia in the hit sci-fi franchise, Star Wars—a singer, a writer—her published books included Wishful Drinking (2008), Postcards from the Edge (1987), Surrender the Pink (1990), Delusions of Grandma (1993) and The Princess Diarist (2016)—and a mental health advocate.

However, her talents also included comedy. Carrie Fisher was witty beyond belief. Here are 7 hilarious quotes from Carrie Fisher to brighten your day:

1. On her problems with pills, Carrie said… “One of the side effects of Percodan is feelings of euphoria, and I always felt that was a side effect I could deal with.”

2. On a higher power, she said… “You know how they say that religion is the opiate of the masses? Well, I took masses of opiates religiously.”

3. On her struggles with mental illness and bipolar disorder, she said… “I thought I would inaugurate a Bipolar Pride Day. You know, with floats and parades and stuff! On the floats, we would get the depressives, and they wouldn’t even have to leave their beds -- we’d just roll their beds out of their houses, and they could continue staring off miserably into space. And then for the manics, we’d have the manic marching band, with manics laughing and talking and shopping and fucking and making bad judgment calls.”

4. On her struggles with her mom, she said… “Not that it matters, but my mother is not a lesbian! She's just a really, really bad heterosexual.”

5. On Princess Leia's iconic white dress in Star Wars, she said… “George comes up to me the first day of filming and he takes a look at the dress and says, 'You can't wear a bra under that dress.' So, I say, 'OK, I'll bite. Why?' And he says, 'Because ... there's no underwear in space. I promise you this is true, and he says it with such conviction too! Like he had been to space and looked around and he didn't see any bras or panties or briefs anywhere.'”

6. On her recently revealed past affair with Harrison Ford, she said… "It was so intense. It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend."

7. On how she wanted to be remembered and the one request she had for her obituary, she said… “I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.”

Carrie Fisher was a treasure, and I hope her talent and wit will be remembered for generations.
