Of course, she was Hollywood royalty well before ''Star Wars'' was made, being the daughter of the late singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds, whose late 50s divorce was one of Hollywood's most infamous scandals of the time, as her father had an affair with Creator/ElizabethTaylor. Fisher herself was briefly married to Music/PaulSimon.

** It's hard to tell if she is proud or embarrassed or both to have been in it. Her cover of ''Wishful Drinking'' has a woman resembling her with princess Leia buns with her head down and much of the stage show covered her love-hate relationship with it. She has stated that she wished she had turned down the role, though It's unclear if she regrets being in it or simply regrets agreeing to it.

Be sure to check out her [[https://twitter.com/carrieffisher Twitter]], which is hilarious, confusing, and inspiring. Often all at once.

* WriteWhatYouKnow: Fisher has made a writing career from this, writing what critics called a series of "Fictionalized Autobiographies". ''Film/PostcardsFromTheEdge'' concerns her battle with drug addiction, ''Surrender the Pink'' dramatizes her first marriage to Paul Simon, ''Delusions of Grandma'' recounts her experience with motherhood and relationship with her movie star mother, and ''The Best Awful There Is'' is roughly based on her relationship with her partner Bryan Lourds. It all came full circle in her film ''These Old Broads'', where the two of the main characters are partially based on Debbie Reynolds and Elizabeth Taylor, and they were played by Reynolds and Taylor themselves (they even share a joke at the expense of their mutual ex-husband, Eddie Fisher).
