Carrie Fisher is out with another book on her life, The Princess Diarist. Among the book's many stories is the revelation that she really did have an affair with Harrison Ford during the making of Star Wars when she was 19 years old.
On December 23, Fisher suffered a massive heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles. The Star Wars family
wished her a speedy recovery on Twitter. She's currently on a ventilator.
Fisher is a member of Hollywood royalty. Her mother is the MGM musical star Debbie Reynolds and her father was the late Eddie Fisher. Her brother is Todd Fisher, who handles their mother's business ventures and worked in films himself. Fisher is now 60 years old and has battled addictions to drugs and alcohol.
She has previously written about her life in the novel Postcards from the Edge
, which later became a movie starring Meryl Streep, and in the non-fiction book Wishful Drinking
. Her panels at Star Wars
conventions are always highlights, since she has no filter. She's always ready to tell a good story, no matter how uncomfortable it might make some people in the audience.
