Carrie Fisher was easily the best talk show guest a host could ever hope for. She was up for anything, thanks to her blunt outlook on life and being quick to come up with a joke. She could tell stories about Hollywood royalty, as the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and the late Eddie Fisher. She could tell stories about making Star Wars and she would always tell great stories about her own battles with drug addiction and alcoholism.

Fisher died on December 27 at age 60, leaving behind a legacy of great interviews and great performances. Here are just a few of the best interviews she ever gave.
