  • She And Harrison Ford Were High In Another Way During The Scene Where Leia And Han Arrive In Cloud City  on Random Things We Learned About Carrie Fisher

    (#7) She And Harrison Ford Were High In Another Way During The Scene Where Leia And Han Arrive In Cloud City

    Carrie Fisher had a history of substance problems, which she talked about extensively later in life. Given what is now known about the actor, it's not surprising to learn that she was under the influence on the set of The Empire Strikes Back.

    Fisher and Harrison Ford were apparently both high while filming the scene where Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and the droids arrive at Cloud City. The two actors were reportedly out partying the night before - and well into the morning - with Eric Idle and the Rolling Stones. Idle confirmed the partying in a 2018 interview with The New York Times:

    We were having too much fun. Carrie Fisher had rented my house, and she was staying there. We went to bed, and they went to work. It turns out when they filmed the scene, they were still a little high.

  • She Once Dated A US Senator on Random Things We Learned About Carrie Fisher

    (#13) She Once Dated A US Senator

    Fisher's sixth book, Shockaholic, was filled with interesting revelations, but the one that few could have suspected was her relationship with Sen. Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut. She wrote that he was "not a handsome man, but he was far from unattractive."

    The couple was set up on a blind date, where they were joined by Ted Kennedy, his date, and an unnamed couple. They went on a few more dates, and the relationship fizzled out. When Dodd ran for president, he described their relationship as a "courtship."

    From that comment, Fisher wrote, "Is that what they call sleeping together a few times?" When Dodd was later asked about their relationship, he simply remarked, "It was a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away."

  • She Taped Down Her Breasts In 'Star Wars' on Random Things We Learned About Carrie Fisher

    (#12) She Taped Down Her Breasts In 'Star Wars'

    George Lucas may not have wanted Carrie Fisher to wear a bra while filming Star Wars because "there was no underwear in space," but that wasn't his only note regarding her chest. 

    In Brian Jay Jones's biography George Lucas: A Life, he wrote, "Lucas didn't want her looking too aggressively feminine, using gaffer's tape to hold down her breasts." He quoted Fisher in the book as saying, "No breasts bounce in space, no jiggling in the Empire. (Producer) Gary Kurtz had to tell me that. George didn't have the nerve."

    Lucas's opinions on Fisher's sexuality must have taken a U-turn by the third film, based on that gold bikini she wore in Return of the Jedi.

  • She Left Dan Aykroyd For Paul Simon on Random Things We Learned About Carrie Fisher

    (#14) She Left Dan Aykroyd For Paul Simon

    Carrie Fisher and Dan Aykroyd really hit it off, and the two were engaged on the set of The Blues Brothers. Unfortunately, the couple had a lingering problem, according to Fisher: 

    We had rings, we got blood tests, the whole shot. But then I got back together with Paul Simon.

    Fisher previously dated the musician beginning in 1977, and the two were on-and-off until 1983. Aykroyd and Fisher got engaged in 1980, but when Simon came back into the picture, that was it.

    Simon and Fisher wed in August 1983, but the marriage ended in July 1984, although they dated for a little while after. Paul Simon's song "Hearts and Bones" is about their relationship.

  • She Was Supposed To Play Miss Scarlet In 'Clue' on Random Things We Learned About Carrie Fisher

    (#15) She Was Supposed To Play Miss Scarlet In 'Clue'

    Carrie Fisher was set to portray Miss Scarlet in the movie Clue. But when the film came out, Lesley Ann Warren played the role. Filmmakers made the casting change at the last minute.

    Fisher had checked into an outpatient rehabilitation clinic 10 days before filming began, and the film's insurance company refused to cover her. She was replaced, and the film continued production.

  • She Didn't Meet James Earl Jones Until 2014 on Random Things We Learned About Carrie Fisher

    (#1) She Didn't Meet James Earl Jones Until 2014

    Carrie Fisher and James Earl Jones have worked on five films together, but the two never met on set while working on Star Wars. On the one hand, that makes sense, because Jones's work was done in a sound booth while Fisher's was done on set, but it's still surprising. After all, they had been technically working together since 1977, but their actual meeting didn't come until 2014.

    When they finally did meet, it was when the two appeared in the same episode of The Big Bang Theory. The series' showrunner, Steven Molaro, said at San Diego Comic-Con that, despite the fact the two actors had never met, when Fisher saw Jones, she ran up to him with her arms raised out and called out, "Dad!"
