Carrie Fisher Opens Up Her ‘Star Wars’ Journal: 'I Think I Do Overshare' 

Carrie Fisher told Terry Gross about filming the famous Jabba the Hutt scene with the iconic gold bikini in Return of the Jedi:

“What my joke was when we first rehearsed it, they’re brought in front of Jabba, they talk to Jabba, Jabba talks to Harrison and Mark, and then they’re led off. They never say, ‘Hey! How are you?’ So as they were being led off I said, in the rehearsal, ‘Don’t worry about me! I’ll be fine! Seriously!’ Which I thought they should’ve kept in there. It was like, ‘Where am I in all of this?’ Sure, they were going to be digested for 2,000 years, but I have to stay with the slug with the big tongue! Nearly naked! Which is not a style choice for me. … It wasn’t my choice. When [George Lucas] showed me the outfit I thought he was kidding, and it made me very nervous. I had to sit very straight because I couldn’t have lines on my sides, like little creases. No creases were allowed, so I had to sit very, very rigid straight. … What redeems it is I get to kill him, which was so enjoyable. … I sawed his neck off with that chain that I killed him with, I really relished that because I hated wearing that outfit and sitting there rigid straight, and I couldn’t wait to kill him.”

Actress Carrie Fisher, beloved for her iconic role as Princess Leia, died on Tuesday at the age of 60.

She leaves behind her daughter, Billie Lourd, her brother, Todd Fisher, her mother, Debbie Reynolds — and her French bulldog, Gary.

Gary Fisher is a celebrity in his own right — he traveled widely with Fisher and was a star on Instagram and Twitter.

And when Carrie Fisher visited NPR’s studios in New York City, to talk to Fresh Air host Terry Gross, Gary came along, too.

Gross, however, was in Philadelphia. She didn’t know there was a dog in our studios. She didn’t even know that was allowed.

In the conversation that followed, it’s impossible to miss the buoyant personalities of both Fishers — Carrie and Gary.

The only Vickers Valiant B.2 ever built, first flying 4 September 1953. Intended as a pathfinder in nuclear war, an obsolete role, this all black beast clocked 640 mph at sea-level. It was undoubtedly the most capable strategic bomber ever built in Britain.

She was supposedly adorned her unique gloss black scheme after Vickers chief test pilot saw the design, approved and exclaimed: “And paint the fucker black.”
