Carrie Fisher should publicize every movie.
Her promotional tour for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has featured appearances by her dog Gary Fisher, frequent profanity while on the Disney dime, and frank talk about everything from tongue-kissing to drugs to haters of that iconic slave bikini.
Here are some highlights:
On those critical of her wearing the bikini/chain in “Return of the Jedi”:
“How stupid was that?,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “She’s been forced to wear it. She’s a prisoner of a giant testicle who has a lot of saliva going on and she does not want to wear that thing and it’s ultimately that chain, which you’re now indicating is some sort of accessory to S&M, that is used to kill the giant saliva testicle…. That’s asinine.”
On kissing Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) in “The Empire Strikes Back,” only to have it revealed he was her brother.
“We didn’t [know]” Fisher told Yahoo Movies. “But there were no tongues. And I say that in a very respectful Disney-eque way. … It was not any kind of romantic kiss. I don’t kiss my brother that way. Or, at all!”
On how her dog Gary reacted to watching her performance in an early screening of “The Force Awakens”:
“His tongue wasn’t out of his mouth before he saw the movie. It’ll happen to everyone,” she told Good Morning America.”Worth it, though! That’s how good it is. You won’t care that your tongue is out of your mouth.”
Denying on Twitter that she had a “coke nail,” a longer fingernail with which she used to sniff cocaine during filming of “Jedi” while she was heavily into drugs:
On partying with Harrison Ford in Eric Idle’s rental house in Tunisia during “Empire” shooting:
“We had an early call, and Eric called down and said, ‘The Rolling Stones are here!’ and I came down and it was all of them,” she told The Daily Beast. “I called Harrison and said, ‘Get over here! This is ridiculous!’ I wonder how he remembers it. I remember that we never went to sleep, so we weren’t hungover—we were still drunk when we arrived in Cloud City the next day. We don’t really smile a lot in the movie, but there we’re smiling.”
