Carrie Fisher Brings The Crazy To “The Today Show”
Carrie Fisher, best known as Princess Leia from the “Star Wars” franchise, was on “The Today Show” this morning promoting her new memoir “Wishful Drinking.” She had some hilarious little anecdotes about her life growing up in Hollywood, including being told, repeatedly, by Cary Grant not to do acid. I personally loved the moment when she corrected Matt Lauer, who called her mom and dad, Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, the “Brad and Angelina of their day.” She said, “Actually, they were the Brad and Jennifer Aniston. Liz Taylor was the Angelina,” referring, of course, to Taylor breaking up their marriage. I also loved that she sat in her chair all folded up, like a Shaman. Clip above!
