Carrie Fisher, You’re My Only Hope!

by Shelby L Thompson

In addition to reprising her iconic role, actress Carrie Fisher claims that she may also bring back the infamous buns!

“The bagel buns and the bikini,” Fisher told Palm Beach Illustrated, “because probably [Princess Leia] has sundowners syndrome. At sundown, she thinks that she’s 20-something. And she puts it on and gets institutionalized.”

It seems she is over previous reports that wearing the buns make her feel, “Like an asshole. A complete undignified jerk off.”

We’re all glad to hear it, Carrie.

Despite battling drug addiction, alcoholism and bipolar disorder, it’s been evident over the span of her career that Ms. Fisher has kept her sense of humor about making it big, wearing next to nothing.

Princess Leia stayed in the spotlight over the years with appearances in television and film, including joining the cast of ‘30 Rock’ just to poke fun at herself with the line, “Help me, Liz Lemon, you’re my only hope!” Even fictional twin brother, Luke Skywalker, joined her in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back to keep comedy hope alive. 

While not yet confirmed, Mark Hamill (looking rough) has suggested that he may also be onboard to return the Jedi to film.

If Princess Leia’s star-crossed lover, Han Solo, isn’t too busy filming Anchorman 2 to join the fun, our threesome will be complete.
