Dass Carrie Fisher kein Kind von Traurigkeit ist, hat sie schon in ihrem Buch „Wishful Drinking“ aufgeschrieben. Ob da auch drinsteht, dass sie am Set von „Empire Strikes Back“ gekokst hat (auf Hoth, dem Eisplaneten, umgeben von jeder Menge, naja, Schnee!), so wie sie es jüngst ABC News erzählt hat, weiß ich nicht, aber es passt wunderbar ins Bild: Prinzessin Leia rockt derbe!
"We did cocaine on the set of Empire, in the ice planet," Fisher said in Sydney. "I didn't even like coke that much, it was just a case of getting on whatever train I needed to take to get high."
During that same year, 1980, Fisher played the part of a manic ex-girlfriend in The Blues Brothers alongside her then boyfriend Dan Aykroyd, and John Belushi. One of Hollywood's most infamous stories of excess, Belushi recognised Fisher as a kindred spirit and brought her into his inner circle prior to his death from cocaine and heroin. "Hanging out with them didn't help and John actually recognised it in me," she remembers.
"He said to me once, 'You and I, we're alike, we're not like them', referring to his wife and Danny (Aykroyd).
