Carrie Fisher's quotes

  • I was street-smart, but unfortunately the street was Rodeo Drive.
  • I have no ambitions as an actress. I'm going to do a day's work on Scream 3 (2000), but that's all I can handle, a day's work.
  • [on her father's gossipy 1999 autobiography] I'm going to have my DNA fumigated.
  • I always wanted to do what my mother did-- get all dressed up, shoot people, fall in the mud. I never considered anything else.
  • You can't find true affection in Hollywood because everyone does the fake affection so well.
  • Females get hired along procreative lines. After 40, we're kind of cooked.
  • [on merchandising for Star Wars (1977)] I signed my likeness away. Every time I look in the mirror, I have to send [George Lucas] a couple of bucks.
  • My father [Eddie Fisher] was a short Jewish man. My husband [Paul Simon] was a short Jewish man. Go figure.
  • [on working with Harrison Ford on Star Wars (1977)] [Mark Hamill] was 24, I was 19 and he [Harrison] was 33. He was like the big man on campus. You looked at him and you said to yourself, "He's going to be a star".
  • [on why gaffer's tape was sometimes used under her Princess Leia costume in Star Wars (1977)] As we all know, there is no underwear in space.
  • [about the filming of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)] [Mark Hamill'] was off on Dagobah while [Harrison Ford] and I were were getting drunk in Cloud City.
  • I was born into big celebrity. It could only diminish.
  • I've got a lot of photos of me when I was very young at parties with celebrities, but I don't really remember the people or when the photos were taken.
  • I think of my body as a side effect of my mind.
  • [on success] There is no point at which you can say, "Well, I'm successful now. I might as well take a nap".
  • [on time] Instant gratification takes too long.
  • [on experience] Maturity: A stoic response to endless reality.
  • [on the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney] I'm now a Disney Princess!
  • [why Princess Leia never got her own light saber] Even in space, there's a double standard.
  • [on her role as Princess Leia] I got to be the only girl in an all-boy fantasy, and it's a great role for women. She's a very proactive character and gets the job done. So if you're going to get typecast as something, that might as well be it for me.
  • [2008, in "Wishful Drinking"] Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.
  • [on being asked to lose weight for a part] They always do [ask me]. They want to hire part of me, not all of me. They want to hire about three-fourths, so I have to get rid of the fourth somehow. The fourth can't be with me. I made a joke!"
  • [on being the daughter of a Jewish father and Protestant mother] I always felt the Jewish part more. In fact, growing up I felt like a Jew among WASPs.
  • I think I am Princess Leia; Princess Leia is me. It's like a Möbius strip tease.
  • If my life wasn't funny it would just be true, and that is unacceptable.
  • Don't slide through life. Savor it. Slow down. Be kind. Pay attention. Because this isn't going to happen again.
  • We treat beauty like an accomplishment, and that is insane. Everyone in L.A. says, 'Oh you look good,' and you listen for them to say you've lost weight. It's never 'How are you?' or 'You seem happy!
  • [on the metal bikini she wore in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983)] It was like steel, not steel, but hard plastic, and if you stood behind me you could see straight to Florida. You'll have to ask Boba Fett about that.
  • The only reason to go into acting is if you can kill a giant monster.
  • [on meeting Richard Nixon] My mother's fault. I said to her, 'I will not go. I want him impeached.' She said, 'I will take away your credit cards.' I said, 'I'm coming'.
  • [on the next 'Star Wars' film, after Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017) finished filming (which will sadly not happen)]: I'd better be at the forefront of Episode IX!
  • [on the order the Star Wars films should be watched] Watch the ones that I'm in and then you can do what you want.
  • Nothing is ever really over...just over there.
