Carrie Fisher is making the rounds to promote the new Star Wars movie and, in the process, is reminding us all why the nation fell in love with her back in 1977. Fisher, now "over the age of, let’s say 40" (her words, not ours) went on Good Morning America to talk about the upcoming film and left a trail of discarded fucks in the rearview mirror.
"I wouldn't be anywhere else on this hour... except on TV." You could almost smell the irreverence in the air as Fisher exchanged quips with host Amy Robach and gently put Hollywood on blast their inability to get over the conversation of Fisher's weight loss for the film.
The crème de la crème was Gary, her French bulldog, whose tongue hung out of his mouth throughout the entire interview, but matched Fisher's sweater. While the whole interview eventually put Gary to sleep, it reignited our collective love for Carrie Fisher -- even though some people are getting all worked up over the iconic slave Leia toys.
