Carrie Fisher: ‘Star Wars’ Cast Looked a Little Melted

Star Wars Episode VII

Carrie Fisher says that the original Star Wars cast looked "a little melted" when they met ahead of shooting on Episode VII.

The 57-year-old actress reprises her role as Princess Leia in the blockbuster sequel alongside alongside Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker who are also returning to the franchise. She admits it was reassuring to see that everyone's appearance had changed 37 years on from the original. When talking to an audience at the Hay Festival in Wales, she said, "We all look a little melted. It's good to see other melted people. And it is good to have us all in a room because it's unique. I mean, I don't suppose they have reunions for the Gone With The Wind gang."

Princess Leia

"Elderly. She’s in an intergalactic old folks' home [laughs]. I just think she would be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle... The bagel buns and the bikini, because probably she has sundowners syndrome. At sundown, she thinks that she’s twenty-something. And she puts it on and gets institutionalized."

Sorority Row and Destination Mark Reemergence of Bad Teen Horror

As much as raping Asian horror films like The Eye and One Missed Call irked me, I’m fairly sure that Sorority Row and The Final Destination (trailer after the jump) are leaving me even more distressed at the fate of American horror.

By the looks of the trailer, the remake of 1983’s The House on Sorority Row strikes me as a bad mix of I Know What You Did Last Summer and The House Bunny (seriously, what is Rumer Willis‘s character from that film doing in this one?). I’m happy to see Carrie Fisher get work, although I find it disheartening that the only gig she can get is this egregiously-looking thriller. Then again, this is a Summit production…

Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher’s Secret Star Wars Tryst

Star Wars, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford

We all know Han Solo and Princess Leia had great chemistry on-screen—but who knew the two characters were just as hot off-screen?  While she didn’t elaborate on all the details, actress Carrie Fisher recently admitted to having a romantic encounter of some sort with former co-star Harrison Ford. 

During a British TV interview, Fisher said she went into the original installment with a plan in mind.  “I went on the film saying ‘I’m going to have an affair’, like it was a kiwi, an exotic fruit — because I’d never had one!”
