, who played Princess Leia in the Star Wars trilogy, admitted to the AAP that she did coke on the set of The Empire Strikes Back and that she didn’t even like it, she just wanted to get high.

“We did cocaine on the set of ‘Empire’, in the ice planet,” Fisher told Australian newswire AAP, referring to the setting of the second film in the original “Star Wars” trilogy.

“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,” she said while visiting Sydney for her “Wishful Drinking” stand-up comedy show.

Unlike Lindsay Lohan who blames everyone and everything for her problems, Carrie doesn’t use her broken family or the pressures of Hollywood as an excuse for her addiction. Even though her mother, Debbie Reynolds, was married to Eddie Fisher who left them for Elizabeth Taylor, Carrie said, “It’s always been my responsibility. If it was Hollywood (to blame), then we’d all be dope addicts.”

Wow. A rational and mature perspective on what her life was and is now. No wonder this bitch isn’t famous anymore. She’s boring. Where are the threesomes, dead hookers and blow? Do you want to make it in this town or not?

    Look, people get old. And she’s STILL famous. She likely has a better income than Lindsay Lohan these days. Her writing gets published, and frankly she still has my respect as Leia. People can still watch the movies and see her young. The story isn’t even a news flash. Postcards From the Edge, which she adapted as a screenplay from her own book, starts with a director confronting her on some sort of adventure flick for coke.
