Star Wars Babe & DGAF Queen Carrie Fisher Has Died At 60
Just when we thought 2016 was done making us cry, Carrie Fisher, the iconic bombshell who played Princess Leia in the OG Star Wars, has died at 60.
Fisher allegedly suffered a heart attack this past Friday on a flight from London to LA. She was rushed to the hospital by paramedics, and reportedly died in the hospital.
The family spokesman released a statement to PEOPLE on behalf of Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, who stars on Scream Queens.
“It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning,” reads the statement.
Fisher had published her memoir earlier this year, where she detailed the affair that she had with Harrison Ford on the set of Star Wars (she was just 19), as well as other secrets from behind the scenes of the classic movie.
But while you may only know Fisher for how good she looks in a galactic bikini, she was also a writer, an advocate for mental health awareness, and a script writer.
We’re sad to see Carrie Fisher go, but we send our best to her family and hope to see the same badass power moves from her daughter, Billie.
