WATCH: Carrie Fisher Is Comedy Gold
This Good Morning America interview did not go according to plan.
If you need any reason to follow the Star Wars: Force Awakens press tour, let it be Carrie Fisher. Never mind the chance to discover potential plot points or learn about actors’ experiences on set, because Carrie Fisher is comedy gold.
Case in point, the OG Star Wars heroine turned up onGood Morning America with zero detectable fucks given. Sitting down for what was meant to be the usual run-of-the-mill, glib interview with host Amy Robach, Fisher insisted on having her pet dog with hanging tongue syndrome be part of the interview.
Because Carrie Fisher can do anything.
The six-minute-long interview then gloriously veers off topic into subjects like being an older woman in Hollywood, how ridiculous it is she’s now “General Leia,” and how absurdly hot host Amy Robach is. Word.

And in case you needed any further reason to love Carrie Fisher, let us remind you that she recently gave this killer response to the controversy over her iconic skimpy metal bikini. About the bikini being retired from merchandise and marketing, Fisher told the Wall Street Journal, “It’s stupid.”
The furor ignited when a father’s missive about the bikini being sold went viral. His beef: He didn’t want to explain it to his daughter. “Tell them that a giant slug captured me and forced me to wear that stupid outfit, and then I killed him because I didn’t like it. And then I took it off,” Fisher said matter-of-factly.
We can’t wait to see more of Fisher come December 18 for the US premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
