Back in 1976, Carrie Fisher still had some of her baby fat on her and the producers of Star Wars told her she needed to lose some weight to play Princess Leia. Yesterday on The Late Show she told Stephen Colbert how she did it. She went to a fat farm with Lady Bird Johnson and advice columnist Ann Landers. The First Lady couldn’t remember the film title and the Landers had a lot of advice for her that we know she didn’t follow from her autobiographies.
Yes, she sort of talks about her affair with Harrison Ford, but not really. It was cute to see her blush about it.
But it was even more cute to watch Gary steal the show!
I wish I was a Star Wars fan because then I would be more excited for Rogue One after watching this trailer. To me the movie looks more interesting than Star Wars: The Force Awakens but considering I still haven’t seen the latter doesn’t say much for my snap review.
Are you excited to see it when it comes out on December 16th?
If someone were to tell you that the Fifty Shades Darker trailer would be viewed by more people than Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the first 24 hours, you would think they would need a good spanking. Well get the belt ready because that is the case.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the trailer was viewed 114 millions time and that is 2 million more than the highest grossing movie of all time in the US.
Wow I feel like I just had a run in with Christian Grey and not in a good way. Or maybe in a good way.
Ever since Mark Hamill picked up the lightsaber again to play Luke Skywalker, he has had big bushy beard. That all changed yesterday because he shaved it off.
Does that mean that Hans Solo and Luke Skywalker are hanging out in a Galaxy Far Far Away together? He said, “#FarewellFacialFur & #ByeByeBeard (at least til #EpisodeIX).”
Granted, didn’t they also say that Harrison Ford would be back for movies?
I guess we will have to wait until next December to find out. That is if you can wait that long…
Kenny Baker passed away today at the age of 81, just days before his 82nd birthday, according to StarWars.com. Baker starred in several movies including Time Bandits, The Elephant Man and Amadeus, but he was most famous for a role we didn’t see him in. He was the man behind R2-D2 in the first six Star Wars movies.
Even though he was only 3’8″, his heart was 7’tall. Today, remember the man who brought us so much joy by watching one of his many movies and beeping just like infamous character to keep his huge beautiful spirit alive.
