Princess Leia High During Star Wars: Carrie Fisher Admits Cocaine Use on Set

Carrie Fisher…Princess Leia…cocaine…Star Wars…ice planet…snow…there’s a joke in there somewhere.

Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia in the Star Wars trilogy, admitted to using cocaine during the filming of The Empire Strikes Back, the second Star Wars movie.

“We did cocaine on the set of Empire, in the ice planet,” Fisher told the Associated Press. “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.”

Carrie Fisher spoke to the AP while in Australia doing press for a stand-up comedy show based on Wishful Drinking, her autobiography.

She also said John Belushi—who knows a thing or two about drugs as he died of an overdose in 1982—even called her out on her addiction.

But Carrie Fisher does not blame her cocaine use and slowly growing drug addiction on Hollywood. Rather, she blames herself.

“It’s always been my responsibility,” she said. “If it was Hollywood (to blame), then we’d all be dope addicts.”
