Carrie Fisher is best known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars trilogy. She’s also a bestselling novelist, a performance artist and a screenwriter. She beat some big Hollywood actresses when she landed the role of Princess Leia like Jane Seymour and Meryl Streep. However, her big role also brought the attention to one particularly hilarious and stupid thing she did while filming Star Wars.
One little known fact is that Fisher wore absolutely no underwear while playing Princess Leia. George Lucas, the director of the original trilogy, managed to convince the actress that there was no underwear in outer space. It’s unknown why she took his joke at its face value, but she didn’t wear lingerie during the scenes. And people say you have to be smart in order to become an actor!
