CARRIE FISHER R.I.P. 1956-2016

Carrie Fisher, the actress best known as Star Wars‘ Princess Leia Organa, has died on December 26, 2016 after suffering a heart attack. She was 60. Family spokesman Simon Halls released a statement to PEOPLE on behalf of Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd: “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. “She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly,” says Lourd, 24. “Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.” Fisher was flying from London to Los Angeles on Friday, Dec. 23, when she went into cardiac arrest. Paramedics removed her from the flight and rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she was treated for a heart attack. She later died in the hospital. Just in November, Fisher revealed her surprising on-set affair with Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford in The Princess Diarist, detailing the three-month fling during the making of the 1977 movie.

  2. Harry Reems will be wearing his Princess Leia bikini in memoriam for the next week.

    P.S.- He looks as bad as you think.

    By John C. Holmes on Dec 28, 2016

  3. Well, forget this idiot troll’s comments and remember Carrie Fisher as a film icon. What is jarring about the losses in 2016 is they affected worlds people have lived in for comfort from the real one: Star Wars, Harry Potter (Alan Rickman) the places music like Bowie’s and Prince’s took them. It is a hard fall to earth to realize we lost them and reality rears its head. I laughed when a man created a GoFundMe to keep Betty White from 2016. As if the Grim Reaper - who no doubt made his holiday bonus this year - could be bribed.

  4. RIP Carrie Fisher! Pretty sure nobody cares what reems would look like in a bikini but you holmes-trolling on a memorial page is in fairly bad taste.

  5. Let’s forget about these trolls and remember a great actress and cultural icon. What is saddening about these celebrity passings is they bring reality into so many worlds people ran for comfort from the real one: Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, the music of David Bowie and Prince which seemed to transport you to another reality. When our heroes pass it seems like we can never go back to a part of childhood we could enjoy. Time, in the end, is the ultimate cause of death for us all.

  6. Amen Tony P , Still in shock , Debbie Reynolds just past this evening no doubt because of the unbearable grief that she felt . Not supposed to outlive your kids . Life is very strange , it always ends with sadness , someone dies , people grieve , the happiness is between birth and death , remember Being a little kid and my mom taking me to see unsinkable Molly brown in the theatre , and being a very young man watching Carrie steal her only scene from Warren Beatty in shampoo a decade later in 75 when she was just 18 , that famous scene made you realize that she would be a star , all of these deaths just drive the point home of mortality , like Tony said when someone famous from our youth passes a part of us dies as well RIP all

  7. Also remember her stealing that scene from Warren in Shampoo , That scene set her on her way to Star Wars , tremendous screen presence , Coukd have been an even bigger star if she wanted it more but she didn’t want to play the Hollywood scene , Her mom a screen legend obviously died of a broken heart , very sad
