When actress, director, and general multi-hyphenate trailblazer Penny Marshall died earlier this week, one of the trending topics that followed the news was her BFF status with Carrie Fisher — fun quotes they said about each other, some cute photos, you name it. We love it! But despite the very public celebration of their friendship on social media, the women enjoyed spending time together away from life’s flashbulbs and recorders, really only regaling us with their life’s anecdotes through memoirs and rare interviews. “We’ve lasted longer than all of our marriages combined. Our crazy lives have meshed perfectly,” Marshall perhaps put it best in her 2012 memoir. “We’ve always said it’s because we never liked the same drugs or men, but I know there’s more to it.” Here, let’s take an abridged look at the early stages of their pairing, which we promise we won’t refer to as “friendship goals.” Read More here

Carrie Fisher has remained one biggest icons in fandom for a reason. If it wasn’t her role as Princess Leia Organa in the Star Wars franchise, then it was her work as an author. She was the voice for young women everywhere, and she used her platform to talk about mental illness, drug addiction, and what it meant to accept yourself for who you are. Read More here

When Carrie Fisher’s health deteriorated rapidly and she passed away suddenly in late December of 2016, movie fans of all kinds were in mourning. Regardless of whether you’re a Star Wars fan or not, her passing was tragic and unfortunate, to say the least. She was a natural-born talent, obviously inheriting a knack for show business from her mom and dad. The daughter of Old Hollywood powerhouse Debbie Reynolds and pop musician and actor Eddie Fisher, Carrie was initially reluctant to assimilate into the Hollywood lifestyle of her parents. She’d dabbled in acting, but her role of Princess Leia was definitely her big break—it arrived while she was in school, trying to finish her degree. From that point forward, she would be remembered for her outspokenness when it came to mental health and her signature sardonic sense of humor in addition to her numerous famous roles, as well as her lesser-known role as a Hollywood script doctor.

Carrie Fisher’s brother, who is also Debbie Reynolds’ son, said he is auctioning off some of their collection for a good cause. Profits from the auction will go towards UNLV’s Debbie Reynolds Scholarship for the Arts, he said. Debbie Reynolds was a huge collector. Her son, Todd Fisher said they have warehouses full of items from movie sets, other movie stars and of course, Star Wars memorabilia. Fisher said getting rid of the stuff for a good cause is what his mother would have wanted. Read More here

The mother-daughter duo of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher seemed to embody Tinseltown’s ups and downs. Their talents were very different but complementary, writes Amy Nicholson. Read More here

Also recognized were Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land,” Viola Davis and the late Carrie Fisher. Read More: // here

If you were a kid in the late seventies, there’s a good chance that you played with an action figure of Carrie Fisher. “Star Wars” was a revelation when it came out, in 1977—it redefined our pop-cultural world, thrillingly, making us feel the way the swashbuckling John Williams title theme sounded. Girls of my generation, and the ones that followed, admired Princess Leia, and identified with her—not just because we loved her but because, like Wonder Woman among the Superfriends, she was the only girl in the gang. (Playing with the action figures, my best friend, a boy, was some combination of Luke, Han Solo, Darth, Chewy, R2-D2, and the Stormtroopers; I was Princess Leia.) Onscreen, Princess Leia was wonderful—a smart, spiky, funny heroine, vulnerable and tough at once, unfazed by her absurd braid buns, not putting up with any mishegas from Luke Skywalker or Han Solo. (“Aren’t you a little short for a Stormtrooper?” she asks Luke, when he comes to rescue her.) As a mythical space heroine, Carrie Fisher read as a real person. As a kid enchanted by all of it, you, even a non-sci-fi-loving girl, could connect to this fanciful outer-space world. Read More: // here

It’s hard to talk about Carrie Fisher without first remembering her most iconic role: Star Wars’s Princess Leia. But the actress, who passed away today in California, was more than any one part. An enduring presence in Hollywood since childhood as the offspring of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Fisher stuck with the glitz and the glamour, surviving scandals, career setbacks, and addictions, eventually emerging as a performer who was both utterly unafraid of the opinions of others and seemingly immune to the film industry’s phoniness.
