Carrie Fisher Knew She Wanted One Thing Done Concerning Her Obituary Before She Passed

Carrie Fisher, best known for her role as the most kick-ass princess in any galaxy, passed away at the age of 60 this week. You may have heard she died of a heart attack, but the official obituary is that she died 'drowning in moonlight, strangled by her own bra.’ The source for this obituary is Fisher herself.

The 60-year-old iconic actress had a long battle with addiction and mental illness, and died four days after suffering a heart attack. In her 2008 memoir 'Wishful Drinking,’ she wrote how she prefers everyone to remember her: with a great sense of humor.

Fisher recounted a story in that memoir of why she couldn't wear underwear in Star Wars. George Lucas came up to her and told her she couldn't wear a bra in her costume. When Fisher asked why, he told her, "Because ... there’s no underwear in space."

"I promise you this is true, and he says it with such conviction too!" Fisher insists. "Like he had been to space and looked around and he didn’t see any bras or panties or briefs anywhere.”

Lucas later explained to Fisher that bras and the weightlessness in space don't mix. He told her, "But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn’t — so you get strangled by your own bra.”

Fisher loved that. “Now I think that this would make for a fantastic obit — so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra."

And to honor Fisher's wishes, we’re reporting just that.
