DAYTON, OH (WDTN-WBDT) - The daughter of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher became a cultural icon in her own right at the age of 19, when she starred as Princess Leia in the Star Wars trilogy.
In WISHFUL DRINKING, she tells the true and intoxicating tale of her life as a Hollywood legend - with all the wry wit she poured into such bestsellers as Postcards from the Edge - in an uproarious and sobering look at her "Hollywood hangover."
An actress, screenwriter and bestselling author (Postcards from the Edge, The Best Awful, and Wishful Drinking), Carrie Fisher is the daughter of the late singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds, known as "America's Sweethearts" in the late 1950s.
She became a cultural icon at age 19 after starring as Princess Leia in the first Star Wars trilogy in the 1970s.
Despite growing up with "Hollywood royalty" and experiencing early fame of her own, Fisher's life had its challenges, as she reveals in this uproarious and sobering account.
Combining wry wit and raw facts, WISHFUL DRINKING reveals her own hilarious slant on the not-so-glittering side of being a celebrity.
Check out the Bucher's Beat story and the **BONUS VIDEO** of an un-edited (well almost, it is Carrie Fisher after all) interview only on wdtn.com.
