Carrie Fisher Wrote Her Own Obituary And It Is Destroying The Internet

She wrote this brilliant obituary eight years ago

Carrie Fisher, the iconic actress who played Princess Leia in four Star Wars films, died today at the age of 60. Years ago, she described what she believed would be a “fantastic obituary” for herself.

In her 2008 memoir, Wishful Drinking, she recalls that the creator of Star Wars, George Lucas, told her she could not wear a bra under her white dress. When she questioned Lucas as to why, he replied, “Because… there’s no underwear in space.”

Lucas went on to say, “you go to space and you become weightless… But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn’t – so you get strangled by your own bra.”

Carrie Fisher went on to write the following:

“I think that this would make for a fantastic obituary. 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.”

Twitter users are celebrating Fisher’s life by sharing her now infamous obit.

We echo these words. RIP Carrie Fisher, she dies as she lived: drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra.

Godspeed, Princess Leia. Your sense of humor makes all of us feel better today.
