The expletives came as Fisher joked about talking to her younger self.
Carrie Fisher swore during a live telecast at the Hollywood premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Monday night. The 59-year-old actress, who is reprising her role of Princess Leia in the hotly-anticipated movie, turned the air blue when she joked about talking to her younger self during the star-studded event at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles.
After her co-star Oscar Isaac, who plays X-wing fighter pilot Poe Dameron in the sci-fi film, asked her about her inspiration for reprising her role of Leia, she replied, “I asked the early, young Carrie Fisher what it would be like 48 years later … oh wait it’s 40. She wouldn’t speak to me. She was very busy, partying and making sure I would look like s**t later.”
But in an attempt to back-track on her expletives she made things worse as she continued to swear, saying: “I don’t mean s**t. By s**t I mean not as good as.”
The actress turned up for the premiere, but kept fans updated on her progress on social media. Posting a picture from her vehicle, Fisher wrote on Twitter: “We probably’ll be stuck in traffic thru first hour of film..bomb dogs currently sniffing the car-almost there (sic).”
Fisher eventually made it to the event, and walked the red carpet alongside her daughter Billie Lourd. She had earlier shared a picture of herself and Billie getting ready for the event in their dressing gowns, writing: “Check out pre premiere Robe Warriors!”
