Carrie Fisher did cocaine on set of 'The Empire Strikes Back'

Carrie Fishers addiction to drugs was in full swing during her role as Princess Leia in The Empire Strikes Back in 1980, it has emerged.


Melbourne, Oct 11 : Carrie Fisher's addiction to drugs was in full swing during her role as Princess Leia in 'The Empire Strikes Back' in 1980, it has emerged.

"We did cocaine on the set of Empire, in the ice planet," News.com.au quoted Fisher as saying.

"I didn't even like coke that much, it was just a case of getting on whatever train I needed to take to get high," she said.

During that same year, 1980, Fisher played the part of a manic ex-girlfriend in The Blues Brothers alongside her then boyfriend Dan Ackroyd and John Belushi.

"Slowly I realised I was doing a bit more drugs than other people and losing my choice in the matter.

"It wasn't funny when a friend died in my bed from an overdose and it took a long time for that to be... It's not funny still, but it's funnier, and not as tragic," she said.

She also refused to blame either her celebrity upbringing or fame for her descent into drugs.

"It's always been my responsibility, if it was Hollywood then we'd all be dope addicts," she added.
