Carrie Fisher scared off friend's sexual predator with cow tongue threat

Carrie Fisher scared off friend's sexual predator with cow tongue threat

It should come as no surprise that Carrie Fisher went all-out when one sleazy producer sexually assaulted a close friend of hers. But even in spite of that sadness, there are some posthumous anecdotes we hear that are so quintessentially Carrie that we have to laugh through the tears. She is Carrie Fisher, the original princess who punches.

The American film producer and executive had been accused of sexual harassment, assault, and rape by a number of women this month, and the co-founder of the Miramax and The Weinstein Company was ousted from his company, expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and denounced by politicians he had formerly supported. She called into a local radio station in Tucson and spoke of an appalling experience with an Oscar-winning producer in 2000 (she declines to say who). The note read "If you ever touch my darling Heather or any woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box". "I knew he would probably be there, so I went to his office and personally delivered a Tiffany's box wrapped with the white bow".

According to Ross, the producer forced himself on top of her during a meeting that she believed was planned to just discuss a project.

"It happened so quickly that I was ashamed of myself, I thought I did something wrong".




Ross explained that she was new to Hollywood at the time of the incident and she had met both the producer and Fisher online through chat rooms. "She put things out there and in your face".

"I thought maybe by meeting with him, by having lunch or dinner with him that I was asking for it". "There's a very well-known director who I have been friends with for a long time - I thought that he was fantastic".

Among those she confided in was Fisher, who chose to take action. "I got a message from somebody who said, 'Hey I just wanted you to know that I appreciate you speaking up, and [the director] raped me and you should know about it.' People are feeling safe now to come forward".
