Fisher’s Embarrassing Parents

Published on November 25, 2008 with No Comments

Actress Carrie Fisher had a string of embarrassing run-ins with her parents when she was younger – because her family called in their celebrity friends to help in her battle with drugs.

Fisher has publicly spoken of her long-running struggle with a variety of addictions and has now revealed that her parents used their famous pals to keep an eye on her.

Fisher’s father, Eddie, was so sure she was taking narcotics he convinced the late Cary Grant to give her some advice.

Fisher calls the experience “completely humiliating” in her new book, Wishful Drinking.

And the actress’ mother, Debbie Reynolds, also spent many years worrying about her daughter – Fisher recalls one incident when she was in London and Reynolds panicked after being unable to reach her on the phone.

The Star Wars beauty added: “She called Ava Gardner, and she asks Ava to come to my hotel and get the concierge to let her into my room to make sure I’m not dead.”
