Sadly, Carrie Fisher battled drug addiction while filming the Star Wars movies, and (for the most part) evidence of her real-life struggles remained offscreen. But in Return of the Jedi, we fleetingly see Leia sporting a suspiciously long fingernail. One's left wondering if this fashion statement will be clipped the next time the Original Trilogy rounds the editing bay. [Reddit via Nerdcore]



Back in the day, my roommates and I used to have a game where we would take Carrie Fisher's lines in Return of the Jedi and try to work in as many references to coke as possible.

"Someone who loves you." And cocaine!

"We have... powerful friends!" With lots of cocaine! "You're gonna regret this!" We aren't gonna share our cocaine with you now!

"You're a jittery little thing." Maybe you just need some cocaine.

"She died when I was very young." It was probably the cocaine.

"No, it's not like that at all. He's my brother!" And he's bringing back cocaine for all of us!

Truly a magical time in our lives.
