And while Carrie Fisher died a year ago, a Hollywood sexual harassment story shared by Fisher's friend to a Tucson, Arizona, radio station proves that the beloved actor and writer would not have tolerated any of this.
"I felt safe thinking, 'I'm overweight, I'm not attractive to these people, I'm not looking to become an actress, '" Ross said. Because you just don't give out dead animal parts without making sure people know who it came from.
Ross says she met the producer online and that they set up a meeting after he expressed interest in her working on his latest project. Carrie then placed it inside a Tiffany's box.
When Heather asked what was inside Fisher revealed, "It was a cow tongue from Jerry's Famous Deli with a note saying "If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box". Per Ross: "About two weeks later, [Fisher] sent me a message online and she said, 'I just saw (blank) at Sony Studios". "I miss her dearly".
She added that knowing Fisher had her back left an impact on her.
In conversation about the rising allegations surrounding producer Harvey Weinstein, Heather Ross, a friend of Fisher's, shared a story about Fisher's response to another Hollywood producer for his inappropriate behavior.
The world is devastated by the loss of both Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, within one day of each other. "When it happened, it happened so quickly that I was ashamed of myself. She spoke out and she put things out there in your face", she said.
Being the badass that she was and a totally loyal friend, Fisher chose to take matters into her own hands.
Multiple allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment against Weinstein, 65, came to light in an October 5 New York Times exposé and were compounded by an investigation by the New Yorker. He has since been fired from his job at The Weinstein Company, and been stripped of his lifetime membership to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
