When Carrie Fisher got into acid, her famous mom called up Cary Grant and had him try to get her off it. Stars! They're… not like us at all. Did the Grant intervention help? Hell no. "I kept eating acid," Carrie admits, and that's not the only dirt she offers to Matt Lauer on Today. She's out promoting her warts-and-all memoir, Wishful Drinking, and she tells Matt all about the husband who left her for another man, the electroshock therapy she tried for her bipolar disorder, and the weight George Lucas made her lose for Star Wars. Lauer seems positively tickled by the divine Ms. Fisher, and can barely contain his glee. Clip above.
Also nice to know even (probably especially) starry moms will recast one's mental state for the viewing audience.
Thanks Jessica and Jezzie - as you know it's slamming winter rain in NYC; I needed this today. :-)
P.S. Does anyone else think Matt is so sleep deprived that he needs some Continuing Ed in "How to Interview"?
