Carrie Fisher Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Carrie Frances Fisher was born on 21 October 1956, in Beverley Hills, California USA, into a show business family of Russian-Jewish (father) and British (mother) descent. Carrie Fisher was a well-known actress, screenwriter and novelist, perhaps best known for her role in the first “Star Wars” film, and for her books “Wishful Drinking” and “Postcards from the Edge”. She passed away in December 2016.

So how rich was Carrie Fisher? It is reliably estimated that Carrie’s net worth was $5 million, the main sources of her wealth being her careers as an actress and a writer, which began in the late 1960s.

Carrie Fisher Net Worth $5 Million

Carrie Fisher’s mother was actress Debbie Reynolds – who passed away a week after her daughter – and her father was singer Eddie Fisher, so show business was not a new thing for Carrie. Fisher studied at the Beverly Hills High School, but did not matriculate as she and her mother toured with a theater company. In 1973 Carrie appeared with her mother in the play called “Irene”, then that same year she began studying at London’s Central School of Speech and Drama. In 1975 Carrie was cast in her first role, in the movie called “Shampoo”, with such actors as Tony Bill, Goldie Hawn, Julie Christie, Lee Grant and others. This was the time when Carrie’s net worth began growing.

In 1977 Carrie was cast in the role of Princess Leia in the first “Star Wars” movie, later re-named as “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope”. This appearance had a huge impact on the growth of  Fisher’s net worth, especially at the movie became so popular all over the world, and Carrie’s name also became more recognised and acclaimed. Later she acted in other “Star Wars” movies, and even became something of a sex symbol.

During her career, Carrie Fisher appeared in over 40 films and more than 50 TV movies and shows and was nominated for and has won such awards as BAFTA , Primetime Emmy and Saturn among others.

In addition to her success as an actress, in 1987 Fisher published her first book, entitled “Postcards from the Edge” which was highly acclaimed. Other books published by Carrie include “Surrender the Pink”, “The Best Awful There Is”, “Delusions of Grandma” and others. All these books added considerably to Carrie Fisher’s net worth.

As well as the novels written by Carrie, she was also involved in the writing of plays and screenplays, which also contributed to her net worth.

In talking about Carrie Fisher’s personal life, she was married to musician Paul Simon,(1983-84), and is known to have had relationships with such celebrities as Dan Aykroyd, Bryan Lourd – with whom she has a daughter – Harrison Ford and James Blunt. Carrie also had  problems with drugs, partly through prescription medicine as she suffered from bipolar disorder.

Fisher was active until right up to her passing – she died on 27 December 2016 in Los Angeles, California, after apparently suffering cardiac arrest on a flight from London.

#Fact
1 Died the same year as her Star Wars co-star Kenny Baker.
2 She was considered for several roles which ultimately went to other actresses, including the role of Regan in The Exorcist (1973) which went to Linda Blair, the role of Iris in Taxi Driver (1976) which went to Jodie Foster, the role of Violet in Pretty Baby (1978) which went to Brooke Shields, the role of Rizzo in Grease (1978) which went to Stockard Channing, the role of Lois Lane in Superman (1978) which went to Margot Kidder, the role of Linda Barrett in Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982) which went to Phoebe Cates, the role of Elvira Hancock in Scarface (1983) which went to Michelle Pfeiffer, the role of Deborah Gelly in Once Upon a Time in America (1984) which went to Elizabeth McGovern, the role of Maerose Prizzi in Prizzi's Honor (1985) which went to Anjelica Huston, the role of Charlie in Top Gun (1986) which went to Kelly McGillis, the role of Alex Forrest in Fatal Attraction (1987) which went to Glenn Close, the role of Katharine Parker in Working Girl (1988) which went to Sigourney Weaver, the role of Vicki Vale in Batman (1989) which went to Kim Basinger, the role of Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman (1990) which went to Julia Roberts, the role of Kate McCallister in Home Alone (1990) which went to Catherine O'Hara, the role of Thelma Dickinson in Thelma & Louise (1991) which went to Geena Davis, the role of Catherine Tramell in Basic Instinct (1992) which went to Sharon Stone, and the role of Annie in Speed (1994) which went to Sandra Bullock.
3 As well as working as a script doctor for films, she also polished scripts for George Lucas' television series Young Indiana Jones (1992). Lucas had directed Fisher as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) trilogy. There exists a Stars Wars script purported to be hers, which shows extensive pen and ink changes to the dialog, perhaps marking the beginning of the script doctor part of her career. Lucas later hired her to polish the scripts of the original trilogy's prequels Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999), Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002), and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005).
4 She turned down the role of Emmeline Lestrange in The Blue Lagoon (1980) which went to Brooke Shields, the role of Sarah Connor in The Terminator (1984) which went to Linda Hamilton, and the role of Kathryn Murphy in The Accused (1988) which went to Kelly McGillis.
5 She suffered an ectopic pregnancy whilst married to Paul Simon in May 1984.
6 She was well known for her sense of humor and quick wit. One of her father Eddie Fisher's first hits in the 1950s was a song entitled "Oh! My Pa-Pa". Her father, of course, had a scandalous affair with Elizabeth Taylor and ultimately left her mother, Debbie Reynolds to marry Taylor. When Fisher and Reynolds were making a joint television appearance, Fisher quipped that her mother could sing, too, and should have written and sang a song entitled, "Oh! My Faux Pas".
7 She died only one day before her mother Debbie Reynolds.
8 She co-starred with her daughter in Billie Lourd in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) and Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017). Lourd auditioned without Fisher's awareness.
9 Her final acting project was the third season of Catastrophe (2015). She was the only cast member allowed to improvise and her own real life dog Gary portrays her dog on the show. She passed away a week after finishing work on the show.
10 She was originally cast as Miss Scarlett in Clue (1985), but had to check into rehab a week before filming began.
11 She auditioned for the lead role in Carrie (1976), while Sissy Spacek auditioned for Princess Leia in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), as George Lucas and Brian De Palma were holding joint auditions. They ultimately swapped roles. Contrary to popular belief, Fisher did not turn down Spacek's role because of the nudity involved.
12 Her French bulldog Gary accompanied her everywhere, even onto TV talk show sets whenever she was a guest.
13 She admitted that she found it difficult to act across from Peter Cushing in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) for two reasons. She thought the dialog was awful, and Cushing was so nice and polite to her on set between takes that she found it very difficult to show the disdain her character, Princess Leia felt towards Cushing's character, Grand Moff Tarkin.
14 She accomplished a 35-pound weight loss in her preparation for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015).
15 In 1994, she did a rewrite of the script of Intolerable Cruelty (2003), shortly after the original script sold. The Coen Brothers rewrote the script years later and none of Fisher's work remained in the finished film.
16 In 1990, she sold the big screen rights to her book, Surrender the Pink, to Warner Bros. for $1 million. Steven Spielberg was producing, with Demi Moore attached to star. Fisher wrote the screenplay, but the project stalled in development.

21 She continued to date Paul Simon for 8 years after their divorce, until finally breaking up in 1991.
22 She was longtime friends with Miguel Ferrer, who encouraged her and helped her prepare for her Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) audition. Their mothers - Debbie Reynolds and Rosemary Clooney respectively - were both best known for their performances in hit 1950s musicals: Singin' in the Rain (1952) and White Christmas (1954).
23 She was author William Goldman's first choice for the character Buttercup in The Princess Bride (1987), a role which went to Robin Wright instead.
24 Her personal assistant was Kim Painter.
25 In her 2008 memoir "Wishful Drinking", she noted that, like her mother in Singin' in the Rain (1952), she became famous at age 19 for her role in a classic hit alongside two male co-stars. She also mentioned that the title of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) could also refer to her celebrity parents' infamous divorce.
26 She was good friends with Michael Jackson and Meryl Streep. Streep portrayed Fisher in Postcards from the Edge (1990).
27 She revealed in her memoir Wishful Drinking that she once had a romantic relationship with U.S. Senator Chris Dodd (D-Connecticut). When Dodd was asked for a comment by a reporter from The Kansas City Star in 2007, he explained that "it was a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.".
28 She wrote several novels, including the semi-autobiographical Postcards from the Edge, a thinly veiled study of the relationship between Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds. It later became the film Postcards from the Edge (1990), which starred Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine in the Fisher and Reynolds roles respectively.
29 She has one daughter, Billie Lourd, whose father is the film agent, Bryan Lourd. Fisher and Lourd never married. After he left her for a man, she used the experience as the opening premise for her novel, The Best Awful.
30 She was once engaged to Dan Aykroyd.
31 Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, lived next door to her for most of her life.
32 Weighed 7 lbs 2 ozs at birth.

34 She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and spoke on this topic to thousands of psychiatrists assembled for the American Psychiatric Association's Annual Meeting in May 2004 in New York City.
35 Former stepdaughter of Connie Stevens, Harry Karl and Elizabeth Taylor.
36 She had to stand on a box for many of her scenes with Harrison Ford in the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) trilogy because she was roughly a foot shorter than him and did not fit into the frame.
37 When asked to choose her favorite moment from the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) trilogy, she explained that her favorite moments were the arguing scenes between her and Harrison Ford.
38 She has confirmed in her autobiography that she disliked the "bagel bun" hairstyle she wore in the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). However, prior to filming, the studio had requested that she lose some weight first, which she hadn't. Out of fear of being fired for it, she was eager to comply with everything that director George Lucas suggested, which included the hairstyle.
39 She did her very first European signing in London, England in a hotel library on August 3, 2003. It was an exclusive one-day signing, and tickets limited to 500.

#Quote
1 [on being the daughter of a Jewish father and Protestant mother] I always felt the Jewish part more. In fact, growing up I felt like a Jew among WASPs.
2 They always do [ask me to lose weight]. They want to hire part of me, not all of me. They want to hire about three-fourths, so I have to get rid of the fourth somehow. The fourth can't be with me. I made a joke!"
3 George comes up to me the first day of filming and he takes one look at the dress and says, "You can't wear a bra under that dress." So, I say, "Okay, I'll bite. Why?" And he says, "Because. . . there's no underwear in space." What happens is you go to space and you become weightless. So far so good, right? But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn't--so you get strangled by your own bra. Now I think that this would make for a fantastic obit--so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.
4 "Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die." Wishful Drinking, 2008
5 The father who flipped out about it [Lei's metal bikini in Return of the Jedi], 'What am I going to tell my kid about why she's in that outfit?' Tell them that a giant slug captured me and forced me to wear that stupid outfit, and then I killed him because I didn't like it. And then I took it off. Backstage.
6 I got to be the only girl in an all boy fantasy, and it's a great role for women. She's a very proactive character and gets the job done. So if you're going to get typecast as something, that might as well be it for me. [On her role as Princess Leia]
7 I'm not as cooperative as you might want a woman to be ... Every man, I think, or at least the ones I end up finding, there's no such thing as a consort. All men are kings. That was my little discovery in the process ... I really thought men's fantasy is to have an intellectual geisha. So what I did was I learned to cook and I took a massage course. But that's not all of it. You have to also agree. [On her relationship with Paul Simon]
8 Even in space, there's a double standard. [On why Princess Leia never got her own light saber]
9 [on the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney] I'm now a Disney Princess!
10 [About what her father, Eddie Fisher, did to help Elizabeth Taylor after her husband Michael Todd's death] He rushed to her side, gradually moving to her front... He consoled her with flowers and, ultimately, he consoled her with his penis.
11 [When asked if the character Princess Leia was the dark side of the force in your professional career] Oh, no. It was fun! I was young. People want it to be a problem for me. No. Those are great movies. Why shouldn't I be proud of being in that? The dark side? You ever see Hollywood Vice Squad (1986) or The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978)? How about Under the Rainbow (1981)? Was Star Wars the dark side? There's so much competition for that one.
12 [on the cultural significance of her parents] I don't know if they were culturally significant, but they were very popular. My mother and my father were America's sweethearts. They literally received that tag. Even my parents sort of went along with the assumption that they were a good couple, but they probably weren't a very good couple. Anyway, my father was best friends with a man named Michael Todd. Mike Todd was married to Elizabeth Taylor. Mike Todd died in a plane crash, and my father consoled Elizabeth Taylor with his penis.
13 On experience: Maturity: A stoic response to endless reality.
14 On time: Instant gratification takes too long.
15 On success: There is no point at which you can say, "Well, I'm successful now. I might as well take a nap".
16 I think of my body as a side effect of my mind.
17 I've got a lot of photos of me when I was very young at parties with celebrities, but I don't really remember the people or when the photos were taken.
18 Leia is not a real character. She is more of a caricature, and is somewhat one-dimensional. It's not really possible to write out a list of Princess Leia's likes and dislikes. I do know her favorite color, though, it's white. She wears white all the time. But that doesn't help me much.
19 I was born into big celebrity. It could only diminish.
20 Describing the filming of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980): "Mark [Hamill] was off on Dagobah while Harrison [Ford] and I were were getting drunk in Cloud City."
21 Acting engenders and harbours qualities that are best left way behind in adolesence. People-pleasing, going on those interviews and jamming your whole personality into getting the job, ingratiating yourself to people you wouldn't f***ing spit on if they were on fire.
22 Explaining why gaffer's tape was sometimes used under her Princess Leia costume in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977): "As we all know, there is no underwear in space."
23 Describing working with Harrison Ford on the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977): Mark was 24, I was 19 and he [Harrison] was 33. He was like the big man on campus. You looked at him and you said to yourself, 'He's going to be a star.'
24 My father (Eddie Fisher) was a short Jewish man. My husband (Paul Simon) was a short Jewish man. Go figure.
25 On merchandising for Star Wars: "I signed my likeness away. Every time I look in the mirror, I have to send Lucas a couple of bucks."
26 Females get hired along procreative lines. After 40, we're kind of cooked.
27 You can't find true affection in Hollywood because everyone does the fake affection so well.
28 I always wanted to do what my mother did - get all dressed up, shoot people, fall in the mud. I never considered anything else.
29 On her father's gossipy 1999 autobiography: "I'm going to have my DNA fumigated."
30 I have no ambitions as an actress. I'm going to do a day's work on Scream 3 (2000), but that's all I can handle, a day's work.
31 I was street smart, but unfortunately the street was Rodeo Drive.
