Did Carrie Fisher wear underwear during Star Wars? All we can say is bravo George, bravo. Not only did he create a masterpiece in 1977 with Star Wars, but it looks like he was a bit of a smooth talker too. Why do we say this? George Lucas convinced Carrie Fisher not to wear underwear in the film.
Back in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, Carrie Fisher was an up and coming actress who had managed to land a role in one of the biggest films to ever be made. It catapulted her fame, and she became somewhat of a sex symbol, especially for nerds around the world. Who can say they did not fancy the scene in Return of the Jedi where she was wearing little more than leather and chains. She really was a looker. Could this be the reason she was convinced not to wear underwear in the movie? It’s hard to say for sure, but lets keep investigating further.
For the keen eyed observers out there, they may have noticed a complete absence of underwear on Carrie Fisher in Star Wars. You might have even noticed gaffer’s tape under her costume. The reason for this is because George Lucas had convinced her not to wear underwear. He actually told her that there was no underwear in outer space, and she believed him. But is this out of character for her? It wouldn’t appear that way.
It has been revealed, several times, that during the filming of Star Wars Carrie Fisher had quite a severe drug problem. She was often on set high as a kite. Even more surprising was that she revealed how she got the role of Princess Leia. In a 2006 interview with Vanity Fair, she revealed that she got the role in Star Wars by sleeping with some nerd. She hoped that it was George Lucas, but she had taken too many drugs to remember.
