Chris Jones from the Chicago Tribune conducted an interview with Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher the other day. The interview focuses on Carrie’s book and play “Wishful Drinking” which is available on DVD (via HBO).

Q: Among Hollywood celebrities with famously complex childhoods, you are an uncommonly good writer.

A: I fell in love with words early on. Books were my first drugs, they were a perfect escape. They’re structured, organized and they have happy endings. There is an internal life, whereas showbiz is so external. The books I liked most were novels. They make you an observer. I always was an observer.

The interview is actually kind of harsh with some cold sounding questions, however Carrie adamantly answers every one of them and some of the answers are pretty insightful. You can read the full interview here.
