Star Wars Icon Carrie Fisher Shares Hilarious Experience of Being Recognized as Leia While Topless on LSD

It's no secret that the late Carrie Fisher loved to have a good time. Unfortunately, this also led to the Star Wars icon becoming addicted to different substances in the past. Despite all this, Fisher always maintained her sense of humor about her addictions and has even shared a hilarious story on how she once had an embarrassing situation involving some nudity, LSD, and a busload of Japanese tourists.

Fisher was one of the celebrities who was featured in the Netflix documentary Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics where people shared their stories about being under the influence. Not surprisingly, Fisher's experience happened at a time when Star Wars was a big thing and Princess Leia was easily recognizable.

Fisher starts out by stating that she "took a lot of LSD" and "would organize trips around to places in the world simply to take acid there." She also admitted that she would "forget that I looked like someone named Princess Leia" and it was probably "not a brilliant idea."

You can read the rest of Fisher's hilarious story below:

"I went to Seychelles. And we took acid and oh my God, I was on the beach, and there was no one else on the beach. And so I'm with my Super 8 movie camera, that's when this was. And I'm filming my friend, and as this is going along, suddenly I sensed that there's been a disturbance in the Force. Don't put that in.
"Anyway, I turn around - and by the way I'm... I can't imagine that I'm nude, but certainly I'm topless. And we turn around, and there are a busload of Japanese folk that have just arrived, and it turns out where we are, it's where they bring the tourists to have lunch from all the hotels. I am at that time, I believe, Princess Leia in a profound way, and not clothed. I took acid and went, 'Oh, I see. This makes sense.'"

We're not sure if the Japanese tourists were able to snap photos for evidence but it does sound like Fisher always found herself in similar situations. Either way, we still love her for being so open about her experiences.
