She Helped To Launch James Blunt's Career.
She Helped To Launch James Blunt's Career.

Referring to her as his "American Mom," James Blunt owes a lot to Carrie Fisher. When the "You're Beautiful" singer arrived in the States to record his first album, he had virtually no money and nowhere to go. Yet as luck would have it, Blunt had met Fisher the year prior in London as his then girlfriend was a friend of the Fisher family. Having formed an instant friendship, Carrie offered her home to Blunt while he was working to get his music career off the ground. But of course, she offered so much more than just a warm bed to sleep in. "Carrie fed me soup, showed me old movies and put a cardboard figure of her in Star Wars outside my room to protect me." Beyond that, Fisher actually came up with the title for his first album, "Back to Bedlam," that he largely recorded in her bathroom. "I recorded the album in the bathroom because she had a piano there, and we didn't have the budget to buy one or hire a studio," Blunt has said. "I never asked her why she had it in the bathroom."

You probably know that Carrie Fisher had an amazing sense of humor, but apparently so does Steven Spielberg. While filming "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," the famed director enlisted the help of Ford's former co-star Fisher along with Barbra Streisand of all people to pull a practical joke on his star. In the middle of shooting the scene where Indy is captured by the Thuggee, all of a sudden Streisand appears dressed up as a dominatrix and begins to whip him, shouting things like "This is for Hanover Street" and "This is for all the money you're going to make on Return of the Jedi!" Then Carrie pops in along with "The Empire Strikes Back" director Irvin Kershner, with Fisher running to the aid of Ford. The whole strange but hilarious ordeal was captured on film, albeit the available copy floating about the web isn't of the highest quality.
