Carrie Fisher sent a cow’s tongue to a Hollywood producer who sexually assaulted her friend, it has been revealed.
The late actress’ friend Heather Ross praised Carrie for her “protective” nature when she spoke about her own experience of being harassed by a film producer, in response to the ongoing Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Speaking to US radio station 94.9 MixFM, Heather revealed that she met with a “high-profile, Oscar-winning producer” to discuss a project.
Heather told how he picked her up in his car, and then he flipped her seat back and “all of a sudden he was on top” of her.
“He has his right hand that was busy and his left hand was on my chest by my neck holding me down.
“He said ‘you’ll never make a movie in my town, get the F out of my car. I was shocked, I got out of that car… I literally ran. I didn’t know what this guy was going to do to me.”
She then revealed the epic way her close friend Carrie Fisher dealt with the incident, after she confided in her.
“Carrie Fisher was like a mother figure and she took care of people, which she did, and I was one of many. And when I told her about this, I sent her a message, I was like, ‘you’re never going to believe what happened’ and she was very protective of me and more scared for my safety than anything.”
“A few weeks later, she sent me a message online and said, ‘I just saw ‘blank’ at Sony Studios. I knew he would probably be there, so I went to his office and personally delivered a Tiffany box wrapped with a white bow.’
“I asked her what was inside and she said, ‘It was a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli in Westwood with a note that said, if you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box!’”
“It felt validating to know, OK, first of all, this woman who I love as a friend was not just a fake Hollywood friend. She was true, she did that all on her own, I didn’t ask for anything, that was all her.
“That’s who Carrie Fisher was. She spoke out and she put things out there in your face,” she added.
Carrie Fisher, who was best known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, sadly passed away in December 2016 after suffering a heart attack on board a flight.
