Carrie Fisher has admitted that she slept with a number of ‘nerds’ who were obsessed with her Star Wars character Princess Leia.
The actress was idolised by a generation of sci-fi fans, thanks to the famous scene which saw her wearing a gold ‘slave girl’ bikini, and she has revealed that many wanted to live out their sexual fantasies with her.
‘I certainly have, along the way, slept with a nerd. But I don’t think I ever got anything out of it except the sex. It was probably good. Nerds will surprise you. They’re way more enthusiastic. More bang with your buck,’ she told the New York Daily News.
The actress also teased fans by revealing how the trilogy’s director George Lucas told her to go braless under her white costume.
‘I asked George to explain it to me and he said, “When you go into space, you’re weightless and then your body expands. But your bra doesn’t.” So he told me you’d get strangled by your bra,’ she added.
In a previous interview with Vanity Fair magazine, Carrie revealed that she got the role in Star Wars, which propelled her to fame at the age of 19, after she ‘slept with some nerd’.
