On Princess Leia’s Risque Look that Got Everyone’s Blood Pumping

“So here’s why you cannot wear your brassiere, per George. So, what happens is you go to space and you become weightless. So far so good, right? But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn’t- so you get strangled by your own bra. Now I think that this would make a fantastic obit- so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.” – Wishful Drinking

On Success

“There is no point at which you can say, ‘Well, I’m successful now. I might as well take a nap.”

On Hollywood

“It’s a man’s world and show business is a man’s meal, with women generously sprinkled through it like overqualified spice.”

On Her Bipolar Disorder

“I define it, rather than it defining me.”  – WebMD

On Love

“What I’ve learned over a lifetime is that love is an action … so I grew up feeling loved on one side [her mother] and not on the other [her father], which did not make me into the most confident of people … Billie [Lourd] has been shown love on both sides and it’s an amazing difference.”  – WebMD

On Being Asked to Lose Weight for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

“They don’t want to hire all of me—only about three-quarters! Nothing changes: it’s an appearance-driven thing. I’m in a business where the only thing that matters is weight and appearance. That is so messed up. They might as well say get younger, because that’s how easy it is.” – Good Housekeeping
