I’m deeply saddened at the news of Carrie’s passing. She was a dear friend, whom I greatly respected and admired. The force is dark today!

I thought I had got what I wanted under the tree. I didn’t. In spite of so many thoughts and prayers from so many. I am very, very sad.

Carrie Fisher was a really, really funny writer and an awesome actor. That’s all I got right now. I dunno what else there is. Dammit.

R.I.P. Carrie Fisher. Seeing her again on talk shows was such a thrill. So hilarious & fearless when she was being herself.

I met Carrie Fisher at a premiere once. She was kind and gracious, had her daughter with her.

No. No. Fuck this shit. Carrie Fisher is a fucking legend and this is bullshit.

Carrie Fisher was awe-inspiring because she was just so completely… HER. She aged, gained weight, got sick, got better, with no shame.

Carrie Fisher was smart, funny, talented, surprising, and always a hell of a fun time to be around. Family Guy will miss her immensely.

Thank you Carrie Fisher for my childhood.

Carrie Fisher spoke openly about her struggles w mental health. To me she was a hero – not only in the stars – but here on Earth as well. 💔

Not Carrie Fisher. Just. Not. Carrie Fisher.
