Carrie Fisher gave one man a tongue lashing he's unlikely to forget

It has the late and great Carrie Fisher as its protagonist.

You know Princess Leia would not leave you hanging, especially when it came to fending off predatory Hollywood producers. After he picked Ross up in his auto, the unnamed producer pulled over and held her down against the vehicle seat.

Ross told of how she made contact with the producer in the hopes of becoming part of his next project.

After fighting him off, Ross - who recently retold this story to Tucson, Arizona's radio station 94.9 MixFM - says the producer shouted, "You'll never make a movie in my town and get the F out of my auto". Heather said Carrie told her she went into his office and placed a box wrapped in wrapping paper and a white bow on his desk.

As Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment controversy continues to rock Hollywood, the scandal has caused an old story about Carrie Fisher to enter the spotlight. The actress hand-delivered a gift-wrapped box from Tiffany's containing a cow's tongue along with a scathing note to the Oscar-winning producer some years ago.

The Star Wars actress made it very clear how she felt about sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour, and apparently hand-delivered a gift-wrapped gift to the producer. "And I thought, 'Well, maybe by meeting up with him.I was asking for it'".

"Jack would say, "Mummy I don't have to poo in a box again do I?' And I would say 'yes, do it", she told Corden.

Ross also disclosed that she had initially thought she would be "protected" in the industry because she didn't fit in with Hollywood's standards of beauty, but her experience confirms that sexual assault can happen to all women and men.

"[Carrie] was true", Ross said.

You can listen to Ross' retelling of the whole experience in the clip above. Charisma runs thick within this family, and so we've compiled some of the best shots of both Reynolds and Fisher for a look back on their story together.
